5 Superfoods Found at Costa Vida

5 Superfoods Found at Costa Vida

Superfoods have been a popular topic in the health and nutrition world lately. Names like spirulina, goji, and acai have created an altered image of superfoods as ingredients only found in expensive specialty stores or in the depths of tropical rainforests. But that’s not exactly true. Some superfoods can be found much closer to home and at affordable prices. Incorporating these foods into your diet will strengthen your body with vitamins and antioxidants that fight cancer, support heart health, boost immunity, and more.

Everyone can have access to these healthy powerhouse ingredients. They are closer than you think and you may already be eating some of them! We’re showing you five of our favorites and how we love to serve them.
