Almonds Make the Top Ten Healthy Foods List
Medical News Today has recently published an article that reviewed different surveys in North America and Europe to compile a list of the top ten healthiest foods. First on the list were apples; it seems an apple a day probably does keep the doctor away. A few other popular “health food” items on the list included wheat germ, oily fish, leafy green vegetables, blueberries and broccoli.
Two other entries on the list that probably came as no surprise were avocados and almonds. Researchers who compiled the list of top ten healthy foods cited the former for being high in both fiber and healthy fats. Studies have shown regular consumption of avocados seems to have a positive effect on cholesterol as well.
The almond made the top ten for a number of reasons. Like avocados, almonds have calcium, iron and are high in fiber. Delicious almonds also contain unsaturated fatty acids which may help maintain lower cholesterol levels.
