Superfoods started to become trendy a few years ago, and are becoming more popular every day in peoples kitchens! However there are still many that are not quite caught up on the superfood fad….. but it is not to late to start 🙂
Superfoods are amongst the most powerful sources of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, and deliver 2-3x more nutrition than regular foods, so by implementing them into your daily diet through smoothies, juices, salads, or in snacks, combined with a predominantly based diet, you will be maximising your intake of vital nutrients every day!
