I have a love/hate relationship with “superfoods.” What I love about them is that they’re multi-taskers—brimming with various disease-fighting nutrients, usually without providing too many calories, and delivered in a delicious form (think: blueberries).

What I dislike is that some foods deemed “super” are exotic (ahem, the goji berry?!) or something—like, say, sardines—that you’d only have once in a while. Healthy? Yes. Would you eat them every day? Probably not.

With all the other healthy-eating recommendations we need to remember (eat fish twice a week; replace half your grains with whole grains), I don’t want to have to remember a list of eat-this-once-a-week or once-a-month foods.

So, I’m keeping it simple: here are 10 easy-to-eat, easy-to-find, everyday “super” foods.

What’s the most ridiculous superfood you've heard of?
