Grapes are often seen as a “lesser” fruit with a high sugar content. While grapes are higher in sugar and lower in fiber than some other fruits, it’s their high antioxidant count that truly makes them shine.
One of the most commonly known antioxidants found in grapes (and wine!), resveratrol, can help protect against cancer, heart-related illness, inflammation and high blood sugar levels. Our Chicken Waldorf Salad with red grapes is a summer staple.
Thanks to the rising popularity of cauliflower, people are finally starting to understand not all white foods are bad, and mushrooms are definitely one veg with serious health benefits. And we’re not talking about expensive medicinal mushrooms or powders here, we are talking about regular ol’ button, portobello and oyster mushrooms!
For starters, mushrooms are the only plant-based source of Vitamin D, so they are an essential food for vegans and vegetarians. Mushrooms are full of B vitamins, selenium and potassium, and they are also key for improving gut health. We absolutely love topping our pizza with some sliced ‘shrooms.
