5 Healthy Superfoods That You Shouldn’t Eat Too Often

Who hasn’t tried a superfood? There are so many different sorts out there at the moment, and every year people tend to ‘discover’ a new must-eat product that gets hyped up and everyone is hooked on. Most of these superfoods are very healthy and good for you in moderation, but can be really harmful in large amounts. We picked 5 of our favorite superfood that are very delicious and healthy, but also, you shouldn’t eat too often because less is more:


My absolute favorite in the list. I literally could eat salmon every day, in sushi, grilled, in pasta, on bread, it is almost delicious with everything.

Salmon is one of the most popular fish, which means most salmon you find in stores is farmed, which means it might include some extra ingredients you probably don’t want to find in your salmon. Farmed salmon contains a larger amount of pollution than wild salmon. But even when you only buy wild salmon, there is always a chance that it comes from polluted waters (thanks to us humans), and large amounts of wild or farmed fish can put you at risk of consuming chemicals.


Most people replace rice and pasta with healthy quinoa, a superfood that contains twice as much fiber as other grains. But as with anything, too much quinoa can lead to less than good side effects! Eating too much quinoa will lead to too much fiber intake, which reduces your body’s ability to absorb key nutrients. And because quinoa is so rich in fiber, always make sure you drink enough water as well.



One of the most popular foods from the past few years. It is known for its healthy fats, but because it’s so high in fat, it comes with a high dose of calories in a relatively small size. One avocado can contain 325 calories, so eating it too often can easily lead to weight gain.


 A product loved by bloggers, coconut oil is the most popular and healthy oil at the moment, but even with something as healthy as coconut oil, you should take it in moderation and treat it like you would any other oil. Because just like any other oil, increasing the amounts of coconut oil you take, will only lead to weight gain.


Who doesn’t love hummus? Whether it is on a sandwich or in a wrap, it is that extra healthy ingredient that makes everything better.However, ready made hummus that you buy in stores often contains a lot of unhealthy and unnecessary oils that make it less healthy than you believe it to be. Homemade hummus is way better than the in-store one, and always keep in mind that one portion of hummus is 2 tablespoons and not half a pack.

  1. Such an amazing post! I’m sharing this with my boyfriend who uses wayyyy tooooo much coconut oil with everything haha


  2. Good list, although I can’t imagine anyone eating too much quinoa – it’s quite filling and boring on its own! Plus you’re totally right about hummus – my own recipe is definitely a much cleaner version: https://www.curiouslyconscious.com/2015/02/the-best-vegan-raw-hummus-recipe.html

  3. Thank you so much for this post because I’ve been eating Avocado like every single day thinking I was being super healthy



  4. I disagree with this list… As long as salmon is bought fresh, 2 x a week is absolutely recomended to meet omega requirements.. Quinoa shouldnt be eaten everyday but not for the reasons noted, but instead because it is a grain and it is hard for some people to digest(red quinoa is easier to digest). avocado should be eaten everyday for its fat content and amazing nutrients, as long as you arent eating other bad foods i dont see why you would refrain from a superfood. coconut should be taken everyday ( i like to take mine every night 2tbsp) not only has amazing anti-viral/ anti-bacterial properties but also nutrients that the body needs (again, quality fat for your brain). No experience on hummus ..

    Anyways, everything in moderation will always stand true. But these are actually superfoods that will make more good to you, than harm.
