Have you ever wondered what people mean when they talk about ‘superfoods’? Fear not, we’re here to clear things up. Get ready to learn what superfoods are, the science behind them, and what you should be eating.
Superfoods aren’t new – the term might be, but superfoods have been around since the beginning of time. They are the minimally processed, natural, healthy day to day foods that you already know and love.
They are nutrient dense and packed with vitamins. In a world that has become caught up in a mess of sugar and salt-filled junk food full to the brim with E numbers and other toxic ingredients, we’re glad to hear that there’s an alternative.
Superfoods include foods you already know about. They are easy to find, and you probably already eat them without realising. They cover everything from berries to vegetables to grains; there’s no excuse for leaving them out of your diet as they are readily available in most supermarkets.
But what foods are we talking about? A few notable mentions include:
These are foods that are high in antioxidants, fibre, and vitamins such as B6 and C, as well as containing magnesium to help with relaxation. So instead of takeout to ‘de-stress’ on a Friday night, try incorporating carbohydrates into your meal to unwind properly.
It couldn’t be easier to incorporate superfoods into your diet! At Soulmate Food, our freshly-made dishes are full of the ingredients you need to feel your best. Whether you need a midnight snack or energy boosting breakfast, our specially-made meals will leave your co-workers green with envy.
Breakfast doesn’t have to be dull; if porridge isn’t waking you up in the morning, our Aussie Omelette might do the trick. Packed with protein-filled halloumi, delicious veggies, and superfood favourite avocado, our fluffy egg omelette makes breakfast at work a little easier.
Snacking at your desk shouldn’t have to be a packet of crisps or a chocolate bar; skip the sugar and salt by trying our decadent coconut and juicy mango bowl with blueberry chia jam and moreish goji fudge bites. How delectable does that sound?
At the end of a long workday, it’s far too easy to order a takeaway on your way home, but this sort of food won’t help you to feel better and will probably lead to stomach pains and a restless night. Soulmate Food has put together a mouth-watering range of meals for you to sink your teeth into. Much better than a greasy burger, don’t you think?
