I printed a copy of the list and it looks like I have no restrictions, but I might have some problems finding some items. However, I think I will make it a goal to at least attempt to eat everything at least once between now and the end of the year. Wish me luck!
The list is terrific, so thank you for making it available. The only issue I have is that certain foods are "off limits" for me. Nuts, Eggplant, Blackberries, tomatoes, figs, Kiwi, etc. All of these either contain or are seeds and with diverticulitis these would be my bane! But I am trying to "work around" these challenges.
This is great, I am happy to know that I am on the right track. I have started to add somthing new to my daily meals which makes it interesting. Thank for the list....
Quick edit --
Though I don't mind a list that includes dark chocolate!
Hmmm, that's an awfully long list. I think it would be a lot easier to say "Eat whole, unprocessed foods." Then you can't go wrong!
I just LOVE this, it is so great to know a lot of the SUPER FOODS on this list, they are included in my daily meals... Thank You sooooo much!!!!!!!!
Am printing out this list and carrying it in my purse! THIS is the kind of great nutrition info I need. Thanks, Becky!
I love this list and am taking it shopping today. I added a new SP goal of eating 10 different servings of from this list every day. Under Miscellaneous, I added turmeric, which is one of the most super of the superfoods and really should be on there.
I do, though, question the inclusion of potatoes, apples, grapes, and bananas. These items are packed with quick-dissolving sugar which is detrimental to weight loss and especially to diabetics. They may be better than cookies and frosting (refined sugar) as potatoes and bananas have potassium and B vitamins, but I do limit them in my meal plans.
Some of these items have lots of vitamins and healthy stuff in their peeling (apples, black beans, grapes, etc.). That makes eggplant pretty healthy stuff, although blueberries beat them out because the flavonoids and phenolic acid are all through the berry (note the color).
By the way, the previous comment got me curious so I looked up the nutritional info. on eggplant. 20 calories worth delivers a sizeable portion of calciun, potassium, and fiber--sounds good to me.
I love this list! It is so easy to go to the store and know what you shouldn't buy, but it is a whole different matter to go into the store with this list of what you should buy.
I am sure that most of these foods are very nutritious, however I have always heard that eggplant is not so. It's delicious, but as far as I know it holds very little if any nutritional value, so I am wondering why it is listed as a "Super Food"? Makes me wonder about some of the foods on the list that I am not familiar with...
I printed this out as well and will make a few copies. I'd like to see how many super foods I eat in a week. I have checked off nine on the list just today and that doesn't include dinner yet. Clearly I'm on the right track, but I think I can do better as I tend to eat a lot of the same foods day after day.
With all the choices you really have no excuse not to eat right most of the time.
