Superfoods


What are they? And what makes them so super?

They don’t have any superpowers, but they do contain above average nutrients. Superfoods can be seeds, fruits or vegetables and in some cases meat, though not very often. If you’re looking for some healthy, nutrient-packed recipe ideas you’ve come to the right place!

Selecting Recipes

Here are a couple examples of how we would plan a day’s menu. Produce can go bad quick so try selecting recipes that have similar ingredients. This will save you from throwing out wasted food and you can prepare for more than one meal at a time. If you’re washing and tearing up kale for your morning smoothie you can prepare enough for your lunch. Similarly, on your day off you can roast beets or hard-cook eggs and then have them on hand to pack in your lunches.
