The power of blueberries

Yes, it’s a fruit so in moderation of course, but blueberries are packed with antioxidants to guard against damage to cells, and muscles and are important for cardiovascular and brain health. As these guys are also fibre rich they aid in digestion, a bonus for a healthy gut!

Leafy greens

Dark leafy greens are vital to a healthy diet. This is a no brainer. Spinach and Kale are low calorie, nutrient dense options to help promote liver and digestive health and are also full of antioxidants. Leafy greens also contain vitamins A, C, and K, folate, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron. They are great for detoxing the body too!

Wild Salmon

There is nothing better than a baked salmon dinner and not many nutritionists disagree! Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can help reduce the risks for depression. It’s also loaded with amino acids for toned muscles and energy! Try to pick wild salmon as it tends to have less toxins that farmed salmon, and as always everything in moderation. Due to the mercury levels in larger fish, aim for two servings a week and no more.

Quinoa

Quinoa is a great alternative to white rice as it contains important nutrients like magnesium and fibre. It’s naturally gluten free and is a great plant based protein! It contains all the essential amino acids and also contains vitamin B which is great for your skin amongst other things!
