The Anti-Oxidant Counter
A Pocket Guide to the Revolutionary ORAC Scale for Choosing Healthy Foods
By Mariza Snyder and Lauren Clum

A handy guide for supercharging any diet with the highest-rated antioxidant foods

Most diet books focus on what not to eat. This first-ever antioxidant counter does the exact opposite. With specific scores for more than 200 popular foods, the guide’s easy-to-access presentation of the groundbreaking ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale helps you determine which foods have the most antioxidant power. A piece of fruit is a wonderful, antioxidant-packed snack, but does it make a difference to have raisins instead of an apple or banana? With The Antioxidant Counter you find the answer in two seconds—raisins have more than ten times the antioxidants of apples or bananas! The authors show how simple ingredient substitutions can exponentially improve the ORAC score of common dishes, like replacing the zucchini and yellow squash in pasta with broccoli florets and red bell peppers for a five-fold boost in antioxidants. Also featured are a number of mouth-watering recipes for meals guaranteed to maximize health and minimize aging.
