Chacón always keeps a bag of nuts and berries in her purse to ensure she always has a healthy snack on hand. Both berries and nuts are packed with nutrients, experts say. "Studies show that [blueberries] help protect against aging, cancer and damage to your DNA," says Julia Zumpano, RD, LD.


She Enjoys Watermelon

Chacón loves delicious watermelon, especially mixing it into a drink with raspberries. "Did you know watermelon has more lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable?" says Kristi Wempen, RDN. "Lycopene is an antioxidant linked to decreased risk of cancer, heart disease and age-related eye disorders."


She Loves Big Salads

Chacón likes to have a healthy, nutritious salad on the side with her meals. "Leafy greens are rich in a combination of vitamins A, C, and K; several B vitamins; and potassium," says Harvard Health. "They also contain fiber and are low in calories. As a general rule, the darker the green, the more nutrients it contains."


She Loves Traditional Mexican Food

Chacón says she can't live without good Mexican dishes, especially those made with guava. "This humble fruit contains high levels of lycopene," says William W. Li, MD. "Lycopene is a naturally occurring red carotenoid pigment found in certain fruits and vegetables that is effective at preventing certain types of cancer. It is loaded with vitamins that balance and regulate blood levels to help decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer."


She Loves Cold-Pressed Juice

Chacón enjoys cold-pressed juices, which experts say can be healthy (although blending is preferable to juicing). "If you don't enjoy eating fruits and vegetables, juicing may be a way to add them to your diet or to try fruits and vegetables you might not eat," says Katherine Zeratsky, RD, LD. "Consider blending instead of juicing. Blending the edible parts of fruits and vegetables produces a drink that contains more healthy phytonutrients and fiber. Fiber can help you feel full."
