Now more than ever the world has a huge need for healthy food & drinks. But, many of us may need help in boosting our immunity and nourishing our guts.
The current health crisis has forced us to take a second look at our diets and really delve into the whole “my body is a temple” thing. Which if you’re like us, can be a bit overwhelming to think about at first. In a market that’s saturated with fast food that’s so fast it’ll have your head spinning, it can be hard to tell ourselves that it’s time to start taking more care…Especially when these foods are available at our fingertips pretty much 24 / 7 (thanks a lot Maccas!).
It’s time to start taking a bit more care of ourselves.
Now we’re not saying go through your pantry and get everything out that looks remotely like an Oreo or bag of chips, or to go and meal prep every meal for the next fortnight (although if that’s what you want to do then don’t let us stop you). However, we ARE saying that you should start to implement food and drinks into your diet that are going to help boost your health, grow your immunity and have you feeling FAB!
To help out we’ve compiled a list of our favourite superfoods. All of these can be used in a range of different recipes, and some of them you may know from our blends!
Full of betacyanin, Beets can help to fight a range of diseases. They also have folate which helps fight against osteoporosis, colon cancer and birth defects.

2. Sweet Potato

Blueberries – similar to many of their delicious berry neighbours – have very high levels of antioxidants which help against inflammation and preventing or delaying cell damage.
Turmeric can serve as an anti-inflammatory, wound healer and digestive aid. Amazing, right?

7. Dark Chocolate
With high levels of anti-oxidants and flavonoids – which can improve memory, blood flow, skin smoothness and can suppress coughing – Dark chocolate is the perfect treat!
Figs have high levels of dietary fibre, calcium and potassium. A favourite for our smoothie bowls!
