Be honest, when was the last time you ate a bowl of nuts? Nuts are packed with unsaturated fats. They also have the all-important omega-3 fatty acids. These are helpful in making sure your LDL cholesterol, also referred to as bad cholesterol, stays low.

Leafy Greens
I know this isn’t what you want to hear, but you’re going to want to start eating more leafy greens. It’s a rough task, considering so many of us have avoided things like spinach since we were children. It’s almost hardwired into our brain to stay away from leafy greens. Well, you’re going to have to unlearn that stuff.

Olive Oil
Olive oil is predominantly used in Mediterranean countries such as Greece, Italy and Spain. It’s a key part of what is known to us as the “Mediterranean diet”. Olive oil is packed with monounsaturated fatty acids, which are good for your heart.

Purple Sweet Potatoes
The purple sweet potato is packed with nutrients. The potato gets its color from a pigment called anthocyanin. This pigment also acts as a powerful antioxidant that can help boost your immune system as well reduce the chances of inflammation.

Blueberries are great for snacking. Instead of eating unhealthy foods, you can have blueberries whenever you feel a bit hungry between your meals. They can also be used in dessert recipes and sweet little treats

Beans, Pulses, and Legumes
Plant-based diets should include beans and legumes. They are packed with protein, while also providing a good number of vitamins and minerals. Trying to get in shape? Beans can also help you lose weight.

Tomatoes are an important part of most diets. If you’re not eating enough tomatoes regularly, you should start adding them to your recipes. Tomatoes are packed with antioxidants, especially lycopene, which is responsible for their color.

Oatmeal is quite a popular food, especially among people who are health conscious. It’s one of the foods you need to eat on a regular basis if you want to live into your 80’s.

  1. Even though some humans eat healthy we're all going to die someday. But the Lord gives us things on us Earth to combat diseases like foods and vegetables and fruits.

  2. Sometimes if I eat a big bowl of oatmeal with fruit (apples, bananas, blueberries, etc.) my blood sugar shoots up or something and I feel really terrible and fall asleep and kind of feel like shit all day. What's up with that?

  3. Not sure you should be promoting snacking! Everytime people snack, they elevate thier insulin levels to conteract the fructose.
    Having low levels of insulin is not a good indicator of health and can still mean high levels of insulin resistance.
    Not sure what you are basing all this info on. One study here or there is not sufficient proof.
    What research are you using and where are the references? Links please.

  4. This is FALSE – just more vegan propaganda. The longest living and healthiest populations are MEAT eaters (red meat, fish, and eggs).

  5. Nuts, beans and tomatoes have a lot of lectins, which can be bad for your gut biome

  6. You might check out the whole list of Drs. on YouTube saying not to eat things with a lot of carbs, including sweet potatoes, legumes, and especially oatmeal. NO grains. They create constant inflammation in the body which is not good. I am not positive they are correct, but, my wife and I have both lost of 60 pounds and I am feeling the best in years in my late 60's. Edit: If you really want to improve your life, Drs. Berry, Berg, Ekberg, Bosworth, Fung, and many many more explaining in great detail keto and intermittent fasting. Low to no carbs (your body can make them from protein), more fat, protein, mostly cruciferous vegetables, NO sugar. It can cure most diabetics (forgot details, but these doctors will set you straight).

  7. Tomatoes, beans, and peanuts to name a few, contain Lectin. Lectin causes small micro-tears on your gut walls causing you to have what's known as "leaky gut".

  8. Diet is only one factor, and cannot be isolated to produce a cause of either health or long life. But go ahead and believe – it's your privilege.

  9. I love this every am:
    1/2 cup oats (I use rolled organic bobs mill)
    Add a vanilla yogurt( I do vegan) -1/2 cup
    1/4 cup plant milk
    Add a bit of chia seeds (optional)
    Let sit in fridge for an hour
    Add cut up orange/fruit of choice (I love blueberries/ mangos/kiwi and oranges)
    Add handful Walnuts or pecans
    Add some ground flax seed
    Add organic hemp seeds

    Add more yogurt and milk to soften it if needed!

    I’m addicted/ I eat 5 days of the week
