What is the healthiest food?

Posted on 08/29/2010 7:00:05 AM PDT by big black dog

If you factor in taste, I'd have to say it's cantaloupe.

Full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and low in calories.

Just had a big hunk of it for breakfast.

Nachos. Preferably with beer, the second healthiest food.

Technically speaking, there is no perfect food. No single food has all the nutrients needed for optimum health.

I really do love a good Pecos Cantaloupe, but not much protein and fat in there, so if that’s all I ate my blood sugar would hate me.

Actually it's been said that Irish Coffee is the the most nutritionally complete as it has all four food groups:

Caffeine

The Pecos cantaloupes are the best. They are delicious cubed and mixed with blackberries and some low fat cottage cheese for protein. A few pecans sprinkled on top make it even better.

Food by itself cannot be “healthy”.
The word you want is “healthful”, as in, giving healthfullness back to the consumer.
Any food that’s still within its shelf life and
has not starting to rot or ‘turn’, I suppose you could call
healthy, though.
As far as the actual import of the question,
I’ve seen chickpeas described as the complete food
nutritionally.
We all KNOW, regardless of the jokes we make about bacon,
and twinkies,etc. that green vegetables are never gonna
hurt ya. So stick with them.
