Super Foods: Acai Berry

Berries are full of nutrients. Strawberries have Vitamin C, Magnesium and Potassium. Blueberries also have calcium. The best part about berries is that they have less calories! A cup of cranberries has 44 calories only.

They are packed with nutrients and are low in calories, what’s not to love?




Acai berry is called a super food (or should I say super berry?) because along with the benefits of berries mentioned above, it is well known for it’s antioxidants.

More benefits about Acai berries include:

- Improves heart health

- Promotes mental function

- Keeps Skin healthy

- Anti ageing properties


So other than popping them in your mouth to eat, you can check out these yummy recipes!

Super Foods: Chia Seeds

Continuing the series on super foods, my second pick after White Tea is Chia seeds. The Best part about Chia seeds is that you can add them to anything you’re making.

These tiny things boast a ridiculously long list of nutrients, which includes,

Omega 3 Fatty Acids – vital in maintaining a healthy brain.

Fibre – Important for digestion.

Calcium – A good source of calcium for those who are allergic to dairy or fish.

Manganese – Good for bones.

Phosphorus – Helps in maintaining teeth and bones.

Protein – A good source of protein for vegetarians.


Other than that Chia Seeds help in slowing down digestion, which makes it an ideal natural remedy for Type 2 diabetes, and helps fight belly fat.


Now if you’re clueless about how to prepare a dish using chia seeds, have a look at some of these must try recipes!
