Here's a mini-mantra: ask not what you can do to your food, but what your food can do for you! Indeed, a functional food is essentially just what it sounds like: a food that supports a well-functioning organism. And guess what?
Every super-food fits into this category. These foods have extra nutritional perks that do more than just taste good- they have a valuable effect on the body as well. If we eat a handful of goji berries, for example, we're getting loads of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, a little protein, and healthy carbohydrates, all in the package of a sweet treat. These well-balanced goji berries have essential phytonutrients (plant- based nutrients) that our bodies can use to support functions like eyesight and the immune system. A plate of traditional fettuccine, on the other,offers us little more than, well ...carbohydrates. Thanks)
The nutritional superiority of super-foods is easy to see: these functional foods are more than just calories; they're foods with real-deal benefits.Check out our Super food Smoothie collection and out ingredients .
