Key Take Aways:

1. Wild salmon (5oz) - more omega 3's than 4 standard fish oil capsules. Richest dietary source of Vitamin D

2. Red quinoa - upregulates your internal antioxidant system, SOD (superoxide dismutase)

3. Watercress - more vitamin C than an orange

4. Fava beans - 10g fiber per cup

5. Cucumber - rich in potassium which regulates blood pressure
