A dietary mineral is defined as a chemical element required by a living organism, other than the four elements carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen
and oxygen common in organic molecules. In order for your body to flourish and feel well nourished, it is important to eat foods that
contains minerals and other nutrients. Many people like to call them superfoods because they do such a wonderful job in boosting the
body temple. Many of these foods listed below are superfoods that have been known to be used in traditional societies and by health
experts because they are low in calories but yet high in nutrient content. Let’s take a look three nutrient packed superfoods.
Very Low in calories. This food is very high in vitamin E, Omega 3′s and several B-vitamins. The interesting part about
wheat germ that many people don’t know is that the majority of the nutrients in wheat are found in the germ portion. What happens is we
like to remove the germ and bleach the remainder of the flour and we are left with a food that has next to zero nutritional benefit. Be
sure to do your due diligence when purchasing wheat germ because often times there are different flavorings added to it to enhance the
taste. It is recommended that you consume it fresh so that you can determine whether or not you are eating spoiled wheat germ or not.
If there are too many flavorings you may mistake the “good taste” for a nutritional superfood.
Many Native societies consider this superfood to be one of the most healthiest foods that you could eat if not the
healthiest. It is unique in that it is said to be higher in antioxidants and enzymes than almost any other food. Aside from being low
in calories it also contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. The best way to consume raw honey is to buy it unheated and
extracted directly from the honey comb. If you eat your honey like most people in America then you will be eating honey that has been
heated up and void of enzymes because of the heating process. Remember it is called RAW HONEY so it is best to consume it as close to
raw as possible.
The fungi that everyone loves to eat. This superfood has hardly any calories but is loaded with B-Vitamins, which is very
rare for a food that does not come from an animal source. The mineral content in mushrooms is also very high. Mushrooms are fungi,
which means that they have anti-bacterial properties. The best part about mushrooms is that they are easy to find and buy.
