FROZEN GRAPE TIP: Wash and dry the grapes thoroughly then spread them out on a freezer-safe sheet pan or an ice cube tray. Put the pan or tray in the freezer until the grapes are frozen (about an hour). Then you can transfer them to a freezer-safe container or bag. Freezing grapes separately helps stop them from freezing together.

Eating antioxidant-rich foods is important because they help fight against diseases. Antioxidants are found in many different types of fruits and vegetables, which is why you should aim for including them at every meal and getting at least 5-6 servings a day.
Pineapples are a great source of antioxidants, and they can help to boost your immune system. They are also anti-inflammatory and can help to reduce swelling.
