Eat Right by the Numbers
BLOGGERS SEEM to have a habit of providing lists. 10 best of this, and 5 greatest of that.
There seems to be two reasons for such titles: 1.Reader like to scan blog posts, and lists are easy to scan and simpler to remember; and, consequently, 2. Blog posts with such titles are read more than those without an “x list” of something in the title.
So, in this Sunday Summary (a tradition started here two weeks ago), I’m going repost summaries of some of my diet/food focused articles of the past that are comprised of lists.
Read on and you’ll quickly get what I mean.
The 40 Best Age-Erasing Superfoods delves into the specific nutritional benefits derived from certain foods, such as flaxseeds, sweet potatoes, rosemary, blueberries, green tea, and 35 more. Have you heard the adage, “Food is medicine”? Well, this article tells you why each of these 40 foods is referred to as a “superfood”. It does a body good.
86 Year-old Billionaire’s Recipe for Longevity is the companion article to the 40 Best Age-Erasing Superfoods cited above. Oprah Winfrey interviewed billionaire David Murdock to learn about his remarkable vitality and the millions of dollars he has spent scientifically evaluating the health and longevity-boosting effects of certain foods, a list of 33 of which are reviewed, foods he calls, “The healthiest on earth”.
If you’ve made it through the above two articles, perhaps you’d like to give your eyes a rest from eating and are ready to watch a video. In 5 Healthy Eating Nutrition Tips, fitness guru Annick Robinson walks us through the grocery store and salad bar with a running commentary of what’s best to eat and why.
So, that’s the numbers game for this Sunday’s collection of summaries.
