Source: The 150 Most Effective ways to boost your Energy by jonny Bowden
To put together our list of 10 foods folks should be eating, but aren't, we checked in with Jonny Bowden, a California-based nutritionist and author of seven books, including The 150 Most Effective Ways to Boost Your Energy. Bowden says Americans should avoid taking their cues from the USDA's food pyramid, which he dismisses as the product of interest-group politics. Instead he favors a Mediterranean-style diet rich with fruits, vegetables, fish, whole grains, and olive and nut oils, focusing on the following 10 foods in particular.
Nutritionist Jonny Bowden notes that cherries are packed with anti-inflammatory properties. They contain antioxidants, thought to help the body protect against the damaging effects of free radicals and the chronic diseases associated with the aging process.
