I have recently been looking for ways to incorporate more superfoods into my diet, so I decided to add them in with my morning bowl of oatmeal.
To give you a little background on these particular superfoods, cacao contains a naturally rich supply of antioxidants and is an excellent source of dietary fiber.
Hemp seed powder is a protein powder that is a great alternative for those looking for something that is lactose and soy free. It also contains all the essential amino acids making it a complete protein, one of the highest from a plant source.
Goji Berries are a complete protein source as well, containing 18 different amino acids and all 8 essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan). They also have up to 21 trace minerals (the superstars being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus) and vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E.
Raw cashews contain potassium, B vitamins, folate, and high levels of oleic acid (omega-9), and help support the health of the skin and protect the heart.
So if this is not a bowl of goodness, I don’t know what is!
Tip: If you want to reduce the calories and/or carbs, you can leave the banana out. I just like the added texture and the volume that it offers.
