Have an Apple a Day

Not all white foods are nutritional wastelands. In a Dutch study, people who consumed the most white-fleshed fruits and veggies each day (more than 171 grams, or 6 ounces) were 52% less likely to have a stroke than those who ate little white produce (78 grams, or less than 3 ounces).

Apples and pears (the most frequently consumed of the pale produce) pack fiber and quercetin, an inflammation-fighting antioxidant.

Other white foods to try: Bananas, cauliflower, chicory, cucumber, garlic, and onions.
