A panel of experts from iVillage were asked to name their 5 best-for-you foods. I took what the 3 experts said and ranking them:
- Liz Neporent: Blueberries, red hot chili peppers, broccoli, peanut butter, and your personal favorite
- Lynn Grieger: Berries, nuts, greens, whole grains, and soy foods
- Lisa Lillien: Water, grapefruits, tofu shirataki noodles, salmon, and VitaTops
- Jonny Bowden: Sardines, blueberries, cherries, kale and organic, and grass-fed beef
- Stacy Berman: Breakfast, good fats, water, and vegetables
To be candid, I had a hard time separating the top 4. Each of them has a good mix of protein, fats, and low-glycemic carbs. In the article, Jonny Bowden somehow made my mouth water when talking about sardines - so that's kind of weird. Stacy Berman was easy to rank last because she didn't push protein --- and she didn't follow directions (she supplied only 4 answers!).
What's my top 5?
Joe Smith: Pure Protein protein shake with skim milk, apples, beans, broccoli, skim milk, water, cashews, natural peanut butter Almond Brownie Balance Bars, and a fat free bologna sandwich on high fiber organize bread (Food-for-Life) with a canola oil mayonnaise. OK, I didn't follow directions either :)
