Citrus fruit--the redder the better.

When you choose citrus, think pink, but choose red. The redder the pulp of the grapefruit you eat, the more lycopene you get. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant credited for improved lung function, reduced cancer risk, and better heart health. Along with a good dose of Vitamin C, red pulp grapefruit can be a great way to meet your recommended five fruit and five vegetable servings a day.
