LUNCHTIME -- Today's New York Times brings us The 11 Best Foods You Aren’t Eating, super-healthful items (may contain antioxidants!) that "don’t always find their way into our shopping carts."

The top 3 are a bit of a shocker: It seems we're not eating enough beets, cabbage, and swiss chard. Go figure. I bet if they'd dug a little deeper, they'd have been able to add brussels sprouts and refrigerator mold to their list.

But the best, and most Times-worthy item on the list is prunes (or "dried plums" as the Times style-guide has it):

"How to eat: Wrapped in prosciutto and baked."

Thanks, but I prefer mine stuffed with crabmeat and lightly sauteed in aioli, with just a hint of saffron.
