What is a Super Food?

In layman’s terms, a Super Food is a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.

Functional food or medicinal food is any healthy food claimed to have a health-promoting or disease-preventing property beyond the basic function of supplying nutrients, hence the name “Super Foods”.

Here’s a question for you…How much of these foods are apart of your diet?

I have this chart stuck up in my kitchen so I’m always reminded of what I should be eating on a daily basis.

Tell me, can you see any fizzy drinks, burgers, sweets, chocolates, crisp, chips or any high sugary snacks on this list..No? Now, I wonder why that is…

Think about what you put in your body as you are what you eat.

      Thank you for commenting Ani, hope you find the list of some use 🙂 Mother nature has provided a lot for us. I think even if some of the foods aren’t necessarily considered “Super” at least you know you are getting some sort of health benefit.
