This source is not for meat, fruit, (although bananas & watermelon are included
for comparative purposes), grains, or other foods. It is all about the wonders
of vegetables, plus a couple of seeds, and kelp! These pages can aid you in
choosing the foods that you would like to eat, and let you know how
your favorite foods stack up!
Unfortunately, I copied these numbers down over 30 years ago, from a
great book, for my own use, and I never wrote in the serving sizes!
However, what I do know is that all things are equal, so whether
it's a tablespoon, or 1/2 cup, if the # is higher, then that food
has more of whatever-it-is in it! It's interesting to see, for example, that
watermelon and avocadoes have more potassium in them than bananas,
and that kelp and sunflower seeds are more iron filled than some legumes!
I'm not an expert, and there could have been a flaw in my original
source, plus I know that new things are being discovered every day.
Even the way that we learn about food values has changed
since I copied these numbers down. So, these aren't the be all, end all.
Just use them as a guide, and then further research what you find interesting.
Or, just use these as a guide to let you know which foods have the most
of each nutrient that you are interested in.
Enjoy, & Healthy, Happy Eating! :)
