Many of the superfoods you are familiar with fall under the nutrient-dense category. See how some of your favorite foods fare on Dr. Fuhrman's index.
Nutrient-dense foods are rich in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants – and are low in calories. This chart helps you identify these satiating foods, essential to weight loss and longevity, by breaking them down by numbers. The higher the score, the more nutrient-dense and healthy the food.
