Superfood Series – “Lucuma”, Sweet Gluten-Free Goodness

    From Dr. LJ’s Superfood Series with recipe for Coconut Plantain Cookies

Superfoods are foods that are exceptionally high in essential nutrients. Some examples of these that you may already know are blueberries, salmon, almonds, walnuts and organic apples.

These nutritional powerhouses are extremely popular with raw foodists,  as they offer great taste and variety to the lifestyle, along with particularly potent vitamins and minerals.

It surpasses even chocolate and vanilla as the favorite ice cream flavor in most of South America—and even some European countries!
