In an attempt to eat less meat (being kinder to my body), and more local produce (being kinder to the planet), I’m finding myself with lower energy and really not being kind to anyone.
It’s not that there aren’t enough great food options available, there are, I’m just not exactly sure what they are. So, I did a little googlin’ looking into foods to boost my energy. They’re not local (it’s February in Ontario so not much is). But they are veggie and they are Super!
2. Leeks ~ Loaded with vitamin C, manganese, folate, iron and vitamin B6 this super food helps prevent heart disease and reduce the risk of certain cancers. Leeks are also known to lower blood pressure and stabilize blood sugar levels. As an immunity booster, warm leek soup is a great meal on a chilly February day.
5. Hemp hearts ~ Not just for birkenstock wearing, dread-headed hippies, this super seed is a super food for all and can be added everywhere! Smoothies, sandwiches, soups and salads, cereals and savoury dishes. High in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, protein, vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium and manganese. Toss in some hemp hearts and reap the benefits. *Knitted poncho and pipe not included.
Any additions? What super foods give you super powers?
