Food to save your life

Posted by Karen Inge | Healthy Eating | No Comments

Can what you eat save your life? Nutritionist and former spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association David Grotto claims it can in his book 101 FOODS THAT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

He presents a guide to foods from acai to yoghurt—the top powerhouse foods that can help battle specific health issues including cancer, heart disease and diabetes from developing in the future while increasing one’s everyday wellness now. From nuts that fight obesity to foods that increase athletic performance and fight asthma, David Grotto discusses the science behind today’s dietary guidelines and shows how anyone can easily incorporate each food into a daily diet.

David reinforces the medical importance of eating a diet high in variety—with carbohydrates, proteins, and fats included—and how these important foods battle disease, build a healthy body, and get the nutritional job done and shows how good nutrition also means good-tasting food. And he has personal experience showing the benefits of the 101 foods—when his cholesterol hit an all-time high, he added oatmeal, almonds, figs, cranberries, and salmon to his diet and lowered his levels considerably, in just one month.

His top foods are primarily fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. They include avocadoes, barley, basil, blueberries, buckwheat, celery, cherries, cinnamon, cloves, fennel, flaxseed, lemon, limes, quinoa, sesame seeds, pistachio, spelt, spinach, tea, turmeric, walnuts, watermelon and wasabi.
