Superfoods can be super boring, super bland, and super gross. But they offer super benefits that cause people to ignore these facts and swallow them whole (literally).

Eating healthy shouldn’t painful. So here are several ways to add soul to superfoods to make them taste (super) delicious.

Combined Them

Berries and yogurt are two superfoods that taste okay by themselves, but if you combined them you have tasty treat suitable for breakfast, lunch, or even a snack. If you want to get jazzy add dark chocolate in the mix and you’ll have a sweet dessert option on hand. FYI dark chocolate is full of antioxidants  and great for your heart. You know what they say, ” the blacker the… oh wait that’s berries”, but it should be applied to chocolate as well.

Seasoning Makes A Difference

We’ve all gone out to a restaurant, ordered the salmon, and been less than impressed by the watery, tasteless, cube of fish we just consumed. Seasoning can make or break any food. The key to adding flavor w/o adding calories/salt/or other bad things is using fresh ingredients like lemon, lime, basil, mint, cilantro, and rosemary.  These ingredients are packed with flavor and can turn the most tasteless dish into a five-star entrée.
