Super Foods

A mailing I recently got from the Center for Science in the Public interests lists the following 10 foods as super foods:

Cantaloupe -1/4 of a melon gives you all the vitamin A you need for the day

Sweet Potatoes -they have lots of carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.

Soy Milk with Added Nutrients

Blueberries- They have lots of vitamin C, and antioxidents

Oranges-They have lots of vitamin C, folic acid, and fiber.

Broccoli-It has lots of vitamin C, carotenoids, and folic acid.

Whole Grain Bread-It is higher in fiber, vitamins, and minerals than enriched white bread or "wheat" bread.

Watermelon-It is an excellent source of vitamin C and carotenoids.

Beans-They are low in fat, rich in protein, iron, folic acid, and fiber.

Spinach or Kale-They have lots of vitamin C, carotenoids, calcium, and fiber.

I eat broccoli, beans, and whole-grain bread every day, and I eat most of the other super foods as often as I can. I think a good diet is very important. ************************************************************************************

"The animals you eat are not those who devour others; you do not eat the carnivorous beasts, you take them as your pattern. You only hunger for the sweet and gentle creatures which harm no one, which follow you, serve you, and are devoured by you as the reward of their service.-Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile
