Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

10 Best Foods – Eating for Your Health (Low Glycemic Foods)

The last post talked about the worst foods but I thought we should look at the best foods.

The Mayo Clinic came up with their own healthy list.

Let’s take a look:

Almonds, apples, blueberries, broccoli, red beans, salmon, spinach, sweet potatoes, vegetable juice, and wheat germ.

At first glance — all are low glycemic which means they don’t spike blood sugar and offer your blood stream a sustained feeling of fullness rather than a surge to eat more and more. Sugar and white flour are the worst culprits.

All are a good source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, fiber, and everything else we’ve been hearing about for years.

All our readily available — no specialty stores needed.

My one comment would be to buy the vegetable juice with low sodium or salt free because that juice has a lot of sodium.

Hopefully spinach won’t be recalled any time soon again. Even if you buy your spinach in a bag and it’s been washed, I recommend washing it again.

For years eating an apple a day as been the adage. Someone knew what they were talking about. I think the secret is the pectin.

Fortunately, I like everything on that list.

Salmon is disappearing; stock up with canned wild salmon now.
