So as some of you may or may not know, I'm a big Superfoods fan. What is a super food you ask? Its a simple concept that some foods are better than others for your health. The book, SuperFoods, basically presents the Fabulous Fourteen. These foods are nutritional powerhouses that can literally change your life. They are proven to help prevent aging and ward off cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes, hypertension, certain cancers, and even dementia. (Source SuperFoods book). Super foods include broccoli, oranges, spinach, pumpkin, turkey, soy, yogurt, walnuts, wild salmon, tea, beans, tomatoes, whole grains, and my personal favorite:
I eat blueberries daily through out the year. When they're in season, I of course love them fresh. But in the off season, I just buy the big bags of frozen blueberries and eat them like candy!
Lately I've also found another super food that I'm loving:
I've started buying a bag of frozen, dark, pitted cherries. They make for a delicious good for you snack and my super foods book recommends them as an alternative to blueberries. These babies are sweet enough to count as a dessert in my book. And to make them even better, I'll pair them with an once of dark chocolate (also good for you!)
What do ya'll think of super foods?
