Superfoods mainly consist of organic vegetables and fruits that are rich in vitamins A, C, K, E, B vitamins, calcium, fiber, folate and antioxidants. Besides these, other foods like yogurt, salmon, and barley also come under this category.
As we proceed through this book, we will also be discussing about some surprising superfoods that we usually consider as “not so healthy” but they actually contain several health benefits not known widely to man.
According to World’s Healthiest Foods, berries, goji berries specifically are known to be the best kind of fruit because they contain high amounts of disease-fighting antioxidants.
As different vegetables and frits contain different varieties of vitamins and minerals, dieticians and nutritional experts recommend that you consume varieties of foods to get all the nutrition required.
Many people tend to adapt an “all or nothing” attitude to nutrition however this is not the right thing to do. The key is to eat a balanced amount of as many superfoods as you can in your daily diet.
We would recommend that you try consuming at least three servings of fruits and vegetables every day, one serving of yogurt daily, and at least two servings of fish in a week.
