Are you familiar with superfoods? The dictionary definition of a superfood is a “nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being”. While it’s not an official food group, superfoods usuallly offer big doses of things like antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals. The reason they are super is that eating them may actually reduce the risk of chronic disease and even prolong life. Superfoods include things like salmon, kale, hemp seeds, black garlic, and seaweed. Also in the superfoods group are many nuts, seeds, fruits and cacao. You know why I LOVE that cacao is a superfood? It’s the basis for quality dark chocolate, which isn’t just a superfood, but also my favorite food!

8 oz of dark chocolate
a variety of nuts and dried fruits (pistachios, almonds, dried apricots, cranberries, and raisins shown)
