Nutrition plays a huge role in both how we look and how we feel. We’ve all heard the phrase, “you’re only as old as you feel”. While exercise, rest and strong relationships also play a role, nutrition is an easy way to add extra “feel good” to our day-to-day lives.
What is a Superfood?
A quick search on the Internet provides a variety of definitions. Basically, a super food is a food with a high nutrient or phytochemical content. They are nutrient dense foods, often packed with rejuvenating anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids and more.
There is no “legal” or binding definition for a superfood, which has led to some companies and products using the term in a misleading fashion.
Popular superfoods include:
• Sweet Potatoes
We’ll be taking a closer look at these nutrient-dense foods in future blog posts, starting with the anti-oxidant rich berry family.
