Superfoods are foods that are short on calories and dense in nutrition. In this video, Dr. Oz and chef Marjorie Johnson cook some superfoods like kale and sweet potatoes.
There are many definitions of superfoods, but I define superfoods as hardworking functional foods that far surpass basic nutritional content. They are, quite simply, the cleanest, most powerful, antioxidant-rich, phytonutrient-rich and anti-aging foods available anywhere.
Super-foods are nutrient-dense vegetables and fruits that are functional foods. This means they are the foods filled with the most nutrients and they promote good health and weight control.
Some examples of good super-foods include kale, blueberries, quinoa, flax seed, sweet potatoes, walnuts, garlic, beans, apples, oranges and carrots.
