9. Swiss chard
Swiss chard is a great source of chlorophyll, phytonutrients that may help prevent cancer, and it’s incredibly high in an antioxidant called lutein. “Lutein plays an important role in preventing age-related macular degeneration…the leading cause of blindness in older Canadian adults,” says registered dietitian Gina Sunderland. Next time you shop, skip the pricey, packaged salad greens and reach for an abundant bunch of chard.
