Blueberries (especially wild) are among the foods highest in antioxidant power. They support healthy cellular function and triglyceride levels. Blueberries also contain a special kind of polyphenol called anthocyanin, which has incredible brain health benefits.
Cauliflower is one of the healthiest cruciferous vegetables you can get. It’s loaded with nutrients including fiber, vitamins C, K, and B6, and potassium.
Ceylon Cinnamon is also known as Cinnamomum verum or true cinnamon. It has a lighter, sweeter flavor and more health benefits than the more common Cassia cinnamon found in most grocery stores.
Coconut oil provides a boost of healthy fat that can energize and satiate. It is a strong antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial food.
Dates are rich in heart-healthy potassium. Just one cup provides 27 percent of the recommended daily requirement.
Flaxseeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that promote the reduction of cholesterol levels, which helps prevent cardiovascular diseases. They are a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, vitamin B1, copper, selenium, and zinc.
Hemp hearts are rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids. They are also an excellent source of protein, vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
Enzymes in fresh lemon juice accelerate the digestive process. Even though lemon juice is acidic, it actually has an alkalizing effect on the body.
Nut milks are a form of non-dairy milk made from nuts soaked in water and blended into a creamy beverage. Some popular nut milks on the market include almond, macadamia, cashew, walnut, pistachio, and hazelnut. Other non-dairy milks you can use in your smoothies include soy milk, lite coconut milk, and oat milk.
