Top 60 Nutrient Dense Foods

How Many of the 'ANDI' List are in your Fridge?

There are no shortage of opinions for what foods are healthy and what are not.

But we really like the simple & short ANDI list - an abbreviation for 'Aggregate Nutrient Density Index'.
It really is an easy way to see how healthy and nutrient dense a food is.

The foods on this list are your typical foods you see everyday in the supermarket and we encourage you to try to eat foods that are higher up on the list.

This scoring system rates foods on a scale from 1 to 1000 based on nutrient content. ANDI scores are calculated by evaluating an extensive range of micronutrients, including vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidant capacities.

Visit the links below for your handy pocket guide you can use as a reference when shopping and planning your meals.

Future newsletters will include simple recipes for how to use some of nutrient dense foods.

Tips for your Best Bolder Boulder

Let Cross-Training be your Secret Weapon

Now that it is spring and a few weeks from the Bolder Boulder, you can see so many more people out running the trails and roads.

As glorious as running can be, it is not something you want to do day in and day out 7 days a week.

Studies have shown repeatedly that for overall health, injury prevention and balanced muscle and strength, cross-training for runners is essential.

Still, according to a recent runnersworld. com poll, 35 percent of runners never ride a bike, swim laps, or lift weights.

We have included an article in Runner's World that shed light on the benefits of cross-training and how to cross-train properly.

Cross-training makes you a stronger, healthier runner—as long as you do it right
