Have you ever heard of something called Superfoods? Well, they’re super awesome, and today you’re going to use your super powers to explore the Internet and find out all that you can about Superfoods.

After you’ve decided on your favorite superfood, you’re going to find a recipe that includes it that we can make here in the kitchen labs. Then we’ll vote as a class on our favorite, and go make it together! This will be an “Iron Chef” competition. Below you will find an outline that the group should follow for the slide presentation.  One person in the group should create the PowerPoint and share it with each member in the group and also share it with me by March 20th so that I can see your progress on the presentation as the group works.
