  • Guess I did alright today - I had wild blueberries in my smoothie and pinto beans in my chili. - 3/24/2016 11:53:45 PM
  • I like the fiber benefit that I get from beans and have to remember to take the fiber count away from the carbs, and that makes the whole picture look better and myself feel better too!! - 12/7/2015 10:44:01 AM
  • I don't use lemon juice for the fruit. I have found that canned pineapple with juice, keeps my fruits much fresher than the lemon juice. Give it a try. - 11/24/2015 9:15:00 PM
  • I agree with Woubbie's comment. Also the need for updating.

    I still reckon the best way to go is moderation while getting as wide a variety as possible - especially given the disclaimer in the article that the highest antioxidant providers do not necessarily provide the overall best nutrition. - 10/27/2015 5:14:05 PM
  • Organic dried beans, properly soaked/sprouted, rinsed and boiled till tender are cheaper, healthier, more easily digested and BPA-free. They are heavy on carbs, though.

    I do think it is odd to list blueberries twice, and beans several times. Some of the fruits are on EWG's Dirty Dozen list, so I buy organic to reduce pesticide intake. - 9/29/2015 9:58:52 AM
  • Very disappointed in SP's use of graphics for lists and such. As a blind user of SP I am not able to read such lists. I wanted to do this as part of the fit food challenge and not sure of the entire list. Got the gist of the list from the recipe suggestions, but.... Can't you just use text in articles? Thanks. - 9/17/2015 11:50:45 AM

    Nutrition Action says anti oxidants has not shown, over time, to be the "power house" that they thought and hoped it would be, does not cure anything, for one thing, researchers are disappointed in latest findings. Companies that sell supplements don't tell you that, would lose a lot of business . Billion Dollar business, don't forget it. - 8/17/2015 4:50:58 AM

    No mention of chia seeds? They are the real powerhouse. - 4/13/2015 10:55:28 AM
  • WHERE IS ALL THIS TALK ABOUT ANTIOXIDANTS ARE NOT AS GOOD FOR YOU AS THEY THOUGHT? I DON'T BELIEVE THAT AT ALL. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHERE THAT IS COMING FROM. I HAVE NEVER READ THAT AND I READ A LOT ABOUT WHAT IS HEALTHY AND GOOD FOR YOU. PHYL32 - 4/12/2015 10:27:32 PM

    Too bad they are finding out anti oxidants are not really the "miracle" they hoped they would be, researchers say they expected more from anti oxidants than what is being found out. Don't expect cures of disease from them, and don't go crazy spending tons of money on those foods. - 4/12/2015 8:21:00 AM

    Dzpups dried beans have less sodium and better for u then canned - 4/12/2015 7:08:44 AM
  • I love everything on this list except black beans and artichokes. Maybe I'll have to learn to like them. - 1/24/2015 11:20:54 AM
  • Dried beans you have control over how they are processed. You control salt content and you can even try sprouting, but use organic and it takes awhile for the bigger beans. By using dried beans you also save on environmental waste, and you control the serving sizes better. I soak most of mine overnight and then brink to a boil for 20 min and drain the water, this reduces the gas production. I then put fresh water on to boil and cook them until they are the consistency you want. some like them all mushy, some like them in the bean shape, just make sure they are fully cooked first. - 12/11/2014 1:56:51 PM

    Latest research shows scientists are disappointed in anti-oxidants, they are showing up to not be the "be all and end all" that they were first thought to be. So enjoy those foods, but don't expect them to do miracles, either. - 11/1/2014 2:17:30 PM
