Revealed: The World's Healthiest Foods

Thanks to a lead from my favorite librarian Marylaine Block in her NeatNew and ExLibris newsletter (see her web page to subscribe), a site that lists and promotes both the health and enjoyment value of food, The World's Healthiest Foods. They have a list of nutrious foods and why you might want to eat more of them.

After you check out the apple tart recipe currently on their home page --it has a no-bake date/walnut crust--visit the link above to find out more about the value of the foods you already eat or might eat more of if only you knew how good for you they are.

Here's an excerpt from their site describing who they are:
Our Mission
The Foundation's mission is to offer the latest scientific information about the benefits of the World's Healthiest Foods and the specific nutrients they provide. Equally important, we offer practical, simple and affordable ways to enjoy them that fit your individual lifestyle.

Our Beliefs
The Foundation believes that true good health is more than just the absence of disease; it is a state where you enjoy all the energy, vitality and benefits life has to offer. One of the keys to achieving good health is to use the power of healthy foods to positively affect how you feel, how much energy you have, and the length and quality of your life. There is clear and definitive scientific evidence that proper nutrition plays an important and significant role in reducing the risk of degenerative diseases, and in providing long-term health and longevity.

We also believe that food not only has the power to provide good health, it also has the power to provide the pure joy of eating, and the joy of sharing with others. We recognize that each individual is unique, so we don't try to fit everyone into the same "food formula." Instead, we respect individuality and provide a wide variety of healthy food options. That way each individual can discover the personalized information, recipes, cooking methods and menu plans to meet his or her needs.
Now, who could argue with that?

I looked up flax seed and discovered that it has anti-inflamatory properties I didn't even know about. Check out the studies pointing to the possible value of cinnamon in blood sugar control for type 2 diabetes.

Aside from health value, of course, food should be a pleasure to eat. This site covers both bases.

Check out The World's Healthiest Foods and their list of nutrious foods today.
