What is a “super food”? It’s a word used by marketers and that superfoods really aren’t so easy to define so the answer is nobody really knows.
Below is a list of foods I would call “super food” because they are packed with nutrients while also being low in calories or good for you in other ways. These foods can help to boost your health and enhance your diets.…
Apples are not just a great source of fiber, they’re also super high in vitamin C thereby helping to improve your immune system and they contain lots of potassium too. Potassium helps to combat cramps and other issues. Then there’s vitamin K which is important for the blood and quercetin.
Tuna fish may be a little high in mercury so you don’t want to overdo it, but in the right quantities this is a fantastic source of protein that’s also very lean (think lean muscle mass) and it’s additionally a good way to get omega 3 fatty acid for improved joint health and brain function!
Peanut butter is a little calorific but you get a lot of goodness in those calories. Peanut butter provides you with fiber, protein, carbs and fats all in good proportions and is rich in fatty acids as well as a number of key nutrients. It’s delicious too and goes great on toast!
Organ meats are the most nutrient dense part of any animal, so it’s time to stop being squeamish! As well as being high in protein and minerals like magnesium, organ meats are also a great source of some cell-energy enhancers such as coenzyme Q10, creatine and PQQ. Many of these are things that athletes pay a lot of money for!
Spinach is low calorie and it’s high in iron and phytoecdysteroids. This one is great for improving energy levels then, for bulking up a low-carb meal and for aiding muscle growth as well.
Avocados are full of the good kind of fat and barely any carbs. They taste delicious in a chicken sandwich and they drive up your testosterone for enhanced fat burning and muscle building.
Eggs may be a little high in fat but they’re also a great source of protein – being one of the few complete amino acid sources around. What’s more, they’re also a source of vitamin D (one of the few food sources) and of choline for enhanced brain function.
