* Shiitake mushrooms
* Fish and seafood
* Meat and poultry
* Whole grain cereals

Step 1: Eat Brazil nuts
Eat Brazil nuts, the food source containing the most selenium. One ounce may contain 544 micrograms of selenium – 780 percent of the recommended daily value. Not far behind are delicious macadamia nuts.
**Eat Brazil nuts only occasionally, as their unusually high levels of selenium could lead to toxic levels.
Step 2: Enjoy shiitakes
Enjoy shiitake mushrooms, which are one of the only non-animal sources of vitamin B12 and vitamin D as well as selenium.
Step 3: Have seafood
Have fish and seafood high in selenium, including tuna, swordfish, halibut, salmon, cod, herring, lobster, crab, oysters, and mollusks.
Step 4: Eat meat
Eat meat. Nearly all animal products, including pork, turkey, chicken, beef, and lamb, contain a significant amount of selenium.
Eggs are a good alternative source for people who are lacto-ovo vegetarians.
Step 5: Eat whole grains
Eat whole grain cereals, whole wheat bread, and brown rice, which are among the best sources of selenium.
