Superfoods...Your Guide to Understanding the Benefits
The modern world challenges our bodies from every imaginable perspective. A well-balanced diet may not be enough to achieve optimal health. We have become increasingly aware of the serious impact on our food sources due to soil depletion and the rapid nutrition loss sustained during transportation from farm to plate. While a raw food plant-based diet remains ideal, Superfoods are a remarkable dietary addition to ensure that the full nutrient spectrum is available in optimal amounts. In Superfoods, readers are introduced to the Superfoods concept and why they are beneficial. A guide to understanding the potential benefits of Superfoods, a power-packed recipe, and a useful "Buyer Beware" section help to give every consumer the Superfoods edge!
