Much depends on your source of information.  Health and diet recommendations often make conflicting claims.  Plus, recommendations may change over time as we learn more from research.  Vegetarians, vegans, or raw foods proponents may take issue with the inclusion of salmon, or whole grains, or oysters, or cooked foods.  Further, the food source is important.  Free-range meat is healthier than food farm meat.  Look for few if any food additives, artificial flavors or colors, and avoid foods produced using insecticides or herbicides.  

When all else fails, dark chocolate and red wine will get you through.  Cheers.
