The Top Fourteen
According to government and media health pundits, the top best 14 foods are:
- Tea (green or black)
This uninspiring list reflects the current establishment angels (anti-oxidants and omega-3 fatty acids) and demons (saturated fats and animal foods).
Our list of the 14 best top foods, foods that supply vital nutrients including the fat-soluble vitamins, looks like this:
- Butter from grass-fed cows (preferably raw)
- Liver from grass-fed animals
- Eggs from grass-fed hens
- Cod liver oil
- Fish eggs
- Whole raw milk from grass-fed cows
- Bone broth
- Wild salmon
- Whole yoghurt or kefir
- Beef from grass-fed steers
- Organic Beets
EDIT: If you noticed there are only 13 foods on the list, that’s because I recently removed shrimp due to increasing mercury levels. Thanks to one of my readers for pointing this out.
A diet containing only these foods will confer lifelong good health; a diet containing only the foods in the first list is the fast track to nutritional deficiencies.

Great post; you reall should point out that in their list, the yogurt is always low fat or no fat!
Thanks for the revised superfoods list. I’m doing pretty good after looking at your new list! I need to find out about oysters and shrimp–why are they a super food? Just curious, I have nothing against them, in fact it’s refreshing that they are on the list!
I have to smile when I see that butter comes in number one!
On another website, where levels of mercury in various fish were enumerated, shrimp came in high on the charts. (sorry, I don’t have that URL handy) Maybe you could review your findings in regard to the growing alarm over mercury levels in our oceanic fish.
