Fall is a the ideal time for a gentle detox to shed any excess weight before the holidays and to boost your immune system in preparation to fight off those pesky winter bugs.
Did you know that the word superfood has no set scientific meaning? We see and hear the term used so much that it’s hard to believe that there is no official definition for the word.
Generally though, the term refers to foods – mostly plants – which are full of nutrients that are especially beneficial for your health. They usually contain high levels of antioxidants and phytochemicals.
In fact, all the nutrients that your body needs to detoxify. Detoxing through your diet is a great way to give your body a break and support its natural self-cleaning system
If you search the internet for superfoods you will come across lists of 10 superfoods, 25 top superfoods, and even 100 superfoods. They all differ too.
Most lists are made up of foods whose nutritional value has been long recognized such as berries, nuts and seeds, dark green vegetables, citrus fruits, oily fish, vegetables with bright, dark, or intense colors, such as beets and sweet potatoes, certain wild mushrooms, legumes and whole grains.
No wonder these foods are also good detox foods. Just incorporate these 10 best superfoods into your diet for a gentle fall cleanse.
