Broccoli. Rich in antioxidants and selenium, broccoli could help prevent cancer. Its high fiber content will also help you feel fuller with fewer calories. Try adding broccoli to your Asian-inspired stir-fries for a quick, nutrient-packed meal. One last note: buy organic produce when you can to avoid exposure to potentially harmful pesticides. The Environmental Working Group provides lists of the “dirty dozen” and “clean fifteen” – lists of produce with the most and least pesticide residues, so you know which ones are most important to buy organic.
