What are the Top 20 healthiest foods?

Most weight loss and healthy eating programmes focus on what you CAN’T or SHOULDN’T   eat. All very negative.But the quest to be healthy is one of the most positive we could possibly embark on, so shouldn’t the advice be expressed in positive rather than negative terms?

I like the idea of being told, “Try to eat all these things” instead of “YOU MUST NOT EAT…”  so I undertook some research to find out the 20 healthiest foods we can eat. Here they are:

  1. Natural yoghurt
  2. Broccoli
  3. Pineapple
  4. Blueberries
  5. Globe artichokes
  6. Oily fish
  7. Oats
  8. Nuts
  9. Oranges
  10. Sweet potatoes
  11. Cabbage
  12. Carrots
  13. Onions
  14. Tea
  15. Sunflower seeds
  16. Quinoa
  17. Olive oil
  18. Eggs
  19. Tomatoes
  20. Flax  seeds

All of these should be a regular part of your diet. So how many do you eat at the moment? I will be dealing with each of these foods in detail on this blog, discussing what the health benefits are and providing suggestions for how you can enjoy including them in your diet.

The first post in this series is on Natural Yoghurt and you can read all about it here:
