Top 5 Super Foods

The World's Healthiest Foods should contain some of the following nutrients that are necessary and good for you:
- fresh vegetables and fruits (organically grown whenever possible), which contain an array of vitamins, minerals and other health-promoting phytonutrients.
-whole grains and legumes, which provide healthy fibers.
- proteins
- fats

The following foods are very healthy foods that will help you feel, think, and live better.

Blueberries

Blueberries are full of nutritional values, and very low in calories. They are very high in vitamin content, fiber and antioxidants. In recent studies blueberries were found to be at the top of the list of fruits in their ability to destroy free radicals and therefore various types of cancer. Blueberries have almost 40% more antioxidants than red wine.
While the best way to enjoy blueberries is raw, they're great used in all kinds of recipes. Besides fresh, they can be found frozen and dried, so you can enjoy them year round.

Walnuts

Walnuts are one of the best plant sources of protein. They are rich in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium and antioxidants such as Vitamin E. Nuts in general are also high in plant sterols and omega 3 fatty acids. Walnuts, in particular, have significantly higher amounts of omega 3 fatty acids as compared to other nuts.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are so delicious that they will become the potato of your choice. There's nothing wrong with the russet potatoes. They are not unhealthy, but when compared to the nutrient-rich sweet potato, the winner is clear!

The sweet potato is packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber. Sweet potato/Yam has manganese, Vitamins A & C, potassium, and high-fibers. That is why is considered one of the five "Super Foods." Its sweet flavor has been shown to satisfy the palette, while at the same time curbing ones appetite longer by stabilizing blood sugar levels. Sweet Potatoes are also rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties.

Sweet potatoes can be used in just about every recipe that calls for regular potatoes.

Wild Pacific Northwest Salmon

The benefits of eating salmon have been well written, and it’s included in almost every "foods you need to eat" list. But, while eating more salmon is a great idea, eating more wild salmon is an even better one. The majority of salmon sold at the grocery store is farmed. This farmed salmon doesn't have the opportunity to eat a natural diet and is instead given a "feed" which often contains grains and other foods not usually eaten by salmon in the wild. There is also a concern about contaminants and toxins in the farmed salmon. So far that debate has yet to be settled conclusively, but no one will argue with the great taste, and heath benefits, of the wild salmon.

Wild salmon is low in calories and very high in protein. But, the main reason for being on so many "must eat" lists is that it contains large amounts of the essential omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are thought to be very beneficial in many areas including; cardiovascular function, cancer prevention, fighting high blood pressure, and improved brain function.

Dark Greens

Dark green vegetables such as kale, chard, collard greens, bok choy, broccoli, asparagus, green beans etc are packed with vitamins A and C, iron, calcium and phytonutrients. They are very filling, high in fiber and low in calories, making them perfect foods to keep your heart healthy and your waistline slim. The new diet recommendation made by the American Heart Association recommends eating at least 4 servings of vegetables a day from a variety source.

BMI Calculator

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It measures the ratio of one's body weight to their height. It also tries to give an idea of the amount of body fat a person has. Two people can have the same BMI but different levels of body fat(because Muscle weighs more than fat). A high percentage of body fat increases the chances of heart disease, Type II diabetes, and cancers. *******************************************
