The World’s Healthiest Foods!


Kale and Berry Smoothie

The most nutritionally dense foods on earth are not rare or expensive, yet few of us take advantage of what nature has to offer.

A few simple recipes is all you need to incorporate these healthy choices into your diet.

1. Spirulina: While the thought of eating lake algae might gross you out, spirulina is actually pretty tasty, especially blended into a smoothie or hidden in a chocolate bar. It has more antioxidants than any other food on earth and is loaded with protein and minerals making it the most nutrient dense food.

2. Kale: According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, kale is the most nutritious food, loaded with minerals, vitamins, fiber and amino acids, as well as important antioxidants that reduce inflammation and can prevent cancer. It’s also delicious and an easy to prepare, versatile food.

3. Hemp Seeds: What do you get when you combine protein, fiber, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals? Hemp, of course. This easily digestible seed is versatile, easy to use and extremely tasty, too.

4. Chocolate: Yes, you read right. Cacao beans are so nutrient-dense that scientists haven’t even begun to identify all the benefits in the little bean yet. Don’t grab a Snickers though—the good stuff is found only in raw cacao beans or nibs (or really, really dark chocolate). Minerals, vitamins and tons of antioxidants are great for your heart, skin, and release chemicals in the brain that make you feel like you’re in love.

5. Broccoli: Mom was right, you should eat your broccoli if you want a healthy digestive system and to decrease your risk of cancer. Broccoli has a wide range of yumminess too, from soups and stews to stir fry.

6. Spinach: Popeye was onto something with that spinach fixation. But skip the canned stuff and stick with fresh or frozen for an antioxidant, protein and fiber-rich burst of healthy goodness. Fresh or cooked, spinach’s sweet and hardy flavor brightens any meal.

7. Chia: The Aztec warriors may have died out, but their legacy is alive and strong in the chia seed. This yummy, unassuming ancient favorite is loaded with omega fats, protein and fiber. Dr. Weil says it’s a better choice than flax because “chia is so rich in antioxidants that the seeds don’t deteriorate and can be stored for long periods without becoming rancid.”

8. Berries: Unlike other fruit, berries tend to be less sugary and full of vital vitamins, minerals and those free-radical avenging antioxidants. Wild berries are always a great choice, especially black raspberries.

Abstain from Foods Which Cause Gastric Stomach

Gastritis, which is inflammation of the abdominal lining, could cause abdominal pain, gas and a bloated-ness, feelings of nausea, vomiting and perhaps a burning.

You will want to avoid highly acidic foods such as citrus juices or tomato based food products (eg. spaghetti, pizza).

You should also avoid alcohol & smoking, caffeine, and any spicy/highly seasoned foods.

Try eating smaller more frequent meals (or snacks) rather than the typical 3 large meals a day.

Some foods are not good for an upset stomach. Foods that are high in fat, contain fiber, are spicy and are greasy can cause further gastric complications. Avoid dairy products if you are actively vomiting or have diarrhea. Do not eat or drink foods or beverages that contain alcohol or caffeine, because these substances can promote dehydration. Avoid black pepper, chili powder, chocolate, carbonated beverages, fried foods, acidic fruit juices such as orange juice, broccoli, corn, onions, cabbage and cheese. Avoid eating large amounts of food.
