I am on the verge of coming out with some breaking news about the power of food. Please just give me a week or two to get my latest thoughts to you. What I have discovered is so unbelievable, I never would have really believed it myself two months ago. But I now have the evidence myself and let me tell you my friends, this is powerful.
But until then, I have composed a list of some of the healthiest foods around. Note that I said “some,” because this is by no means an all-inclusive list. But everything on it is very healthy and you will not go wrong using this list as a guide to try some new foods!
Tomatoes – They have lots of lycopene which is a very powerful antioxidant. Tomatoes are low in calories and are a very rich flavored fruit.
Blueberries – are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids. These berries are also high in potassium and vitamin C.
Pineapples – are high in bromelain, which is a great natural anti-inflammatory, as well as being high in fiber.
Cherries – Are packed with anti-inflammatory properties and full of anti-viral and anti-bacteria agents.
Beans – are a miracle food. They lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar and insulin production, promote digestive health, and protect against cancer. If you think of fiber, protein, and antioxidants and immediately think whole grains, meats, and fruit, think again — beans offer all three in a single package.
Watercress – is a calorie-free food high in calcium and fiber.
Spinach – is high in iron and anti-inflammatories, as well as vitamin K, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, foliate, and magnesium. I also really love kale and collards. They are all full of lutein, a great antioxidant! Don’t ask for these at McDonalds though. They will throw you out!
Snow pea tips – get these at an authentic Chinese restaurant or Asian grocery market! Lightly sauteed in garlic (which is incredibly healthy) – delicious.
Bananas– are full of potassium and vitamin C, as well as fiber.
Apples– Apples are high in fiber as well their pectin takes the most amount of insulin to break down in the body, so they help regulate your blood sugar.
Did you notice that nowhere on this list are processed foods? All of the above foods are natural and can be found as organic. Now is the time of the year that most of these are readily available. I really suggest you find a local produce market or farmers market and make it a part of your weekend plan.
Eat well and rock on my friends. I’ll be back with some amazing news very soon!
