For the article of the week this week, we review an article that tries to outline the world's most nutritious foods. To no one's surprise we don't agree with this list at all. The top food on this list was almonds and the second most nutritious food was an exotic fruit called cherimoya.
Neither fruits nor almonds contain a complete amino acid profile, which any truly nutritious food would. Almonds are high in the omega 6 fat linoleic acid. Too much omega 6 fats in the diet has been linked to various health conditions including heart disease. So, any diet focusing on health would limit any excess linoleic acid as much as possible.
To counter act this list we made up a list of our top five most nutritious foods.
These five foods are all high quality sources of protein and fat and contain every vitamin and mineral the body needs in its most bioavailable forms. If your diet consists of a variation of these five foods, you will get healthier and stronger by the day.
