Being fit & healthy is not just about exercising regularly, it's also what you eat daily. Reward your body with healthy nutritious meals that are quick & easy to prepare. I'm loving these Buddha Bowls at the moment. A perfect pre or post workout meal that can easily be prepared in advance. Today's choice 'Quinoa, spinach, sweet potato & Avocado.
It’s so nutritious & delicious! It’s packed full of fresh veggies & crunchy nuts. Try it, you wont regret it.
Sweet potatoes are high in fibre, & low in GI, which helps to fill you up for longer & aid digestive health. They’re also rich in Vitamin A, which is great for eye health.
Baby spinach is not only extremely healthy, but extremely versatile, being rich in vitamin K, folate, and high in iron. Dark leafy greens are one of the richest sources of iron from plant food, especially important for those vegetarians/vegans out there!
Avocados are rich in antioxidants, specifically carotenoids (lycopene and beta-carotene), which play important roles in maintaining eye health. They are a great source of healthy fat, & vitamin E, which is great for skin and hair health.
The copper & iron in cashews work together to help the body form & use red blood cells. This in turn keeps blood vessels, nerves, bones & the immune system healthy & functioning properly.
Peas are a good source of vitamins C & E, zinc, & other antioxidants that strengthen your immune system. Other nutrients, such as vitamins A & B & coumestrol, help reduce inflammation & lower your risk of chronic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, & arthritis.
Quinoa is one of the world’s most popular health foods. Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein & one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids..
It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E & various beneficial antioxidants.
