Superfoods to the rescue!!

I came across a list of superfoods a few months ago and have been talking about them at home quite a bit. "Wow, that smoothie you just drank had three superfoods in it..."

Here is a bit of info about what they are... (taken from WebMD)
Imagine a superfood -- not a drug -- powerful enough to help you lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer, and, for an added bonus, put you in a better mood. A healthy diet incorporating a variety of the following superfoods will help you maintain your weight, fight disease, and live longer.

Top Superfoods Offering Super Health Protection

  • Beans
  • Blueberries
  • Broccoli
  • Oats
  • Oranges
  • Pumpkin
  • Salmon
  • Soy
  • Spinach
  • Tea (green or black)
  • Tomatoes
  • Turkey
  • Walnuts
  • Yogurt

So lately Lincoln (age 3) has been asking about everything he sees. "Mommy, are hot dogs superfoods?" Absolutely not. "Mommy, is cake superfood?" Nope. Then this morning, "Mommy, are french fries superfood?" No, french fries are not superfood. "Oh. They are just good, then?"
