We all have identified with SuperHeroes from our childhood.  From Marvel Comic Books, Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter and anyone else we can identify to make us feel stronger and know that someone is taking care of us.   

What is your favorite SuperFood?

 

Did you know that food has superheroes too?  Superfoods are a naturally superior group of foods. In order to be considered a superfood, they must be nutrient-dense, yet low in calories. Also, they all have a high concentration and variety of:

  • vitamins
  • minerals
  • antioxidants
  • phytonutrients
  • fiber
  • healthy fats
  • quality protein

 

Superfoods come in a range of forms. Some include:

 

Green Superfoods (such as kale, spinach, wheatgrass, and spirulina)
These foods have the highest concentrations of bioavailable vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and healthy bacteria. They help to protect against disease, build immunity, improve digestive health, and build lean muscle. 

 

Fruit Superfoods (such as goji berries, acai, raw cacao, coconut, and noni)
These are especially high in antioxidants that protect the body from free radicals and oxidative stress. In turn, they help to prevent disease and cellular damage. 

 

Herb Superfoods (such as nettle, echinacea, ginseng, and aloe vera)
Herbs provide the body with essential nutrients that it can’t otherwise produce itself. These superfoods are great supplements for vitamin and nutrient deficiencies. Each herb has a different function, but they work in conjunction to rebalance and regulate the body.

 

This superfood-packed recipe serves two. All you need is a blender and a passion for health!
