Introducing favorite superfoods and their recipes is an occasional feature here at the Kitchen Table. By gradually “making friends” with the most healthy foods from nature and learning how to incorporate them in to your diet you should notice a remarkable improvement in your health.
Most superfoods are simply high in anti-oxidants and thus slow down the natural destructive process of the tissues in our bodies. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants will help to prevent aging as well as a myriad of other chronic complaints and inflammation.
Other superfoods are super because they are rich in certain vitamins, minerals or other nutrients that benefit the body in a significant way.
Everyone is always invited to add their favorite recipes using any superfood in the comments section for all to enjoy!
