The secret to staying young: eat goji berries

Goji-berries-1

You might of heard of these berries before and you might have not but Goji Berries have been shown to reduce the your body’s ability to age, keeping you youthful in spirit and physique.

There are many unique and interesting things about these beautiful berries:

1. They contain essential amino acids

In fact they contain the highest concentration of protein in any fruit!

2. They are loaded with antioxidants

Antioxidants aid the functioning of our immune systems, they help fight the free radicals that contribute to cancer as well as ageing.

3. Better than Popeye

Boasting 15 times the amount of iron found in spinach, as well as a heap of calcium, zinc, selenium and many other important trace minerals, these bad boys are a winning ticket to optimal health.

 

So how do I eat them?

I tend to pop them in my breakfast bowl, along side some whole milk yogurt, fresh berries and nuts. Or I pop them in a smoothie or just grab a handful of them as a snack.

There also great to pop into healthy dessert as an extra goodie!

They soak up a lot of juice so I quite like eating them after soaking them for half an hour in almond milk or yogurt.

 

BREAKFAST:

BUCKWHEAT FLAKES with Apple-Pear Compote and Pistachios

DINNER:

I steamed the Fennel

The Tomatoes I fryed in Olive Oil , i added the Carpers. No salt as the Carpers are salty enough. Serve with a Dill.

It was just YUMMMI !!!!

Have a nice evening
