Oprah's list of Top 10 Superfoods

I was on Oprah.com yesterday, doing research for a new project that I'm working on with Sarma, and to my surprise I ran across this list of Oprah's Top 10 Super Foods filed under the category - Things Every Woman Should Know.

I'm just excited that Oprah is using the word "Super Foods" not to mention that 7 out of 10 of them are strait-up raw!

  1. Açaí fruit: This little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world. It can often be found in juice form in health food and gourmet stores.
  2. Anything in the "Allium Family": Garlic, onions, leeks, scallions, chives and shallots can all help the liver eliminate toxins and carcinogens.
  3. Barley: This can be used as a breakfast cereal, in soups and stews, and as a rice substitute. Barley's also high in fiber, helping metabolize fats, cholesterol and carbohydrates.
  4. Green Foods: Green foods like wheat and barley grasses can be bought in powder, tablet or juice form, and offer greater levels of nutrients than green leafy vegetables. They also help cholesterol, blood pressure and immune response.
  5. Buckwheat, Seed and Grain: Buckwheat is loaded with protein, high in amino acid, stabilizes blood sugar and reduces hypertension.
  6. Beans and Lentils: You can reduce cholesterol while beefing up on antioxidants, folic acid and potassium. Try kidney, black, navy, pinto, chickpeas, soybeans, peas and lentils.
  7. Hot Peppers: Both bell and chili peppers contain antioxidants, have twice the Vitamin C as citrus fruit and work as great fat burners.
  8. Nuts and Seeds: You can't go wrong with a handful of nuts a day—walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia and pistachio nuts contain omega-3 fats, which are great for your heart. Raw, unsalted nuts and seeds are best.
  9. Sprouts: Numerous varieties of sprouts are great with any meal. They're a great source of protein and Vitamin C. Try adding them to any dish and your immune system will get a boost.
  10. Yogurt and Kefir: These cultured foods contain healthful bacteria that aid immune function, and the calcium helps burn fat. Try using them as a base for a smoothie.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a Foreigner from Singapore in Brunei and I am not familiar with anyone in this foreign land and I seek urgent help from anyone who could help me out in my current critical situation. I have no one to turn to and I really hope someone could really help me.

Two month ago, I rented a shop house in Brunei, wishing to open a fashion boutique with my fiancee. This is my very first time doing business and due to my childishness and wrong calculation, I bought too much stock and I am left with insufficient fund to sustain this business. Not only am I having great difficulty in continuing this business, I am desperately struggling with my own livelihood and personal survival; I am now only left with less than $20.00 in my wallet, and this is all that I am left with to survive with my fiancee. We no longer have the ability to pay next month's rent, having trouble in buying food and not being able to continue the business anymore. Time is really running out for us. We tried to seek help from our relatives but was shut out and ignored. In the real world, when one is really in need, everyone will just disappear for no apparent reason at all and this has really sadden us greatly. We wanted to stand up to prove to those that have shut the door so heartlessly that there's one thing in life that is more precious than money... and it's love... We really hope someone could give us support and give us a helping hand to pull us out from our struggle towards a new hope in life.

I seek desperate help from any kind hearted and willing soul to please help me out of my current situation. I know I was wrong to start a business without thinking deep enough and with insufficient maturity to establish a business. My decision now is to donate all my Stocks to an Orphanage, but I really need someone to share half the burden with me.

It is with a sincere plea and request that I hope for someone who could help me by buying over our New Stocks at around half the price and to donate all the stocks to an Orphanage, hence also in helping me and my fiancee to be able to return to Singapore to have a New hope and lease of life in order to start over again.

I invested too much capital in my Stocks which cost around $60,000. I hope my humble request of asking for a sum of $36,000 is harmless to anyone who could help me out in my current struggle for survival.

I wish to be able to be given a chance and a new hope to be able to start my life over again. Please consider my genuine plea of Help.

Yours Faithfully,

Shen
