Super Foods Make For A Super You!

superfoodsLily Barton, College of DuPage Student Nurse, writes that most Americans have heard of the term ‘super foods’ but when asked what types of foods fall into this category they may fall short. Super foods are nutritional powerhouses for the body. They not only help with weight loss but they have been shown to prevent chronic disease, strengthen the immune system, improve cognitive ability, provide a natural boost of energy, and the list goes on…. The reason these foods are so beneficial is because they are packed with antioxidants and vitamins and minerals that we may not get a daily diets.

A common misconception is that in order to eat a healthy diet, we need to consume bland, boring foods, but in reality, that is not the case. ‘Super foods’ not only sound super, they can be delicious too! Examples of super foods are blueberries, tomatoes, kale, black beans, broccoli, salmon, and oats. Super foods include a wide range of food groups, therefore, a nutritious diet challenges the notion that healthy eating must be bland and boring. The preparation of these foods can also vary; whether preparing oatmeal with blueberries or adding salmon to a kale salad, it’s a bonus , as the body’s need for healthy nutrients and great taste are both satisfied!

Dr. Joseph Mercola, nutritionist, physician and health philanthropist said it best; “At the end of the day, you invest in your wardrobe and your hair and your car and everything else, so invest in your body. Because it’s supposed to last for 100 years.”
