The food that fights, Amazing!

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

I found this interesting article. It was written by Joy Bauer, a registered dietitian and founder of Joy Bauer Nutrition. Here are her top five picks to help fight diabetes, cardiovascular disease, migraine headaches, and arthritis. To your health!

Diabetes

  1. Soybeans (combo of protein, high-quality carbs, and soluble fiber helps stabilize blood sugar levels)
  2. Wild salmon (provides protein, omega-3 fats, and vitamin D)
  3. Swiss chard (great low-glycemic carbohydrate, plus provides magnesium)
  4. Beans (slow-release carbohydrate with soluble fiber and magnesium)
  5. Almonds (great low-carb snack; also provides unsaturated fat, protein, and fiber)

Cardiovascular disease

  1. Wild salmon (thins the blood and lowers triglycerides)
  2. Bananas (rich in magnesium and potassium; helps manage blood pressure)
  3. Brussels sprouts (rich in soluble fiber, which lowers cholesterol)
  4. Oatmeal (rich in soluble fiber, which lowers cholesterol)
  5. Sunflower seeds (3 heart-healthy ingredients: soluble fiber, plant sterols, and folic acid)

Migraines

  1. Omega 3 fortified eggs (provides omega-3 fats)
  2. Beans (provides magnesium)
  3. Skim milk (provides riboflavin)
  4. Ground flaxseeds (provides omega-3 fats and soluble fiber)
  5. Spinach (provides magnesium)

Arthritis

  1. Red bell pepper (rich in vitamin C and beta cryptoxanthin)
  2. Carrots (provides ample beta carotene)
  3. Berries (contains potent antioxidants called anthocyanins)
  4. Oranges (provides vitamin C and beta cryptoxanthin)
  5. Pumpkin (provides beta cryptoxanthin and beta carotene)
What do you think? Personally, I love it. It is simple and practical. I will definitely try her suggestion.

Finally, a list of recommended foods that actually sound like things I would eat! I hate when they give you lists of crap you wouldn't give your neighbor's dog or things you can't find at your local grocer.
