Superfoods – Beyond Blueberries
The University of Chicago came up with 10 new highly nutritious foods to enrich your diet with for better health and to give you a little variety from the usual superfood lists if you follow such things. (I do, to some extent.) According to Mary Russell, director of nutrition services at the university’s hospital, you should try eating more dandelion greens and dried plums, among others.
Happily, pumpkin makes the list. I love pumpkin.
My initial impression after reading the article, though, is to wonder whether the California Prune Board’s marketing campaign to rebrand prunes as *dried plums* actually sold more of them. It also occurred to me, as I wrote this, that I’ve never actually bought prunes/dried plums, no matter what they’re called. Apparently, they have twice as much potassium as banans, so maybe now’s a good time to start.
