Greens and fruits packed with vital minerals to help detoxify your body, reduce your risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases, lower cholesterol, and more, are commonly called Superfoods. Think broccoli, kale, pomegranate, and pineapple, which are filled with the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that your body can effectively absorb.
28 Superfood Recipes For Every Day, a new e-book from the Institute for Vibrant Living, offers four sections of recipes incorporating superfoods. You may remember IVL from its e-book of delicious heart healthy recipes, so we’re excited to share its newest e-book today. Here are four of our favorites!

|STRAWBERRY SOUP is a perfect recipe for spring lunch or a light dinner. Served chilled, the recipe calls for strawberries, orange juice, yogurt, vanilla extract, and low-fat milk. “This was the first time I had strawberry soup, and boy, was it yummy!
