4 SUPERFOODS THAT ARE GREAT FOR FITNESS
We often hear "You are what you eat". 🥒
That is definitely true: your food is your fuel, and just like you would want the absolute best fuel for your luxury car 🚗 , you should aim to intake the absolute best fuel for your body, too.
A diet packed with super nutritious foods will help you get the best results: whether it be strength and flexibility training, your career, or any other personal achievements.
❓What are the TOP 4 "superfoods" we love adding to our meals?
1️⃣ CHIA SEEDS
these little guys have 2x the protein of other seeds and grains, 5x the calcium of milk, and 2x the potassium of bananas. They are a great source of energy for your body, and have some pretty impressive anti-inflammatory properties too!
Super easy to use: just sprinkle them on top of literally anything for a crunchy addition to your meal, or mix with water and wait for 10 minutes to make yourself a pudding!
this should be a diet staple for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Beans are stacked with protein, fibre, and a whole plethora of vitamins and antioxidants! For easier digestion, soak them in water before cooking (or buy them pre-soaked)
once a staple in the diet of Incas (and let's be honest, those guys left some insanely impressive historical achievements behind them), now this grain is readily available in any health food aisle or store.
It has a great ratio of carbs, proteins, and fats. In fact, its protein is one of the most complete ones you can find in the plant world!
TIP ❗️ — rinse and lightly toast your quinoa on a dry pan before cooking it in water. The rinsing helps get rid of any coating, and toasting brings out the nutty flavour!
didn't expect to see this fruit on the list? We don't know why it doesn't get more good rep. Mangoes have over 20 vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
They are also very versatile: eat fresh, throw frozen chunks into a smoothie, or invest some time into a delicious healthy dessert like the Thai sticky mango rice (don't thank us until you try it... one word: addictive)
