Fibromyalgia and Eating Foods High in Nutrient Density

One of the best ways to assess food’s value is to ask whether it has nutrient density.  The nutrient density of a food is the amount of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and protein it has relative to its caloric content.  The more nutrient-dense, the more health promoting a food is.  These are the foods which are the closest to their natural state as well.  Here are some examples:

  • Raw nuts and seeds, particularly raw almonds and fresh walnuts, or flaxseeds and flaxseed oils.  These are particularly rich in essential walnutsfatty acids, vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, potassium, and fiber.
  • Whole-grains such as quinoa, brown rice, and beans and legumes are nutrient-dense.  Avoid white “enriched” flour, which is not.
  • Organic produce is the most nutrient dense foods around.  Fruits and vegetables, particularly those that are organically grown, are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytonutrients.

When we eat as Mother Nature intended us to eat, and eat fresh foods which are in their most natural state rather than being processed and devitalized, we re-claim our health and well-being.
