Some health foods less than healthy


The Center for Science in the Public Interest says granola is among the most over-rated foods because it is often packed with sugar and calories.

The same goes for smoothies and energy bars.

Vegetable juices are high in salt and pita chips are no healthier than tortilla chips.

The Center's list of underrated foods include sunflower seeds, which are full of nutrients, leafy greens, garbanzo beans, plain non-fat yogurt, including the Greek version, and watermelon, which is full of vitamins.
