Have you ever been talking to a health nut, and they throw around the term “Super Food?” While your imagination might run wild wondering what a super food actually is, do you really know what they’re referring to? Better yet, does anybody? To help out, we did a little research, and came up with the simplest description possible. Here’s it is:
Super Food: A food that is low in calories, but high in nutrients.
The perks of a Super Food: Basically, a super food allows your body to get the most bang for its buck. If you’re trying to lose weight, super foods give you the flexibility to consume less in calories, but still get all the nutrition you need to function at your best. And, most super foods are full of fiber, vitamins, and nutrients which is great for your digestive, heart, and cognitive health.
Example of Super Foods:
Broccoli: Broccoli is full of Vitamins A, K, and C. In fact, broccoli packs more of a Vitamin C punch than oranges! What’s great about broccoli is that it’s a very filling vegetable, so if you’re looking for weight loss, get some broccoli in your diet.
Quinoa: Hard to spell, great to eat. If you’re looking for a grain that has protein, fiber, and iron, Quinoa is your answer. It’s also a healthier substitute for rice, and it will take on almost any flavor you add to it.
Do you have any other must try super foods? If you do, we’d love to hear about them.
