150 Healthiest Foods

The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth according to Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S.

My last post explained the importance of variety in the diet. If you didn’t read it, check it out. https://debsholisticnutrition.wordpress.com/2011/02/11/variety/  Here is a perfect shopping list to help you add one new or one rarely eaten food to your diet.

Jonny Bowden does an excellent job explaining why each food made the list.  In addition, after each chapter he has an Experts’  Top Ten; the experts range from Loren Cordain, Ph.D to Jeff Volek R.D.,Ph.D.,F.A.C.N.   Here is my top ten list: Wild line caught salmon, Wild blueberries, Kale, Spinach, Broccoli, Almonds, Walnuts, Eggs (high quality, cage-free, organically fed), Green tea, and sea vegetables.
