Superfoods comprise a specific set of edible, incredibly nutritious plants that cannot be entirely classified as foods or medicines, because they combine positive aspects of both. The scientific evidence in this book outlines the discovery that superfoods are an essential part of a balanced diet and allow us to get more nutrition with less eating. Most of us have had the experience of eating all day just to keep our blood sugar up while receiving very little nourishment in the process. We also know that most of the conventional foods and fast foods today are nothing but empty calories.
