My Top 30 Superfood “Power Rankings” (…numbers 1 thru 10)

There is no absolute truth here, just my opinion on which superfoods offer the most overall wellness benefits when taken consistently. Every health blogger will have a different list, and different body chemistries may react differently to different superfoods.

I'm going by my OPINION of superfoods I've extensively researched, and personally used, therefore,  there may be others that should be on the lists that I haven't tried yet (like "maybe" wheatgrass, quinoa, and bee pollen..there are probably 30 more just as great that I'll never get to….).

The "Pleasure and Pain" of Healthy Eating

The Pleasure?      I'm mean, these first 6-7 food photos (special shout out to the biscuits and Black Pepper Strawberry Butter below). When I went full tilt into healthy eating, no way was I giving real food up, just determined to have the highest quality, most insanely delicious food I could afford.

The Pain?   Truly "Real food" is getting harder and harder to find in the city. You gotta put in in some work to find the real deal if you live in the city……

The New [Superfood] Kids on the Block (Part 7): Black Seeds (….and Black Seed Oil)

I must be slipping……

…because I saw myself, admittedly less humble than I should be, as the "King of Research", but I had never heard of Black Seeds until 2016 (many thanks to a reader of my blog who hooked me up).

So, though a "New Kid" from my point of view, Black Seeds are an ages old Superfood, revered in history. And after research, I had to immediately bring this "New Kid" into my daily regiment.
