Eating healthy food is not necessarily about cutting calories and watching carbs. It’s about consuming nutritious foods to get the most value out of your daily calorie intake.

 

Essential macro- and micro-nutrients support every function in your body. They are nutrients which cannot be synthesized by the human body and must be provided by your diet. Carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and water are vital for energy, growth and development, protein metabolism, and bone health. These 15 foods are among the most nutrient-dense and healthiest foods out there. Include them in your diet for optimal health.

1. Spirulina

Spirulina is most nutritious food on this planet. This blue-green alga is found in freshwater lakes, rivers, and ponds—and now grown in controlled and sanitized areas for human consumption. It is one of the oldest life forms on Earth. Spirulina contains over 65 essential nutrients and is made up of 60 percent protein. It contains all essential amino acids, plus ten non-essential amino acids, and is rich in chlorophyll and beta-carotene—two important antioxidant and anti-inflammatory plant pigments.

 

This superfood has been linked to many health benefits including immune system support, cardiovascular support, cognitive support, and cellular health support. It has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s packed with essential nutrients for overall health.

 

Spirulina is available in most health food stores in powder, capsule, or tablet form. It is a rather expensive supplement, and so, not easily accessible to many people. If you can afford to invest the extra $30.00-50.00 monthly, it’s worth the nutrition profile.
