When it comes to superfoods Kale is one of the most healthy, unattractive looking heroes. Sure, it is low in calories, high in fibre and has zero fat…but there are other superfoods that are just as incredible but don’t get as much credit. At least not yet.
Pinterest data has shown that we are getting curious about a few new superfoods; turmeric, acai, matcha and chia.
These berries contain antioxidants, fibre and heart-healthy fats. It is also believed they aid in weightloss thanks to their ability to “reduce negative effects of a high-fat diet”.
Matcha tea may look (and smell) like blended grass, but it is the super food of all super foods. It is high in antioxidants, burns calories, detoxifies the body, fortifies the immune system and other incredible things.
These little seeds are nutrient dense and pack a punch when it comes to energy. They are also said to keep you fuller for longer, which is great. Add these bad boys to your porridge, baking and smoothies.
This is set to be the biggest wellness trend of 2017, although most of us have already hoped on the bandwagon. This orange superfood is known for fighting inflammation, something that is a bigger issue in our lives than many of us realised. Inflammation is the connection between many daily problems from acne and bloating to arthritis.
A notable mention to this healthy ingredient that can also make your food beautiful.
