Superfoods - From Dr. Scherger’s Book: Lean and Fit

A Doctor’s Journey to Healthy Nutrition and Greater Wellness

I have listed here foods that have been shown to be the healthiest foods we can eat. They are listed alphabetically and if you include many of these in your daily nutrition you will be enhancing your health every day.

There are many “superfood” lists and they include what is here and sometimes more, such as the book by Jonny Bowden in Appendix IV. I like this shorter list of the best of the good foods. If a food of nature is not listed here, do not feel that it must be avoided. Remember, eat the foods of nature and you will be better off than the great majority of the population.
