Continuing my search for safe natural, raw, healthy food to encourage my getting well I have found the term super food used by Naturopathic and holistic nutritionist and natural medicine physicians and researchers. It means Foods that have an incredible array of health benefits that go well beyond just their nutrient value. These foods are made in nature and not processed by man. They are typically loaded with a combination of critical fatty acids, anti-oxidant phytonutrients and essential amino acids. They are low in sugar and high in fiber content, vitamins and minerals.
So far the super foods I have covered are the:
- Berry (blueberry, raspberry, etc.)
- Nut (Walnut, Almond, etc.)
- Salmon – wild caught
- and now the Avocado.
Classification of an Avocado
Now I ask the question what exactly is an Avocado? Is it a -- Fruit – Nut – Vegetable – Seed or a Fat?
- And further what is a Coconut or an Olive?
They are cultivated in tropical climates throughout the world. All are eaten by millions of people all over the world, where it may grow in their back yards. All are the name the tree and all are considered among the super food classification. Plus all of them contain over 75% natural saturated and monounsaturated fat.
