How to Add Superfoods to Your Family’s Meals

We’ve been seeing it pop up on some of our favorite influencer’s posts, on grocery store promos and recipe videos. Superfoods seem to be taking over like a new diet fad, but these nutrition-packed eats have always been around. Closely aligned with anti-inflammatory foods, superfoods offer benefits such as omega-3 fatty acids, being high in fiber and being a good source for Vitamin A and C. It can be hard to cook healthy and make it tasty enough for your family to enjoy. There are so many superfoods to choose from that you can fit them into breakfast, lunch and dinner which will keep your meals healthy and your family full and happy.


Olive oil, garlic and ginger are all superfoods too! Start cooking your meals with olive oil and sprinkle in garlic salt or ginger wherever you can to add an extra boost of health to your food.

But First, Breakfast

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and they’re probably right. The superfoods you can use in the morning are most likely already in your pantry. Take a look at what you can have, what you need and what you can do in the mornings to get in your vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. Whether you’re on the go and grabbing a yogurt (you can sprinkle berries in it for a double-dose of superfoods), snacking on fruit or tossing up an omelet, it’s easy to start your day off on a healthy foot.

Superfoods You Can Use: Yogurts, berries, eggs, avocados, tomatoes, mushrooms, whole grains, green tea

Meals You Can Make: Yogurt parfait, fruit bowls, smoothies, omelets, oatmeal, avocado toast


Bananas are categorized as a berry. Sure, they look nothing alike but all it takes to be considered a berry is that it grows from a single flower.

Clock Out For Lunch

You’ll most likely have something on the lighter side for lunch but that’s okay! All of the protein and vitamins that are in these small but mighty meals will keep you energized for your day and get you through to dinner without a rumbling stomach. Just because this meal is more greens-based doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Get crafty with quinoa salads, stuffed avocados, chili, buddha bowls or even protein bento boxes to make your lunch the one the office envies and that your body needs.

Superfoods You Can Use: Dark leafy greens, legumes, sweet potato, avocado, nuts

Meals You Can Make: Kale or spinach salads, buddha bowls, veggie tacos, chili, avocado salad


More than 60 million tomatoes are produced each year and Americans eat anywhere between 22 to 24 pounds a year per person.

What’s For Dinner?

The possibilities for your last meal of the day are pretty much endless. Whether you’re treating your family to a homemade garden pizza that’s covered in bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, sprouts and avocado, making a Mexican-inspired soup or busting out the grill for some fish, dinner is served and served well! Stay innovative with the same ingredients and challenge yourself to cook up something different every night. Soon, you’ll be in a routine of adding superfoods to your meal without even trying.

Superfoods You Can Use: Fish, cruciferous vegetables, legumes, dark leafy greens, sweet potatoes, mushrooms

Meals You Can Make: Garden pizza, stir fry, a salmon dish, veggie pasta, soups, salads


California might as well be synonymous with avocados. Not only do we eat a lot of them, but we also grow tons of it too! California produces the most avocados in the United States and is followed by Florida and Hawaii.
