While experts may disagree on the finer points of “good nutrition,” what they all agree on is that superfoods are a notch above other foods in their concentration of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. If these foods can pack an extra ‘punch’ of nutrition, then why not incorporate them in your daily diet?
To help you incorporate superfoods into your diet, here are three amazing superfoods that are easy to find at most stores and, best of all, are absolutely delicious!
Goji Berries are a legendary Himalayan fruit that in some cultures believe is the secret to eternal youth and beauty. While we aren’t quite sure about that particular claim, we do know that these little orange-red berries are loaded with antioxidants and a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin A and C.
Chia seeds are tiny black seeds from the desert plant Salvia hispanica grown natively in South America. The word “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for strength. This superfood contains plenty of antioxidant properties and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber and calcium.
Coconut oil’s unique combination of fatty acids have several positive effects on our overall health including better brain function, increased energy, and weight loss. Coconut oil is great for cooking, and is a healthy alternative to margarine, butter, or vegetable oil.
