There has been a lot of talk of late about so-called superfoods, but how does that translate to your kitchen? These superfood recipes are the answer!
Superfoods get their famed reputation from being recognized as rich in the nutrients and compounds generally considered beneficial for one's health.
When we talk about superfoods, typically you're looking at foods that are plentiful in antioxidants, fiber, fatty acids or some combination of all.
Dark leafy greens (kale, spinach and collard greens among them) and berries (like blueberries, strawberries and blackberries) almost always top the list of superfoods you should consider adding to your diet.
Other plant-based ingredients like soy, nuts, green tea, turmeric, ginger, beans, lentils, garlic and avocado are also widely categorized as superfoods.
Salmon, dark chocolate, and kefir, which is made of fermented milk and is rich in probiotics, are likewise touted as superfoods.
