Super foods may not have a big load of scientific standing but they are good for you based on the properties and nutritional values they have. Dietitians and nutritionists do not deny that!
Fatty fish like salmon, mackerel types and sardines are rich in essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 3. Dark colored vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli and Brussels sprouts are full of vitamins and minerals. Fruits are a rich source of fibers and vitamins. Legumes like beans and nuts are a good source of protein and so are meats.
I believe in the health properties of all these ingredients, in addition they give me a load of inspiration.
Buying super foods
Organic produced super foods are your best choice. Unfortunately that is not within every ones reach. Buying goods from small farmers selling their produce on their own premises and at local farmers markets is a good choice as well. These farmers know what they are doing and are health food advocates themselves.
When stored correctly, most of the small farmers produce last much longer than mass produced products that have been stored and transported over a considerable period of time, losing a fair share of their shelf life and nutrients in the process.
