Hitting that sweet spot with your healthy diet can be hard. In 2015, PLoS ONE published a study that came up with an unconventional way to rank foods according to their “nutritional fitness”. They grouped foods together in combinations that meet our daily nutrient requirements with the smallest number of foods possible. The foods that were included in the most combinations were ranked as having the most “nutritional fitness”. Find out how to incorporate these top 10 foods into your diet.
