Your Daily Dose of Superfoods
We’ve all heard the buzz about superfoods—foods that can single handedly raise us from the dark depths of junk food into the glorious light of health consciousness. But what exactly is a superfood? What do they do? And where on earth can you find these extraordinary things?
It’s important to note that superfoods don’t have superhero powers and the best way to attain the highest level of holistic health is through a good ol’ balanced diet and lifestyle, but seeking out nutritionally-rich foods is undoubtedly a step in the right direction for better health and a better you. Superfoods are foods that have unusually high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that make it easier and more efficient to fill up on the healthy things our bodies need.
Adding superfoods into a balanced diet may increase your overall health with bonuses like increased energy, weight loss and improved mood. The best part is we’re lucky enough to live in a region that’s rich with these types of foods—walk into our stores and you’re surrounded by alive and vibrant whole foods loaded with nutrients. Take your health up a notch with these elite foods:
