Spring has arrived, which means the temperatures are going to get warmer, you will spend more time outdoors, and you will likely revisit the healthy resolutions you made at the beginning of the year.
For many people, Spring feels like a fresh start, similar to the beginning of the year. You might eat better, become more active, and make new goals for the year.
If this sounds like you, and you want to improve your health and diet, superfoods are one great way to do that.
These types of foods are higher in nutrients than the average type of food. They include a combination of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, even grains and meat. Each of the superfoods will have lots of vitamins and minerals you need to have a healthy, balanced diet.
The following superfoods are ones that are recommended in the springtime, not only because they are available this time of year, but it is easy to add them to foods you tend to enjoy when the weather is warmer.
I thought I’d share a delicious recipe that includes superfoods so you can begin to enjoy more nutrition for your family. I also included a SuperFoods EGuide with 8 delicious superfoods that are already in your kitchen. If they are not, you will easily find them at your local grocery store.
