The famous British chef Jamie Oliver visited almost whole world to find out which foods are best for us and allows us longer and healthier living.
After visiting many countries, such as Costa Rica, Japan and Greece, he compiled a list of fourteen ‘’super foods’’ which include mainly simple products that are easy to find in local supermarkets and markets.
“We are not talking here about the juice of goji berries or something like that. You should prepare your meals with simple ingredients. The best meals I tried made were from simple ingredients – said the British chef.”
He also recommended eating less meat; drink more water and never skipping breakfast. “When I traveled around the world, I have met people who have had a long and productive life. And they all ate rich and strong breakfast.”
