sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

After all the excitement and over-indulging during the Fourth of July weekend, it's time to get healthy!

An article in the NY Times opened our eyes to foods we should not only be eating, but also feeding our families. Dr. Bowden, author of The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, gives his advice for the 10 foods you should be consuming on a regular basis to help with our body image.

Not always a favorite with kids, but it's the best one for you. Beets are a rich source of folate and a natural red pigment that is known to be a cancer fighter.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Eat beets roasted, raw, or in a salad.
It's packed with nutrients such as sulforaphane, a chemical that boosts cancer-fighting enzymes.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Eat it in a slaw, or top off your burger or sandwich with it.
Swiss Chard
This leafy vegetable is loaded with caroteniods, which strengthen eyesight over time.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Chop and saute in olive oil. You can also incorporate other vegetables into your saute.
For people with high cholesterol or problems with their blood sugar, cinnamon may help control it.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Cinnamon can be sprinkled on coffee, oatmeal, cereal or baked goods.
Pomegranate Juice
Pomegranate juice is delicious, packed with antioxidants, and appears to lower blood sugar.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Drink it! Simple as that.
Dried Plums
These are actually prunes, but some get turned off just by that word, so dried plums it is. Prunes contains cancer-fighting antioxidants.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Wrap the dried plums in prosciutto and bake.
Pumpkin Seeds
You don't need to wait until Halloween to get your kids to eat these. Pumpkin seeds are packed with magnesium and the high levels of mineral are associated with a lower chance for early death.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Roast these with your kids or sprinkle on a salad.
You may think "yuck," but sardines are full of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and vitamin B that your body needs.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Buy sardines packed in olive or sardine oil. If you're gutsy, attempt to eat them plain, on a salad, or on toast.
Dr. Bowden refers to this as the "superstar of spices." It contains anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Spice up your scrambled eggs or any vegetable dish with turmeric.
Frozen Blueberries
It's possible that blueberries can strengthen your memory, or so says a round of animal tests. You can find frozen blueberries all year round.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Blend with yogurt or soymilk to make a tasty smoothie.
