8 Foods You Should Always Buy

After my last piece, 10 Foods You Should Never Buy, I wanted to focus on what you should put in your grocery cart. Yes, I know nutrition is a highly individual process, but these 8 foods are pretty amazing and health-promoting.

My take on healthy nutrition is that it's a lot like an orchestra. Just as each instrument works with the others to produce a beautiful symphony, the nutrients in food work together to create the foundation for your health. It's the interaction of nutrient-dense foods that enhances immune response, causes cancer cells to die, repairs DNA caused by toxic exposures, and enhances cell-to-cell communication. Here are 8 foods I hope you'll enjoy very soon, perhaps in concert.
