So you’ve given up simple carbs and sugar for the most important meal of every day. You’ve replaced all that unhealthy stuff with either a refreshing green smoothie or tasty overnight oats. Great stuff! Now how about making your breakfast … even better? Simply add these superfoods to your morning smoothie or bowl of oats.

Chia seeds

Originally from South America, chia seeds were an important part of the Mayan and Aztec diet. And we won’t be surprised if these little seeds were partly responsible for them being such great warriors. Chia seeds are chock full of fibre and protein, essential fatty acids (the most of any known plant), and minerals. The seeds themselves are rather bland, so they can be used in a variety of ways: Added to juice, smoothies or oats, or even added to baked goods. For the runners out there, simply add a little water to them to them to make your own energy gel.

Acai berries

Commonly found in the rainforests of the Amazon, acai berries are known for their energy-boosting and antioxidant-rich properties. They’re known for having a whole host of benefits, including improving heart, cellular, and digestive health, giving you glowing skin, and aiding weight loss. While it’s hard to get your hands on whole acai berries, they are usually available as a supplement in pill or powder form; try adding the latter to your morning green smoothie.

Goji berries

Also known as wolfberries, you might already be familiar with these are they commonly add to flavour soup stock in Chinese cuisine. Not only do they impart a delicate sweetness to the soup, they also contain all 18 amino acids, as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E. And that’s not all – they’ve got more vitamin C than oranges and more iron than spinach, gram for gram.

Oatmeal

Super affordable and easily available at your nearest supermarket, oats are rich in potassium, magnesium, vitamin E, protein and more. Think of oats as mushy or tasteless? Why not try overnight oats, which are all the rage now? Instead of cooking the oats just before you eat it, you soak the oats in a jar of your favourite liquid (be it dairy/non-dairy milk, yoghurt or juice) and your favourite toppings (spices or dried fruit) and leave it overnight in the fridge. You may add more ingredients to it the next morning if you so wish. Easy-to-make and tasty to boot! 

 Avocados

They may be high in fat, but that doesn’t make avocados bad for you. The fat that’s in avocados are of the healthy variety, and they’re also rich in folic acid, potassium, vitamin E, and B vitamins. When added to smoothies, they add a delicious, creamy touch too.
