Greatist.com is a fantastic resource for ideas and information about healthy living. The content is nicely structured around three categories/themes: Eat, Move, Live. A recent article, 25 Greatist Superfoods and Why They're Super, is loaded with information that might just change the way you think about nutrition and your health. We encourage you to read it.
As we scanned the list of 25 superfoods, we decided to share one of our favourite ways to prepare 3 superfoods on the list in a simple salad. These ingredients’ low cost and high availability make them a great staple to have on the grocery list:
Start with any apple you like. One of the great things about apples is there is a very wide selection of varieties. In addition, apples are loaded with fibre. Now, take one bunch of spinach. Of course make sure it’s thoroughly cleaned. One cup of spinach has nearly 12% of the recommended daily dose of calcium, plus enough vitamin K to fight against bone loss. Finish off with a ½ cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen). They are loaded with fibre and vitamin C.
- Dice up the apple.
- Trim the spinach.
- Toss in the blueberries.
Salt and pepper to taste and let the 3 flavours do the rest!
