Well, here’s the thing: there are many foods on the planet that are both tasty and healthy. So, by filling your plate with quality protein, vegetables, fruits, and other whole foods, you’ll have before you meals that are both versatile and colorful.

Here are 7 super healthy foods. But, of course, most of these foods are incredibly delicious as well.

1. Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is a kind of fermented cabbage. It has immense health benefits. Sauerkraut is believed to have originated over 2,000 years ago in China. Back then, fermentation was a primary method of food preservation (1).

This fermented cabbage survived the test of time and became a well-known condiment and side dish in many cultures. It is most appreciated in Germany, where its name originates.

The health benefits and nutrition offered by sauerkraut are far beyond that provided by fresh cabbage, all due to the fermentation it undergoes.

Sauerkraut is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber (2). It also contains probiotics that enhance the absorption of these nutrients (3, 4), making it more nutritious than coleslaw or raw cabbage.

Other top benefits of sauerkraut include:

· It is high in vitamin C, K2, and U

· It is high in lactic acid

· It contains a lot of phytonutrients

2. Arugula

Arugula is a peppery green with a distinctive taste. It is believed to have originated from the Mediterranean region. Other names by which it is identified include salad rocket, rucola, and Italian cress. Arugula is a member of the Cruciferous or Brassica family. This classification contains cruciferous primarily vegetables, such as kale, sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower.

The popularity of Arugula has much to do with its health benefits as its taste. A particular study (5) cites arugula as having very potent anti-cancer properties.

This green is nutrient-dense and high in phytochemicals and fiber. It is low in calories, sugar, fat, and carbohydrates.
