something i’ve been particularly interested in lately are super foods. what are the healthiest ingredients on our planet? what foods will give me the most nutritional value possible? i’ve read up on the subject and done a fair amount of research, and though there are no clear cut lists, the ones you’ll find below are what i found to be the most agreed upon ingredients.
eaten regularly, the following foods will help prevent cancer, ward off heart disease, boost your immunity and slow aging.
5. bok choy
17. olive oil
21. pumpkins (and acorn or butternut squash)
22. soy (tofu, tempeh, soy beans)
23. spices: cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, paprika, cayenne pepper and rosemary.
25. sweet potatoes
26. tea (green or black)
29. wheat germ
want more? honorable mentions were: artichokes, asparagus, beets, bell peppers, chicory, cherries & watercress.
my new goal is to put all these ingredients on my weekly shopping list. i can down these ingredients, no problem! what do you think? if any of them are new to you or you have questions about how to prepare them, feel free to ask in the comments section or explore the resources below. happy living!
