Pacman on a diet: The skinny on everyone’s favorite ghostbuster

1 Mar

The classic game seems to offer sound advice for eating healthy.  Here’s a quick look at how Pacman stays nutritious — if you’re good at dodging ghosts!

Cherries. Full of antioxidants, cherries help protect the body from diseases. If you suffer from arthritis or gout, add cherries to your diet. Trouble sleeping? Cherries can help… they contain melatonin, a natural sleep regulator.
Apples. Everyone’s favorite convenience food, apples may save you from cancer. They help satiate appetite, too, with fiber.
Bananas. Besides being delicious, this superfruit safeguards your heart with potassium, soothes ulcer pain like an antacid, and helps regulate your digestive system.
Pears. Another good source of fiber, pears are a healthy choice for just about everyone. Most of the nutrients reside in the skin, so wash and leave unpeeled.
Mangoes. Like the apple and pear, mangoes contain cancer-fighting pectin, a soluble fiber. If you are dieting, snack on mango — it is considered a high volume food and is low in calories.
Pretzels. The well-known shape that’s featured in Pacman is relatively safe, though high sodium content makes many question whether they can truly be called a healthy snack. Portions, portions, portions!

And the ghosts? Well, if Pacman’s figure is any indication, I have to say they’re best left an indulgence.

If the picture I’ve included here is more your thing, you’ll want to learn all about the health benefits of avocado — the board is made of guacamole!
