Richard Hentschel and Laura Barr continue a good discussion on phytochemicals that come from our fruits and vegetables that provide the body with antioxidants that work against those radicals that can cause human health issues. Examples include Folic Acid, Vitamins A&E. While we all eat different kinds of grain, the focus should be on whole grains. Eating less processed grains provides the body with more of what it needs. Laura reminded listeners to eat a variety of vegetables and to include a variety of colors as well.
