Blueberries, green tea, raspberries, wild salmon, kale, avocados, almonds…. I could go on and on. Is it just me or is there a new super-food everyday?
Super-foods may just be taking over the world.
And I am very okay with that.
I absolutely love when I’m perusing my favorite blogs and I find a recipe chock full of superfoody goodness in some unconventional way. Pudding made creamy from avocados. Butternut squash pumping up mac and cheese. Baking cookies out of almond meal. Munching on pizza with a crust made from cauliflower.
No one wants to sit around eating raw kale and almonds all day, right?
Okay…that doesn’t sound that bad.
But the bottom line is that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. Why eat raw almonds when you can eat little morsels of heaven AKA chocolate chip cookies made from ground almonds instead of flour? Change it up sometimes! Use ingredients in odd places and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the tasty ways you can boost your vitamin, mineral, protein and fiber intake. Veggies don’t have to be savory and fruit doesn’t have to be sweet. Food is so versatile, so why not explore?
These recipes are from a few of my favorite blogs. I adore their efforts to use super-foods in fun, unique ways not only because they taste delish, but because they’re a fabulous way to sneak in more fruits, veggies and other super-foods into your day. I’ve tried several of these recipes; and let me tell you, they do not disappoint.
