GojiBerryCookies3

The holidays are all about celebrating and for me, it’s all about the food. I am a big fan of making my holiday treats both festive and healthy. This week on ABC, I shared healthier ways to do just that, specifically for Valentine’s Day

One way to do that is to use RED super foods! Super food is a general, non-medical term often used to describe foods that have a high level of nutrients relative to the amount of calories that they contain. This is made apparent by reading the nutrition facts label.

Navitas Naturals sent me some of their products to experiment with for some Valentine’s themed recipes.

Goji Berries and Goji Berry Powder: These tiny red berries are touted for their incredibly high antioxidant content. Antioxidants are found in the fruits and veggies that we consume and are responsible for combating free radical damage that can occur to cells. Goji Berries are also a surprisingly good source of protein. Add the berries and powder to oatmeal, yogurt or smoothies.

Pomegranate Powder: Pomegranate arils are known for being small in size and rich in antioxidants. The powder is a good source of both potassium and vitamin C and therefore can add a nutritive boost to your yogurt or morning oatmeal.
