Curing Yourself with Food

The Five Healthiest Foods Pt 1

Part One

The Five Healthiest Foods. There are many foods that are healthy but some foods are so nutritious that they get moved to the head of the line.

These foods include salmon, soy, greens, berries and whole grains. Here we look at salmon, soy, and vegetable greens. Salmon is an excellent source of protein and it is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which are beneficial in lowering the levels of LDL or bad cholesterol in the blood and increasing the level of HDL cholesterol or good cholesterol in the blood.

Salmon is a very versatile food that can easily be substituted for other types of meats such as beef or pork in many different recipes. The American Heart Association recommends that everyone eat at least two servings of fish on a weekly basis and it strongly recommends the consumption of fatty fish or which salmon is one. It is best to choose wild salmon to eat.

Be aware that most canned salmon as well as frozen salmon is wild. Soy products come from soybeans and an example of a soy product is tofu. Soybeans boast high quantities of protein and protein is composed of all of the essential amino acids that the body requires.

Soybeans are the only known vegetable sources that can make this claim. But that is not all, soybeans are also very rich in the omega 3 fatty acids, the B vitamins, fiber, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and zinc. A regular diet that includes soy is one that will lead to an overall low level of total cholesterol, as well as LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.   

Quick Reflexology Fact

More than ever before in our history, we are in need of a way to unwind, and care for ourselves in an effective manner. The vast majority of people today are on the go almost constantly. This is only one of the reasons that people are looking for an effective way to escape the stress of daily life.

So is beneficial in preventing heart disease as well as osteoporosis, breast cancer and prostate cancer. All vegetables are healthy but greens are especially healthy.

Examples of the best choices of green vegetables include chard, collard greens, kale, bok choy, broccoli, asparagus, green beans, etc. The greens are all rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron and phytonutrients.

Broccoli for example is beneficial in preventing the onset of heart disease, diabetes and a variety of cancers. If the taste of broccoli is not to your liking then eat it in recipes such as in the Chinese dish beef and broccoli or in a stir-fry with soy sauce.

Another option is to eat broccoli raw but with other vegetables such as on a vegetable platter with a zesty dip for added flavor. As well green vegetables are low in calories and very high in fiber. Foods that are high in fiber are also filling so that means you do not need to eat too large a helping in order to feel that you have eaten enough.


Avoid buying cartons of juice. Most juices are full of sugar or sweeteners, even if they say they are sugar free. Fresh fruit is a better choice for adults who need to lose weight. Apples are perfect for a mid afternoon snack.

Greens can be eaten raw or cooked. Eaten in the raw stage is probably the healthiest but make sure to wash them carefully before consuming them. Add raw greens to a salad or simply just snack on them and much away! Greens can also be cooked and steaming is one of the best ways because it helps to maintain all of the nutritional content. Stir-fries are a healthy way to toss together your greens as well as your meats or fish.
