When it comes to nutritional value, nature has given us good foods (apples, for example), great foods (blueberries), and really, really great foods (goji berries). These “really, really great foods” often fall into the “superfoods” category. These are foods that have exorbitantly high levels of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients for their small sizes.
The other day I drank a smoothie that was the same color as the aquamarine eyeshadow I used to wear in middle school (blame this movie). The smoothie was Juice Press's “Blue Magic,” and I couldn’t stop staring at its color.
In the course of one week, I heard someone talk about eating chlorophyll as a nutritional supplement on three separate occasions. Yes, chlorophyll, the green pigment found in high concentrations in plants. Chlorophyll allows these plants to absorb light and convert it into energy. Though we’re talking about photosynthesis right now, we’re not back in sixth grade science class.
In the past few years it has become common to put “superfoods” in every component of breakfast.
