So, I just took a nutrition class from Vanderbilt University on Coursera. Because I have come across a lot of different diets since I have become interested in nutrition and fitness. It’s so easy to get lost in the clouds of information. What’s hard nowadays is no longer the access to information but rather how to sift through the massive amount of information. I felt like I really needed to pay attention to the credibility of information and really look into the “textbook”. I wanted to make sure they are at least scientific-based.
“Super food” is not a new term. Many recent superfood includes common food choices whose nutritional value has been long recognized. Examples of these would be berries, nuts and seeds in general, dark green vegetables , citrus fruits, fatty fish, vegetables with bright, dark or intense colors, many legumes, and whole grains as a group.
The class that I took also gave an example list of super food. A lot of them are already in common everyday diet, but I think this is still a great guide for grocery shopping. It’s now on my fridge door. And I wanted to share this with you and hope you find it helpful as well.
Eat clean and SUPER!
