Superfoods for super health

You can't open a magazine or peruse a website without some article, mention or ad promoting superfoods - those foods that have high concentrations of disease-fighting nutrients that can improve your health and quality of life.

Nosh on walnuts as a snack or incorporate them into your favorite recipes — adding chopped walnuts to any dish will lend a delectable crunch and nutty flavor.
