  • 3+1 reasons to incorporate superfood mixes into your diet!

    I’ve been testing these two superfood mixes for a while, and I have to say, I’m now absolutely convinced why I should include them in my diet.

    Anyone who follows my blog may well know that I mainly believe in the health benefits of fresh, unpackaged (ie no or least processed) foods. But recently I got to test two superfood blends that immediately got me very excited. 🤩 (Side note: This post is not sponsored, I did not get a penny for it, however you can only read my honest opinion on these products as always. 💚)

    In the field of nutritional supplements and such, I also always try to choose the ones that are as clean as possible and closest to the “original” state of natural foods, so I was very pleased that the Food Therapy Market’s ‘Your Superfoods’ mixes only contain very high quality, organic and raw ingredients, without any additives or preservatives. They are basically raw superfoods just as nature created them. 😊 Moreover, they are also vegan, gluten-, soy-, sweetener- and GMO-free. Amen!

    But let’s take a closer look at exactly what I tried (because in the webshop there are 5 more types of superfood mixes as well!).

    FOREVER BEAUTIFUL – THE ANTIOXIDANT SUPERFOOD MIX

    What’s in it?

    Chia seeds *, acai * and maqui berry *, acerola *, maca *, blueberry powder *

    * Organic

    That’s all, nothing else. Specifically, this is the list of ingredients. I think it’s awesome! 😊

    Will it make me more beautiful?

    The mix’s name is “Forever Beautiful” and this is a beauty blog, so fair enough for the question. And my answer is that if you eat hamburgers and french fries all day every day, then it’s unlikely. 😜 (Of course, maybe it will help a little.) BUT, if you are generally on a healthy diet and decide to add this mix to your morning smoothie (lets say), you will be guaranteed to see and feel the effect.

    This mixture is composed of ingredients that contain vitamins and antioxidants that contribute greatly to the health of the skin, hair and nails. These include vitamins A, B3, B6, C, E, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Not to mention the extremely high antioxidant content of blueberries, maqui and acai berries, which you probably know is the most powerful miracle weapon against aging / wrinkling oxidative processes. There is another component of it, the maca that I’ve already talked about on the blog, but basically why we love it is how it is able to balance out hormones, which is great because it can cause serious skin problems when there is an imbalance (eg, hormonal acne).

    So I think this blend is a real win if you want to nurture your body with an extra dose of antioxidants!

    How should I use it?

    So far I’ve mainly mixed 1 tsp into my porridge in the morning, added to my smoothies and to homemade ice cream. (I love that it gives a beautiful pink colour to everything!) You can also simply blend it in plant milks or yoghurt. If you are – on the other hand – someone who loves creating in the kitchen you can make a chia pudding, raw cakes or energy balls out of it too. These are still on my list, just as to get a new package of it as I am already about to run out! 😊

    How does it taste?

    Since it is not sweetened, it is definitely not sweet. I would say it is rather a bit sour, but if you blend it into something you can barely taste anything as it is such a small amount. My 4 year old son loves it – I think that says it all! 😉

    POWER MATCHA – THE GREEN ENERGY SUPERFOOD MIX

    What’s in it?

    Organic matcha, organic maca, organic moringa *, organic wheatgrass and organic barley grass

    * Fair Trade

    That’s it!

    What are the health benefits of this mix?

    In short, I would call it an energy bomb, which you will be after you consuming it. 😜 It is full of antioxidants, chlorophyll, vitamins A, B1-7, B9, B12, E, K, iron and potassium. In addition, it also has hormone-balancing maca, but some beautifying, rejuvenating, digestion-helping moringa as well. I think everyone knows wheatgrass: it is a detoxing, immune system-strengthening, energizing superfood. And finally barley grass is an amazing metabolism-boosting, anti-inflammatory, nervous system-calming elixir. With this mix, in addition to delivering a large amount of vegetables to your body, your immune system, energy level and beauty will also get a huge boost!

    Matcha – What’s the hype?

    Nowadays, everyone is drinking matcha lattes, the Insta is flooded with the most spectacular matcha photos, which is obviously not a coincidence. The reason is, if anything, then matcha is really a superfood. Did you know, for example, that one cup is the nutritional equivivalent of 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea?  And that it has 137 times more antioxidants?

    The traditional Japanese ground tea powder includes A-, B-complex, C, E, K vitamins, potassium, calcium, folic acid, phosphorus and magnesium. Rich in antioxidants, catechins, chlorophyll and caffeine. It contains roughly the amount of coffee, but this kind of caffeine makes you energised without getting jittery or nervous. 😉 In fact, it has a very calming effect on the nerves and improves the mood. Matcha protects against cancer, heart disease, prevents high blood pressure, balances blood sugar and boosts metabolism (helping to lose weight). Hip-hip-hooray! Now, think about that this Power Matcha mix has 4 other superfoods in addition to matcha! 👌 How cool is that?

    How should I use it?

    Like the Forever Beautiful mix, I did use this mostly in porridge and smoothies, but I also made american pancakes with it (just mixed with dough) and, of course, matcha latte. They’re all divine! What I’m going to do next is try to make homemade matcha ice creammatcha energy balls and guacamole. It is equally great with sweet and savoury foods as well!

    How does it taste?

    It’s pretty much like a good strong green tea. Slightly grassy, ​​slightly bitter & sweet at the same time. It’s hard to describe. 🧐 Unless you make a latte, you will not be able to get the taste.

    If you are based in Hungary, you can order it here: Power Matcha

    If somewhere else in Europe, then here.

    Rest of the world, here.

    So WHAT’S THE 3 + 1 REASON WHY YOU SHOULD USE THESE BLENDS?

    • You get a high dose of nutrients

    If you are struggling to eat your daily recommended 10 servings of fruits and vegetables, these mixes are for you. But even if you exquisitely consume this amount, it’s better if you know that nowdays fruits and veggies do not contain as much nutrition as they used to. That is why 80% of people are “deficient” on a daily basis. So it is very important to choose your supplements wisely so your body can get what it needs. For this I think superfood mixes are a very cool alternative.

    • They can be mixed with almost anything

    As I said, with porridge, muesli, yoghurt, smoothies, you name it. In fact, if you want to create amazing Insta photos, you can  bring on your creativity and make super trendy raw matcha cakes or acai bowls as well. (There are some good recipes here).

    • Clean and high quality ingredients

    I can highly recommend these superfood powders to anyone because this company is far from all the marketing bullsh*t. These mixes truly only contain the best ingredients coming from organic and sustainable sources + they have very high nutrient content and last but not least they also taste great!

    +1. You support charity

    Finally, with each product purchased, you support children suffering from severe acute malnutrition who are immediately receiving another packet of life-saving food.

    Have a beautiful day, gorgeous!
