What is a Superfood? Sweet Kale Vegetable Salad Kit
On a recent trip to Costco, I found a new vegetable salad kit that looked delicious. On the package, it stated that it contains 7 Superfoods. Evidently, being friends with Melissa has rubbed off on me. I actually wanted to know what a Superfood was, so I googled it. According to www.wisegeek.org, a Superfood is “a food rich in phytochemicals, which are special chemicals that have been noted to have disease-fighting properties. Phytochemicals can reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer, reduce inflammation, strengthen the immune system, or in some other way contribute to a person being healthier. When foods are high in these phytochemicals, they may be eaten not only because they taste good, but because they are good for the health too.”
The salad contains broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, chicory, dried cranberries, and roasted pumpkin seeds. It is served with poppyseed dressing and is delicious!!! Give it a try!
