The Top Ten ‘Powerhouse Foods’ List Will Surprise You

YouTube

Do you think you are eating healthy?  I thought I was doing a pretty good job eating right, but I’m not so sure after seeing the list of the Top 10 “Powerhouse” foods.

Not only don’t I eat many of the foods these researchers say are the best to help in the prevention of disease, I honestly don’t even know what some of them are. Chard?

And some of the foods I thought were the healthiest, fruits and berries, for instance, didn’t even factor on the list.

Researchers at New Jersey’s William Paterson University compiled a list of powerhouse foods based on their amounts of 17 crucial nutrients. They looked at both fruits and vegetables, with veggies dominating the list.

Watercress came in with a perfect score of 100, the only food to do so.

Here is the top 10:

Watercress (100)

Chinese cabbage (91.99)

Chard (89.27)

Beet greens (87.08)

Spinach (86.43)

Chicory (73.36)

Leaf lettuce (70.73)

Parsley (65.59)

Romaine lettuce (63.48)

Collard greens (62.49)
