Superfoods are a quick and easy way to get some serious nutrients into your body, yet stepping into the world of superfoods can be intimidating. I’ve wandered through the health aisles of the market in a daze… wondering if these so-called super foods could possibly be worth the super price.
Seriously, how super could they actually be?
Turns out, pretty super. So let me break it down for you…
In short, superfoods are great for your body and great for our world. They’re all natural and are filled with many nutrients that our bodies crave but don’t receive. And because they are non-GMO + organic that means they are coming from hard working farmers who take care of their crops and the earth in sustainable ways.
Over the years I’ve prob tried them all, and have quickly narrowed them down to my “go-to favs.” Today, I’m gonna share all that goodness with you in so you can be empowered with these plant-based gems.
Here are my top 10 superfood smoothie boosters:
1) Chia Seeds
If you are looking for a green smoothie staple then you have come to the right place. These do-it-all superseeds are good for your head with their high content of omega fatty acids that increase healthy brain function, but have also proven to be good for your heart by fighting high cholesterol and heart disease. They even boast a wide variety of nutrients, such as: protein, fiber, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, iron, calcium and antioxidants. Use up to three tablespoons of chia seeds in your smoothie.
2) Coconut Oil
If you are exercising for weight loss, then coconut oil will be an important ingredient for you. The fatty acids in this superfood fight body fat by converting into energy that boosts metabolism as opposed to animal derived saturated fats that add body fat. Use one tablespoon of coconut oil in your green smoothie for breakfast.
