Superfoods. What's in a name?
The term 'superfood' is nebulous at best, but the idea is that certain foods have higher amounts of key nutrients that are often missing in the modern diet such as omega-3 fats, and magnesium. However many of these novel foods have nutrients that go beyond the role of basic vitamins and minerals that science is now demonstrating to have health promoting properties: phyto-chemicals [phyto meaning plant]. It is these characteristics that are earning these foods the title 'superfoods' - in a nutshell, it's all about nutritional density and quality.
Most of these foods have been used throughout the world for centuries but are just being discovered by the Western world. The easiest way to incorporate the following four products is to add them to smoothies/protein shakes, yogurt, 100% fruit or vegetable juice, applesauce, or stirred into hot cereals. For those who who struggle to eat enough fruits and vegetables, these products will add a lot of plant food nutrition for only about 20 kcals per teaspoon. For anyone who already gets plenty of fruits and vegetables, these foods will take the quality of your diet to the next level. For more recipe ideas, visit Navitas' website.
