Checkin’ it twice

by Khushboo on February 2, 2011

I love lists.  Whenever I feel stressed out or overwhelmed (i.e. packing for trips), writing/typing it all down seems to have a calming effect.  The process of getting tasks done can sometimes be a pain but nothing beats the satisfaction of crossing things off (can I get an Amen?? 😆 ).    Fortunately the list I am about to present to you doesn’t require me to do anything except for eat…and when is that ever a bad thing? 😉

Real Simple asked the top dietitians and nutritionists to reveal which superpowered ingredients we should be incorporating into our diets our regularly.  I’m all for trying new ‘superfoods’.  Fortunately the only bad experience I recall having was with wheatgrass.  Sorry to be blunt but that stuff is nasty! Here ‘s the list of the apparent ’30 Healthiest Foods’.  I’ve italicised those foods which I’ve already eaten this week.

  1. Mushrooms
  2. Walnuts
  3. Whole-Grain Pasta
  4. Peanut and Nut Butters
  5. Oatmeal
  6. Barley
  7. Quinoa
  8. Lentils
  9. Bulgur
  10. Almonds
  11. Eggs
  12. Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  13. Chicken Breasts
  14. Wild Salmon
  15. Sardines
  16. Kale
  17. Kiwi
  18. Blueberries
  19. Broccoli
  20. Avocados
  21. Black Beans
  22. Sweet Potatoes
  23. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  24. Edamame
  25. Chard
  26. Kidney Beans
  27. Oranges
  28. Spinach
  29. Pumpkin
  30. Skim Milk

    14/30: not too shabby considering it’s only Wednesday!   Kudos if the foods above regularly feature in your diet.  If not, expand your horizons…you may surprise yourself :)!

    Quantity defo matters. I gues getting even a bit of a ‘superfood’ beats having none at all 🙂
