The Healthiest Foods on the Planet 


Healthy Food #1: Lemons
Why They’re Healthy:
— Just one lemon has more than 100 percent of your daily intake of vitamin C, which may help increase “good” HDL cholesterol levels and strengthen bones.
— Citrus flavonoids found in lemons may help inhibit the growth of cancer cells and act as an anti-inflammatory.

Healthy Food #2: Broccoli

Why It’s Healthy:
— One medium stalk of broccoli contains more than 100 percent of your daily vitamin K requirement and almost 200 percent of your recommended daily dose of vitamin C — two essential bone-building nutrients.
— The same serving also helps stave off numerous cancers.

Healthy Food #3: Dark Chocolate

Why It’s Healthy:
— Just one-fourth of an ounce daily can reduce blood pressure in otherwise healthy individuals.
— Cocoa powder is rich in flavonoids, antioxidants shown to reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase “good” HDL levels.

Healthy Food #4: Potatoes

Why They’re Healthy:
— One red potato contains 66 micrograms of cell-building folate — about the same amount found in one cup of spinach or broccoli.
— One sweet potato has almost eight times the amount of cancer-fighting and immune-boosting vitamin A you need daily.

Healthy Food #5: Salmon

Why It’s Healthy:
— A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to a reduced risk of depression, heart disease, and cancer.
— A 3-ounce serving contains almost 50 percent of your daily dose of niacin, which may protect against Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss.

Healthy Food #6: Walnuts

Why They’re Healthy:
— Contain the most omega-3 fatty acids, which may help reduce cholesterol, of all nuts.
— Omega-3s have been shown to improve mood and fight cancer; they may protect against sun damage, too (but don’t skip the SPF!).

Healthy Food #7: Avocados

Why They’re Healthy:
— Rich in healthy, satisfying fats proven in one study to lower cholesterol by about 22 percent.
— One has more than half the fiber and 40 percent of the folate you need daily, which may reduce your risk of heart disease.

Healthy Food #8: Garlic

Why It’s Healthy:
— Garlic is a powerful disease fighter that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, including E. coli.
— Allicin, a compound found in garlic, works as a potent anti-inflammatory and has been shown to help lower cholesterol and blood-pressure levels.

Healthy Food #9: Spinach

Why It’s Healthy:
— Spinach contains lutein and zeaxanthin, two immune-boosting antioxidants important for eye health.
— Recent research found that among cancer-fighting fruits and veggies, spinach is one of the most effective.

Healthy Food #10: Beans

Why They’re Healthy:
— Eating a serving of legumes (beans, peas, and lentils) four times a week can lower your risk of heart disease by 22 percent.
— That same habit may also reduce your risk of breast cancer.

  2. Bonjour mon ami ou mon amie

    Je n’ai aucune raison de courir

    La vie me donne le temps

    Soit dans le sens du vent ou à contre courant

    Mais je vais toujours devant moi

    Même si parfois je piétine ou je vais à reculons

    Mais je réussirais et traverserais ce pont de L’avenir

    Pour finalement arriver chez toi

    Je te souhaite une agréable journée

    Gros bisous d’amitié

    Bernard
