What are Superfoods and how do I use them? Utilising Superfoods made simple in this quick and easy guide.
The world of Superfoods is a quickly expanding domain of highly nutritious and natural foods. Usually presented in easily absorbable freeze or slow dried powdered form, Superfoods are exceptionally dense with nutrition that can easily be digested by the body. For some the colourful pungent dried powders might not be the most appealing or appetizing sight. You might be pondering: ‘how do I best use all these ingredients and how can I make them taste wonderful?’
Here at Indigo Herbs we believe that the best way to utilise all the amazing dense nutrition locked in Superfoods is to create simple, delicious – yet extremely nourishing - Super-Smoothies. Smoothies are the perfect way to ingest Superfoods; they are easy to prepare, very diverse and adaptable; they mask some of the more unappealing tastes of some Superfoods, and are so nutritionally rich that with the right ingredients they can replace breakfast.
Below is a set of tips and a simple yet dynamic method of how to best use Superfoods to create powerful Super-Smoothies. The result will be a glass of energising vital nutritional purity that your taste buds and body will love.
What else you can do
The dimensions of Super-Smoothies never end and the versatility and array of combinations of Superfoods is only limited by an individual’s imagination. The Five Step Smoothie Method is a great starting point for making all your smoothie dreams come true.
Once you feel you have mastered our basic method you can become more refined in taste, Superfood measurements for bodily needs. If you’re really clever, Super-Smoothies can be engineered to have exact ingredients tailor made to boost every part of the body and mind.
We can’t guarantee that you’ll become thinner, stop ageing, become smarter, more beautiful or free from illness; what we can tell you is that you’ll have more energy, vitality and improved overall health if you implement Superfood smoothies into your diet.
