Super foods?

Hello everyone this is my first time in this forum. Recently when visiting my doctor he said to go home and research these so called "superfoods." I have been looking around everywhere and do not seem to understand what he is refering to. I guess what I am trying to say is what are these "superfoods" and what foods are universal that most CD patients can eat?

Thank you

Hello and welcome to the forum
I dont know if he was referring what is also called 'functional foods' Things like... I cant think of one off the top of my head. But basically they are food products which have added ingredients to give you something more. Like breakfast cereals are fortified with iron. Some yoghurt drinks have things in to lower cholesterol etc. I can imagine things like this would be good for us crohnies if we cant absorb things as well, it gives us a little bit extra in our diet. Oh another example is sports drinks, they have things in them to improve muscle function. Hope this helps!
