Since my first love is food, I am sharing the info below to include theses foods (from WebMD)

Foods with Q

Q is one of the most common flavonoids, and is present in many foods. It also appears in red wine, black tea, and green tea. When you get your q from fruits and vegetables, you reap the other benefits of those foods. You also increase your intake of fiber, which is lacking in the standard American diet.

Q is available as a supplement, often with a recommended dose of 500-1,000 mg per day. It’s considered safe to use, but may interact with several medications, including antibiotics and blood thinners. Doses over one gram may damage the kidneys.

There’s no recommended daily allowance for q, but these commonly eaten foods are good sources of it:

1. Onions

All onions contain q, but since it’s a pigment, red and yellow onions contain the most. To keep the q, peel off as little as possible of the outer layers. Onions contain many other vitamins and minerals, and they are especially rich in the vitamin biotin.

2. Kale

Kale has a well-deserved reputation as a nutritional powerhouse. Besides q, it’s also a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and fiber. Half a cup contains only 18 calories.

3. Cherry tomatoes

All tomatoes are good sources of q Cherry tomatoes are the best because they have the highest ratio of skin to flesh. They make a great low-calorie snack, with only 37 calories per dozen.

4. Broccoli

Along with q, broccoli is rich in vitamin K and vitamin C. It also contains another flavonoid, kaempferol, that offers potent antioxidant capabilities. A one-cup serving provides 5 grams of fiber.

5. Blueberries

Blueberries are antioxidant superstars. On top of q, they contain 17 different phytochemicals including resveratrol, the antioxidant best known for appearing in red wine.

6. Apples

Apples contain four different phytochemicals along with the beneficial fiber known as pectin. To get the benefits of q, eat your apples unpeeled. Apple juice doesn’t provide the same benefits as the whole fruit.
