This delicious fruit native to South America and Mexico is loaded with the healthy fats essential for life. These healthy fats are the ones many Westerners’ bodies are seriously deprived of due to the no-fat, low-fat diet craze. Eating fresh, benefit-loaded avocados gives the body a healthy dose of these monounsaturated fats.
4. Raw Milk
While at first you may think that milk is a beverage it’s actually considered a food. Raw milk, especially kefir, provides the body with a rich source of vitamins A, D, C and B. It’s also loaded with calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, essential fatty acids (medium-chain triglycerides, or MCT oil) and trace minerals.
Wheatgrass is a must have in your daily diet. This is a young grass of the common wheat plant, triticum aestivum. It is loaded with the following nutrients:
- Amino Acids
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
But what adds to wheatgrass’s value is the high amount of chlorophyll it contains. Chlorophyll is a much-needed nutrient that the Westerner’s body often goes without.
