3 Foods to add to your Shopping List!

These three foods have unexpected health benefits and are high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals! Definitely worth adding to your diet.

You can find these three 'Superfoods' in the produce section of your supermarket. I believe there are hundreds of foods that should be classified as 'Superfoods', its great to know which easily accessible foods you can buy that have optimal health benefits! Remember to opt for organic or locally grown produce for a higher nutrient content!
