6 Winter Superfoods and 30+ Superfood Recipes

6 Winter Superfoods plus 30 Superfood Recipes The Organic Goddess

With the extra cold weather and stress on our immune systems, packing in Winter Superfoods is a deliciously healthy way to survive the polar vortex (all of them!).  I poked through some of my favorite health-FULL blogs and linked to some SUPER Superfood Recipes.  Happy and healthy eating!

1.  Root vegetables are in season and great sources of vitamins, minerals and flavor.  Versatility is the name of the game with a wide selection of choices for soups, stews, roasts, dips, salads and more.  A few of my personal faves …

Pomegranate as a Superfood Organic Goddess2.  Pomegranates: the gorgeous ruby seeds are full of anti-oxidants and may contribute to fighting heart disease and cancer.  One pomegranate contains a whopping 50% of your RDA for Vitamin C, plus is full of B5 that helps with muscle cramping and prevent insulin resistance.  Pomegranate also is rich in dietary fiber, and other B-complex vitamins.  Super Fruit is a Superfood!
