List of 25 includes 12 foods featured at VitalChoice.com… wild salmon included; “O” editors provide rationales and recipes for each pick
by Craig Weatherby


We've always been pretty selective about the foods we choose to sell.

Health, culinary quality, and sustainability constitute our top criteria... and health comes first.

This is why, from wild salmon and sardines to berries, tea, nuts, and dark chocolate, Vital Choice foods keep showing up on lists of “superfoods”... either named by brand, or generically.

For example, we offer many foods selected as super-healthful in bestsellers by Nicholas Perricone, M.D., Stephen Pratt, M.D., and Jonny Bowden, Ph.D. (See “Vital Choice fare picked by expert authors” below)

Now we can add Oprah Winfrey’s “O” magazine to the roster of respected recommenders, after 12 of our foods were included in a feature article in the January, 2010 issue, titled “
25 Superfoods to Incorporate Into Your Diet Now.

12 Vital Choice foods appear on O magazine’s super list
This isn’t the first time that foods we feature were deemed super in the Oprah Winfrey domain.

Back in 2005, we reported that Oprah’s favored medical guests – including Mehmet Oz, host of the new Dr. Oz show – recommended wild salmon (see “
Oprah and Expert Guests Endorse Wild Salmon”).

For their January, 2010 issue, the editors of “O” magazine offer up a list of super-foods that can improve your diet for the New Year and beyond.

As they wrote, “…what if you didn't have to choose between good food and good-for-you food because they were one and the same? Here, you'll find a short list of foods that you really ought to incorporate into your diet—because, frankly, their health benefits are through the roof.”

Here’s the full list of 25 Superfoods, starting with the 12 that we offer… with links to the foods in the Vital Choice online store and to the recipes that accompanied each food.
