This fish is packed with vitamin B, omega-3 fatty acids, and lean protein. The cholesterol superfood is good for your heart and can help you meet you weight goals. Flavor the salmon with another superfood like garlic. Grill it, bake it, broil it or use it as a delicious meat replacement on your burger.
Next time you’re looking for a super side, choose quinoa. It’s a vegetable, but has the texture of a grain. Quinoa has enough iron to replace less authentic sources like rice, and it’s a meatless source of protein too. As for the taste, you can make it what you want by adding broth, vegetables, herbs and spices or even fruit.
Blueberries, Acai Berries, Goji Berries
Next time you’re craving a sweet treat, go for the berries first. Berries are easy to love and good for the body too. One thing that makes them so super is their reputation as antioxidants. Add them to your quinoa to liven it up.
