    I forgot the thing that's always in my fridge.

    Red and white cabbage, and onion all finely shredded on my trusty mandolin. A handful of that goes a long way.

    Depends on your definition of 'Superfoods' really if by superfoods you mean foods that allow me to eat a normal healthy diet rather than foods I like then my top superfoods would be:

    Basmati Rice
    Wholegrain Bread
    Burgen Bread
    New Potatoes boiled in their skins
    Red Wine

    :)

    Peppermint Tea - I like the peppermint tea benefits I gain from this with lime juice
    Almonds - for good fats, alkalinity, and energy
    Cucumbers - refreshing
    Basmati rice - carbohydrates
    Fish - fish for protein or some other seafood as a superfood because of the omega fats
