If you’re reading this than you already have some knowledge of the importance of good nutrition. I’m a big advocate of “you are what you eat.” Meaning, what you put in your body largely determines what you look like on the outside.  Superfoods will give you a great advantage with this!

Also, if you make a serious effort to improve your eating habits, you will notice a positive change in how you look and feel. It’s not about perfection though. Thrive to make small changes to your diet over time and you’ll eventually be amazed at the will power you develop.

There are 12 superfoods that you should be eating on a regular basis. All have their own unique health benefits. If you mold your diet around the majority of these foods, you’ll notice an improvement in your health.
