7 Amazing Super Foods You Need to Know About

We keep reading about how important superfoods are to include in your diet. What exactly are superfoods? There is no scientific definition of a superfood but the term usually refers to foods containing high levels of vitamins and minerals that offer many health benefits such as boosting your immune system and natural weight-loss (1)(2). By consuming these superfoods on a regular basis, you are feeding your body large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, fiber, probiotics, and high levels of omega 3 fatty acids. Superfoods also contain few calories, are low in sugar and salt plus have lots of soluble fiber and health-boosting phyto-chemicals (3). Lately, I've been seeking out ways to incorporate them into my daily diet and thought I would share some of my favorites with you. They can all be ordered online or bought directly from Whole Foods or an organic food store. 1. Goji Berries are a legendary Himalayan fruit that in some cultures believe is the secret to 'eternal youth and beauty' (4). These bright orange-red berries resemble skinny raisins (not as sweet) and come from a shrub found in China and Tibet. They are loaded with antioxidants and a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin A and C (5). They also contain 20 minerals and vitamins including zinc, iron, riboflavin (B2), calcium and beta-carotene (6). I like the organic goji berries by Navitas for snacking between meals or adding them to hot oatmeal, granola, cookies, cereals and salads. These little berries contain 1...
