So you want a list of superfoods… you’ve come to the right place. I’m going to give you a short superfoods list to use, but I’m also going to recommend that you get hold of a much longer, more thorough, more well explained list you can print out and have in your kitchen.
You see, it’s all very well spending hours or days scouring the internet looking for a superfoods list, but I know you don’t really want to spend all day doing that. What you want is a definitive list you can get on with and add into your diet.
And that’s what I’m going to recommend to you – a proper superfoods list that will make your superfood hunting days a thing of the past.
But first – my short list of superfoods for you: these are all green superfoods. Why green? Well, the green colour is a good indication of “super” quality of foods. The chemicals that make the food green are often associated with many other nutrients and phytochemicals which come with all the super properties.
#1: Green tea – I know what you’re thinking, technically this isn’t a green food… although it sort of is because the tea leaves are still green. This is the difference between green tea and “normal” brown tea.
The leaves come from the same plant, but have not been through an oxidation process which blackens them. Because they are less processed, they retain more of the natural superfood nutrients from the plant, and release them into the tea. Great!
#2: Broccoli – may help protect against cancers, boost your immune system, beat off peptic ulcers, and is packed with essential vitamins and nutrients. Broccoli is an absolute powerhouse, but many people overlook it because of bad experiences as a child.
Here’s how to cook broccoli so it actually tastes nice: fill a pan with boiling salted water, and place a sieve over the top of the pan. Fill the sieve with raw broccoli and pop a lid over the top. Steam the broccoli for 4-5 minutes, and serve hot.
#3: Artichoke – the last item on my short list of superfoods, the artichoke. This food is actually a thistle, believe it or not, but we’ve been eating it for hundreds of years. Artichokes are like natural yogurt in the sense that they’re a natural digestive aid and provide health benefits to the digestive tract.
When buying an artichoke, look for an even, green color with as little brown
discoloration as possible. Try to choose one with tighter leaves that feels firm and weighty. Finally, squeeze the artichoke and listen for a squeak. That’s a good sign!
