Nutritionist Jonny Bowden has created a list of healthful foods people
should be eating but aren't.
I asked Dr. Bowden, author of "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth," to
list some favorite foods that are easy to find but don't always find
their way into our shopping carts.
Here's his advice.
Beets: They are a rich source of folate as well as natural red pigments
that may be cancer fighters.
How to eat: Fresh, raw and grated to make a salad. Heating decreases
the antioxidant power.
Swiss chard: A leafy green vegetable packed with carotenoids that
protect aging eyes.
How to eat: Chop and saute in olive oil.
Dried plums: Okay, so they are really prunes, but packed with
How to eat: Wrapped in prosciutto and baked.
Pumpkin seeds: The most nutritious part of the pumpkin and packed with
magnesium; high levels of the mineral are associated with lower risk
for early death.
How to eat: Roasted as a snack, or sprinkled on salad.
Sardines: Dr. Bowden calls them "health food in a can." They are high
in omega-3's, contain virtually no mercury and are loaded with calcium.
They also contain iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper
and manganese as well as a full complement of B vitamins.
How to eat: Choose sardines packed in olive or sardine oil.
Frozen blueberries: Associated with better memory in animal studies.
How to eat: Blended with yogurt or chocolate soy milk and sprinkled
with crushed almonds.
In my own house, I only have two of these items --pumpkin seeds, which
I often roast and put on salads, and frozen blueberries, which I mix
with milk, yogurt and other fruits for morning smoothies.
How about you?
Have any of these foods found their way into your shopping cart?
