  1. Beans: All legumes are packed with healthy plant-based protein and minerals. Beans and legumes are a major component of every single longest-lived society on this planet. 
  2. Berries: Have more nutrients per weight than any other fruit. Blackberries have the most antioxidants of all berries. All berries aid in cancer and chronic disease prevention. 
  3. Cruciferous Vegetables: Prevents DNA damage, mitigate metastatic cancer growth, assists in liver detox, promotes brain health…..what else do you need? 
  4. Whole grains: People who eat more whole grains live longer, reduce their risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.  
  5. Nuts & Seeds: Again, people who incorporate nuts and seeds (raw is best), boost their metabolism, and reduce their risk of death from heart disease and cancer. Walnuts and ground flax seeds are packed with omega 3 fatty acids as well.
