1. Brussel Sprouts: These are highly nutritious vegetables. They can be prepared raw or cooked. Studies have shown that the high vitamin C content1 in Brussels sprouts protects against DNA damage. [1] They have only roughly 38 calories per cup. [2]

2. Onions: Onions are either white, yellow, or red – but all have few calories. For about 110 grams of an onion, there are roughly 44 calories. [3]

3. Watermelon: A well-known source of good taste and hydration, watermelons provide almost every nutrient one would need, including vitamin C. Over 150 grams should contain 46 calories. [4]

4. Celery: Celery is well known for having low calories. [5] It has high water content, with a calorie count of just 18 calories in over 100 grams.

5. Cabbage: Either purple (yes they exist) or green, cabbage is a staple of many salads. This would probably be because of its calorie count of around 20 per 90 grams. [6]

6. Mushrooms: Mushrooms, specifically white mushrooms, is often used as a replacement for meat by vegetarians and vegans. For all the nutrients they offer, they have a low-calorie count of 15 for every 70 grams or so. [7]

7. Cucumber: Another staple in salads, cucumbers are very low in calories, with 8 for 52 grams. [8] They are high in water content.

8. Zucchini: Zucchinis are low in calories with 18 for every 124 grams. They have become increasingly popular, especially as a replacement for noodles, which are high in calories.

9. Apples: An apple a day, right? For one cup of apple slices, there are 57 calories. [9] However, digesting apples in itself requires energy, reducing the calorie count even further.

10. Cauliflower: For one cup, cauliflower has 25 calories and roughly 5 grams of carbs. [10] Cauliflower has substituted other high-carb foods and has enjoyed a surge in popularity.

11. Asparagus: Asparagus, especially the purple variant, has compounds that help prevent heart disease. [11] There are 24 calories in 134 grams of asparagus.

12. Carrots: Associated with good eyesight, carrots are a good source of vitamin A. For one serving of about 128 grams, there are 53 calories. [12]

13. Kale: These leafy sources of nutrition have only 34 calories per serving.

14. Oranges: Oranges and other tropical fruits are very nutritious and a great source of vitamin C.

15. Broccoli: One serving has 31 calories and more vitamin C than a human’s daily requirement. [13]

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

>> Click here to find out about them now

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
