Great List! I enjoy many of these foods already. Some of these foods I hadn't thought of as a Super Food. For example - pumpkin. Love pumpkin but don't eat it much - thought it had too many carbs. This list has expanded my eating horizons. Thanks!
The best is yet to be.

Yep, the list mostly mirrors common sense when it comes to eating right. The books are really good though. They go into detail about what nutrients, antioxidants, and such a particular food has. They have help me add some foods I've either never or rarely eaten before such as soy and flax seeds.

I got this list from www.3fatchicks.com who compiled it from Dr. Pratt's first two books. I thought her list was very comprehensive and may be useful to our members. I have it hanging up right net to my desk at work as a reminder. You'll think twice before digging into that doughnut box!
