For a great source on the most nutritious foods commonly available (at least to those of us in the US), I can think of no better than The World’s Healthiest Foods. George Mateljan and the George Mateljan Foundation have put together a great database of these foods, explanations of why each is so nutritious, and recipes for most (if not all) of them. http://whfoods.org/
I also recommend the Linus Pauling Institute website – a micronutrient research facility at Oregon State University that has published lots of information on the many vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and more. They detail research on each nutrient with its effect on human health, major food sources, and recommended levels of intake. Read enough on this site and you will know why taking man-made supplements will not come close to covering all that your body craves. http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/
A resource similar to the USDA database is Canada’s nutrition database at Health Canada.
Weston A. Price Foundation, a nonprofit, tax-exempt nutrition education foundation. Again, I’m not sure about some of their conclusions, but I do think that a great deal of what they have to say about the connection between food and health is true. There are some major differences of opinion between them and Dr. Fuhrman (from the site above), and I tend to believe that the truth lies somewhere between the two.
