This will build a habit, and more than likely it will continue. Here are 12 suggestions for foods that will help you to feel and look your best:

1. Apples: High in quercetin; protects the heart; prevents constipation; blocks diarrhea; improves lung capacity; cushions joints.

2. Avocados: Excellent source of unsaturated essential fatty acids; battles diabetes; lowers cholesterol; helps stop strokes; controls blood pressure; smooths skin.

3. Beets: Wonderful liver cleanser; controls blood pressure; combats cancer; strengthens bones; protects your heart; aids weight loss.
