Ten Healthiest Foods

The Mayo clinic's dietitian, Mark Glen, offers his top ten picks for healthiest foods. I was happy to see that eight out of these ten are staples in our house. Also worthy of note, these food items work well with Lenten fasting. Happy Ash Wednesday!
  1. apples
  2. almonds
  3. blueberries
  4. broccoli
  5. red beans
  6. salmon
  7. spinach
  8. sweet potatoes
  9. vegetable juice
  10. wheat germ

It is hilarious, but true--eight out of ten of these are staples in our house!

I rarely cook salmon or drink vegetable juice, but the other items are favorites.

Maybe, I'll teach myself to like salmon and vegetables just to be a perfectionist. : )

Thanks for the list!
