Superfoods You Already Have At Home

As you ladies know, I’m passionate about healthy eating and fuelling my body with nutrients! While I’m very lucky here in Australia to have access to lots of delicious fruit and vegetables, I know for some of my BBG girls, it can be difficult, or even expensive, to buy some of these ingredients. So, I wanted to mention a few nutritional powerhouses, or superfoods, you may already have at home.

While there isn’t really a scientific definition of a superfood, it generally refers to a food that is nutritionally rich and packs a punch with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants or polyphenols (micronutrients that help to prevent damage caused by free radicals). By adding these to your meals, you can boost the nutritional content and hopefully save on your grocery bill too!

These are a few everyday superfoods you already have at home, or you could add to your shopping list!

Avocado

Not only is it one of my favourites, but avocado is also a superfood! Whether you eat avocado on your toast or mashed up as guacamole, your body gets a dose of healthy fats, dietary fibre and lots of other nutrients. There’s so many reasons avocado is good for you and should be a staple in your diet. 

Berries

Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries) are great superfoods to have on hand! Add them to smoothies, stir some into Greek yoghurt or just eat them on their own. 

Broccoli

Broccoli is rich in vitamin A, which can help boost your immune system, and can also help support healthy vision and reduce the risk of heart disease. Broccoli also provides your body with folic acid and vitamin C, a combination which has been linked to reduced risk of stroke and some types of cancer. For a hearty dose of these green superfoods, try making this Broccoli and Kale Green Soup!

Lemon

A little fresh lemon juice not only adds flavour to your meals, but it can also help increase the amount of iron your body absorbs! Because of the vitamin C lemon contains, it can help to keep your immune system strong too. 

Nuts and seeds

Many varieties of nuts and seeds are packed with heart-healthy fats, as well as vitamins and minerals. Nuts and seeds are great for snacking on, adding to salads or mixing into your stir fry! I like to pick a few superfood seeds and add them to my meals for a bit of crunch AND nutrients. 

Pumpkin

Don’t just save pumpkin for Halloween! It’s a source of alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, antioxidants which can help to reduce free radical damage and may help to prevent cancer. Pumpkins are also naturally high in fibre and vitamin A. 

There you have it girls! A list of superfoods you can easily add to your shopping list, or you may even have some of these superfoods in your pantry!
