Most of these are foods I eat regularly, so to meet the challenge of trying a new superfood, I've added almond milk, rice milk, triticale, and hemp seeds to my shopping list. Do I use triticale just like wheat?

So this list is pretty much an unprocessed american diet? All of these foods can be found in most processed food as well. This list is quite simplistic and misleading.

I'm surprised to not see coconut oil on this list. Also, canola oil is definitely in question.

Meat and meat by products (eggs and milk) may have protein but they are also full of antibiotics and steroids. I don't eat them.

Vegetables and fruit are great as long as they are organically grown. I have picked up non organic apples at the store and felt the pesticide residue on them. I showed the difference to my husband and he quit giving me a hassle about the extra cost.

Unless strawberries are organic, don't let them get near your mouth. They are a toxic soup.

Meat and dairy are great options. My whole life I was told that most Americans get plenty of protein, so I assumed I was, wrong. I find it incredibly difficult to increase my protein, without increasing my carbs and fat even more, if I don't eat enough meat and dairy.

OK, so I had to count. I eat 95 of these! The vast majority on a regular basis.

I also agree with the comments that most of the meat and dairy should not be listed as super foods!

The healthiest place to get calcium is actually dark, leafy greens. Some of us don't eat dairy, or dairy substitutes like soy milk. (I have acne that seems to react specifically to these foods.) That doesn't mean we have to be deficient. I understand vegetables were listed in their own column, but if you're going to have a column to list calcium-rich foods, why would you leave off vegetables and sardines?

Sorry - but meat and dairy are not super foods. Unless you count them as 'super dangerous' for one's health. There is quite a lot of scientific evidence that suggests that animal products contribute to getting cancer. See the book 'Eat to Live', for example.

A worry to see low fat items on this list!

While all these foods are healthy, I don't know that I would consider them all "super" foods. I thought there was a smaller group of foods that were suppose to be WAY above the rest. Also see chia seeds are missing?

While I find the article interesting to say the least I would have to eliminate almost half the list for health reasons. But it is great to see my favorites are all on the list.:)

this is a good list of items. I am going to paste this on my fridge. Then I will know what else to buy at the store that is going to help me. I get lost trying to figure out what to eat all the time and this is going to help. Thanks again..

Canola oil is a confusing one to list here -- I thought it is controversial and possibly carcinogenic no?

This is a great article. I always have a problem trying to pick the correct foods to help me eat better.
