5 Amazing Superfoods You Probably Already Have In Your Fridge
Forget kale and goji berries: these foods are just as chocker with nutrients, and we'll bet they're already a regular on your grocery list too.
Hitting up your local health store on the reg to buy some seriously saintly (and super pricey) superfoods that are supposedly jammed-packed full of bod-nourishing vits and minerals? Being healthy doesn’t require an arm full of unpronounceable fruits, veggies and seeds.
Nope, here are five foods you’ve probably stock-piled in your fridge, that definitely deserve superfood status. Bonus: They won’t cost you an arm and leg either.
Aside from the fact that they taste delish, and you can literally eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, eggs pack a serious protein punch and are loaded with essential amino acids. An egg-rich diet can help with weight loss, increase muscle mass, lower blood pressure and optimise your bone health.
They’re loaded with pectin which is great for detoxing, and have one of the highest water to fibre ratios of any fruit. Apples also promote weight loss, and can increase your endurance during exercise thanks to oxygen-boosting anti-oxident quercertin. We won’t mind sticking to that “one a day” adage then.
Spinach, baby greens, lettuce and parsley are all loaded with vits and minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, folate, and betaine to name a few, meaning they’re nutrient-dense and low cal.
Full fat natural yoghurt
Eating a 125g pot of natural yoghurt ever day has been found to reduce your risk of obesity by up to a fifth. It can also help to modify bad bacterias in the gut. You should ditch the low fat versions though; they’re loaded with excess sugar.
Super juicy, grapefruits are loaded with Vitamin C and are a natural cold-fighter. They’ve been known to reduce free radical damage too, and reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer and stroke. They’re low-cal, a natural metabolism-booster and a firm favourite among the Victoria’s Secret angels too apparently.
