Three Things That You Will Learn

1.) What Categorizes a Superfood 

Since a superfood is not a scientific term we had to make a little make-shift definition. Essentially, determining a superfood to be something that has off the charts nutritional value. Very scientific, we know.  

2.) The “It” List of Superfoods Fame 

With an idea of a superfood is in mind, we go down the heavy hitters of the superfood realm. Comparing the proposed benefits (read: snake oil) that have been touted for a couple of years now to the actual dietary value of foods like avocados and coconut water.  Also, we do get into the nitty-gritty of whether it’s nutritionally worth it to choke down a kale salad. If you’re interested in finding out the answer press play! 

2.) The Do’s and Don’ts of Making a Proper Smoothie

A little bonus topic that we thought we would throw in here is the topic of smoothies. More specifically the question of whether emulsifying your food leaves you better off. To find out the deal: are they sugar, carb-bombs or a health miracle in liquid form? Listen to get the scoop.
