The Top 30 Superfoods

What are The Top 30 Superfoods, as defined by their nutrient density? Well, as Dr Fuhrman outlines them on the ANDI Aggregate Nutrient Density Index, here they are.

Notice the amount of green vegetables and colored non-starchy vegetables and fruit; the ideal foods to optimize the way you eat. Also, beans and seeds for up to 30-50% resistant starch providing the nutrients you need without all the calories; credibly satiating!

If you want to be a superfoodie, you will want to include an array of these superfoods, raw and cooked.

And note: green vegetables are the foundation of any healthy eating plan, period. They are the most nutrient rich foods around and there are more meals and menus that can be made from greens, fruits, beans, nuts and seeds than you can ever imagine.

Start incorporating the top 30 superfoods in the way you eat today.
