Nice concise article. I was looking for something to share with parents of my daughter's volleyball team so we can put together healthy lunches and snacks to keep the energy level up. I think I found the perfect list!
This is a good list - certainly good for me, as I tend to forget about fruit other than apples, oranges and bananas. On the other hand, I never see barley on these kinds of lists, and it's got great fiber and lower calories than brown rice!

i am organic grower of some of cerials&vegetables. they are great.your article gives indepth information.
I'm so glad the list contained beans. I think beans are one of the most important foods you can add to your diet. They are low in calories and fat and high in fiber and protein. The will definitely keep you feeling full.
I was disappointed to see chicken on the list. It may be low in calories, but it has more cholesterol than beef. There is nothing powerful about a heart attack.
