Super foods are foods considered beneficial to your health, and often contain high levels of antioxidants and vitamins that are purported to have cancer fighting abilities.
Most foods considered super foods are basic things humans have been eating for years and years: greens, nuts, fruits, legumes, fish, berries and whole grains etc.
Chances are, if you eat a well rounded, unprocessed diet, you’re probably already eating lots of super foods. Most of these things are easily recognizable, although some greens may be harder to identify than others, but whole grains are a food group that many of us are just starting to explore.

The thing about food and cooking is that we never run out of things to learn about! I hope you find this information helpful, because I certainly did.
