What is a “Super Food?”

First of all, it is important for everyone to know that super foods are easy to find in your local supermarket. They’re worth looking for!

These nutritional powerhouse foods are loaded with nutrients crucial to a healthy, long life.

If you can include a variety of them in your diet, everyday, they will make positive changes your life!

These foods* were chosen because they contain high concentrations of crucial nutrients, and of course many of them are low in calories. Foods containing these nutrients have been proven to help prevent and, in some cases, reverse the well-known effects of aging, cardiovascular disease, Type II Diabetes, hypertension and certain cancers.

When you click on each Super Food you’ll find information including a list of the primary nutrients that elevated them to Super Food status.

This is not meant to be a complete list of every single nutrient that each food contains, but rather, a list of the high-profile nutrients that have shown health benefits and that are present in that food in sufficient quantity to make a difference. Many of the Super Foods have “Sidekicks.” These are foods that are generally in the same category as the flagship Super Food and offer a similar nutrient profile.

So go ahead and Google each one and find recipes and tips on how to incorporate these foods in your daily diet.
