7 ‘Tis the Season Superfoods

When it comes to food, it’s hard to beat the holiday season. There are as many decadent and delicious foods throughout the season as there are gifts. Let’s face it: few holiday foods are healthy. Here are my choices for the top 7 ‘Tis the Season Superfoods. They not only taste great, they add serious nutrition as well.

Apples—We’ve all heard the adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” and provided that apple is an organic one, the saying holds some truth. Apples contain important vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. They contain an important phytonutrient called malic acid that helps improve energy production in your body.

Beets—Recommended by holistic health professionals to help purify the blood and cleanse the liver, beets are high in folate, manganese, potassium, and vitamin C. The phytonutrient that gives beets their rich purplish-red hue is a potent cancer fighter.

Cranberries—Originally used by the first people of North America to treat urinary tract infections, cranberries and cranberry juice (the real deal, not the sugar-laden stuff most grocery stores dispense) are excellent holiday superfoods.
