What are super foods?

Google has them defined as follows…

Super food

Although there seems to be no official scientific definition of a superfood, I would like to believe there are natural foods that enhance our mood, boost our energy, contain high levels of much needed vitamins & minerals as well as shielding our bodies from cell damage and preventing disease.

For me, a superfood smoothie is a convenient way of getting a wholesome breakfast in to start the day… Its easy to prepare, filling and lasts me till lunchtime avoiding those dreaded mid morning munchies!
