Superfoods, no these aren’t foods that have x-ray vision and can fly, of course if you threw one across the room, debatable. Superfoods are types of foods that are nutritionally dense and benefit your body in many ways.These foods are mainly plant based however there are some fish and dairy products.
What I mean by “nutritionally dense” is a food that has a multitude of vitamins in them compared to other foods. For example, Kale is defined as a superfood because of its high nutrient density. It is full of vitamins A, K, E, C, and multiple B vitamins. It is also full of fiber which is great for digestive health and calcium which is great for bone health. My recipes, Deirdre's Kale Smoothie, have a delicious blend of berries and other superfoods, one of which is kale. I also have a blog post, Cook Healthier, Feel Better, in which I mention certain superfoods I used in making some of my recipes like Deirdre's Raw Valentine Smoothie For Two, Deirdre's Vegetarian Vicken Salad, and Deirdre's Buckwheat Soba Noodle Recipe with Dr. Manny Alvarez,the chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Hackensack University Medical Center. Superfoods are definitely something to add to your diet for an overall healthy lifestyle so make sure you get enough!-By Deirdre Imus
