Who knew that when, in a terrible moment of weakness, you drank all of the greases that had dripped off of your George Foreman grill . . . you were actually being HEALTHY?
The BBC just enlisted a group of scientists to rank the 100 healthiest foods in the world, based on all of the nutrients they contain. And number eight is pork fat. They say it's a good source of B vitamins and minerals. Who knew?
Anyway, the top 10 healthiest foods are: Almonds . . . cherimoya fruit . . . ocean perch fish . . . flatfish . . . chia seeds . . . pumpkin seeds . . . Swiss chard . . . pork fat . . . beet greens . . . and snapper.
And some of the more popular foods that finished outside the top 10 are: Tangerines at 14th . . . peas 15th . . . chili powder 25th . . . kale 31st . . . cherries 47th . . . oranges 82nd . . . carrots 88th . . . and sweet potatoes 100th.
So are you trying to eat healthier? Why is it the foods we love never make the list? Don't you think it is all about moderation anyway?
(Here's a chart with all 100 foods. Spoiler: Nothing chicken fried made the list.)
