I think the fear around eating super healthy is that it will require a big lifestyle change, forcing you to learn all new recipes and figure out how to cook things you’ve never touched before. I know that I certainly don’t have time for that. Maybe just once a fiscal quarter I take the time to A) learn what some funny-looking vegetable is at the Farmer’s market and B) how to cook a new food. When I do, I eat it obsessively because it’s one of the few ultra healthy things I know how to make. I can’t imagine having to go through that learning process for several things, on a regular basis.
But often, making better choices is a lot easier than that. It’s quite possible that you already eat certain superfoods, every day, without realizing it. A super food, to be clear, is a non-medical term that describes foods with unusually high levels of certain nutrients that can promote things like better immunity, heart health, and have other positive effects on our physical or emotional health. Basically, a superfood can do several great things for your body, at once, and often after just consuming small quantities of the stuff.
If you’re very busy, superfoods really should be a part of your diet, since you need something that packs a punch, but comes in a small package. You don’t want to change your routine, though, so that’s why we’ve compiled a list of superfoods that are actually quite easy to eat with many of the things you already consume on a regular basis. You don’t need to learn all new recipes, or make sacrifices on flavor. These superfoods should blend in nicely with what’s already on the menu this week. In fact, they may already be in your kitchen.
One ounce of these seeds has 11 grams of fiber, 30 percent of your daily recommended intake of magnesium, and 27 percent of your daily recommended intake of phosphorus. Nearly flavorless and soft in texture when wet, they blend easily into smoothies, cereal, or yogurt.
