There are hundreds of so-called superfoods in the world, foods that are considered super healthy. Some are readily available like blueberries, tea and spinach while others are more exotic like pomegranate and acai berries. Do you seek out ‘superfoods’? If so, which ones, and how do you incorporate them into your everyday cooking routine?
I think some so-called superfoods are just a gimmick. But there are foods that are high in nutritive value, and some, like the blueberries you've pictured here, that are also high in anti-oxidants. I like blueberries. I prefer them fresh but they have more than doubled in price in the last few years, so I tend to buy them frozen. The make the most tasty, yet revoltingly grey coloured smoothies. I prefer the look of the raspberry smoothies. I also add blueberries or raspberries to porridge in winter, along with some chia seed thrown in to make it thicker.
I love raw cacao, which I use to make fructose free chocolate snackettes. I think that is classified as a superfood somewhere. Oh, and I don't think coconut water is a superfood but it sure works as a rehydrator when I am really thirsty or feeling lethargic because I have been so busy I forgot to drink water. I could just drink water but it's a lot easier to down a litre of coconut water than a litre of water.
I can't think of any other foods that would be labelled superfoods that I regularly eat, but eating fresh food rather than packaged meals is a super idea anyday!
If it's something to do with fruits - making naturally sweetened yoghurt, juices, smoothies, etc can be a good option :)
With veggies - steam them up and chuck it in a stir fry - absolutely filling and delicious :)
