Pop Quiz: What are the top 10 health foods according to the Mayo Clinic?

The Mayo Clinic recently released its top 10 "best bets" for eating well. They are in alphabetical order (bummer, we'd prefer rankings!).

Here they are:

Almonds
Apples
Blueberries
Broccoli
Red beans
Salmon
Spinach
Sweet potatoes
Vegetable juice
Wheat germ

Positive traits of the above include: fiber, vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, proven ability to reduce risk of heart disease and other yucky conditions, low in calorie density, and easily found at your local supermarket.

Athletic-Minded Traveler Notes:

Wheat Germ? Yep. I never really thought of it as a food, but I've been sprinkling Honey Crunch Wheat Germ on our yogurt for years. Hooray.

Vegetable Juice: Make sure you select LOW sodium varieties.

To learn more about the results click through to the Mayo Clinic Site.
