We have been on a nutrient dense diet for three years now. A year ago we were introduced to Dr. Joel Fuhrman and the term nutrient dense, as we stated in http://heal-thy-self-cb.blogspot.com/2013/09/where-is-our-canary-now.html . We were so excited that we were already doing this. It assists with alkalizing our body, keeping away illnesses, and maximizes our health.
This terminology has now become so common there is now an article in Mother Earth News.
