Pomegranates, Persimmons and super foods April 20, 2007

Posted by whatacharacter in body, health, just my blogs.

Actually pomegranates and persimmons are not in this, but I like the juxtiposwordage.

Steven Pratt, MD has a book SuperFoods RX: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life, and an idea about – guess what? Yep, 14 superfoods!

So noted for their healthy robustness and minimal negative impact, they are:

  • Beans
  • Blueberries
  • Broccoli
  • Oats
  • Oranges
  • Pumpkin
  • Salmon
  • Soy
  • Spinach
  • Tea (green or black)
  • Tomatoes
  • Turkey
  • Walnuts
  • Yogurt

Thank god there’s no Lima beans … but my mouth inherently waters for each of these yummy consumables. Thank God for the rich variety of natural foods that are availible to us to enjoy! I feel the chi’i!!

As for other amazing healthy foods, I do think pomegranates should rank up there, along with asparagus, peanut butter, bananas, and dark chocolate. Reading up on these and incorporating them in your diet is a great way to improve your vitality.

Naturally, cutting waaay back on hydrogenated oils, sodium, and sugar poisons are important too.

Anybody have any other favorite healthy foods to recommend???

Green tea is much more beneficial than black. IMHO.

Hi whatacharacter,

Us Organic Garden folks have found that Sprouts are our super food of choice.
Especially Sunflower Sprouts – we call ’em Sunnys.
Eating a bowl of sunny salad keeps us alert and energized for many hours of fun/hard work in the garden.
They are also super easy to grow. Soon, we’ll post about how to grow sunnys on our blog.

For now, you may like to read our Pomegranate post:
We have four pom trees that are blooming at this moment; they grow very well in our Sonoran Desert climate.

There are so many amazing super foods! That list seems pretty good, although were not to sure about soy – a lot of controversy there.
Parsley is a good one. Eggs are mucho importante… the quality of food and its preparation are essential when eating for health, vitality, and wellbeing.

Parsley! That’s a good one with iron.
Spouts: I remember concerns about salmonella with those, and proper washing is important. I’ll have to look up the controversies of soy

Sprouts reminded me of Blue-Green Algae, as a once-touted super food. …wonder what happened …have to look that up too.

Thanks for the comments! Healthy food is so wonderful!
