Food and Drink...Healthiest Vegetables You Can Eat

Food list created by Dj Levels Avatar

Eat more watercress! It tops the list of healthiest vegetables and fruits in a recent study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Scientists believe eating “powerhouse” produce has the potential to reduce your risk of chronic diseases. Powerhouse fruits and vegetables (PFVs) are loosely defined as “green leafy, yellow/orange, citrus, and cruciferous items,” but until recently, a defined method for identifying a specific produce item as “powerhouse” didn’t exist. Dr. Jennifer Di Noia did some research to address this gap, defining a formula to calculate a vegetable’s or fruit’s nutritional strength and using that number to create a list of 41 PFVs in order of their healthful benefits.

In general, green leafy and cruciferous vegetables landed in the top half of the list while foods classified as yellow/orange, allium, citrus, and berry were concentrated in the bottom half.
