Day 133


Thoughts: The World's Healthiest Foods

I have created a list of the world's healthiest foods. All of these foods are provided naturally from the earth and are also whole foods complete with all their rich natural endowment of nutrients. They have not been highly processed and absolutely do not contain any additives, chemicals or artifical flavours or colourings. These foods have also been selected because they are among the richest sources of many of the essential nutrients needed for optimal health. Keep these foods in mind when creating an entire meal on The Earth Diet.

  1. hi liana, you eat alot of avo's!! its a shame they are so expensive as i would eat them more often if they were cheaper. Queenslands the place to be for cheap avo's. also i love asparagus, but its very hard to find organic asparagus. i was wondering if you could expand on your comment about non-organic milk being more harmful for your body?
    keep up the good work
    regards james

  2. Hey James!!! Yes I do eat a lot of avocado...I love the texture, it's so creamy, soothing and warm (especially good since I am filming this movie in the cold right now in Alabama!). They are also a great healthy fat for us. Yes it is a shame that avos can be pricey, they are $1 each here, for me money doesn't stop me from buying fresh fruits and vegetables no matter how much they are because it's a great investment into me and my health and totally worth it. And I get for others it isn't as much a priority, or the funds just aren't there at the moment. I love going to the farmers markets because the fruit and veg is cheaper AND fresh! Absolutely tomorrow in blog Day 135 I will write more about non-organic milk being harmful on the body. You may be shocked ;) Thanks James :)
