“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...





Some of the SUPERFOODS have always been popular and honoured in the diet and some of them even became parts of old customs and traditions. Why don´t we share some of them here? Pls, see and read more in the subpages.
