10 foods we SHOULD eat

Ok I just saw this at Forbes.com saying that there are 10 food that we SHOULD be eating but PROBABLY don't - especially if we follow the food pyramid.

Cherries - packed with anti-inflammatories
Blueberries - contain antioxidants shown to reduce belly fat
Kiwifruit - full of Vitamin C - 115% of what you need at only 45 calories each
Grass Fed Beef - full of omega-3 fatty acids
Wild Salmon - packed with omega-3 fatty acids
Flax Seed - tremendous source of omega-3 fatty acids, and lignans an anti cancer compound and source of fiber to enhance digestion.
Whey Protein Powder - great source of protein shown to stimulate the immune system
Kale - contains indoles and sulforaphane, a compound found to fight cancer. Also contains calcium, iron and vitamins A, C and K and is great for the eyes
Coconut - fats called MCT used for energy high in lauric acid that kills pathogens
Dark Chocolate - rich in phytochemical flavanol improves cardiovascular health.

And very nicely I find that I already eat a lot of what is on this list, maybe not as much as I should but I love the fruit and who doesn't love chocolate (dark chocolate IS my all time favorite)
