20 Nutrient Dense Foods

There are a lot of Top 10 lists of around the internet. They promise to improve your health or help you with weight loss and they make it to this top 10 list for various reasons. Some lists include groups of foods such as "citrus" or "vegetables" while one list even includes milk and microwaveable brown rice.

If I was to put together a list of top foods to eat for health, it might include the crisp breads that I eat or the almond milk that I choose to use to replace dairy.

This list of 20 foods that I’m about to list are actually based on a nutrient density score devised by Dr Joel Fuhrman author of Eat To Live, but they’re not the top 20, they’re the bottom 20 of a list of 30 top foods.

The were first published on my other and I’m now continuing them here.

Hey, that's for the great list of Superfoods. But, where is the Acai?? Diet Reviews tells me that acai is #1, according to Dr. Perricone.

Acai is fine, but no reason to base your whole diet around it. A little bit here and there. Daily if you can, but in fact, vegetables, dark leafy greens and chia seeds is fantastic too.

This list is all well and good, but where is the source of your information? Do you have a link to Dr. Fuhrman's research? Also, just curious about the carrot juice - was there a certain brand that Fuhrman tested, or does this mean juiced raw carrots?

@Stacy, his book "Eat To Live" lists all the sources for his references and yes, he's talking about real carrot juice.

He nor I buy anything from a package.

Only real food works
