Senior Superfoods

October 9, 2017

What is a superfood? Is it something, like Superman, that changes identity in order to save the world? Well, not exactly. Spinach was introduced in the 1950s as the first Superfood (remember Popeye?). The Superfoods that are emerging today don’t have a whole cartoon series to promote them, but many of them are getting lots of cheerleading from different areas. And sometimes the information we get seems a bit overwhelming. Is wine good or bad for you? How can chocolate, full of sugar and fat, be a Superfood? And I thought we were supposed to be eliminating oils from our diet; why is olive oil suddenly a hero?
