Superfoods are not only foods to feed your body but they also fuel your brain. Eating superfoods is a great way to give your brain and body a natural boost. If you want to get the most from eating superfoods it is although important to eat and drink small amounts of food and shakes or juices at relatively short intervals throughout the whole day. This will keep you rbody and mind more energized. Eating more often will help to avoid drastic ebbs and flows of your blood sugar level. You don't have to quit cold turkey eating what you are used to eat right now; just try to move in some healthy superfoods and phase out some of the things  your mother already had told you to avoid when you were a child, like high sugary drinks, gummy bears and other unhealthy foods. Drinking water is also most  essential to maintain a good health. You can alway spice it up by drinking seltzer water or adding lemon, lime or orange juice.If your body has enough water, your skin will wrinkle less and you will feel fresher and more active. If your body has the right nutrition at all times, your mind will function better.

Eating fresh fruits and best all including the skins and/or seeds of the fruits is an easy way to bulk up on vitamins and water. Some foods like apricots, almonds, raisins, carrots apples, pears, plums, strawberries, kiwi's, can easily be carried around as snack in between. Not only do they taste good, but fruits have an average of only 60 calories but they are very high in nutrients and antioxidants, so you get a lot of nutrition value for the cost of very little calories.

Let's have a quick look at these fruits and why they are so good for you:

Peaches have lots of fiber, Vitamin A, potassium, niacin, and beta carotene to name just a few of their benefits. Niacin and potassium are particularly helpful providing your cells with the energy they need to grow and maintaining proper electrical stability of your cells. In fact, having low levels of potassium can cause heart attacks and other cardio-pulmonary problems. Dried peaches are extremely high on antioxidants 4222 ORAC units/100gram.

Carrots: have lots of fiber, Vitamine A, Vitamin C, folate, vitamin b6, iron, copper and beta carotene. Beta carotene is known to prevent some cancers and heart disease. Vitamin A helps maintain healthy skin and prevents respiratory problems. Folate is critical to help create new red blood cells. Eating lots of fresh organic carrots, or even better, drinking lots of  fresh carrot juice during the day betters the eyesight.

Raisins / Grapes: Raisins and grapes are packed with minerals like iron, copper, potassium, and phosphorus. Raisins also contain high amounts of antioxidants, depending on the type of raisins, between 3000 and 4188 ORAC units/100gram.

Apricots and Almonds: These little snacks are the Brangelina of the fruit and nut world. Not only are they great by themselves, (having lots of vitamin A, iron protein and dietary fiber) but they are especially powerful when eaten together. Apricots have lots of potassium, which is also helps regulate your body's fluid balance. The vitamin A in apricots contributes to healthy vision, bone growth, and helps fight infection.

So remember, to always be at your peak drink plenty of water and Green tea, avoid the sugary snacks and drinks, and eat small meals containing superfoods throughout the day!
