2015 Superfoods: Are You on Trend?

Step aside, acai berry, quinoa and ancient grains! While you’re still considered superfoods, there’s a new gang in town… Looking for the who’s who of superfoods for 2015? Check out our top 5 to see if you’re on trend:

Kalettes: If kale and brussel sprouts had a baby… then they made the kalette! Kalettes are a hybrid mix of these two power greens. With a milder taste and all the vitamins and minerals kale provides (Vitamin C, K, folate and carotenoids) this one might just be the perfect addition to your morning smoothies.

Cauliflower: Now starring in recipes from Alfredo sauce to pizza crust, cauliflower boasts tons of health benefits… It’s full of vitamins and minerals (including 77% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C), and detoxifying, with anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits. Looks like it’s time to get creative with cauliflower!

Matcha tea powder: Make room in your pantry for matcha green tea powder. With all the health properties of green tea, the powder form allows you to ingest the entire leaf, rather than just the brewed water. In fact, it contains 10 times the nutritional value and antioxidants of regular green tea. It’s matcha tea time…

Pistachios: If you’re a health nut, pistachios should be on your list – they’re high in protein, fibre and healthy monounsaturated fat. Eaten in moderation, salt-free pistachios can help raise your levels of good cholesterol, so go nuts!

Coconut flour: If you’re baking up a storm, give (gluten-free) coconut flour a try. Not only does it add a very subtle coconut flavour, but it also contains the highest amounts of protein and fibre of any other type of flour. Give your baking a boost with this healthier option!
