What could they be?  Do you know all 5 Superfoods?  Let’s see if you do.  If you don’t know one of the 5 Superfoods, try it out and see if it fits into your lifestyle.  Yass, indulge yourself!  I’m not kidding just look at how delicious these Superfoods look.  Not only do these look gorgeous but they’re really good for you too!  Most are chock full of antioxidants, minerals and other goodies.  Your body will thank you.

For fun, I love trying new food and smoothies.  Yes, it is my job but I love it!  You know, I was drinking green smoothies and making kombucha before it was a thing and everybody thought I was the weirdo.  But now everybody and their grandmother is doing it!  So without further ado…Here are the supers!

The 1st Superfood is my favourite, Matcha Green Tea.

In Japan, we have the world’s longest living people.  The city Okinawa is known as “The Island of Immortals.”  How cool is that?!  I wonder what Canada is called.  Oh yes, of course.  Google says it’s “The Land of Maple Syrup.”  It can’t be anymore Canadian than that.  Anyway, back to Japan and Matcha Green Tea.  Could Matcha Green Tea be helping Okinawans live longer?  Can’t hurt to try, can it?  I’d love to live to the ripe age of 100.  Hello, Okinawa!

The 2nd Superfood is Chia Seeds.

Chia Seed Pudding

How incredible does this pudding look?  Surprisingly, it’s super easy to make the night before and enjoy in the morning.  All you do, is soak chia seeds in coconut milk and they expand 12 times their own size creating a gelatinous consistency perfect for pudding.  They contain many bone supporting minerals and omega 3’s.  What’s not to like?

The 3rd Superfood is Quinoa.

Quinoa Mason Jar Meal

This plant food in mason jar meals?  How fun and appetizing!  You can use it as a nutrient-rich rice substitute.  Most importantly, this seed is a complete protein with all nine amino acids and it is gluten-free, so everyone can eat it.  It is also known to the Inca’s as the “mother of all grains.”  Doesn’t that sound a-mazing?!  They knew it all along.

The 4th Superfood is Garlic.

Purple Garlic

Mmm, just look at all the possibilities with these purple garlic cloves.  You could whip up some zoodles and throw in a couple of garlic cloves.  How delicious does that sound!  On top of that, garlic is perfect for keeping up your immunity in the cold winter months.

The 5th Superfood is Ginger.

What, that pink stuff beside your sushi?  Yasss, that’s what I’m talking about!  It will warm you up, keep your food down, help with digestion and support your immune system.  You can add some ginger to your lemon tea if you are not feeling well and feel the effects of it.  Ginger is an age old traditional Superfood worthy of this title.

Enjoy this coming winter and stay healthy with all these Supers!  Let me know which Super is your favourite?
