Superfoods you should include in your diet

Posted by Health Boutique on

Superfoods are foods found naturally occurring in nature, low in calories and nutrient dense.  For their size, superfoods are rich in antioxidants, meaning we don’t have to eat a lot to get the benefits. 

Spirulina

Is one of the world’s highest known sources of protein, that’s right higher than any meat or other plant product.   Spirulina is a cultivated micro-algae that can be purchased in powders, juices and supplements. Add spirulina to your after workout supplement shake or even a scoop to your smoothies for a protein boost.

Bee Pollen

Bee pollen literally is the bee’s knees; a pollen ball that is carried by the bees legs is collected and harvested, resulting in bee pollen.  Bee pollen is high protein and nutritionally dense.  You can even add some water to bee pollen and add it as a antibacterial agent to cuts and sores.

Raw Cacao

Certified organic raw cacao powder does not partake the heating methods and processes that cocoa goes through.  Raw cacao is a natural source of antioxidants, magnesium and iron.  Cacao contains 14 times the antioxidants of red wine and 21 times more antioxidant power than green tea.

Goji Berries

For their size, goji berries pack quite a nutritional punch.  Higher in Vitamin C than most fruits, goji berries have a rich nutrient profile containing all the 18 amino acids and 21 trace minerals, a source of B group vitamins, vitamins A and E.  This tiny delicious fruit will boost any smoothie or be the perfect yoghurt and smoothie bowl topping.
