If you’re enjoying the season, you’re probably getting lots of pumpkin in your diet. Pumpkin is chock full of nutrients—but the sugar laden treats it’s packed on often aren’t, and only contain a smidgen of pumpkin (although the spices that accompany it, including cinnamon, are good for you, they too are only a smidgen, or artificial, or packed in syrup).
What about other superfoods? If you’re not enjoying a daily lunch full of a variety of green leaves (not just the sweeter ones) and other green plants (and maybe a healthy, spice rich dressing, not a sugar laden one), you might need to pack some more punch into your diet.
Superfoods are a great way to make sure you’re getting an array of vitamins and minerals (although some superfoods are more vitamin rich than mineral rich). But, they can hard to work into your day. Hard to source, in season or not. Hard to find fresh, hard to find a decent quality (especially once something becomes trendy).
