The top 14 EVERYDAY superfoods that will help you live to 100 years

We know that not all foods are created equally: yup, a cucumber and a can of cola are certainly NOT going to do the same things to your body. 

However, and while 'superfoods' has been the dietary buzz word of the last few years, having to trek across town to try and source a €4-a-pop portion of something you can't quite pronounce is just tiresome. 

Actually, it's positively enough to make us reach for a large chips and a garlic bread with cheese combo.

Fear not! Because many truly fantastic superfoods are totally affordable and readily available on everyday supermarket shelves.

Here, SHEmazing! rounds up the 14 best ones that will help you celebrate your 100th birthday. Tuck in!
