Besides oranges, the best sources of vitamin C are, in alphabetical order, asparagus, blackberries, broccoli, cabbage, grapefruit, kiwifruit, mangoes, mustard greens, peppers, raspberries, strawberries, and tomatoes.
2. Select foods rich in carotenoids, notably beta­carotene. Research shows that these substances may playa role in preventing disease. Their orange color tells you that carrots, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe are excellent sources of beta­carotene. But so are many dark leafy greens, such as collard greens, kale, and spinach, as well as broccoli.
3. Be a semi­vegetarian. That’s someone who supplements a steady diet of vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fruit, and dairy products with occasional moderate servings of beef, poultry, and fish. The potential benefits are many: a lowered risk for heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, the maintenance of a healthy weight, and fewer digestive complaints.
4. Eat tomatoes and tomato products. One four­ounce tomato supplies about one­third of your daily need of vitamin C, plus a little beta­carotene, potassium, folate, and other B vitamins, iron, and fiber. Tomatoes are also rich in a carotenoid called lycopene, a potent antioxidant. The lycopene in cooked and processed tomatoes (sauce, paste, salsa, canned tomatoes) is more easily absorbed than that in raw tomatoes. Watermelon and pink grapefruit also contain lycopene.
5. Choose skinless turkey breast—it’s just about the leanest of all meats. A three­ounce portion has less than a gram of fat and 120 calories. Plain roast turkey is your best bet: turkey cold cuts and self­basting turkeys can be quite high in fat.
