6 Superfoods to Boost Your Health

Superfoods are foods that are particularly nutrient-dense and help keep your body healthy.

Eating a diet rich in superfoods can help protect your health and give you more energy. Of course, you can’t live on a cheeseburger and fries diet, add a few superfoods, and expect to feel great. A healthy lifestyle is all about your overall habits, and that means avoiding unhealthy saturated fats, limiting your refined sugars, and getting plenty of exercise.

Superfoods aren’t a silver bullet, but as part of an overall healthy, active routine, they can definitely give you a boost. Some superfoods protect against disease, some have anti-aging properties, and some do both. What all of the superfoods on this list have in common is that they’re delicious and they’re easy to find at the grocery store or your local co-op’s or health food store’s bulk bin.

I have heard of people eating Chia seeds but I haven't tried them yet. I still relate them to the silly Chia-pets on TV comercials

I need to stop falling off the wagon with my eating and drinking. I love orange juice & smoothies & cranberry/pomegranate juice & almond milk but occasional have unhealthy beverages. I love fruit but occasional over do it with faux meats. I like vegetables but ruin it by adding lots of soy sauce.

I need to be completely committed to a healthy lifestyle!
