View Full Version : Superfood Suggestions
I would like to try and incorporate a superfood into each meal (well lunch and dinner) for the children and us.
Can anyone tell me which fruits and vegetables are classed as superfoods (I know that sweet pots, tomatoes and blueberries are packed full of vits and anti oxidents), also I dont live in a big city so the more *way out there* ones like sea weed etc I dont have access too, I have a very bog standard co-op and tesco.
Beans: A great low-fat, low-calorie source of protein and an easy way to help control your weight and your blood sugar.
Blueberries: The best food on the planet to preserve a young brain as we mature.
Broccoli: The best food on the planet to prevent cancer.
Oats: A sure-fire way to lower your cholesterol.
Oranges: The most readily available source of vitamin C, which in turn lowers the rate of most causes of death in this country, for example, heart disease and cancer.
Pumpkin: Loaded with phytonutrients, which keep our skin young and help prevent damage from sunlight.
Wild salmon: A guaranteed way to lower your risk for cardiac-related death.
Soy: The only complete vegetarian source of protein.
Spinach: The best food on the planet to prevent cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, thus ensuring a lifetime of good vision.
Tea -- green or black: The easiest and cheapest no-calorie way to avoid heart disease and cancer.
Tomatoes: One of the easiest ways for men to avoid prostate cancer is the consumption of tomatoes and tomato-based products.
Skinless turkey breast: The leanest meat source of protein on the planet.
Walnuts: Consuming walnuts is an easy, tasty way to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Yogurt: A tasty, easy way to boost your immune system.
Breakfast: porridge with soya milk, sprinkled with walnuts, cup of tea, and a yoghurt
Lunch: Turkey salad (tomatoes and spinach) sandwich, orange
Dinner: Salmon with broccoli, some kind of blueberry pudding.
In my local Julian graves it had a sign up with dried apricots, figs and prunes listed as superfoods.
They all could go in porridge, or as a snack. Apricots in couscous go well. Prunes with custard.
Pancake thank you sooooooooo much:flowers: :flowers: :flowers:
Sparkliness thanks for that I had no idea that lovely sticky sweet treats like that were classed as superfoods!
