Default What foods are on YOUR superfoods list?

That aren't on the "official" one?

Beets are on mine. They're such a rich source of iron, loaded with flavonoids and folic acid, and so, so good for you. I love them roasted, with just a little cracked salt and pepper. I try to eat them at least a couple of times a week.

Just curious about what foods you deem "super", and why

tilapia-because it is a fish I will actually eat
Any veg-because I like them and it's not like any are bad for you.
Feta cheese-the only cheese I like and it makes anything taste better. If it helps me eat spinach it's super.

My personal superfood is any type of pepper. Really peppers have a lot of nutrients, they are low calorie and are very tasty.

OLIVES!

I use medium black olives for a savory, satisfying evening snack along with a cup of herbal tea sweetened with stevia.

10 medium olives are only 50 calories, but eaten slowly and enjoyed, sipping the tea, will make you feel full, and stop that after-dinner snack attack from getting out of hand.

prunes!

They actually have more antioxidants than berries!

I totally agree with Olives! And how can I forget Zucchini? I love Zucchini. I'd also add yellow squash.

There are a lot of good ones posted on this thread.

In addition to many of them I would like to add seaweed. Kombu, nori, wakame.. it is all good and contain more vitamins and minerals than land plants. They are an excellent source of iodine, iron, protein and calcium. Lots of other stuff... flourine (raw seaweed only), ... They are an excellent benefit to healthy hair and skin. (although there is some controversy about affects of iodine from seaweed and milk on teens suffering from acne).

They are so versatile... Different kinds in soups, sour side dishes, as a rice wrap, as a flavoring to other dishes, ...even in my steel-cut oats. The minerals in kombu and wakame help make beans more digestible when cooked together.
