I have been researching health foods for the past four years, with a bias towards Diabetes and Strokes; but what I am discovering is that eating healthy will reduce the risk of most diseases.
It would appear that there is no set menu of foods for one particular disease as oppose to another.
In the course of my research the same foods keep cropping up for reducing risks on several different ailments.
Here is a fairly comprehensive list,- though not complete -of foods for fostering good health; the list is wide and varied so creating a menu of exciting dishes should not be a problem.
Fish-salmon. Mackerel, tuna, sardines, halibut & trout.
Flax seeds, chia seeds
Leafy green vegetables.- -spinach, kale, turnip greens, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage.
Beans- green beans, black beans, kidney beans. Young soy beans, chickpeas, navy beans, lentils.
Berries, blue berries, black berries, straw berries, raspberries, plums, oranges & cherries
Fruits, oranges, plums, golden apples, avocados, red grapes, guinep, pomegranates, pomme surette, tamarind, star apple, carombola/ five finger, mango, papaya, kiwi and coconut,
Whole grains. Brown rice, oats, brown pasta
whole wheat or whole grain breads, quinoa, barley.
Reduce the intake of, or quit sugar
Eat six smaller, rather than 3 large meals a day.
Drink eight-8 ounce glasses of water per day-2 liters or half gallon
Low or no consumption of alcohol
Avoid battered or fried foods.
I am an advocate of a plant based diet with the addition of fatty fish; so I will not mention any kind of meats; but if you feel compelled to consume some meats, please research the safest meats and how to consume them.
Avoid stress as much as possible; do you own one of my stress relievers?
