Hello beautiful readers,
Wow, I think the start of February has been quiet a shift energetically for me and once again I am being brought back to self love and inner nourishment. Have you been feeling energetically unbalanced? I definitely think the theme here is balance and harmony. Loving , honoring and nurturing ourselves in the best way we can!
That inner nourishment means taking extra care of our physical health & wellbeing. So today I stopped over at our local health store and bought a bunch of Kale which inspired me to write this blog post on superfoods.
So what are superfoods ? A superfood is a nutrient rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and wellbeing.
Here are some of the common superfoods for you to explore:
Blueberries – Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants as well as vitamin C. There are also rich in phytonutrients and fibre. A handful of blueberries with breakfast is a great way to start the day!
Cinnamon– One of my favourite spices. Cinnamon has a no of great properties one of these being prompting healthy gut metabolism and is also good for UTI infections.
Flaxseeds – Flaxseeds also known as linseed have high levels of omega 3 , omega 3 is essential for healthy brain function and also helps fight depression. Flaxseeds are also a great source of dietary fibre, minerals like manganese, thiamine and magnesium.
Kale– Kale has great antioxidant benefits. It is also loaded with vitamin A to enhance urinary tract health. Kale is worth exploring in your Kitchen – add them to your smoothies or be creative with a Kale Salad!
Almonds – Almonds are a great way to get more calcium in the diet. It’s also a good source of protein. Almonds are great as a snack inbetween meals.
Salmon – Salmon is essential in the diet because of its high omega 3 content which makes it a great addition to your super meals😊
Wheatgrass – Wheatgrass is available in powder form. it has a high level of nutrients, essential amino acids and is loaded with clorophyll , vitamins and minerals.
Have a super time with these superfoods!
