Fruits

Blueberries
Blueberries are lined with anthocyanins that are low in calories, effective antioxidants that prevent cell damage and reduce inflammation.Some research suggests that these berries bolster brain function, so eating them may help keep your memory sharp.

Cherries
One cup of cherries has only 87 calories and 306 mg potassium capsules, a blood-pressure-lowering mineral that 98 per cent of Americans don't get enough of. (The dosage is 4 700 mg per day.)

Peaches
A medium peach provides more than 10 percent of your daily vitamin C and 285 mg of potassium. Its color comes from the antioxidants beta carotene and lutein. Some research suggests that the antioxidants in peaches may have cancer-fighting properties.

Raspberries
Like other berries, raspberries are rich in anthocyanins which improve the brain. But they have another big advantage: Each cup provides 8 grams of fiber, a vitamin that improves metabolism and can decrease cholesterol, protects against type 2 diabetes, and reduces the risk of certain tumors.

Watermelon
This seed, as its name indicates, is mostly water—91 per cent — so it's hydrating. Additionally, watermelon contains vitamins A and C, vitamins B, and potassium for only 46 calories a cup. It is one of the few antioxidant lycopene sources which can protect against certain cancers and heart disease.

Veggies

Bell Peppers
A cup of chopped red bell peppers provides more than twice as much vitamin C as a midsized orange, plus plenty of beta carotene, folate, and fiber.

Corn
In addition to fiber, corn contains disease-fighting phytochemicals as well as the minerals magnesium and potassium. A medium ear has fewer than 100 calories. Just be mindful not to slather it in butter and salt.

Eggplant
That rich purple color comes courtesy of anthocyanins, and eggplants supply potassium, too. Tip: To keep it from soaking up oil (and extra calories) when you cook it, just spritz with olive oil spray before you grill, roast, or sauté.

Tomatoes
A small tomato has just 16 calories. Whether tomatoes are red or yellow, they pack a decent amount of vitamin C. But only the red variety contains the antioxidant lycopene.

Zucchini
This favorite of low-carb dieters is not only low in calories but also high in potassium and manganese. Zucchini (and other summer squash) also supplies vitamin C and energy-boosting B vitamins.
