You’re probably no stranger to the idea that you should be eating a healthy, balanced diet – it’s probably one of the reasons you’ve begun meal prepping in the first place. Your carbs should be complex and fibrous, your protein should be lean, and there should always be lots and lots of vegetables.
So what else can you do to make your meal prep as healthy as it can be?
Try adding in some superfoods! The term might make you think of strange and exotic foods, but this isn’t actually the case. Superfoods are, simply, really healthy whole foods that pack on tons of nutrition. Adding more superfoods into your meal prep will ensure that you’re hitting all of your nutritional needs!
What are superfoods?
When we talk about healthy eating, we’re often talking about the major macronutrients – namely, your carbohydrates, protein, and fats. However, there are many micronutrients that we need to be getting in our diet as well. This includes our vitamins, minerals, and fiber to keep every system in our body running smoothly.
“Superfoods” is a term that refers to any food that has multiple health benefits and can be added into a healthy diet. While no one food has all of your nutritional needs, superfoods provide enough nutrients to cover several different vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients. Adding these uber-healthy foods into your meal prep means you don’t need to have quite as many ingredients to meet all your daily nutritional needs.
Some examples include:
As you can see, superfoods aren’t complicated. In fact, you’re probably already eating a lot of these to some degree! Make sure to add as many superfoods as you can to your weekly meal prep to keep the nutrition benefits going all week long.
