Superfoods are Hiding in Your Fridge

The easiest and most straightforward way of giving yourself energy, preserving

your body and losing weight is probably available at your neighborhood food store,

or it might even be buried in your kitchen. Don't be alarmed, be excited. Superfoods

have long been the highlight of any discussion about health or healthy food. Many

celebrity chef have dedicated cooking books to them. Many health experts from

around the world have been advocating for the incorporation of superfoods into our

diets, and some say that merely adding a few of them to your daily menu is enough

to provide your wellbeing with an instant boost.

What is there in superfoods that makes them so desirable?

• High levels of essential nutritional elements (like protein, minerals,

vitamins, essential fatty acids and more).

• Very high doses of antioxidants.

• They are easily absorbed and digested.

• They are beneficial to every body system.

• Beauty enhancing: for a glowing skin, shiny hair and sparkling eyes.

• Improve body and soul balance.

Between Yams and Acai Berries

Some of these superfoods are rightly considered exotic, and are only available in

health food stores. Among these, you can find acai berries (that come from the

Amazon rain forests), goji berries (another rare fruit), Spirulina (a miracle working

seaweed) and others. The good news is that most of the superfoods are far more

accessible than we thought, and as a matter of fact, they are already available at

our house. Despite the fact, that some of these healthy foods are underneath our

noses, we do not consume them on a regular basis. That is unfortunate.

Among the superfoods, you can find at the nearest market or supermarket you can

find: legumes, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, blueberries, strawberries, quinoa,

salmon, dark chocolate (with more than 70% cacao), and many green leaves – the

greener they are, the healthier they are. For this reason, kale has become the

object of such legendary tales, that have turned it into the unofficial king of

superfoods. Spinach, Mangold and Bok choy are high on this list as well.

Changing to a Healthier Diet, Easily

Apparently, turning to a superfood-rich diet is super simple, and super healthy:

replacing processed foods or less healthy foods by superfoods, will not only grant

our body important nutritional values, but will also provide energy and assistance to

the different body systems. Some of them even boost the discharge of mood-

improving hormones.

Know Your Superfood

Consuming superfoods as part of your daily menu not only necessitates a

recognition in their importance, but also learning about the different kinds of

superfoods, their values and the optimal ways to make them.

It is also recommended to test a variety of superfoods to see which one of them is

having the best effect on you.

You can find many recipes throughout the web that concentrate on superfoods, and

much more information on the nutritional values of specific superfoods you're

interested in. The only thing left for you to do is get informed, find your favorite

superfood recipe and start cooking!
