Superfoods: Nutrient Powerhouses

superfood heartSuperfood {soo-per food}: A real, minimally processed food that is rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Superfoods are nutrient dense, which means they contain good sources of multiple nutrients for minimal calories.
Brightly colored fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, and aromatic and brightly colored herbs and spices are all considered superfoods.
Superfoods slow the aging process, and fight against and prevent diabetes, obesity, wrinkles, and degenerative diseases. They regulate metabolism, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and protect against heart disease and cancer. Superfoods protect organs from toxins and promote digestive health. They do all these things by fighting oxidation, inflammation and toxins.
Eating a variety of superfoods will help you maintain weight, fight disease and live longer. They can also put you in a better mood!

Remember that no food, no matter how “super” can stand alone or replace a well-rounded healthy diet.

“Fifty to seventy percent of suffering could be eliminated by what people eat and how they move.”~ Nutritionist Elizabeth Somer
