They say that you are what you eat. It follows that if you want to feel like a million dollars, then you need to be eating only the very best. Here are the most expensive healthy foods for a luxury life style:
Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
Coffee is one of the world’s most consumed beverage. Apart from providing drinkers with a much needed jolt of caffeine, coffee is also packed with antioxidants and can boost your metabolic rate helping you to burn fat. Anybody with a luxury life style should only be sipping the very best and the very best is the Kopi Luwak coffee retailing at $700 (about 544 Euros) per kilo. This Indonesian coffee is processed by passing through the digestive system of an Asian Palm Civet giving it a flavour that can’t be found in any other blend.
An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
The apple is one of nature’s super foods. From whitening your teeth to helping you avoid Alzheimer’s, the humble apple is a must staple food in any healthy person’s diet. At $21 (about 16 Euros) per apple, the Sekai-ichi apple is anything but humble. Grown in Japan, this luxury apple is washed in honey to keep it free from any blemishes.
Milk, it Does a Body Good
The milk produced by Nakazawa Foods will do your body real good. Lauded to relieve stress, this milk comes from cows that are milked only once a day at dawn in order to capture the highest levels of melatonin possible. Hopefully, the price tag of $43 (about 33 Euros) per quart, won’t negate its stress-relieving properties.
Spice Up Your Life
Saffron is the world’s most expensive spice retailing at about $8 (about 6 Euros) per gram. If you don’t know how to cook with it, a simple alternative is to add it to your tea or glass of warm Nakazawa Foods milk and enjoy its many health benefits including helping you sleep better, look younger, and breathe easier.
If you’re one of the many people who can’t stand the taste of plain water, a great option for you to keep hydrated is to eat water-rich foods such as watermelons. For anybody living a luxury lifestyle, only one watermelon is available to quench your thirst; the Densuke Black Watermelon. This sweet, crisp variety is only grown in Hokkaido Island, Japan. What distinguishes it from a normal watermelon is its black skin and hefty price tag of $121 (about 94 Euros) per melon.
Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams
An article about luxurious health foods just wouldn’t be complete without caviar featuring in it. Caviar is known as being a luxury food but I bet you didn’t know that it’s packed with health benefits from Vitamins A and D to Potassium and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. The most expensive caviar is sourced from the Iranian beluga. Alma’s caviar retails at $49,800 (about 38,700 Euros) per kilo.
There you have it, luxury food items for luxurious people. Should your luxury life style take you on a European food tour, don’t forget to pack your EHIC!
