Health magazine's panel of panels recently came up with the top 10 healthy superfoods for women. Laurie Herr from Health magazine discusses the foods that range from sweet fruits to hardy, heart-friendly nuts. I listed the top 4 and matched them with great, tasty recipes from The Herb Companion magazine to help you weave these healthful foods into your everyday meals.

Wild Alaskan Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA, which is important for pregnant women. The omega-3 fatty acids may also help fight depression and certain cancers. Try out these recipes with fresh salmon.
