A Table of High-Nutrient Foods

Dr. Fuhrman's book Cholesterol Protection For Life has a table of foods with the highest nutrient-densities. One aspect of the diet he recommends (and explains at more length in his books) is to eat primarily the natural foods in the table that contain high nutrient levels, while eating less of everything else that is not on the list.

Some Nutrient-Rich Foods
Green Vegetableskale, swiss chard, broccoli, artichokes, string beans, asparagus, spinach, cabbage, lettuce, and peas
Yellow/Orange Vegetablescarrots, butternut squash, sweet potato, and corn
Beans/Legumeschick peas, red kidney beans, lentils, and adzuki beans
Fresh Fruitsblueberries, strawberries, kiwis, apples, oranges, grapes, pears, pineapple, and bananas
Non-Starchy Vegetableseggplant, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, and onions
Raw Nuts and Seedsfilberts, almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, walnuts, cashews, pecans and flax seed

I am on a mostly high hutrient diet... however, I have RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME and it does not seem to help at all... I am contemplating taking a drug named Miraplex, which is actually a Parkenson's Disease medication, also for restless leg syndrome...
