My relationship with food has been a complicated one, to say the least.
With all the struggles I have had in the past with using foods to stuff feelings, I just love it when I read the latest list of “Super” foods touted as “good for you” and I actually like those foods…and eat them regularly! Feels like a victory over my past binge eating disorder!
I love dark chocolate, almonds, blueberries, oatmeal, and steamed veggies (apparently, better for you than raw–who knew?). I use olive oil and would be willing to try pinto beans and sterol-fortified OJ, along with the other foods Real Age says will keep my heart healthy and help me live a little longer and maybe well-er.
