Superfoods

Do you want to supercharge your life? Enrich your diet? Live a long, happy and healthy life? I certainly do!

You’ll find a summary of some superfoods I cannot live without below:

Tomatoes
Rich in lycopene – which gives tomatoes their rich red colour, its also a strong antioxidant that helps fight off infections and even cancer (from recent research).    Lycopene has also been reported to protect white bloods cells, your body’s first line of defense against infection.  They not only taste great but are good for you to! 

Kale
Looks similar to spinach,  is a dark green leafy vegetable.  It has a alkalizing affect on your body as well.  High in vitamin A, C, magnesium, B6, calcium, copper and potassium.  This green vegetable is certainly worthy of super-food status.

Salmon
High in protein, iodine, minerals and zinc.  Fish, especially salmon, is high in omega 3  – the ultimate anti-aging fatty acid.  Omega 3 is great for hair, skin and nails too. 

Eggs
This superfood is full of protein, vitamins, minerals and should be part of any healthy lifestyle.   One serving of eggs provides you with every vitamin except for vitamin C – truly worthy of superfood status.

Spinach 
An average serve of spinach provides 5 mg of vitamin C, which is an eighth of the recommended daily intake. It is packed full of antioxidants which help fight free radicals and infections.
