Super Food recipes

This is a great article from http://www.motherearthliving.com on super foods!

Let’s be honest: There’s no such thing as “The Perfect Food.” Natural foods—of superfood status or not—function as team players, each contributing a unique and complementary set of nutritional attributes (a key to why pursuing health through isolated synthetic vitamins is not particularly effective). Understandably, the mantra behind superfood cuisine is to promote a top-quality variety of exciting edibles that together offer prime nutritional synergy.

4 Superfood Recipes

• Superfruit Salad recipe
• Spring Salad with Ginger Dressing recipe
• Quinoa with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pesto Sauce recipe
• Black-Eyed Pea and Kale Stew recipe

Of course, looking at the core definition of a superfood alone, it’s easy to see that a great number of vegetables, fruits, seeds and other plant-based foods function in ways that would qualify them as worthy of wearing the “nutrient-dense” cape. Nonetheless, some superfoods are so profoundly packed with beneficial qualities, they deserve a closer look. It’s not that they offer different nutrition than everyday plant-based whole foods per se; they just offer it in a dramatically higher concentration. Some of these foods are so nutrient-dense, they require as little as a spoonful to catapult an entire recipe into superfood status.

The following cherry-picked “specialty superfoods” are chosen for their efficient contribution to living a healthy lifestyle. Though I’m finding these ingredients available in more and more local retail outlets thanks to an increase in superfood popularity, depending on where you live, you may need to do a little hunting to find some of them. Most, however, can be found in your neighborhood health-food store, and if they don’t carry an ingredient, put in a request to the manager to bring in this new item, or place a special order (you’ll help make these foods a staple grocery item for everyone).

Of course, the earth abounds with astoundingly healthy edibles, some of which are just being discovered. But for kitchen purposes, the foods listed here have the golden combination of being readily available, as well as useful from a culinary (aka deliciousness) standpoint.
