    "You can cover this list of foods over a period of time," Goulart says. "You don't have to try to incorporate all 25 into your diet at one time.

    "I always try to encourage my clients to eat a wider variety of foods. We tend to fall into a habit of eating the same foods. I urge everyone to try new foods."

    OK, makes sense to me, Frances. But what about... gulp!... sea veggies?!

    "Sea veggies are so rich in nutrients that you only need a small amount," Goulart notes. "You don't have to track down the actual sea veggies.

    "Instead, you can find little shakers of granulated sea veggies and use it as a substitute for pepper when dining."

    "Soon after you start on my eating plan you'll feel more energy and find yourself clear headed," Goulart says. "The 25 super immunity foods help with your cravings for sugar so a nice side effect is weight loss."

    Goulart says a good juicer makes healthy eating a breeze. You can start your day with a nice glass of fruit or veggie juice.

    "It's a better eye-opener than coffee," she promises.

    Chew on these food facts from Frances

    - Dicing fruit into smaller pieces keeps oxidation to a minimum and preserves vitamin C.

    - Cooked broccoli is higher in the antioxidants called carotenes, but raw broccoli is higher in vitamin C.

    - Apple peels are rich in a compound that helps to halt the growth of cancer cells.

    - Orange and tangerine rinds are a good source of probiotics for digestive health.
