In brief: Real food

Mostly veggies, with one-two servings (small servings) of fresh fruit per day.
Real food is better than a supplement - avoid canned veggies and fruits - all the fiber is boiled out of them and many have added salt/sugar. Fresh is best - frozen is next. Also, skip the salty and high fat toppings (like ranch dressing) for the veggies -.
