5 Awesome Super Foods You’re Not Eating
You want to eat healthier, or you have been eating healthy but are becoming a little unenthusiastic about chicken and broccoli for dinner... again. It happens to more people than just you; that's why there are so many great insights on ways to switch up your food.

But, what about the lesser-known healthy alternatives that every foodie, health motivator and your best friend forgot to tell you about?

Super foods, nutrient-rich foods that are known for their health benefits, come in all shapes and sizes.

However, they may require a bit of a hunt in your grocery store.

Katie's Top 5:
  • Black garlic
