  • This was an eye-opening article for me. I realized that I am in a fruit/vegetable rut and have not been eating many of the 3-and 4-star choices. I'm going to take this list with me to the grocery store next time I go! - 4/1/2008 9:53:45 PM
  • Regarding the Peanut Butter comment. This only lists peanut butter as protein, but it's a great source for healthy fat. You can still include this in your diet. It's good for you! - 3/26/2008 1:14:43 PM

  • Another ty for you Becky,
    I guess this is read Becky's articles day!!! I had already read it, but found, that the more I read an article over, I gain a new insight. I had to buy a note book just for spark. Looks like I will need a notebook with pockets just for nutrtion. Bravo for another well written article. nancylee46 - 2/28/2008 8:09:36 AM
  • This is a very informative article. Was surprised to see Peanut Butter so far down and here I have been eating an English muffin with a tad of peanut butter with my fruit (protein with the fruit) maybe now i will try something else as a protein instead. - 2/27/2008 11:07:20 AM

  • This is a fairly good chart, but I'm going to do some research and see if i can make my own. As a vegan, a good portion of the chart isn't things I include in my diet. And a lot of the foods on the list, I'm pretty sure I would rank differently.

    And as far as apples being 1 star, the article clearly states, "There is nothing wrong with 1-star and 2-star foods, but they generally provide fewer nutrients when compared to the 3-star and 4-star foods."

    So thanks for the article SP. Definitely a great thing for most people, and a great idea-generator for me! - 2/22/2008 10:59:25 PM
  • Great info! Surprised to see apples in the bottom of the chart! I always thought AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS TH E DOCTOR AWAY . - 2/6/2008 12:47:11 AM
  • Its always great to reaffirm what you already know to be true, like the good, bad & then the UGLY. I like my sweets & ice cream but I am trying to limit them with healthy alternatives. Thanks again for the info! - 1/16/2008 2:51:35 PM
