Do you know what a superfood is? Do you know how many superfoods there are? Have you eaten a superfood before? Hello my Name is Xavier and I am going to be talking about Superfoods and their benefits to you and me.

So you might be thinking what is a superfood. Superfoods are whole foods that have not been processed. They are foods that contain numerous combinations of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that help prevent sicknesses and diseases. Some of the most common superfoods are familiar foods that could be added to any of your meals. Fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds, healthy fat, legumes, nuts, and fish. These foods are the best foods for our health and wellbeing and can provide a long healthy life.

I chose to the topic of superfoods because I think that it is an interesting subject. There are many different types of superfoods and all are extremely good for your physical and your everyday health. I have a family history of heart-attack, stroke, high-blood pressure and type two diabetes.  This is relevant to me because these conditions run in my family, and if I have a healthy, superfood rich diet from an early age, maybe I can prevent some or all of these condition in my later life. I now know that if you include superfoods into your everyday diet, you can lead a healthy, long life. It helps you to be in a healthy weight range, be active in both your body and your mind.

I include superfoods in my everyday diet, this means that I am getting lots of vitamins and minerals, growing a healthy body and eating the best foods I can eat. Superfoods are important because without them we wouldn’t get the right amount of oils, good fats, vitamins, minerals. ¬†Superfoods are good for teens because they help the immune system, helps them stay on task, not feel drained of energy have a clear mind to learn and concentrate at school and sport.

By researching Superfoods, I have learned that they are very important foods that we need to be part of our everyday diet, and we need to consume as many as possible as often as possible to let our bodies get all the vitamins, minerals, fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds, healthy fats, legumes, nuts, and fish we need. I used to think that a superfood was eating a carrot or broccoli once or twice a week, and that was enough. I now know that there are over 100 superfoods, and you need these in your diet regularly to maintain a healthy mind and body. I have also learned that eating SuperFoods regularly can help prevent cancers, heart attacks, cholesterol, high blood pressure, helps the immune system and lots more. This influences my thinking about wellness because eating SuperFoods can make you live longer!
