I spent some time searching out what super foods are the best...and this is the list I came up with. I then looked in my food storage and fridge and I noticed I have all of them. As a vegan I try to eat well with foods that are healing to my body and not hurting it. Knowing that I eat all these foods brought a smile to my face realizing I am eating right while reducing many health problems that may appear in the future. Here is my list of good foods to eat and the nutritonal value they provide is amazing.
