  • 3 of 9

3. Adzuki Beans

They’re smaller than black beans and reddish brown in color but loaded with nutrients. In fact, these little guys contain some of the highest levels of protein and lowest levels of fat of any variety of beans. They also contain high levels of potassium, fiber, B vitamins, iron, zinc, and manganese. Adzuki beans promote regular bowel movements, are a good source of energy, and help lower cholesterol. Try them out in these Easy, Upscale Nachos.

9 pages? Seriously? Here's the list:

1. Spirulina
2. Hemp Seeds
3. Azuki Beans
4. Kukicha Twig Tea
5. Ghee
6. Fenugreek
7. Grapefruits
8. Jerusalem Artichokes

Honestly, how is someone supposed to be able to even find 90% of those foods?
