Why are Superfoods so Super? 0

It’s in our name – we love superfoods! We eat, drink, live and breathe them!

We talk about how great they are, the benefits on your body and how to incorporate them effortlessly in to your diet (it really is that easy!). 

With so many to choose from, where do you even start? Let us help you with some of our favourites!

Quinoa

The health benefits related to this little seed can range from reducing blood pressure (due to the fibre) to aiding weight loss by making you feel fuller for longer. It is also rich in iron keeping our red blood cells healthy and magnesium which can alleviate migraines.

Enjoy this little bundle of health in a salad or, if you are looking for something a little more adventurous, try it for breakfast with scrambled eggs and avocado (get some early health points!

Blueberries 

It’s not enough that these little berries have no cholesterol in them, the high fibre content also helps to reduce cholesterol in the blood stream (decreasing the risk of heart disease).

On top of that, they are packed to the brim full of vitamins that supports heart health.

We love to eat these berries by themselves however they are also a great addition to a morning smoothie!

Chia

We go on about this enough but we love Chia seeds. There is so much that is packed in to these little seeds from the HUGE amount of nutrients to the lack of calories to the high fibre and protein content helping you lose weight.

Indulge on these seeds in so many ways (smoothie, salad, soup...) but our favourite is leaving them to soak overnight in coconut milk and enjoy them the next day!

Green Tea

Claimed to be “the healthiest beverage on the planet”, it is loaded with antioxidants and packed full of nutrients. Not only can that lead to improved brain function but can also lower the risk of cancer.

We tend to enjoy this in its simplest form, as a drink. So, when you have 10 minutes, kick back and relax whilst you enjoy all the rich flavours!

Watermelon

This hugely hydrating fruit is great for a number of reasons which include potentially preventing cancer, improving heart health and lowering muscle inflammation. This is all down to the huge amount of nutrients and plant compounds packed in to this juicy treat!

Another one we like in its simplest form with no fuss but we are a bit partial to a watermelon drink (for when we are on the go!)
