It can be tricky to make sure that you are getting all the nutrients you need on a daily basis. The Superfood range from Bioglan can make it a little easier.
Disclosure: This Fitness Friday post is in collaboration with Bioglan. They sent me some of their Superfood range to try out, but the opinions in this post are my own and unbiased.
By now you probably know the importance of eating a balanced diet, one that is rich in nutrients including a wide range of vitamins and minerals. We should get our daily nutrients from a ‘rainbow’ of fruits, vegetables and wholefoods. But it can be really tricky to make sure that you are getting all of the nutrients that you need on a daily basis.
Bioglan sent me some of their Superfoods range to try out, and these products can definitely make it easier for you to meet your nutritional requirements.
Bioglan Organic Cacao powder is packed full of calcium, iron, vitamin C and potassium. Raw cacao is also one of the most concentrated sources of magnesium. This mineral is really important for energy production, blood sugar control and a healthy immune system. Bioglan Organic Cacao powder can be added to juices and smoothies, you can mix it with yoghurt, or just use it in your everyday baking. Why not try using Bioglan Organic Cacao powder in my Chocolate Cinnamon Banana Bread?
Bioglan also sent me some of their Supergreens Cacao Boost powder, which contains the nutritional equivalent of 14 portions of fruit and veg! Over 20 ingredients are combined in this powder, including:
- Spinach and Kale powders
- Ground Chia and Flax seeds
- Wheatgrass powder
- Lactobacilus Acidophilus
It also contains Organic Cacao Powder for a smooth chocolatey flavour. You can mix Bioglan Supergreens Cacao Boost powder with non-acidic juices and smoothies, or just blend it with cold water.
These delicious little bites are packed full of nutrients from ingredients such as dates, cranberries, goji berries and sunflowers seeds. They give you the energy you need to keep you going without that post-snack sugar slump. You also get a chocolate hit from cacao powder and cacao nibs, but without the refined sugar that you get in regular chocolate snacks.
We really enjoyed trying the Bioglan Superfood Raw Bites, and I think they’d make a great addition to lunchboxes. They’re also a good source of magnesium, as well as being a really good post-workout snack.
The Bioglan Superfood range is available from a range of stores both on the High Street and online – click here for a list of stockists.
