The World’s Healthiest Foods: Essential Guide For The Healthiest Way Of Eating by George Mateljan is an excellent reference on the top foods to eat that are both nutrient rich and classified as whole foods.

Mateljan lists the top nutrient foods as spinach, swiss chard, asparagus,
broccoli, kale, tomato, brussel sprouts, celery, winter squash, garlic, onions, cucumber, avocado and corn. Each food is mapped to a micronutrient whose vitamin content is delineated in great detail.

The author’s choice of best fruits include strawberries, raspberries, kiwi,
cantaloupe and papaya. Top herbs include tumeric, parsley, cinnamon and ginger. Turmeric’s powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities explain why people with joint disease get relief when they add this spice to food preparations like salads, spreads and soups.

The author’s selection from the legume family includes lentils, soybeans, kidney beans and tofu. Superfood seeds include sunflower, flaxseeds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds. These are top choices for munching between meals.
