Forget the hype of exotic Amazonian berries, which have one zillion times the antioxidants of other foods you’ve eaten in your life, but only come in powdered form at $100 a jar. Real super-healthy superfoods are grown locally and are available at your local fruit and vegetable stand, or supermarket.
Almonds: A great source of protein, fibre, B vitamins, vitamin E and cholesterol-lowering fats and phytosterols.

Broccoli: Rich in iron and a good source of protein, calcium, folate and vitamins C and A, broccoli has been linked to a reduction in cholesterol and triglycerides (Christiansen et al. 2010).
Dark leafy green vegetables: Kale, spinach and Swiss chard are all high in protein, low-calorie and nutrient dense.
Garlic: A Cochrane Library study showed garlic’s efficacy in terms of lowering blood pressure. Evidence suggests that garlic may be effective in fighting against certain cancers and reducing cholesterol.
Oily fish: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for cardiovascular health in that they keep blood pressure low and improve blood lipids.

Tomatoes: High in antioxidants, iron, and vitamins A and C. A 2010 British Association of Dermatologists study showed tomato paste helps protect against ultraviolet radiation.
