      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

"Miracle" Foods?

14 posts in this topic

GP.com recently posted this article about "miracle" foods that are good for your health, etc.(some of them may surprise you): http://www.grandparents.com/health-and-wellbeing/diet-and-nutrition/super-foods

Are any of them among your favorites? Or do you have some other food item that you "swear by," as far as being healthy/making you feel good is concerned?

For whatever reason, the link brings me to the page but sees only 1 image .. and won't allow me scroll because that's all it sees .. the image is of a plate with food around it .. what are the 5 foods?

Pickles, mussels, watercress, dark chocolate and pumpkin seeds. 

Really? A diet high in fresh fruits & vegetables along with quality protein that is lower in saturated fats and simple carbs is generally the way to go.

Thank you- I think they mean to eat those things in conjunction with a healthy diet, like what you describe, and that they have "special" properties that offer more of a boost- Lots of people believe it to be true of fermented foods -- including wine ..

I used to swear by broccoli rabe .. but it's changed so much over the past 10 years, it's become bitter and the stems woody ..

It didn't make the list, but chocolate, specifically Sees Candy is my super food go to.  It really needs to be added to the food pyramid.

See's peanut brittle is my favorite candy ever.....my MGM worked at Bank of America World Headquarters in San Francisco for many years when See's was a local hidden treasure....she'd buy all her Easter candy there every year.

Celery

ETA: Mom said celery was a good food: vitamins, minerals, crunchy best snack, good sodium (vs bad), fiber for regularity, lowers some bad levels (?) in your system, easy to cook or eat raw.

Okaayy... I'm wondering what the benefit is in these, ladies. Or is it just the benefit of pure enjoyment? :)
