WHITE. The dreaded “white foods,” right? WRONG! White foods are some of the most powerful on the planet. I for one, am tired of the white foods bashing and am taking a stand! Take a looksee…
Of course there are more like parsnips, durian, and jicama…
Some have white varieties such as white radishes; white pumpkins; white peaches; white nectarines; white corn, etc.
Many seeds, nuts, and beans are white…
Some I’m not sure about such as guavas. Or, for example, kohlrabi (green or purple) which, if not young or of certain variety, can have inedible colored skin and only white parts to eat — like the black radishes I mentioned in my black foods post.
Of course we must avoid processed junkola, but that isn’t real food, is it? I mean flour is an isolated processed part of a whole. Very few whole foods are the dreaded “white foods.” I’ll give you white potatoes and popcorn, but even those are sorta okay once in awhile.
But let’s set ’em straight, shall we? Next time someone says to “avoid the ‘white foods,'” rattle off some of the above power foods. Educate them about the many delicious, healthful, anti-aging white foods that the Nutrient-Dense-Eaters among us eat to live ;^)
- Jerusalem Artichoke
- White Lima Beans
- White Chias
- Sunflower Seeds
- White Figs
- White Grapes
Can you think of some other white foods?
