5 superfoods you can easily add to your weekly food routine with minimum fuss and effort.
So you may have over indulged last Easter weekend. Lots of chocolate, big roast dinners or maybe a few drinks in the sun over the bank holiday? Fear not! We have put together a little list of some super foods to include in your diet to get you back on track, and start feeling super!
Yes, yes, we’ve heard all the bad news about fat and how it should be avoided. Well, salmon is packed with Omega 3 fatty acids – which are very good for you indeed! Research has suggested that Omega 3 can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. You can easily include it into your dishes for dinner!
Brilliant as a snack during the day! A small handful of almonds as a hunger buster is a great energy booster. Packed full of protein, potassium, and fiber. Keep mind, each nut contains 6 calories, so make sure it’s a small handful. You could be cheeky though, and have an almond croissant!

Stick them in the blender and get juiced up, or add them to your morning muesli, or combine them with our next entry.
