    The 11 Most Nutrient Dense Foods on The Planet

    Post by Eddie on Wed Dec 10 2014, 17:33

    There is only a limited amount of food you can eat in a single day.

    In order to maximize the amount of nutrients you take in, it makes sense to spend your “calorie budget” wisely.

    The best way to do that is to simply eat the foods that carry the greatest amount and variety of nutrients.

    These are the 11 most nutrient dense foods on the planet.

    Salmon, Kale, sea weed, garlic, shell fish, potatoes, liver, sardines, blue berries, egg yolks, dark chocolate. With exception of spuds all low carb. Even nature is on our side.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Not only nutrient dense but tasty and healthy too ! I do enjoy a nice piece of salmon, drizzled with chilli sauce. Did anyone ever find out if potato skins were lowish in carbs yet or not ?

    Mo asked "Did anyone ever find out if potato skins were lowish in carbs yet or not ? "

    Well remembered ...the only thing I can ever remember being told is that most of the goodness from potatoes came from their skin - but that was my dear mum talking sunny


    Love the sound of salmon drizzled in chilli sauce ...........

    Thanks for that. Not something I'd want regularly but maybe the occasional treat.

    Just re-read this, and I do like Kris Gunnars Authority Nutrition Blog, .....definitely wouldn't choose potato though!

    But interesting on the menu plan today is salmon, blue berries, egg yolks (and egg whites) dark chocolate, just a square.

    I didn't buy any kale got broccoli instead - still with a good nutrition value.

    Have you any of these 11 nutrient dense foods on your menu plans?

    All the best Jan

    Potatoes skins can be toxic if you eat too much. The history of potatoes is that they were first toxic even the Indians that cultivated them had to eat them with sand to prevent poisoning. Latter other strains of potato were made that had less alkaloids and could be eaten.
