Coconut is the star ingredient in so many delicious Thai and Indian foods. It’s so loved that coconuts now grow on every subtropical coastline around the world. Let’s be honest, if you don’t like the way something tastes you won’t use it often. Coconut milk tastes great so you’ll actually enjoy using it.
Collagen is the glue that holds us together. In fact, the word collagen originates from the Greek word, “kolla” meaning glue. It helps provide the structure for your bones, tendons, muscles, skin, digestive system and more. Over the years we have lost out on the benefits of this powerful superfood.
Mangoes are filled with fiber, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium, as well as powerful antioxidants. The beneficial digestive enzymes in mangos also aid digestive health. With the sweet succulent taste, frozen mango makes a great addition to any smoothie.
Fresh pineapple juice contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes beneficial for health. Their enzymes can help digest proteins and also offer anti-inflammatory benefits. For the healthiest juice, look for no added sugar, sweeteners, or preservatives.
Chia seeds are tiny but pack a mighty nutritional punch. They contain omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and calcium, and can be added to almost any recipe. They’re extremely versatile so it’s no wonder why they have become one of the most popular superfoods in the health community.
