Edamame

  • It has ALL the essential amino acids. Leucine, lysine, threonine, tryptophan…gang’s all here! ...making it a complete protein source!

  • It has calcium. Not only does edamame have vitamin K, which helps regulate calcium levels, it contains calcium itself. That makes it a double-win for your bones.

  • Supports healthy weight management: contains fibre which helps maintain a healthy weight by slowing down nutrient absorption, this is good because sugars are absorbed slower, so energy is released gradually and the body can metabolize those nutrients better.

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.

Red Cabbage

  • Red cabbage is rich in vitamins C and K1, both of which are essential for building and maintaining strong, healthy bones, and also contains smaller amounts of bone-benefitting nutrients, such as calcium, manganese, and zinc.

  • A great source of antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds that help protect against cellular damage.

  • Red cabbage is low in calories yet a good source of fibre and vitamins A, C, K, and B6.
