Quinoa

  • With twice the protein content of rice or barley, quinoa is also a very good source of calcium, magnesium and manganese. It also contributes useful levels of several B vitamins, vitamin E and dietary fibre.

  • As a complete protein, quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids – including the elusive lysine and isoleucine acids, which most other grains lack.

  • Quinoa is high in anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, which make it potentially beneficial for human health in the prevention and treatment of disease.

Black Beans

  • Black beans are versatile, cholesterol free, high in fibre, rich in protein & low in fat.

  • Black beans are rich in a certain mineral you may not be familiar with but should be…​Molybdenum. This mineral’s actions are mainly in the production of enzymes, proteins that trigger chemical reactions in the body. These enzymes are involved in uric acid formation, transportation of iron, carbohydrate metabolism and sulphite detoxification. This essential mineral is a trace element mainly found in the liver, kidneys, adrenal glands, bones and skin, but it exists in all body tissues. 

Bell Peppers

  • Boost Immunity: load up on vitamin C. 1 cup of sliced red bell peppers gives you 157% of your daily vitamin C content, making them a great way to stay healthy.

  • Balance Mood: Naturally occurring in bell peppers, B6 helps your brain produce serotonin and norepinephrine, two chemicals that affect your mood.

  • Natural Sleep Aid: The vitamin B6 found in bell peppers also aids in melatonin production, which your body needs to regulate its internal clock.
