You have probably heard or seen the term “Superfoods” at least once before, but have you ever asked yourself what that really means? Well “superfoods” is the term used to tell us that a specific food is nutrient-rich considered to be especially beneficial for health and well being. They are mostly plant-based but they also include some fish and dairy. These magical foods contain health-promoting properties such as reducing risk of disease or improving any aspect of physical or emotional health. They may have an unusually high content of antioxidants, vitamins or other nutrients. This does not mean we should only be eating something if that is a superfood, it just means we should be including these beauties more often on our daily diet. It does not matter if you know which ones they are and it really does not matter, as soon as you start eating a healthier diet including more vegetables, legumes, fruits and whole grains you will automatically be eating more superfoods as well and your body will thank you very much.
