20 Nutrient Dense Foods
There are a lot of Top 10 lists of super foods
around the internet. They promise to improve your health or help you with weight loss and they make it to this top 10 list for various reasons. Some lists include groups of foods such as "citrus" or "vegetables" while one list even includes milk and microwaveable brown rice.
If I was to put together a list of top foods to eat for health, it might include the crisp breads that I eat or the almond milk that I choose to use to replace dairy.
This list of 20 foods that I’m about to list are actually based on a nutrient density
score devised by Dr Joel Fuhrman author of Eat To Live, but they’re not the top 20, they’re the bottom 20 of a list of 30 top foods.
The top 10 super foods
were first published on my other weight loss blog
and I’m now continuing them here.

17 Foods That Heal And Natural Health
Who Else Wants To Learn What Foods Help Stop The Pollution Of Your Body And Start Healing It?
That's the headline that caught my attention.... I'll tell you about it in a moment, but first...
Imagine if you could just eat a food and …… everything in your life improves, your spouse improves? Your dog stops pissing in the house and your cat stops ripping up your furniture. Imagine if you could just eat a food and …. Your car got better mileage? Or your kids suddenly got better grades? Actually, I believe that one might be true!
When I drove cab a bunch of years back and I was learning about nutrition and weight loss (my weight loss story
), I began to realize and see the effect food has on people including their mood.
Two Categories Of Foods
I would pick people up from grocery shopping and would help them load their groceries into the trunk. I would see everything that they purchased and it usually fell into three categories, two of which were:
Dead – White and Processed foods
The customers were usually in a very bad mood and had poor complexion. They complained about a number of things including headaches, stiffness and frequent colds and the like.
Live Whole Foods
The customers were usually better dressed and in a much happier mood. They had clear skin and the trip was usually a lot more fun. They and their families were quite active with other physical activities.
Even today, 15 years later, the people who have the best success with their weight loss and health are those who focus on becoming healthy rather than on losing weight.
Natural techniques work
Whole live foods work. Foods are our fuel. They're from which our bodies create themselves every day and if we provide our body with better fuel then we build better bodies.
I've recently updated my website with articles about high cholesterol
, low cholesterol
, natural cure for high cholesterol
, natural cure for high blood pressure
, hoodia information for natural weight loss
because I am asked about these things on a regular basis.
My belief has always been that natural cures
work and if we eat better we become healthy.
While doing a bunch of research on the topics I listed above, I found a very interesting website that offers information on eating natural foods, 17 foods that heal
to be exact that seems to address a lot of things we have to deal with as we age.
I'd say it's worth checking out.

Why keep popping pills and wasting money on every new fad that comes along when you can simply eat these foods and be healthy the natural way?
