We often think of superfoods as some exotic ingredients that we wouldn’t even be able to get our hands on. Luckily, there are actually plenty of superfoods available that you can incorporate into your diet easily. Any raw fruit, nut or vegetable is full of healthy ingredients on their own, but we have a list of a few that stand out in terms of going that extra stretch to give you all the nutrients you are looking for!
This one really isn’t a secret. We all know that we should be eating out greens! Not only are they are full of calcium, magnesium and potassium, they also contain vitamins C, A and K. Check out our recipe for Blueberry Walnut Spinach Salad or this Green Smoothie recipe for simples ways to get more greens into your diet.
Yes, chocolate can be a superfood! Raw Cacao is the purest form of chocolate, without any milk or sugar added to it. It is a good source of fibre and iron and there’s good reason to believe that this superfood may help ease depression, reduce stress and lower cholesterol. Just another reason to love chocolate. If you’re looking for ways to add raw cacao into your diet ( who isn’t?!) try this recipe for homemade vegan chocolate bars!
Hemp is an amazing superfood. It’s packed with antioxidants and protein. You can use hemp oil in your salad dressings and keep some hemp hearts for sprinkling on top of salads or adding into smoothies. This hemp seed pesto recipe is a perfect way to pair hemp with your pasta dishes!
Superfoods are always great, but like with any trend – they can come and go. Venture out and try something new, but make sure you come back to the tried an tested! Sometimes, that’s as simple as ensuring you’re fuelling your body with the protein it needs and deserves! Our FREE protein-packed recipe guide can help with that:
