Health foods: Almonds make the list
Give your diet a healthy boost with these 10 health foods. They’re among your best bets for eating well because they meet at least three of the following criteria:

Good or excellent source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients
High in phytonutrients and antioxidant compounds, such as vitamins A and E and beta carotene
May help reduce risk of heart disease and other health conditions
Readily available

As an example, almonds are packed with nutrients — fiber, riboflavin, magnesium, iron and calcium. A 1-ounce portion also provides over 30 percent of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of vitamin E. And most of the fat in almonds is monounsaturated fat — a healthier type of fat that may help lower blood cholesterol levels.
