There are many actually… There are many food items that are super healthy and yet they remain quite underrated and underappreciated.
Dates for instance. They are packed with vitamin A, potassium, iron and other important nutrients. And yet I don't see many people eating them.

Shrimps are other food items that are rich in important nutrients, including protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and Vitamin B12. In addition, they also carry very fewer calories. And yet they usually get overlooked by many in the crowd of other seafood like salmon, oysters, and trout.

I am sure, there are many other super healthy foods that fail to make in so many lists that we read about diet and health.
If you're going into some kind of diet, don’t just read a few articles on Google and plan your meals.
Do a bit more research. If possible, talk to a professional dietician or nutritionist before planning your diet.
The key is knowing what fitness/health goals you're chasing. Once you know that, you can devise your food chart. Identify the nutrients in each food and then weigh in your goals to choose which super healthy food is most appropriate and for what time.
Hope this answers your question.
