EUROPE'S ABC OF SUPERFOODS

“Our Food Should Be Our Medicine And Our Medicine Should Be Our Food.” - Hippocrates 460 - 370 BC. In the course of this project, we will explore SUPERFOODS and see how we can introduce them into our daily diet through our brilliantly inspiring nutrient-packed recipes. We’ll create etwinning’s original alphabet of SUPERFOODS keeping always in mind...

Dear all, I have just looked at our brainstorming of superfoods and added a table that shows the present situation.  I suggest Spain to keep watermelon but in the latin form --> xigua. then the only letter that is not represented would be "J" - can anyone do e.g. "jasmine tea" , "japaleno peppers" or something else with "J"?
