    The only 2 on the list that we don’t have on hand here right now, and don’t regularly consume, are papaya and kiwi.

    I always say here that we have a naturally healthy diet, based purely on our preferences, not on lists. Or perhaps just dumb luck. Although lists can be helpful, if only for confirmation, and for those who need the guidance. And thank you for this one.

    BTW, I LOVE raw broccoli, have some in the fridge right now, and raw cauliflower & carrots, and there are many other veggies & fruits I prefer raw versus prepared. Those are my snack foods, not candy or salty junk chips, along with peanuts & walnuts from the shell. Walnuts are one of the best sources of Omega 3, despite the common misconception it’s found in fish only. Bolstered by the term “fish oil pills”.

    Very good!

    Stay healthy and it will help save you!

    Good fats like Omega oils found in olive oil, nuts and fish are also vital..

    And having mentioned Omega 3, here are foods which are high in it. I eat them all (love salmon, sardines, herring, anchovies & oysters, and always keep walnuts here), except for #3 which isn’t a food as they note, and I skip caviar, unless at someone’s buffet, and also the seeds. I’m not a bird.

    With the exceptions of papaya and kiwi, I eat those foods nearly everyday.

    I typically drink kefir instead of eating yogurt. It has a higher broader spectrum of probiotics. Most of them have twelve whereas regular yogurt has only two to three.

    Yes, and I’ve read that consuming Omega-3 oil that’s contained naturally in foods you eat is more beneficial than swallowing it in tablets.

    I was late in using olive oil, my early 50s. My family used things like solid white Crisco from a can, and Mazola and other vegetable oils. It was my late half-Italian partner who introduced me to olive oil in his cooking. And now my current, 100%-Italian/Sicilian guy uses nothing but. Looking into it, I learned it’s very healthy, so that’s all we use. Unless a recipe specifically requires something else, most often in bakery items.

    I already mentioned I eat nuts & fish, I can’t remember a time from my earliest childhood when I didn’t. Much the same as I eat today, except that I’ve added lots of shellfish, some of which as a little kid I found “yucky”, based more on their appearance than taste.

    And never big on anything fried, nor much red meat, disliking hamburgers and other fast foods (honest to gawd I didn’t have my first French fries until college), but always liking poultry. So really my earliest eating habits were fairly healthy and became my habits for life to this day, although I always remain willing to try new things that don't seem too outré. Like olive oil.
