You’ve heard about superfoods - things like blueberries, bok choy, lentils, spinach, kale and other leafy greens. They’re exceptionally healthy foods that offer an intense punch of vitamins and nutrients. Some are packed with antioxidants while others are full of healthy fat or even probiotics - each food has a unique set of benefits. There are lots of superfoods to choose from, and they’re all amazing - but why, exactly? Well, let’s review:
Superfoods are healthy, but that doesn’t mean they’re boring or bland. Popular superfood items include sweet potatoes, salmon, strawberries, asparagus, apples, greek yogurt and walnuts - all flavourful, enjoyable foods. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be a sacrifice! There are plenty of superfood options that treat your tastebuds as well as your body. Try our Black Bean Taco jar, which contains superfoods like black beans, brown rice, napa cabbage and cherry tomatoes.
Our Moroccan Tagine jar is another great superfood option, featuring sweet potato, spinach, ginger and bok choy.
You’ll Feel Fantastic
A superfood is defined by its health benefits - each one is a rich source of vitamins and nutrients - but it goes deeper than that. Eating well is good for your digestion, your sleep habits, your energy level - the list goes on and on! Think of the gross bloat and regret of a fast food binge - eating a delicious, superfood-charged meal has the opposite effect. Eat well and take on the world! Try our Veggie Showdown jar, which contains superfoods like garlic, spinach and pumpkin seeds. It will fill you up and tastes amazing!
You’ll Look Great, Too
You want to feel amazing on the inside, but looking good on the outside isn’t a bad thing either. Superfoods are a critical element of a healthy diet that results in a healthy body weight (something that makes you look AND feel great). Healthy fats, such as those found in salmon and avocado, can make your hair appear extra-lush and shiny. Antioxidants can help reduce inflammation, which will make skin appear less red and puffy. You may notice a bit of a healthy glow - something you definitely don’t see after chowing down on a burger and fries! Want to give it a try? Check out our Lively Lemon Ginger jar, which contains superfoods like edamame, kale, olive oil and (you guessed it) ginger.
Happy (and healthy) eating, everyone!
