We love herbs and spices- the addition of different herbs and spices can profoundly alter the taste of a dish, taking something from drab to sublime. But we also love that herbs and spices pack antioxidants and antibacterial benefits that go a long way towards keeping us healthy!
One word: Fiber. Because it feeds your gut bacteria (the good guys!), keeps you full and keeps you, ahem, regular. Yup, this little guy does it all!
Of course, there are so many more that we love- here are some of our favorite topics (but don’t be shy, take a look around the site to find your favorite Superfoods topics!)

Superfoods for weight loss
Eating less and moving more is the best advice when it comes to losing weight, right? Yes… and no. Eating the wrong kinds of foods- even if you are eating fewer total calories- can do more harm than good. There are some foods that help and some that hinder when it comes to weight loss.
