5 things we eat everyday

Posted on 21st February 2017 in Food & Water

Rather than restricting or focusing on foods you shouldn’t eat we have made a list of the foods we include in our diet everyday. It’s a brilliant way to provide some positive focus on your diet whilst ensuring you are fuelled daily with some of the healthiest foods you can possibly eat.

Lemon

Not just a great source of vitamin c, lemon juice is also packed full of potassium, copper and magnesium.

Lemon water is so brilliant first thing in the morning as it benefits the enzyme functions in your body, stimulating the liver and flushing out toxins. This will help to aid digestion and bloating.

We use it: in our green smoothies and as a refreshing way to season our quinoa salads.

Turmeric

Just one-quarter teaspoon of ground turmeric each day has numerous health benefits, most prominently cancer prevention and anti-inflammatory properties (particularly beneficial for athletes!)

We use it: to add a delicious warmth to our reheat and eat curry, and in our fresh ‘The Cure’ smoothie.

Spinach

Greens are the healthiest foods you can eat, in terms of micronutrients per calorie. Spinach has a nutritional profile that benefits almost every part of your body. Packed with protein, iron, vitamins and minerals it’s great for your heart, hair, skin and bone health.

We use it: in our green smoothies and as a base for our salad bowls.

Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are a great way to boost fibre in your diet: just a single tablespoon of ground flaxseed provides 2.3 grams of fiber. They are also a rich source of micronutrients–including essential heart-healthy omega 3 fats and antioxidants that can reduce the risk of several health conditions, like heart disease and cancer.

We use them: in our homemade granola.

Berries

Absolutely packed with cancer-fighting antioxidants berries can also slow the aging process and prevent heart disease, among many, many other good things.

We use them: in so many ways! Our Acai bowls, berry boost smoothies and blueberry breakfast pots.
