Though the term “super food” is somewhat recent, the idea of super-nutritious, life-giving foods have been around since the beginning of time. Actually, it’s likely that ancient man had a far better idea of what true superfoods really are than today’s individuals browsing today’s supermarket aisles. Still, today anyone can compile a hefty superfoods list to stock up on over time; there’s nothing like discovering and indulging in new foods you never knew existed.
There is no doubt that foods like broccoli, carrots, spinach, and tomatoes have amazing, health-boosting, healing potential. There is no doubt that consuming these widely available foods is the first step to improving diet and boosting health, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be introducing a new crop of superfoods. Simply because you likely haven’t heard of these foods doesn’t mean they are any less valuable.
