‘Foods that offer maximum nutritional benefits for minimal calories' is the official description of a superfood according to the Medical News Today website.
So, consuming superfoods that are packed with nutrients is certainly a good idea but, they should be consumed as part of a balanced diet. Drinking the occasional wheatgrass juice will not undo the harmful effects caused by a diet that is mostly based on junk food!
Adding superfoods to your diet can certainly be beneficial and if you are looking for somewhere to start we recommend the following:
- Leafy green vegetables
- Nuts and seeds
- Pulses and Legumes
- Oily fish
An easy way to add superfoods to your diet is by drinking one of our superfood juices every day. These can be consumed plain or added to your morning smoothie ensuring that you start the day with a nutrient-rich boost.
