Superfood It!

Superfood

Although there are no set criteria for determining whether a food is a superfood, most nutritionally dense foods rich in vitamins and minerals can be considered a superfood. This is especially true of foods that offer substantial health benefits, such as certain fish, legumes, berries, vegetables, and seeds.

Your local Fresh Thyme Farmers Market has superfoods in virtually every aisle, from Produce to Meat to Bulk to Natural Living.

Good to Know

Superfoods have a range of health benefits. Some are thought to be helpful in preventing certain cancers, while others aid in digestion. Others may support cardiovascular or brain health or overall immune system. Work a variety of superfoods into your family’s diet to improve health. Fresh Thyme superfoods make it easy.

The Well-Prepped Pantry

A fully stocked pantry makes planning meals and feeding unexpected guests, easy tasks. Many superfoods are also available dried—handy when you want to ramp up recipes. Stroll through Fresh Thyme Bulk Foods department for foods to stock at home. Dried foods store well in airtight containers; a dark room or closet free from temperature extremes will prolong food quality.

“My pantry includes the fixings for a sweet-and-savory superfood snack: popcorn, chili and garlic powders, sea salt, and 70% cacao dark chocolate morsels.”
—Meghan Sedivy, Fresh Thyme Registered Dietitian
