#1 Leafy greens

Leafy greens are rich in vitamins and nutrients, representing the staple of any diet. It might interest you to know that they also contain a lot of proteins, being more than suited for the health of the brain. In fact, by eating a lot of leafy greens, you won’t have to ask yourself how to improve memory. It is also important to know that leafy greens are alkaline, which means that they can protect the body against cancer and other similar conditions. Among the most recommended choices, there are spinach, kale, Swiss chard, broccoli, collard greens and arugula.

Red-colored fruits, such as different types of berries and pomegranates, present unbelievable anti-aging properties. Rich in antioxidants, they protect against the damage done by free radicals, ensuring the health of vital organs, such as the heart or the brain.

#4 Orange-colored veggies

Root veggies are well-known for their healthy properties, but the ones that are orange colored seem to stand at the top of the list. This is because of orange-colored root veggies, such as squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes, are rich in beta-carotene, which is vitamin A in disguise. Consumed on a regular basis, they can protect against different types of cancer and, at the same time, they support the health of the heart. They are rich in fiber, and they represent a good source of complex carbs, allowing the metabolism to function within normal levels.

#5 Nuts and seeds

Both nuts and seeds present genuine anti-inflammatory properties, being often presented as the best brain foods. They represent an ideal source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for the proper functioning of vital organs, including the brain and the heart. Among the most recommended choices, there are walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, flax and chia seeds. Other nuts, such as almonds and cashews, are indicated for consumption, as they are rich in minerals, such as magnesium and iron. Moreover, all nuts and seeds can regulate the metabolism, help you fight chronic tiredness

Many people consume avocados at breakfast, as it provides them with energy for several hours. The fats included in avocados are easier to digest than those coming from animals, having healthy and beneficial properties at the same time.

#7 Coconuts

Coconuts are delicious to the taste, and they can be easily integrated into the diet, having a wide range of beneficial properties about a person’s health. They represent a good source of healthy fats, not to mention fibers and proteins, stimulating the proper functioning of the immune system and the brain at the same time. Coconut stimulates the production of healthy cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease and it also has anti-inflammatory properties. Consumed on a regular basis, it can stabilize insulin levels, being recommended including to those who have diabetes.

The saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” is not just a saying but an actual thing. Apples are a fountain of health, ensuring the necessary protection for both the heart and the brain.

Hi Philip and Sophie,

This sure came at the appropriate time for me. I’m “tracking” my intake of foods lately. I need to loose some of my “winter weight” and am eating only whole foods.

I like to have a few colors at a meal. Roots like beets coupled with a yellow squash and so on. It is good fuel for my body as well as looking appetizing.

Thanks for this!

Hi Philip,

Cacao is making a big push to the top of this list. Heard great things about it.

We enjoyed fresh cacao in a remote Costa Rican jungle last year. I picked it off of a tree in the wilds, sampled and my energy levels jumped for hours. I hope it was not a strain of cocaine LOL. Seriously though, all food stuffs above are pure gold. I eat each on the regular. Maybe I can be as old as Yoda.

Thanks for sharing 🙂

This is an interesting and informative post. Indeed the need of the hour article! Actually, I am in search of such a post. Due to heavy Summers in India now and already too much of pollution spreading all over the major cities including our Hyderabad city, the is a big question mark for the health and possible longevity of life. Thanks to Sophie for bringing us an informative article and Mr.Philips for allowing to publish the same. Have a great day!
