    I guess I am also in taking your power foods. I am a fond admirer of the berries, I just love them to the core. Yogurt is my another favorite food element. I usually have oat meal as my breakfast, and it keeps me fit and energetic. Thanks for the list, I will try to incorporate more food items from your list.
