This is a great site that I came across today. http://whfoods.org/foodstoc.php (It is not my site and I am not affiliated with it in any way!) I just wanted to share it with you all as it is a list of lots of healthy foods. They are each clickable links and then you can find out more about the foods and the health benefits of each particular food. About half of the list are foods that I regularly eat, there are some of my favourites that are not on the list, but that is because they are not as common as these foods. I do not eat meat, seafood or dairy products, so that cut out a big chunk of the list for me, but there are lots of delicious fruits and vegetables that I do regularly eat on there though! Are your favourite foods on this list? Or are they possibly not included because they are not considered healthy?

Thanks for sharing this informative site. I dont eat meat or seafoods (with the exception of tuna which i force myself to eat every few weeks believeing it to be 'good' for me). There are a few vegetables i dont like (avocado/celery...)but I eat all the fruits except grapefruit (on medical advice). I was pleased to see maple syrup on the list... next time i'm shopping, that will be on my list to add to my porridge in the mornings

I am not a fan of celery either, but I do eat it if it is mixed with other things. I do however love avocado. It is one of the most versatile and delicious fruits there are in my opinion. We always have them here. I would love to grow some trees with different varieties if I had some more room. I do not eat maple syrup, but I believe it is quite good if you can get a natural one. I have a friend with bees, so I get lots of delicious natural honey for free! YUM!!!

I have learned to tolerate small bits of celery in stews or salads but the only time I ever ate avocado it just tasted of nothing and felt slimy. for some reason,I really dont like the taste of honey. I guess i'm more of a Paddington than a Pooh.

Perhaps you did not get a good avocado the first time round. Bad ones can taste a lot different than good ones. There are also lots of different varieties that are all slightly different in flavour. I do not know too many people that do not like honey!

I don't know if I would class myself as a fanatic, but it is definitely an area that concerns me and I am very worried about the state of the world as most people are not very health conscious at all.

Thanks for sharing this I'm always interested in reading about food that's healthy and nutritious for me. Also the world's healthiest foods are normally some of the best tasting foods as well.

You are right there. I used to think the opposite, but now if I ate something very unhealthy, it would not taste very good to me at all. Healthy foods taste alive and you can almost feel the energy in them!

I would have to say you are totally right on that one also whenever I eat something greasy or not all that good for me I can literally feel my metabolism come to a halt and I just kind of feel gummed up and slowed down. It feels good to eat really healthy food after not eating for a while because you can feel the nutrients completely recharge your energy.

I also eat about half of what is on the list. Unfortunately I eat junk food, too. I used to not until I hooked up with my fiance and he has been a major influence on what i eat since he is he opposite. No longer a true vegetarian, lol. Good article though.

Yes, others do influence our eating patterns. It was my wife who first raised my awareness about eating habits, addictions to chemicals in foods and showed me how to eat better. Maybe if you choose to eat healthier and are positive about it, he may see the benefits and follow you.

Let me tell you , I have tried so hard. He will not leave his eating habits behind but I do need to change mine. I just cannot take feeling tired all the time. Its not me anymore - at least i do not feel like me anymore, and I can only be the one changes for me.

These things can take time. Sometimes years to give up our lifelong habits. I hope you can find what works best for you both and regain some energy.

I do like a lot of the foods on the list and have them regularly but there are a lot of favourites that sadly are not listed, like chocolate and chips! (LOL) Seriously if we all kept that list handy and base our choices on that I think we would do a lot of good for our health! It is so easy to get into bad habits and remain stuck in them. Bad food choices are just habits because there are delicious foods that are actually good for us (I think...)

There are lots of delicious foods that are good for us and it is amazing how the taste buds change once you give up the unhealthy foods. You start to crave the healthier foods more as your body subconsciously knows what is good for it. It is really easy to get stuck in the routine of eating unhealthy processed foods as they have addictive chemicals in them. Most people unfortunately are not aware just how addictive these are. Chips were always one of my favourites, but I feel sick if I have them now. Chocolate though can be healthy as long as it is organic dark chocolate and eaten in moderation. I still eat chocolate sometimes and have a friend who makes it as her business. We are always getting samples of her new flavours and we sold it for her as well last winter. I think we ate nearly as much as we sold...LOL

i eat most of the food that are listed on the list... so i suppose that i am a pretty healthy person then... :-) i try to be healthy and live a healthy life because i don't want to get sick... getting sick costs a lot of money and i don't like going to the doctor as well... take care and have a nice day...

You are right. Getting sick does cost a lot of money. Not just in doctors bills, but also in time lost while being sick. Some people complain about the cost of healthy foods, but in comparison to the cost of being sick, it is cheap. Growing your own fresh produce makes it even cheaper. I am glad to see that you eat most of the foods on the list!

oh really..it's good to know you have learned this. We are really looking healthy foods., to nourished our body and senses your site is one of great help..but you know i'm a filipina and would like to eat more vegetables than meat. I am looking for delicious fruits to keep us healthy..i do believed that health is wealth but sad to say we are affected by el nino today..no bearing fruits of the trees...and people in our country are suffering from heat...and as fighting against the health we are drinking a lot of juices..

Juices are very good for you, especially if they are freshly made and not processed juices. Growing your own vegetables is the way to good health and it is also the way to help solve the planets biggest issues as well.

Thanks for sharing,i find most foods that i eat reagularly are in this list,but i want to know the evidence of this distinguishing!If it is scientic,if that,i will schdule my daily meal on this!

Most of these foods are well known to be beneficial to health. We do not need to get too scientific about these things. We just need to work out what foods work best for ourselves. This list gives a general idea, but everyone is different and needs to do their own research with their own bodies to see what foods work the best!

Many f my favourite foods are on the list Bill. But not the pizza base that they often sit on! Nor the doughnuts, although they are there in their "raw" state mostly! LOL. We all ought to eat much more fresh and "natural" foods. But unfortunately we don't!
@RawBill1 (8542)

No, the pizza bases are not there unfortunately! Yeah, unfortunately for the health of us all, it is far too easy to eat the junk foods that give us no nutritional value. It is still easy enough to grow our own organic food at home, but it is far easier to buy the stuff packed with chemicals and heavily processed these days.

I know which foods I like that are considered healthy and those which are not. Apple for one, banana, well the list is kinda long. I think more than half of the list in the website you gave are foods that I eat a lot. I guess I am generally healthy, but not really, because I JUST LOVE JUNK FOOD so much. Haha. And that includes pizza, chips, more chips, and coke.

Thanks for sharing. I guess if you have half of the list regularly, then you are doing OK. You just need to give up the junk food now and you will be feeling great!
