I think it's olive oil...the best source of healthy, monounsaturated fats.

acerola, goji berries, noni, cinnamon, acai, would be the healthiest known to mankind. Others that are more well known would be blueberries, spinich, and kale. The highest antioxidant content would be clove oil, nothing even comes close actually.

Kefir-- below is an excerpt from http://www.growyouthful.com/tips/recipes/kefir.php

Kefir is a refreshing, probiotic cultured milk drink that originated in the northern Caucasus Mountains many centuries ago. It has a thick creamy sticky consistency, tastes a little like yogurt, and has a milky, yeasty smell. Many aromatic compounds contribute to its unique flavour and distinctive pleasant aroma. Kefir has a slight natural carbonated effervescence, and contains between 0.08 - 2 % alcohol

Kefir is unlike other dairy products, because it is easily digestible and contains little sugar (lactose), especially if you let it ferment for a longer period. The proteins in the milk are also broken down, and are virtually in a pre-digested state. I drink it on its own, as a meal in itself, and a source of protein. Some people combine it with fruit or muesli, or use it to make a smoothie. It makes a great starter for sourdough breads, cakes, and all forms of baking. If, like most people, you have a damaged digestive system, a glass of kefir is a soothing and healing product. You may find that during the hours after drinking it, your stomach feels settled and stable

Unlike yogurt, it contains around thirty strains of bacteria and yeast, including lactobacillus bacteria. The culture comes in little translucent balls called grains, though these grains have nothing to do with any kind of cereal. They are a complex bio-matrix structure of soluble gel-polysaccharide, organic acids, yeasts and bacteria. This polysaccharide called Kefiran is made from two mono-saccharides, Glucose and Galactose in almost equal proportions. Kefiran has anti-tumour properties, preventing the development of metastasis. It is an anti-inflammatory and is an excellent stimulant for your immune system. The grains produce their own antibiotics. Kefir is rich in minerals and vitamins, particularly the B group, and provides for your daily vitamin needs. Kefir slows the ageing process. It has many healing properties, helping with heart and artery disease, lowering cholesterol levels and regulating blood pressure. It assists your digestive system, healing the liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, gall bladder and stomach ulcers, and soothing your digestive and urinary tracts

Good list!

Also dark chocolate (I'm not joking) and green tea.

Here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:

cancer
rheumatoid arthritis
high cholesterol levels
cariovascular disease
infection
impaired immune function

Also the PEA in chocolate is the "feel-good" chemical. That too can help with a lot of things. Feeling down? Eat some dark chocolate and have a green tea. It does wonders. I love blue berries, and cranberries are also good, raspberries too!

Almonds are another really good food too.

Can't be healthy if I hate eating it. :)
That's why I only eat things I love to eat.
