Food for Women
The right dose: To be determined. But cooking tomatoes, and adding oil, makes lycopene and other antioxidants more readily available.
The right dose: 1-2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed per day since whole seeds aren't readily digested.
The right dose: At 36 calories per cup cooked, the sky's the limit.
The right dose: Two servings (about 4 ounces) of salmon, or other fatty fish, per week.
The right dose: Varies. But drink unsweetened 100% cranberry juice (60 calories per cup) to avoid excess sugar.
The right dose: Any amount. At a skinny 90 calories per six ounces and zero fat, it's a perfect portable snack.
The right dose: Since nuts are calorie dense, one ounce (20 halves/185 calories) is a good place to start.
