Superfoods are all over the internet but what are they? They’re foods that provide maximum nutritional benefits with minimal calories. It’s a newer term added to the nutrition dialog in the last few decades and can include vegetables, fish, nuts, grains and more.
If you’re already growing your own vegetables, you know that growing and then harvesting your vegetables at home ensures that you are getting peak nutritional benefits from your food. In fact, by the time you get most vegetables home from the grocery store, you’ve already lost up to 50% of their nutrients.
So, it makes absolute sense that if you want to add more nutrition to your diet by eating superfoods, start by growing as many of them as you can.
