The temps may be heating up, but that doesn’t stop healthy and delicious superfoods from growing. From fire engine red strawberries to sunset orange apricots, here are some in-season superfoods for the month of May.
During the month of May, strawberries are at their best. Just one serving of this summer fruit contains more vitamin C than an orange and offers protection against heart attacks, cognitive decline and skin damage from UV rays.
Though small in size, peas are packed with good-for-you nutrients. These little guys are loaded with fiber and vitamins A, C and K, which are necessary to maintain healthy blood and bones.
Just one single apricot contains a good portion of your daily A and C vitamins, plus some extra fiber, iron and potassium.
Just like it’s cousin, broccoli, cauliflower comes from the cruciferous vegetable family that’s known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Research points to possible protection against cancer and stroke if cauliflower is consumed.
