Importance of Superfoods

'LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE, LET MEDICINE BY THY FOOD'

Hippocrates

The food and drink we put in our body is just like the fuel you put in your car, if it’s bad quality it will run poorly or maybe breakdown, if it’s good or even better super fuel you will run like a supersonic jet!

Superfoods are a must have for a healthy diet.

What is a superfood? Here’s a simple definition- a superfood is a nutrient rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being. (oxford dictionary)

The actually term superfoods in my opinion is relatively ambitious, so try not to get too caught up over what is and what is not a ‘superfood’. Here’s some examples- broccoli, garlic and turmeric are considered to be superfoods, doughnuts, cakes and biscuits are not. But, here’s a thought, what about a dark chocolate and chilli biscuit?

‘Superfood’ or not, making sure that kitchen is full of real foods; unprocessed, whole, ideally organic and locally grown foods is a great way to support and improve health and quality of life.
