Emergency Preparedness – Good Foods Sustain Good Health


   It’s true – good foods can act like medicine, boosting your immune system and reducing cancer, heart disease, and other ailments.  Individual foods are complex packages of chemicals and compounds, but unlike pharmaceutical drugs, don’t deliver a concentrated punch to knock out a specific malady.

   Popular refined and processed foods may have little nutrition of what we expect.  Granola bars have fewer nutrients and nearly as much sugar as Pop Tarts.  1/3rd cup of banana chips has as much fat as a Big Mac.  A slice of multigrain bread has more calories and the same fiber as two chocolate chip cookies.

   What are the dependable good foods with the most medicinal value?  Apples, asparagus, avocado, banana, barley, beans, bell peppers, blueberries, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, celery, chili pepper, cinnamon, clove, collard greens, corn, cranberries, dates, eggplant, fish, garlic, ginger, grapefruit, grapes, kale, melons, mushroom, mustard, nuts, oats, olive oil, onion, orange, parsley, plums, potatoes, pumpkin, raspberries, rice, soybeans, spinach, strawberries, sweet potato, teas, tomato, watermelon, wheat, yogurt, . . . . . I didn’t say you would like them all.  But, I certainly feel better now about my chocolate chip cookies.
