MEET THE

Superfoods

AVOCADOS

Avocados are nutritional gems, they are rich in sources of monounsaturated fat, a fat your body can easily burn for energy. They also help your body absorb fat-soluble nutrients from other foods. Avocados provide several health-boosting nutrients, including potassium, vitamin E, B vitamins, and folic acid.

TOMATOES

The beautifully sweet but also acidic flavour of tomato makes for a tasty treat. Tomatoes are an excellent source of lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamin C as well as vitamins A, E, and B vitamins, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus. 

PEPPERS

Peppers are excellent sources of vitamins C and A–antioxidants. They also contain vitamin B6, folic acid, and fibre–all of which can help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

BLACK BEANS

These delicious dark beans are jam-packed with many of the most essential nutrients your body needs to perform at peak levels from protein to fibre, iron, and antioxidants.

Which Superfoods will you add to your meal?

SWEET POTATO

Lower in starch than other carbohydrates but packed with nutrients and a delicious sweet flavour. Sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest vegetables available. They are also good sources of the anti-inflammatory nutrients, vitamins A and C, making them an excellent food choice. Ranking low on the glycemic index means they also have less effect on blood glucose levels.

RED CABBAGE

With its beautiful deep purple tone, red cabbage adds an element of colour to any meal. It also contains more vitamin C than an orange, making red cabbage one of the top immune-boosting vegetables. It’s high in antioxidants, which are hugely important compounds linked to reducing cancer and heart disease.
