A superfood is any food rich in nutrients and health benefits. While many foods have some health benefits, others rise above the rest to truly shine. We’re talking about foods that pack a major punch of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that aid in our well-being.

While the term is not scientific, some foods are undoubtedly “super” for our bodies. Like these 8 super powders you can add to your diet. If you’re looking to get the most out of all these superfoods have to offer, check out these 5 recipes, and start adding them to your cooking rotation.

The Ultimate Green Tea Oatmeal

Take your favorite nutritious breakfast and kick it up a notch. Before you add boiling water to your whole grain oats, steep a bag of green tea in the liquid first. You'll get all the benefits of the extra ingredient, including a blast of antioxidants to help regulate cholesterol, reduce inflammation, and protect your heart.

For even more antioxidants, top your bowl of green-tea oats with fresh blueberries and raspberries. Not only are they also packed with antioxidants, they're full of vitamin C and can help aid digestion.

A Pistachio Sauce to Savor

Pistachios have countless health benefits, including high levels of vitamin B6 and thiamin, copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, vitamin A, and protein. They're also among the nuts with the lowest fat count. When you throw them in a food processor and add them to non-fat yogurt, which is packed with probiotics, the forgotten superfood garlic, and a little lemon zest, you create a dipping sauce with maximum superfood power.

A Scrumptious Ginger Soup

Ginger is known for its many health benefits, including the ability to reduce pain, prevent inflammation, and promote digestion and stop nausea. It is rich in antioxidants and virtually fat-free. But many people wonder how to use up all the extra ginger root left over once you've grated the few teaspoons needed for a recipe. Create a rich and satisfying soup with the miracle root, incorporating garlic, sweet potato, and the fermented food miso to improve gut health.

Seaweed Snack Wraps

Seaweed isn't sushi-exclusive, and this recipe combines the powers of the wonderful green with other superfoods, such as sunflower and pumpkin seeds along with red bell peppers, garlic, and grated beets. These snack wraps are vegan and paleo, and the nutrition benefits are endless. Seaweed is rich in fiber, vitamin A, B, C, and E, and promotes digestion. Beets possess anti-inflammatory properties and plenty of antioxidants, and pumpkin seeds can help prevent hypertension and protect against arthritis.
