The Top 100 Fitness Foods is featured in this photo. If I remember the book costs under $20. It lists peanuts as being high in protein along with almonds and walnuts. Walnuts are a great plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
The green leaf lettuce came from the CSA box so as you can see you can get multiple servings from one box of organic produce.
The organic lime-pepper vegetable tofu soup is the Splendid Spoon offering.
I read in Self magazine about the woman who founded Splendid Spoon. I also like their lentil-kale soup. I didn’t like her cauliflower-coconut soup though.
Each 16 oz container of Splendid Spoon soup costs $6. You can spend close to $4 on Progresso soups which have chemicals. So springing for the extra dollar or two for Splendid Spoon offerings makes sense to me. The soup is organic and fills you up.
I had written in here about research that indicates poor nutrition can lead to depression.
From The Top 100 Fitness Foods:
Under beans and legumes section:
“Lentils are also crammed full of folate, an energy-boosting vitamin that plays a key role in the production of serotonin, the neurotransmitter in the brain associated with feeling happy.”
Food to improve mood: what better way to enjoy the day?
I recommend everyone buy a copy of The Top 100 Fitness Foods.
As you can see in the photo, it’s a short, compact volume. The book also features recipes and a food and ailments directory in the back.
