If you are quite tired of hearing about the health benefits provided by broccoli and all the other ‘popular’ superfoods and you do not want to include the same fruits and veggies in your menu over and over again – then it is time to give your taste buds a break. Today, there are a lot of exotic fruits and uncommon vegetables which belong to the health foods and superfoods category.
