Jamie Oliver’s 14 Super-Foods That Will Help You Live To 100

Jamie Oliver has travelled the world to put together a list of 14 foods that will help us live to 100.  He is releasing a new TV show where he travels to Costa Rica, Japan, and Greece discovering what people eat to live a long healthy life.  The refreshing part about the list is that it doesn’t contain the usual unusual foods,  that are normally associated with healthy eating such as acai, gogi berries and chai.


Jamie Oliver said:

It’s not about goji berries and green drinks. It’s about cooking smart with simple foods… They’re all using humble ingredients to make some of the simplest and tastiest dishes I’ve ever tasted.

The full list of ‘hero’ ingredients are:

  1. Eggs
  2. Goat’s milk
  3. Fish
  4. Sweet Potato
  5. Wild Greens and Herbs
  6. Tofu
  7. Walnuts
