Superfoods are here to stay. These nutrient-packed powerhouses are an unmissable addition to your healthy diet.
What Are Superfoods
Superfoods have been around for quite some time now and still they remain a popular food category. Packed with high-quality nutrients, that are often hard to get from your regular diet alone, the best superfoods are a valuable addition to your nutrition plan to ensure you get your daily dose of nutrients. Superfoods refer to specific ingredients and are available in a range of products, from plant and fruit extracts, to algae powders and fibres that are known for their nutritional claims. Plus, they taste delicious; adding just one or two superfoods can turn a bland smoothie into something spectacular. Superfoods are suitable for both men and women and you can choose the best superfoods depending on your lifestyle and preferences. All superfoods stocked by Body & Fit are designed to improve health and wellbeing.
List of Top Superfoods
The Body & Fit range of the top superfoods encompasses everything from chia seeds to goji berries. Whether it’s wholefoods, plant extracts, fruit extracts, algae powders and fibres – superfoods are known for their nutritional claims. They might be low in fat or sugar or, better still, high in protein and fibre. They could also be a good source of vitamins and minerals. Prepared in powder format they are a great way to add additional nutrition; some superfoods are even used for weight loss. Mix them into your cereal, porridge, smoothies or baking recipes, like pancakes; be creative. Superfoods make a great contribution to a healthy diet.
Get Creative with Superfoods
Superfoods make the perfect addition to any diet, whether you are looking for a little something to increase your energy levels, or simply want a convenient snack that is packed with vitamins and minerals. The list of superfoods is endless and so are the ways in which you can integrate them into your diet. Superfoods are a popular ingredient to almost any healthy recipe. They can be added to delicious energy balls (think: cacao or chia), make a colourful contribution to power-up salads (seeds and berries) and do very well in your shake or smoothie – chlorella and spirulina are a popular choice here, but virtually anything goes. You can even add them to your breakfast; oats and porridge get a superfood upgrade with flaxseed, chia or cacao. Mix-and-match to your liking! Feel like something sweet? Go for benefit-packed bakes and add your favourite superfoods to muffins, pancakes and bread. Some flax seeds added to a muffin makes all the difference or give your banana bread a kick with the addition of chia seeds and cacao. If you don’t feel like cooking or baking, you can carry a portion of superfoods like nuts or berries in your kit bag so you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious snack before, during or after exercise and on the go; they are a great pick-me-up when you’re feeling low in energy.
