QUINOA: Considered a pseudo-grain, quinoa is a super food and excellent clean protein source. High in antioxidants and important phytonutrients, this grain has anti-inflammatory benefits. It also contains higher values of heart healthy fats, including monounsaturated fat and omega-3s.
GREAN BEANS: Although green in color, green beans are an important source of carotenoids, antioxidants usually found in orange and red flesh-colored vegetables. We are unable to see these carotenoids because of the concentrated chlorophyll content providing their rich green color. Eating green beans also supports food sustainability as they are easily grown in many climates
WALNUTS: Walnuts contain an unusual form of Vitamin E providing significant protection from heart problems. Phytonutrient research ranks walnuts high in protection against cardiovascular problems and type 2 diabetes due to their high omega-3 content and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
