Super food is food that has extraordinary and broad spectrum of nutrients and or medical properties. Super foods add more to your body and soul than just the sense of satiety and it may be vegetables, fruit, roots, seeds and other plants. Common to super foods is that it is clean food, that is, organically grown and unprocessed. Super foods should be treated with care and not be heated to more than 40 degrees to as much nutrients as possible should be intact.

Super foods are actually seen as food and medicine in one. By eating foods that stimulate regeneration and repair, our bodies become more balanced. Many people eat super foods as a kind of supplements, it is not about eating lots of everything but little of as much as possible .

Below I list a whole lot of different super food, but the products may also be bought in ”common form" too. As cocoa powder for example. Regular cocoa powder is processed and heated several times, while raw cacao is not heated, and therefore includes a variety of healthy antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

In order to stay as healthy as possible, I try to use different super foods in our diet, as often as I can.  Much depends of course on what I have bought before and is available in the kitchen, so for me it was all about changing my purchasing habits in the grocery store. To buy the new stuff instead of the old. I have also started to buy a lot online, from for example. is an American web shop that has really good products and better prices than here in Sweden anyway. (If you want to shop at iHerb , enter the code LRL574 to get 10% off your first purchase).

I find it so interesting and exciting that the food we eat actual affects how we feel. It no news and its obvious, but never the less, many people see food not as nutrition but as a way to stay out of their worst feeling – HUNGER.  Its time to wake up and start treating your body the way it deserves. Remember You are what you eat. So don´t be: Fast, Cheap, Easy or Fake.
