It’s easy to feel inspired at a health shop. The superfoods are literally jumping off the shelves, screaming EAT ME, EAT ME. What you may not realise, is that your store cupboard at home is actually full of superfoods that will make your family healthy. Here’s the hitlist:
Filled with vitamin C and antioxidents, tinned tomatoes are hugely beneficial for the whole family. Even better, the nutrients from tomatoes are more easily absorbed when cooked! To make a simple pasta sauce, fry a clove of garlic in a little olive oil before pouring in a tin of tomatoes. Simmer for ten minutes over a low heat, finish with a drop of Balsamic vinegar and, DONE!
Sardines are ultimate brain food, rich in omega 3 and calcium. Heat and eat over some lightly toasted sourdough for lunch in minutes.
Rich in iron and antioxidents, stir fry your greens in a little garlic and finish with some soy sauce and sesame oil for a superfood stir fry.
Good for heart health and maintaining healthy blood pressure, dark chocolate actually helps to regulate cravings for sweets too. Bonus!
Great for indigestion, and a concentrated form of calcium, natural yoghurt is a high protein treat. Try marinating chicken in yoghurt before cooking for ultra tender meat.
