For most people, having the time to prepare healthy, balanced meals every day isn’t realistic. Grabbing a quick bite on your lunch break is unlikely to involve nutrient-rich food, and there’s nothing better than sticking an M&S ready meal in the microwave after a long day. If you’re looking for a way to add a healthy spin to your daily routine, then take a look at this guide to some of the tastiest, easiest superfood’s to add into your diet!
Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past couple of years, you’ll know that avocado’s have become the holy grail of food trends. Instagram is flooded with photo’s of avocado art – where people transform their fruit into swirls and dainty patterns. Don’t worry if you don’t have the time or skill to reconstruct your food into a masterpiece though, as they still taste great in their natural form. Avocado’s contain high levels of vitamin E, vitamin C, and vitamin BC to name a few, along with a bunch of healthy fats. They’re also really filling, making them the perfect superfood to start the day with.
Containing the highest amount of antioxidants of all fruits and vegetables, it’s definitely worth popping some blueberries in your shopping trolley. Blueberries are full of nutrients and are great for blood pressure, heart health and brain function. It’s also a good idea to include blueberries in your post-workout smoothies, as studies that suggest they could help improve muscle recovery.
Chocolate addicts everywhere – you need this in your life. Cacao is basically chocolate in it’s purest form, before being processed and turned into cocoa. You can find cacao in the form of powder, butter or cacao nibs, and because it tastes so amazing, it’s really easy to add into your diet. I use cacao in smoothies and mixed into porridge, but there’s also a bunch of great recipes worth trying out, such as raw brownies and homemade healthy chocolate.
