Take a fruit like berries, kiwi, grapes, and cherries to neutralizes your free radicals.  When we take a heavy meal without add antioxidants it becomes harmful for health.

Drizzle vinegar on a salad with carbohydrate rich meal. Vinegar control rises sugar level after a heavy meal.

Drink wine in moderate amount. Cook in red wine or take a glass with dinner. It has antioxidants which neutralize bad effects of a fatty meal on the heart.

Add spices in your meal. A meal with 2 teaspoons of spices(cinnamon, turmeric, black pepper, cloves and oregano ) raise the antioxidants and reduce triglyceride and insulin level. They slow down fat absorption and free radical harmful effect after high fat and a high-calorie diet.
