  1. I have 85% chocolate at home. I didn’t know all the benefits of it. I realized that it could reduce the level of harmful LDL. I need this. In my opinion, the ten healthiest foods in the world are almonds, oily fish, broccoli, apples, honey, blueberries, sweet potatoes, porridge, kelp and cress.

  2. For me, chocolate is one of the best, plus, nuts, and also greens. Vegetables of any kind, something green, something yellow or orange or red to guard against cancer and a type of healthy carbohydrate (our New Zealand Kumara is very good for you- a type of sweet potato).
    Yet some will have other ideas.
    I also believe in fruit as well.
