Which are the ‘superfoods’?


Steamed salmon, broccoli and carrots served with paprika & herby sweet potato wedges. 

Salmon is a great source of protein rich in the mega healthy omega 3 fatty acids – so surely it’s the salmon..?

Broccoli is high in fibre and micronutrients. These include Vitamins C, B6 & A, magnesium, calcium and iron – ah ha it must be broccoli..?

Carrots are well known for being great for our eye sight. This is because they are a rich source of Vitamin A. Did you know that a serving (80g) contains more than 2&1/2 times an adult’s daily requirements. Yes it must be the carrots..?

Sweet potatoes have a similar fibre and micronutrient profile to broccoli but with loads more Vitamin A so it must be these?

Paprika… herbs…

The truth is they’re all ‘super’ foods that are great to include as part of a healthy balanced diet. Sorry to burst the bubble but no food is the best!
