What is a super food? And why are we suddenly being pushed into eating as many of them as we can? Google says a super food is ‘a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.’ So it’s basically just a really healthy food that’s going to do a lot of good stuff for our body? Great!
We want to make super foods more fun and accessible for everyone, so we are going to give you some amazing recipes to try! Because salads and shakes are not at all exciting, and we LOVE good food.
Blueberries are one of the BEST super foods you can eat! And they are so yummy too! Valued for its high levels of antioxidants, some nutritionists believe that if you make only one change to your diet, it should be to add blueberries. They are also PACKED with vitamin C and have been proven to help combat high blood pressure!
Here are some yummy recipes to try using blueberries:
Blueberry Banana Smoothie
Blueberries (Frozen for best results)
This recipe is super easy, just wizz everything up in the blender, adding more honey for sweetness, but just do it to your taste! You can experiment by adding different flavours such as Flax Seed or Spinach!
Top Tip: Freezing your fruit before blending will mean your smoothies will be nice and chilled!
Blueberry Protein Pancakes
3 egg whites
A scoop of protein powder (of your choice)
Blueberries (as many, to your taste)
A cup of oatmeal
Blend the oatmeal in a blender until it becomes a flour consitency. Add the banana, eggs and protein powder and blend some more. Mix in the blueberries using a spoon so they stay whole. Use two spoonfuls of the mixture per pancake and fry in a skillet.
Top Tip: These pancakes are very yummy with a drizzle of agave syrup!
