5 Super Healthy Foods to Try this Month


Chia Seeds - Neal's Yard - £2.49 for 100g

These seeds are great when mixed with almond milk or orange juice and various fruits to create a delicious dessert - they soak in the moisture and become gelatinous when left to soak, a bit like pudding rice! They're full of fibre to help aid digestion, and omega-3 fats to maintain healthy organs.

Almond Milk - Provamel - £0.89 for 1 litre

This milk is my favourite alternative to dairy milk. It's low in calories and tastes amazing; I love pouring it over a whole grain cereal, or using it in porridge with a little bit of cinnamon. Almond milk contains vitamin E which is great for maintaining healthy skin, and plenty of iron which aids muscle strength.

Manuka Honey - Medibee - £10.99 for 250g

I absolutely adore honey - I'm a little bit like Winnie the Pooh. Drizzled over cereal or mixed in with tea, it can completely transform any meal or drink, and it's SOOOO much better for you than refined sugars. It's antibacterial, so it's great for helping get rid of mouth ulcers, colds and strep throat, and it's good for aiding digestion.

Quinoa - Neal's Yard - £4.79 for 500g

So many people have great things to say about quinoa; it's the perfect alternative to rice or pasta and it's super tasty when mixed in with homemade sauces and organic vegetables. It's full of fibre, protein and iron - basically, it's the ideal superfood, and it won't leave you feeling hungry.

Flaxseed - Linwoods - £5.19 for 425g

Flaxseed is a real miracle ingredient. It can be used to make anything from bread to brownies and can also be mixed in with yoghurts and fruit to make a quick snack. It's a great source of omega-3, fibre and lignans to act as an antioxidant.

  1. Great choice. A few days ago I ordered and tried chia seed with yogurt. Great combination, too.
