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).

• 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.
