10 Super Foods

You’re probably already moaning in your head, “Oh, here’s yet another super food list.” Every health magazine and online blog presents its own version of the best foods, and none of them are the same. Where does that leave you? Confused I’ll bet.

I’m here to tell you that you can stop skimming random super food lists. Here we have compiled an indisputable list of only the healthiest foods. This “Ultimate” list will clear up any lingering questions you may still have in your mind as to which foods will pack the biggest nutritional punch.

These foods will improve your immune system, lowering your cholesterol, reducing inflammation, increasing your longevity, and helping you feel like the sex machine you really are. Make these foods the cornerstone of your diet and your doctor will smile at your next lab results.

The Ultimate Super Food List

1. Sweet Potatoes

Highest in Vitamin C, potassium, beta carotene and fiber, these orange jewels are sweet, smooth and versatile.

2. Beans

With high concentrations of protein, fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc, black beans provide 40 times the antioxidants of white beans.

3. Wild Salmon

This food always appears in the top lists and for good reason. The Omega 3’s in salmon help prevent or reduce sudden death from heart attacks and reduce inflammation. Avoid farm-caught salmon due to their unhealthy contaminants.

4. Leafy Dark Greens

Kale, swiss chard, mustard, collard and turnip greens are loaded with Vitamins A, C, K, folate, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, lutein and fiber.

5. Dark Chocolate ( minimum 70% cocoa)

1/4 ounce reduces blood pressure in otherwise healthy individuals. Rich in flavonoids and antioxidants, they raise good cholesterol (HDL) and put a stronghold on bad cholesterol (LDL).

6. Broccoli & Spinach

The Anti-Cancer Twins! This Dynamic Duo is very extremely high in folic acid and carotenoids. Steam or sauté with extra virgin olive oil and fresh garlic.

7. Pomegranates

Studies show that this ancient, delicious fruit is amazingly high in antioxidants. The juice is readily available in grocery stores and contains even higher concentrations of its’ best offerings. Chill and serve over ice for a cool and refreshing drink.

8. Unsweetened Yogurt

Packed with more protein, calcium, zinc, B-6 and B-12 than the sweetened version, yogurt is high in gut-friendly bacteria that keeps your flora and fauna up and running.

9. Garlic

Garlic is a powerful disease fighter that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, including E. coli, as well as ease inflammation and boost the immune system. Allow it to “breathe” for a few minutes after slicing to reap the most health benefits.

10. Avocado/Extra Virgin Olive Oil/Walnuts

The best of the best in the world of fats, these are the reigning royalty. If you never ate any

other fats again in your life and ate only these healthy fats, your arteries would send you an engraved thank you card.

Ultimate Super Food Recipes

These few ingredients can be the foundation of your diet. A breakfast of yogurt with walnuts and raisins sprinkled in makes a tasty way to start the day. At lunch, smoked salmon on whole wheat with spinach leaves is especially tasty with a dab of yellow mustard. For dinner, have some sweet potatoes roasted in olive oil and minced garlic to accompany your main dish. Wash it down with a little pomegranate juice and have a few ounces of dark chocolate for desert.

When you include one or two of these foods in each meal, you will begin to reap the many benefits they offer within a very short time. Start making healthier choices by putting these foods on your shopping list.

I already eat many of these foods, but must admit I don’t do it every day. Can’t say I mind having an excuse to eat more walnuts, garlic or sweet potatoes!
