  1. BC, my list overlaps with yours quite a bit.

    Fish of all kinds (but especially salmon), greens (!), garlic & onions, beans & lentils, chiles, rice, yogurt, berries, wine, and citrus.

    1. Oh, and açaí is a fruit from a palm, not a berry.

      1. Same as yours except change the wine and champagne for mixed drinks and add bacon! :D

        1. I would drop your oysters, champagne and burrito, make sure the wine is red, then add lots of blueberries and black coffee. And duck. Lots of duck Healthier for you than chicken and duck and goose are the only poultry I know of that are very good for your cholesterol levels. Bon appetite!

          1. re: Caroline1

            No hormones allowed in duck farming in the U.S., and few antibiotics and drugs are given. Also, since this is a less industrialized line than chicken farming, I think that helps keep overall quality up. Interesting history:
