Everyday Superfoods


Happy Easter Weekend! Most Easter desserts involve sugary treats, and I'm not going to lie, I made cupcakes, but they just don't taste right too me. Too much sugar, too artificial with the candy on it. So today I want to talk to you guys about Superfoods! This is a special category of foods found in nature. They are low in calories and packed with amazing nutrients we cannot make ourselves.They are also superior sources of anti-oxidants!

Awesome superfoods you can eat everyday! 
Kale, Spinach
Berries
Eggs
Beans
Sweet Potatoes
Broccoli
Yogurt
Apples
Raw Almonds
Avocados
Coconut Oil
Organic Grass-Fed Butter

Apples are a powerful superfood and are a source of antioxidants, including polyphenols, flavonoids, and vitamin C. They are also full of fiber, potassium and low in calorie.

Here's something you might not know: It is important to eat the skin of an apple to obtain the full health benefits. The secret behind this SuperFood’s antioxidant capacity lies in its skin! The apple skin alone provides two to six times the antioxidant activity of the apple flesh alone. So don't peel your apple for the recipe!
