Although there are no set criteria for determining whether a food is a superfood, most nutritionally dense foods rich in vitamins and minerals can be considered a superfood. This is especially true of foods that offer substantial health benefits, such as certain fish, legumes, berries, vegetables, and seeds.

THE WELL-PREPPED PANTRY
A fully stocked pantry makes planning meals and feeding unexpected guests, easy tasks. Many superfoods are also available dried—handy when you want to ramp up recipes. Stroll through Fresh Thyme Bulk Foods department for foods to stock at home. Dried foods store well in airtight containers; a dark room or closet free from temperature extremes will prolong food quality.
“My pantry includes the fixings for a sweet-and-savory superfood snack: popcorn, chili and garlic powders, sea salt, and 70% cacao dark chocolate morsels.”
