Many red fruits and vegetables have amazing vitamins and minerals such as lycopene, vitamin C, vitamin A, and also fiber that really helps with digestion. They also benefit the heart and the list of options include watermelon, strawberries, cherries, tomatoes, red bell pepper, red onion, and red cabbage.
