Superfoods that you will find in our kitchen

Superfoods
Superfoods, great food, power food. Called many terms, having great power. Extremely valuable food in terms of nutritional value, which has undoubtedly been booming for some time. Most importantly - superfoods are 100% natural and they get their super powers from nature.

Chia seeds

I have already written on Spanish sage on the blog here. In the post you will find not only the properties of this wonderful plant, but also recipes for delicious dishes. I love to eat these small grains mainly in the form of pudding or add a spoon to a glass of water. Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 acids, magnesium, calcium, iron, selenium and fiber. Chia pudding is great for long hours, which is why it is especially recommended for people on a diet. Such a dessert is not only low-calorie, but also delicious and healthy. Just 2 tablespoons chia seeds pour half a glass of milk (with us vegetable), mix and let stand for a minimum of 20 minutes. It's best to put the chia pudding in the fridge overnight and decorate it with fruit in the morning and add your favorite nuts. Such breakfast is a great dose of good energy.

Coconut Water

Water from inside the coconut is not only very tasty, but also healthy. Unfortunately, it is not the cheapest. A can of coconut water (without enhancers) costs about PLN 10. I really like to add coconut water to cocktails, but also drink instead of regular water (it is definitely tastier and better hydrates the body). Coconut water also contains minerals and electrolytes.

millet

I don't quite like its taste, but after a good treatment it can be really tasty. The key to its taste is thorough rinsing with warm water. Some also roast millet in a dry frying pan, but I never have time for it. It is enough for me to rinse it several times and then throw it into the boiling water. We usually eat millet with vegetables, but I really liked it millet pudding from Jadłonomia's recipe. Most often I make a light pudding version and add my favorite jam. I like this pudding much better than standard desserts of this type. In addition, it is very full. This is a great option not only for dessert, but also for breakfast.vital fiber

Vital fiber

It may not be superfoods, but I have to write about it. I tossed the fiber together with young barley (whose taste I can't survive. Its smell alone rejects me ... maybe you have any ideas on how to smuggle it? I tried in a cocktail, but I couldn't drink it). Vital fiber is recommended to drink 2x daily, although I only drink 1x daily after drinking honey. I still start my day drinking a glass of warm (not hot!) Water with a teaspoon of linden honey. After drinking it, put 2 teaspoon of fiber and pour half a glass of water. I set aside for 20 minutes. At this time I am going to wash myself and prepare for the upcoming work day. After the 20 minutes have elapsed, I mix fiber and drink.

What does vital fiber give me?

I feel 'light' because of drinking vital fiber. I also have the impression that my metabolism is turned up, and in addition I have less appetite (after drinking fiber I feel full for about 2 hours). In the composition of vital fiber we find psyllium, which has a very large amount of fiber, and also plantain husk, which is rich in mucous dietary fiber. The mixture of vital fiber reminds me of the consistency of linseed. If you are not fans of this consistency, you will not like vital fiber.

      You didn't drink coconut water? You have to make up for it! The best is from a young coconut (it was sold some time ago in Biedronka). Coconut water can also be bought in a can or carton (just be sure to look at the composition, because they often add some enhancers).

      Vital fiber is my favorite April! 🙂

    These are really great products and they give you satiety, which is very helpful in losing weight.

      It is true. Fiber provides a feeling of satiety for several hours.

    Millet is my favorite among the superfoods you mentioned. I like chia, but I prefer reaching for local products.

      Sure, it's best to reach for local products, but chia is an exception that should be included in your diet. It tastes best with fresh fruit.

    I discovered Chia recently and I fell in love 🙂 I often serve millet in the form of millet with sugar-free banana. For cooking, I add a date, which does for sugar, and sometimes the banana itself is enough 🙂

      In what form do you like chia the most? Pudding reigns for me 😀 I've never had millet, I have to try. Have you ever eaten millet pudding? It's delicious!

    I love millet and I eat it every day. However, I exchange chia seeds for linseed 🙂

      For me, for desserts linseed has a too specific taste. Chia is more neutral and you can do more with it.

    I like chia and millet, but learned from experience, I don't eat it anymore. Apparently, the abuse of porridge flushes out iodine from the body and is not fed with thyroid disease. Did you know that

      I also recently read that there is nothing to overdo. Apparently, everything is harmful in excess, it's worth eating in moderation.

    We also love chia seeds and millet. Even my children who love sweet cereal eat millet with virtually no additives
