Top 10 Superfoods

*Note: This is an Oldie, but Goodie that I feel needs to be reposted- imported from our old blog location- enjoy!

I am very excited to report to you that last night, I spoke to renowned fitness expert for over 20 years,Debbie Siebers in an online chat room on www.milliondollarbody.com. Debbie talked about several new developments in health food studdies & fitness, including the Top 10 + Super Foods.

About Eggs:Previously, we were told by health/ fitness experts to eat egg whites, or egg beaters because they were healthier, lower in fat, and high in protein. Now, the recommendation is to have whole eggs instead! Why? Because the red (really yellow part of the egg contains nutrients that benefit the entire body from eyes, to skin, hair, nails, and brain. Plus, it tastes so much better than those airy egg whites! (In my opinion at least) Check out this interesting article on the Incredible, Edible Egg Yolk.

Debbie suggests reading the book "150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" by Jonny Bowden, which, well, the name speaks for itself!

A Word on Fish: Debbie recommends Salmon as the top fish to eat because of its omega 3 fatty acid content, but.....I highly dislike Salmon, so here are the alternatives she suggested:
cod, white fish, snapper, orange rouffy, halibut, pollak, rock fish, & ocean perch.

Aloe Vera Juice: We all know aloe for easing sun burn, but most of us don't know that 100% pure aloe vera juice, about 2 ounces daily is said to aid a number of digestive problems, in cell regeneration, with age spots and more!

AND NOW.............FOR THE TOP 10 SUPER FOODS............(drum roll here)...........

1- Macadamia Nut oil
2- Avocado
3- Alaskan Salmon
4- Red, yellow, orange peppers
5- Kale
6- Lean organic red meat
