Some of these health foods may even be foods that you're eating right now!

1. Parsley

Parsley is one of those health foods that is typically used as a garnish, but it's actually one of the unique herbs that provide a ton of health benefits.

Parsley contains all kinds of antioxidants and has been shown to actually inhibit tumor formation, which lowers your chances of getting cancer!

Also, parsley tastes friggin' delicious!

2. Chia Seeds

I actually had no idea what chia seeds were before this post.

They aren't something that I've ever eaten and I regret it!2

These little seeds are health foods that taste great and are all-natural energy uppers!

These little seeds will lower your blood pressure, give you a ton of energy and can actually help keep your skin clear too!

Just a sprinkle of these little seeds on your salad, in a sauce or even in a stew makes all of the difference.

3. Raw Cacao

If you like chocolate, this is one of the health foods for you!

Raw cacao is actually the number one antioxidant food in the world!

You can actually find raw cacao in powder form so that you can put it in all sorts of drinks or even make hot cocoa out of it.

4. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate has been huge in recent years, with all of the studies that have been done on it, you know that it's totally a superfood.

Did you know that dark chocolate only contains about 6 grams of sugar and about 80% of it is pure raw cacao?

That's why it's so good for you and a healthy way to get your chocolate fix in!
