Super foods: what it is and why it’s needed

Calgary Avansino talks about the benefits of superfoods and why they are fully justifies its name

Despite the fact that the scientific definition of this term does not exist, “super foods” – it really is a brilliant food that deserves the prefix “super”. It has a high nutritional value (mainly fruits and vegetables as well as fish, nuts and grains) and major nutrients and antioxidants that reduce damage caused by free radicals in our body cells.

In addition, these substances help to cope with ailments, slow the aging process, contribute to the loss of excess weight. Superfoods should be used daily. For your convenience, I will divide them into 4 main groups: the “dark berry”, “dark green”, “healthy cereals” and “good fats.”

Breakfast – a great opportunity to include in the diet superfoods; add goji berries, blueberries and acai all dishes, from smoothies and muffins to yogurt and cereals.You can buy them in any form: fresh, dried or crushed. The next item on your list – “dark green.” Suitable kale, chard, spinach, broccoli and romaine lettuce. The greens can be eaten raw and added to salads, stew or steamed from its frequent use in the food you get tangible benefits.

Followed by the category of “good fats.” Most saturated fat is really very bad, but unsaturated and monounsaturated fats found in nuts, seeds, coconuts and avocados, are very helpful and their calorie can not be afraid.

And finally, the final category – “useful cereals” gluten-free – it’s quinoa, amaranth, millet and buckwheat. They help the body to stock up on energy, without overloading it.
