Who knew that when, in a terrible moment of weakness, you drank all of the grease 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.
(Here’s a chart with all 100 foods. Spoiler: Nothing chicken fried made the list.)
