Superfood Trends to Watch

…and just what is a “superfood” anyway?

Who wouldn’t want to believe in the concept of “superfoods”? The idea that the vast expanse of nature has secret nutritional resources that can easily help us with a number of ailments if only they can be discovered and harvested, is definitely enticing.

It certainly seems like we’ve just been blind to treasure troves of exotic berries, nuts, and grains when these popular superfoods were unknown to the West until now. Açaí berries, for example, only gained fame outside of Brazil within the last decade.

It’s often their otherness that makes these foods so appealing. Quinoa, particularly popular among vegetarians and vegans, does indeed provide a decent protein source – but then again, so do many common beans and nut varieties.

Açaí berries and goji berries are packed with phytochemicals, a plant compound which does seem to have a positive effect on a person’s chances of heart disease and brain deterioration. That sounds fancy, except regular old blueberries and strawberries have lots of phytochemicals too.

7 Ways to Make No-Bake Energy Bites

Today, we’re diving deep into the world of energy bites, everyone’s favorite meal prep snack recipe!

Energy bites are a great healthier treat, packed with protein thanks to a nut butter base, chia seeds and ground flax. They are sweet enough that you feel like you just had a treat, and filling enough to keep you going when you’re on empty.

Not only that but they are so convenient to grab on your way out the door.

Swaps in this no bake energy bite recipe:

  • honey and maple syrup are interchangeable
  • natural nut butters are interchangeable, however non-natural nut butters are not recommended for this recipe (they don’t set properly and are overly sweet)
  • if you don’t have coconut oil, try an extra tablespoon of nut butter
  • if you can’t find ground flax, add 2 extra tablespoons of rolled oats

Storing your no-bake energy bites:

  • Short term: Store in a sealed container in the fridge.  Your energy bites are good for a week or so.
  • Long term: Store in plastic bags in the freezer.  Freeze on a cookie sheet for one hour before transferring to a ziplock plastic bag in the freezer.  *Remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag*
  • To thaw: place in the fridge overnight
