We have all heard of super foods, but what are they and why do we need them?
A super food is a nutrient rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well being. They have an unusually high content of antioxidants, vitamins, and other nutrients. Some of them are:
- Tea (black and green)
These foods are thought to have cancer fighting and anti-aging affects, as well as aid in weight loss. You should choose organic food as much as possible. Also, choose wild caught fish over farm raised, when possible. I know many people may not enjoy some of these foods, but find some different ways to prepare them, that you may like. When selecting a yogurt, choose all natural and watch your sugars. I have seen yogurts with almost 20g of sugar, which is craziness! I am also not a fan of artificial sweeteners, so you could buy an all natural, unsweetened yogurt and sweeten it with real fruit and stevia or truvia. They are all natural sugar substitutes.
