Energy foods: nourishing food
Years ago, we had a speaker at a convention. He was a nutritionist for a NFL football team. He said the most "nourishing" food was cantaloupe.
I'm not sure if he meant anything specific, I think general all around food. As a result I like to eat cantaloupe, not sure if I get more energy or not, but I think it fits well into my diet. Wendy:
Did a quick search, and I think this says it all. WOW!
Cantaloupe contains a wide variety of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, including the carotenoids alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin; the flavonoid luteolin; the organic acids ferulic and caffeic acid; and two cucurbitacins—cucurbitacin B and cucurbitacin E. Cantaloupe is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids) and vitamin C. It is also a very good source of potassium and a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B1, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, folate, magnesium, copper, and vitamin K.
