“1. Kale: is having its moment in the spotlight, and for good reason. While all leafy greens are healthy, kale is the real nutrient kicker. MindBodyGreen says this leafy green is chock full of iron, fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins A, C, and K. Add some to your morning smoothie, toss it with veggies for the perfect lunch, or drizzle olive oil and salt and bake it to make kale chips. Trust us, you’ll never go back to boring bagged potato chips again — and this version is actually good for you.”
“2. Chia Seeds: These seeds date back to the Mayans and the Aztecs but have recently gained popularity again. Regardless of their origin, chia seeds are a complete protein and something vegetarians should always look out for, as they contain all of the essential amino acids. As Lindsey Duncan explained on The Dr. Oz Show’s website, they also boast fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Everyone from Giada De Laurentiis to at-home chefs are talking about chia seed pudding as the perfect breakfast food, but you can also add it to smoothies or salads.”
“3. Goji Berries: Feeling under the weather? Add these to a cup of green tea and you’ll have a throat-soothing drink packed with vitamin C (more than an orange, according to Real Raw Food). Goji berries also pack a punch with beta-carotene, vitamin E, and antioxidants. Warning: Goji berries can be slightly bitter, so it is best to pair them with a flavor you enjoy. Your best bet it to treat them like other dried fruits and add them to yogurt, cereal or salads.”
