Becca, my fiancee, came across this article and I thought it was fantastic.  It discussed the idea of “superfoods”, and addressed which foods are really “worth” our bang for the buck.

Unsurprisingly, most of the exotic foods were either overpriced, lost much of their nutrient value in transit, or both.  Instead of these catchy but overpriced foods, most of the recommended “superfoods” were just good ‘ol fashioned fruits, veggies, legumes, lean proteins and healthy fats.  My only point of contention would be salmon, but in essence, this is a great list that proves you don’t have to spend lots of $$ to eat healthfully.  Bon appetit!
