Each month at HuffPost Healthy Living, we compile lists of the most in-season, fresh superfoods -- this June, for instance, we celebrated figs, zucchini and apricots, among others. But these monthly articles got us thinking -- what are some of the healthiest foods generally, despite the season?

And so we turned to some of our favorite medical and nutritional experts to come up with this list of 50 of the healthiest foods, presented alphabetically. Pad your grocery list with these and you'll be on your way to a healthier, more vibrant diet. Of course, even as we editors finished the list, we started thinking of more ("How could carrots not be on the list?" "What about black pepper?"). So we plan to follow up with a second list of healthy foods. Let us know in the comments which of your favorites we skipped and they could appear soon.

Read on, but first -- meet our expert panel:
