... for Super Foods You Should Eat (*)

  1. Oranges.  Great-tasting and rich in vitamin C, folic acid, and fiber.
  2. Whole-Grain Bread.  It's higher in fiber and in about a dozen vitamins and minerals than enriched white bread or "wheat" bread.

  4. Broccoli.  Lots of vitamin C, carotenoids, and folic acid.
  5. Sweet Potatoes.  A nutritional All-Star- one of the most nutritious vegetables you can eat.  They're loaded with carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.
  6. Watermelon.  Excellent source of vitamin C and carotenoids-  and it tastes great!
  7. Beans.  Inexpensive, low in fat, and rich in protein, iron, folic acid, and fiber.   Choose garbanzo, pinto, black, Navy, kidney or lentils.
  8. Fat-free (Skim) or Low-Fat 1% Milk (but not 2%).  Excellent course of calcium, vitamins, and protein, with little or no artery-clogging fat and cholesterol..
  9. Oatmeal.  Plain, old-fashioned whole-grain oatmeal is inexpensive and has no added sugar or added fat.
  10. Spinach and Kale.  Loaded with vitamin C, carotenoids, calcium, and fiber.
