Every month, the Huffington Post puts out a blog post regarding the healthiest seasonal foods. They have a panel of health experts and nutritionists that sing the praises of various foods. However, this month they decided to go outside the season and pick out the the 50 healthiest foods of all time. Kenneth Rozenberg wants to know how many you eat on the list on a regular basis!
Here are the top ten foods:
5. Olive Oil
3. Dark Chocolate
1. Water (yes, we’re aware that isn’t a food.)
Does this mean that since two of the top three foods on this list are chocolate and almonds that you can go around eating Hershey’s candy bars with almonds and be a healthy camper? Ken Rozenberg says absolutely not. Everything in moderation! While small doses of dark chocolate are full of antioxidants and good oils and minerals, large amounts of chocolate has fats, and a lot of sugar which turns to fat once processed in your body. Also, while olive oil is a heart healthy oil and can do great things for your body, you don’t want to eat pasta dripping with olive oil or the good effects are vastly outweighed by the bad.
