Super foods

The Web site Everyday Health just posted a list of a baker's dozen of the most powerful super foods. They admit that if you ask 10 nutritionists for their own lists, you will get 10 different lists. But this list, the site claims, is a good place to start.

I have to admit that I love lists. It might be my short attention span, but lists are easy to read and stick with me longer that something I read in paragraph form.

Because this post would be entirely too long if I listed all the foods, wrote about what had to say, and added my own thoughts, I have decided to publish the the list of foods today, and then for the next 13 weeks, I will focus on each one in Wednesday's Pick of the Week. I cannot wait to get to week 12 to write about my favorite food, red wine. I never looked at red wine as a favorite food. Now this is great news!

The list:
  1. Avocados
  2. Apples
  3. Blueberries
  4. Cabbage
  5. Fish and fish oil
  6. Garlic
  7. Mushrooms
  8. Almonds
  9. Eggs
  10. Flax seeds
  11. Pomegranates
  12. Red Wine
  13. Dark chocolate


  1. I can't wait until you talk about #13...

  2. I love just about everything on that list!
    Must admit flax seed has me stumped. What do I do with it???

  3. flax seeds -- hmmm! You cannot heat them, which I will explain on May 19th. I take 1 tablespoon of the oil daily because it is so good for you. Or, you can take supplements.
