Have you been hearing the term superfood being tossed around lately? By now you’d have to be living under a rock to not have heard of the superfood quinoa. Probably one of the most popular superfoods out there, but there are many that grow in your own back yard.
So what is a “superfood”? No, it’s not a carrot dressed in a red and blue spandex suit with a big S on the front (feel free to use that as your geeky foodie Halloween costume by the way). It’s better than that! Hard to believe anything could be better than that, I know. Superfood’s are simply foods that have an exceptionally high nutrient density, including phytochemicals and antioxidants.
Some superfoods you may be familiar with are North American berries, like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Parsley and oregano along with other herbs are known superfoods, as are sprouts and leafy greens and the ever so common flax seed!
