Healthy Food | The 15 Healthiest Foods that Also Taste Good

The 15 Healthiest Foods that Also Taste Good

#1 Sweet Potatos
Sweet potatoes are a nice alternative to regular potatoes. They're loaded with beta carotene that can help keep your immune system in overdrive.

#2 Oranges
A single orange gives you all the vitamin C that you need for a whole day. It also has a lot of bioflavanoids and fiber that will keep you healthy.

#3 Garlic
Garlic adds flavor to just about any dish. Luckily, it can help people keep their blood pressure and cholesterol levels in check.

#4 Mushrooms
Mushrooms are low in calories, plus they have vitamins C, D, B6, and B12.

#5 Potatoes
Potatoes contain more potassium than bananas. Just don't deep dry them or drown them in butter. They're healthiest when baked.

#6 Olive Oil
You don't have to give up flavor to become healthier. Olive oil contains monounsaturated fatty acids, which is actually quite healthy when eaten in moderation.

#7 Beer
Beer is loaded with antioxidants and can actually help you hydrate better than water. Unfortunately, the health benefits start to fall quickly after your second one, so drink in moderation!

#8 Tomatoes
Known for its lycopene, the tomato is thought to be good for the heart, and preventative for certain cancers.

#9 Almonds
Another super-food, almonds have Vitamin E, good fat, and lots of other minerals and vitamins.

#10 Beans
Besides making you more musical, these friendly legumes have a crazy amount of soluable fiber and protein.

#11 Spinach
One of nature's "super foods", and loaded with calcium, iron, and Vitamin A. Throw it into every salad and sandwich you eat.

#12 Blueberries
Packed with antioxidants and phytochemicals (stuff that fights cancer), and a long list of micronutrients.

#13 Avocado
Tons of fiber, and lots of "good fats" that lower cholesterol.

#14 Quinoa
This lesser-known grain is a complete protein as well as high in fiber. It was a main staple of South America for centuries.

#15 Salmon
Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which make it good for your heart and your brain. Salmon is considered a "gold standard" for clean meat-based protein, with "good fats", and low in cholesterol.
