But some foods have been classed as ‘superfoods’ because they are especially rich in health-promoting nutrients, antioxidants or phytochemicals (bioactive plant compounds) and therefore pack more of a nutritional punch than others. From:...
Good ol beef stew
Beef stew, originally a peasant dish to feed your family, is now popular in restaurants and for dinner party guests. Simmer away some beef shin or oxtail and tenderize it with the help of some good wine.
