Even if you don’t have heart problems, those into health and fitness know that prevention is where it’s at. Everywhere today, people are getting back into a focus on consuming healthy foods that energize and nourish your body. You know… foods that do what food is intended to do: sustain you, sustain your life, and fuel, repair and replenish your body.
Toward that, we’re sharing an awesome list of the top foods posted by Health.com. They posted 18, but we can’t recommend one of them because there are too many negative issues with that one food. We left it in the list though, so that you can decide for yourself.

Editor’s Note: We’ve included links to purchase these items on Amazon or Bulletproof to make it easier for you since some grocers in outlying areas don’t stock all of these. We do receive a tiny affiliate revenue, should you purchase through our links, which helps support this site, however you’re welcome to search for these independently.
For our favorite coffee recipe that has lead to improved health—most notably, longer stronger nails—you may enjoy reading this article. And if this sounds just too weird, be sure to watch the bulletproof video and give it a try with an open mind. I thought it was super weird, but loved it immediately, and now drink it daily and with a better functioning brain!
Here’s to your best possible health!
