Are You Eating Any of These Foods/Drinks?

This is a list of 51 healthy foods and drinks that came across my desk via an email that I really like. The list was compiled by nutritionist Chris and Kara Mohr - of Mohr Results which is a company that I like. How many of these are on your weekly shopping list? I have put an *asterick* next to the one's I have had this week, before seeing the list.
