#fitfordisney – Superfood Favourites

Superfoods are really becoming all the rage, and while some of the claims made about some of these foods might be a little exaggerated, personally I think there is nothing wrong with adding good food to your diet!

No, I’m not telling you to only eat celery, or that goji berries are going to make you skinny overnight; superfoods primarily get their powers from the anti-oxidants they contain, that work behind the scenes to keep you nice and healthy.

I’m also not recommending you eat all of them, just find those that work for you and that you enjoy eating, otherwise healthy eating becomes a chore. Today, I’m going to share a few of my favourites:

1. Matcha

Matcha is a highly concentrated green tea; personally I use the powder from Teapigs. I love it because one little scoop is packed with goodness, and I add it to my morning juice for a subtle kick of green!

2. Blueberries

These little guys are my heroes! I add them to cereal, porridge, yogurt, and for a treat, frozen blueberries are great to crunch on.

3. Spinach

I used to think spinach was the worst thing in the world, until I actually started eating it! Now, I add it to lasagne, pasta sauces, and also really like it raw as a side to fish or steak.

4. Broccoli

Bet’cha didn’t know how good broccoli really is for you? My latest favourite broccoli use is in my morning omelette!

Are you a superfoodie?

  1. I started eating broccoli a few years back after I read that it was proven to help arthritis. Greens have sooo many nutritional benefits that you wouldnt believe!

    I used to hate all vegetables and good nutritional food – now I try my best to be healthy, if only Pizza and Chips were as good for you as Spinach!
