I’ve shared my favourite health foods here. Today I’m sharing my favourite superfoods. Please know, that you do not need to consume superfoods in order to be healthy. I know that some people don’t have access to these foods and that’s totally okay. I don’t eat these foods all the time. Sometimes I’ll consume them for an extra boost and I often receive a lot of questions about my top superfoods, so I thought I’d share my favourites.
Coconut – contains antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties which are fantastic for gut health. Coconut also benefits brain function, boosts the metabolism and increases immunity.
Chia – small seeds which are a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids and B12 which assist heart and brain health. Chia is also an excellent source of fibre and protein.
Raw honey – high in antioxidants, vitamins and enzymes. Honey contains antibacterial and antiviral properties to assist with allergies, respiratory disorders and gut health.

Acai and Maqui – Amazonian fruits typically sold in powder form. Acai and maqui are an excellent source of antioxidants beneficial for slowing the aging process.
Bee pollen – known as nature’s most complete food, bee pollen contains almost all the nutrients needed for vitality including protein, vitamins and folic acid.
Goji berries – complete form of protein and excellent source of B vitamins, vitamin E, vitamin C and iron. Goji berries increase alkalinity and improve eyesight and skin health.
