In every bite

The term “superfood” is essentially just a fancier way to point out healthy, nutrient-packed foods. While the list goes on and on with ingredients like quinoa and acai, many of the elements that make for a delicious and healthy meal are easy to incorporate into any meal. Whether you throw a few

berries into your smoothie, some quinoa into your lunch bowl, or some kale into your salad, your one step closer to a superfood meal. Heads up: there’s even a way to mingle some wheatgrass into a tapenade for toast! Here are a few ideas to get you moving in the recipe department.

Everything you need on a Monday to get started and inspired to eat healthy and delicious all week!
