An article on Shine (Yahoo) speaks of 10 super foods for Spring time. These foods are known to lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer, and, while we’re at it, put you in a better mood.

We should all be looking forward to Spring/Summer for great fresh vegetables. For me it’s tomatoes, asparagus, corn, artichokes, avocados and berries. The ten foods listed in this article were:

  1. Artichokes
  2. Asparagus
  3. Avocado
  4. Blueberries
  5. Fava Beans (aka Broad Beans)
  6. Fresh Figs
  7. Leeks
  8. Oregano and Other Fresh Herbs
  9. Spinach
  10. Strawberries

Enjoy good eating this spring and summer and the good health benefits of eating well.
