Replace oranges with papayas

Excerpts from a 4/28/10 article by Carla Spuri on called Replace spinach with kale

For the best nutritional value, replacing oranges with papaya could make you healthier. Research recently published by Amway Global and supported by the Nutrilite Health Institute, showed that replacing regular staples for more unusual alternatives could boost the healthiness of diets.

The researchers said swapping to the unusual options would increase the phytonutrient intake in people's diets, helping to decrease the risk of conditions such as heart disease and cancer.

The study also suggests eating sweet potato instead of carrots and cooking kale instead of spinach.
