It’s that time of the year when we’re all talking detox foods and evoking upon health kicks and we’re opting to improve our well-being by the way of superfoods, which are packed with nutritional benefits that do everything from prevent diseases to keep your mind sharp.

So, let us introduce you to a few easy ways to incorporate superfoods into your daily diets that’ll have you reaping the benefits before you even know it.

Chia Seeds

Kick start your day by reaping the benefits of a superfood. Simply sprinkle a few chia seeds into your cereal et voilĂ  you’ve got a breakfast that’s rich in vitamins, protein, fibre, and essential omega-3 fatty acid that your body can’t produce alone. Health benefits? It’s great for the heart, land lowers both your cholesterol and blood pressure. 



If you’re dieting it’s easy to become afraid of eating fats but as long as you’re eating the right kinds of fats, in moderation of course, it’s fine. Opt for avocados which contain healthy monounsaturated fats that will also keep you feeling full and melt away unwanted belly fat. – Bonus!

Nutritional Yeast

Make your salads a little tastier with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and its cheese like flavouring. It’s a rich source of vitamin B and protein which have made it a vegetarian’s go-to for years.


Coconut Oil

This is probably one of the easiest superfoods to adopt because it’s so versatile to use as day to day you can switch from your regular butter or olive oil whilst cooking. It gives your energy levels and immune system a boost, which is perfect for beating those winter colds.
It can also be used in plenty of sweet recipes too. Why not beat the January blues and treat yourself to some homemade honey and almond granola? Here’s our superfood recipe:
