By eating a healthy diet, you can feel more energetic, reduce your risk of chronic disease, and even slow down the aging process. From misleading labels and an over-reliance on putting the ‘healthy’ tag on just about any grocery item, determining which foods are actually healthy can be difficult. That’s why it’s best to avoid so-called healthy snacks and go straight for individual, unprocessed food items (such as avocado or salmon).

Some of the healthy foods are best consumed as nutritional supplements either because they aren’t particularly good ‘stand alone’ foods (such as the algae chlorella) or because you’d need to eat too much of them to get their full benefits (such as lion’s mane mushroom extract).


superfoods category
Superfoods are foods that are nutritionally rich, and thus considered good for a person’s health. Superfoods are mostly plant-based, but some dairy and fish are in this food category. When referring to plant-based foods, the terms supergreens or green superfoods are sometimes used.
