If you're looking to get a little healthier after drinking, binge-eating and sitting on the sofa over the festive period, you've come to the right place.

'Superfoods' are considered to have large amounts of nutrients that can boost health and well-being when you're feeling low in energy and run down.

In recent years, there's been a lot of debate on what consists of a superfood: Is kale healthier than spinach? Is quinoa just a food fad, or does it really the best grain out there? Our questions were endless.

Which is why we decided to round-up our favourite fruits, vegetables and other dishes (in no particular order) which research has proven to be rich in the vitamins, proteins and nutrients our bodies require daily. 

The good news is each one of these are easily accessible at your local supermarket and can be added into your daily meals, whether it's a hearty breakfast, refreshing lunch or hot dinner.

Take it as our new year gift to you, dear reader.
