Even if you are a healthy eating newbie, you have heard about the benefits that some foods provide – including fighting disease, feeling more energetic and even losing weight.
Those foods are called superfoods. What exactly are they?
Superfoods are foods (mostly plant-based, but also some dairy and fish) considered to be nutritionally dense and good for your mind and body. Blueberries, chia seeds, salmon and quinoa are only a few amongst the list of many.
Including foods that are jam-packed with nutrients (as all of the superfoods are) is the way to go; however, you need to consume a variety of nutritious foods in the right quantities to maintain your weight, prevent disease or even live longer.
Here are my top 5 superfoods:
Chia Seeds

CHIA SEEDS
Chia seeds are full of many different phytochemicals, each with unique benefits known to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties.
Chia seeds benefits include promoting healthy skin, reducing signs of aging, supporting the heart and digestive system, building stronger bones and muscles.
And ditch that energy drink – they’re a natural energy booster too!

At 84 calories per cup, a serving of berries contains 14 percent of the suggested daily fibre and 24 percent of the suggested daily intake of Vitamin C.

Countless studies suggest that blueberries may reduce memory decline, may reduce heart attack risk, and may provide other anti-aging benefits.
