    I would say

    1) Fish, especially common carps and coalfish. They are rich in unsaturated fatty acids and proteins.

    2) Milk. It contains the basic material for the mineral bone and also a lot vitamins that help support your immune system.

    3) Nuts. They are high in proteins, unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. They verifiably raise concentration and reduce stress. And walnuts can raise your fertility.

    4) Berries and citrus fruits. All of them are high in vitamin C and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes.

    5) Brokkoli. Studies have shown that brokkoli can reduce the chance of getting cancer. And it's high in fibers and vitamins.


    BUT as usual: The dose makes the poison. Eating too much of all these isn't healthy either.
    Fish can contain quicksilver, not everyone's body tolerates milk, nuts can contain too much nickel and have a high potential to sensibilize on, berries and citrus fruits can harm your stomach, brokkoli... well brokkoli is brokkoli.

    Yes, avocado! So true. And they taste amazing when you cut them in half, remove the core and roast them for 2 mins on each side. A little salt and pepper - and maybe if you're kinky you can dip it in goat creme cheese - and you've got a meal that'll stuff you for the day.

    You should also try to roast them, trust me ;) They taste totally different, but so good! But your way of eating it of course is good too!

    My pleasure!

    I also recommend blueberries and probiotic-rich kefir or yogurt for intestinal health.


    Twelve Surprising Reasons to Eat More Blueberries

    1. Catechins found in blueberries activate fat-burning genes in abdominal fat cells to assist with weight loss, and belly fat loss in particular. According to research at Tufts University, regularly ingesting catechins increases abdominal fat loss by 77 percent and double total weight loss.

    2. They contain a group of natural phytonutrients (plant nutrient) called proanthocyanidins which have a unique ability to protect both the watery and fatty parts of the brain against damage from some environmental toxins.

    3. Blueberries are one of the richest sources of proanthocyanidins. These phytonutrients decrease free radicals levels that are linked to aging (yes wrinkling!) and disease.

    4. In animal studies, those given an extract of blueberries had less motor skill decline and performed better on memory tests than animals not given the blueberries. Researchers conclude that compounds in blueberries may reverse some age-related memory loss and motor skill decline.

    5. Blueberries are packed with vitamins C, E, riboflavin, niacin, and folate.

    6. They are a rich source of the phytonutrients ellagic acid. Ellagic acid has proven anticancer and genetic-material-protection capabilities. It also encourages a healthy rate of apoptosis—how the body seeks out and destroys harmful or damaged cells, like cancer cells.

    7. Because they contain plentiful amounts of the phytonutrient quercetin, they may reduce the likelihood and severity of allergies.

    8. Blueberries contain minerals like iron, magnesium, manganese, and potassium.

    9. Blueberries contain salicylic acid—the natural version of aspirin. Salicylic acid is known to thin the blood and reduce pain.

    10. Blueberries are excellent anti-inflammatory agents. They increase the amounts of compounds called heat-shock proteins that decrease as people age. When heat shock proteins decrease the result is inflammation and damage, particularly in the brain. Research shows that by eating blueberries regularly, inflammation lessens.

    11. They increase the production of feel-good dopamine. Dopamine is a natural neurotransmitter (brain messenger) that tends to be low in Parkinson’s.

    12. They just taste great. Ok, this is no surprise but it’s a great reason to eat blueberries anyway.

    I hate to be a Mr Knowitall again... but here I go icon_biggrin.gif

    To #9) Salicylic acid is not the same as aspirin and doesn't have the same effects. Aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid. Salicylic acid though is antibacterial. It supports your immune system hence!

    To #11) Dopamine is low in Parkinson's, but high in schizophrenia. I just wanted to point out there are two sides to dopamine. Increasing your endogenous production certainly is no harm.

    Just throwing that out here, thinking fast, but I'd say lentils and/or beans ? Just the right balance between carbs, healthy fats and proteins (although incomplete, I know!) ?

    Turkey. Leanest animal protein.

    Freekeh ? Instead of rice, and even beating the quinoa down, that cereal has a LOT of fiber, big on proteins, low glycemic index.

    Sweet potatoes.

    Kale/Spinach.

    Almonds.

    We tend to forget them, and they got quite beat up in the last decades, but they're coming back stronger than ever...

    EGGS !

    Says in this online article on wikipedia.com that salicylic acid is the main metabolite of aspirin.

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspirin

    I know that salicylic acid is in acne wash. I use it myself for that purpose.

    Aaaaah now look at that. I never knew it was metabolized to salicylic acid. Thanks, man!

    Remember though not to eat the eggs raw. Raw eggs contain avidin which slows down muscles growth.
