(WIAT) — Everyone wants to live longer, look better and be healthier.
However, is it possible to eat your way to better health?
Some researchers say that it is absolutely possible.
Starting the day with a glass of warm water with lemon cleanses the lymphatic system and helps detoxify the liver.
Additionally, dark, leafy greens, such as kale, are full of antioxidants and calcium.
Drinking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar every day can help cure a common cold and detox the body.
Eating an apple a day provides the body with vitamin C and fiber needed to help fight cancer.
Lastly, eating whole grains is advised because they are packed with enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
