Superfoods for super health

You can't open a magazine or peruse a website without some article, mention or ad promoting superfoods - those foods that have high concentrations of disease-fighting nutrients that can improve your health and quality of life. Though there are many exotic superfoods, such as goji berries, acai berries, mangosteen, and noni, just to name a few, some of your everyday, supermarket foods can supercharge your health - and save you some money. Here are 10 of the best superfoods to include in your diet.

2. Walnuts

Nearly all nuts can be considered superfoods due to their heart-healthy unsaturated fats and other phytonutrients. Walnuts happen to be high in omega-3s, which research indicates can reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and even depression. A daily handful of walnuts — which contains about 200 calories — is literally a generous handful of health. Nosh on walnuts as a snack or incorporate them into your favorite recipes — adding chopped walnuts to any dish will lend a delectable crunch and nutty flavor.
