Introducing favorite superfoods and their recipes is a weekly feature at Kitchen Table Medicine. 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 that superfood to each post for all to enjoy!
