Here are a few specific foods and their health values and cautions:
- Fish- Fish are known to have Omega 3 Fatty acids and other helpful vitamins and minerals. Fish may lower your risk of strokes and heart attacks as well as contribute to brain health. Cautions involve the number of servings eaten in one week. Because of potential mercury content, I usually eat about 2 or, at the most, 3 servings of fish a week.
- Dark, leafy greens- Included in this category are kale, spinach, and lettuce such as Romaine, for example. They are rich in vitamins A, C, and K. Major cautions include the need to purchase or raise clean, healthy greens without infectious bacteria and awareness of pesticides used on inorganic greens.
