 Let's Talk About Some Super Foods

Introduction

When I first heard the term "superfood," it sounded like a made-up word that would soon join the ranks of other popular foodie terms, like "locavore" and "farm-to-table." But the people who coined this term did so for a reason; superfoods are packed with ingredients that promote health, boost energy levels, and nourish your body. Some of them have been around for centuries. Others were recently heralded into existence by the media or public personalities. Read on to learn about some of my favorite superfoods—and don't be afraid to try one yourself!

Raw Honey

Raw Honey is defined as the honey that has not been heated above 45 degrees Celsius, which is the temperature at which enzymes are killed.

Raw honey contains many health benefits because of its properties:

  • high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals

  • helps with allergies and asthma problems by strengthening the immune system. If you have seasonal allergies, it’s best to consume local raw honey as this may help alleviate symptoms associated with pollen exposure.

  • contains natural preservatives (like hydrogen peroxide) that protect it from spoiling

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a superfood that you've probably heard of before, but what are they exactly? Chia seeds should be a part of your diet because they're high in protein, omega-3s, fiber and antioxidants. The only thing that makes them better is when you add them to water or juice!

Here's why you should start eating chia seeds:

Chia Seeds

  • They're a good source of calcium: 1/4 cup of chia seeds contains around 60 mg of calcium. That's almost 20% of what the average adult woman needs in one day! They also contain phosphorus which helps build strong bones and teeth.

  • They contain lots of iron: Iron is an important component for blood cell development so it's important to eat foods rich in this mineral regularly (especially if you're pregnant). A mere 1/4 cup serving has 4 mg -- 10% DV (Daily Value).

  • They're high in protein: Compared to most other foods out there today chia seeds have 3 g per serving which makes them perfect for vegetarians looking for plant-based options as well as vegans looking for alternatives that do not include meat products such as eggs or dairy products like milk

cacao seeds

Cacao

Cacao is a superfood because it is rich in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. It's also high in fiber, which helps to keep your digestive system healthy. And of course cacao is a good source of magnesium, which is essential for your body's energy production.

Cacao has been shown to reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure. These benefits are due to its ability to inhibit an enzyme called phospholipase A2 (PLA2) that causes inflammation.

Miso Soup

  • Miso paste is a fermented soybean paste.

    Miso Soup

  • It is a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals.

  • The fermentation process breaks down phytic acid, releasing the bound-up minerals. The calcium in miso is easier for your body to absorb than that in dairy products or other high-calcium foods.

  • Soybeans are also rich in phytochemicals called saponins that help lower bad cholesterol levels, prevent blood clots, lower blood pressure and protect against cancer cells (4).

There are a lot of superfoods out there, and it's important to know what they do and how they benefit you.

Superfoods aren't necessarily the most expensive foods in the world. In fact, some of them are actually pretty cheap! If you're looking for affordable ways to add more nutrients into your diet (and save money at the same time), superfoods may be just what you need.

Superfoods aren't necessarily exotic fare either—think spinach, broccoli, tomatoes...you've probably already eaten some superfoods! And if not? Why not start today?

Conclusion

This list is just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many foods out there that can help you achieve your goals, whether it be weight loss or increased energy. You should always do your research before trying anything new so you know what you're getting into and how it will affect your body.
