While it is really alright and a easy to pack the lunch box, I wonder how one can eat the same thing for that long!

What Are the Healthiest Foods You Can Eat? List of Super Foods Coined in the late 1990s, the term 'superfood' is commonly used by food bloggers and journalists to refer to berries, fruits, vegetables and other foods with proven health benefits and/or exceptionally high nutritional value. However, there is no scientific definition of what constitutes a superfood. This means that any superfood list is, at its best, a subjective selection of some the world's most nutrient-dense foods. Some widely recognized superfoods include pomegranates, kale, cranberries, aronia berries, maqui berries, Concord grapes, matcha green tea powder, garlic and turmeric root. HealWithFood.org's List of Top Superfoods (see below) includes all of the above listed nutritional goodies, plus a whole bunch of other ancient and new super-nutritious foods. The purpose of this page is to make you familiar with some of the world's healthiest foods and to inspire you to expand your culinary horizons by incorporating some less well known nutritional heavyweights into your diet.
