Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and contains iron, B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin E and fiber. It is also a great form of protein, making it popular with healthy eaters. Incredibly versatile it makes the perfect bed for any meat or fish based dish. Alternatively it will add a nutty flavour to salads. One of its best qualities is that it’s so easy to prepare. Add to some stock in a boiler pot and leave it to cook. When done, its grains quadruple in size and become almost translucent.
Kale is a leafy green cruciferous vegetable that is packed full of essential vitamins A, C and K as well as minerals such as copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. Its subtle taste allows you to simply blend into a smoothie, bake into your Sunday roast veg or chop into a fresh salad.
As well as high levels of vitamins, blueberries also provide iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, folate, beta-carotene, choline, vitamin A and vitamin E making them one of the best super fruits around. Their adaptability means you could mix them with low fat pancakes, bake into sugar free muffins or even top granola and yogurt for the perfect healthy breakfast dish.
