The 30 Healthiest FoodsDelish
There are so many delicious and nutritious foods out there, and with fresh news constantly surfacing about the latest and greatest superfoods, it can be hard to know what to pick up when you head to the supermarket. But with this list of the healthiest foods out there, you’ll now know exactly where to go in those massive market aisles to grab the foods with the biggest nutritional payoff.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms are full of nutritional benefits, and can make a great stand-in for meat in vegetarian dishes because of their complex, savory flavor and firm texture. Additionally, mushrooms are the only plant source of vitamin D, a nutrient many of us are deficient in, and are also one of the only types of widely available produce that contain significant amounts of selenium, which, according to WebMD, helps prevent cell damage. Many varieties are also thought to have immune-boosting and anti-cancer properties.

 

Barley

Barley is a grain full of fiber. It’s delicious in soups, as a hot breakfast cereal, as a part of a salad studded with vegetables, or even as a stand-in for rice in your favorite risotto recipe. And because it is fiber-rich and more slowly digested by the body than more refined grains, it’s thought to help lower blood pressure and keep blood sugar levels stable. If you’re looking to get the most nutritional bang for your buck, choose hulled barley — it takes longer to cook, but its extra layer of bran means it has even more fiber than other varieties…..
