Grocery store shelves and website search engines groan under the weight of "superfoods" guaranteed to help you weight less, ache less, and generally perk up. From Food Guys Jon and Greg, here's a list of real superfoods, lurking in un-hyped peripheries of supermarkets and farmers' market tables. They're rich in bioavaiable forms of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids.

Wild-caught Alaska salmon.


Sprouts and microgreens, like broccoli sprouts.



Coconut oil.

Fermented cabbage, as sauerkraut or kimchee.

Orgranic, pastured eggs.

Berries of all sorts.


Kefir, or unflavored, unsweetened, 2% milkfat yogurt.

Grass-fed beef and liver.

Grass-fed raw butter.

Mushrooms of all kinds.

Young kale.
