What, exactly, is a superfood?

In nutrition circles, superfoods are defined as a class of foods that are the most nutrient dense and best health promoting foods found in nature.

These tremendously beneficial foods are exceptionally high in a wide range of important micronutrients including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals (phytonutrients).

Generally, in order to be classified as a superfood, a particular food must have at least twelve or more unique health benefiting properties.

Many "common" superfoods can be found in the produce department of most supermarkets or, better yet, at a local farmer's market.  These "common" superfoods include:

✿ Broccoli
✿ Brussels Sprouts
✿ Kale

Less common, "exotic" superfoods can generally be found at specialty health and natural food stores and include:

✿ Acai Berry
✿ Chlorella
✿ Spirulina

Naturally, it is always best to purchase organic, locally or sustainably grown produce whenever possible.
