Superfoods Cheat Sheet

Updated: Apr 21

Today you hear the word ‘superfood’ thrown around a lot but might not exactly know what that means. What people define as superfoods might vary, and there are the more obvious ones like dark, leafy greens, blueberries, green tea, salmon, nuts and seeds, especially walnuts and avocados. Today I wanted to give a quick cheat sheet of the superfoods that climbing in popularity but you might not know what they are or the benefits they possess. And basically, superfoods are nutrient dense foods with exceptional health benefits.




Matcha- form of green tea:

antioxidants, chlorophyll, focus, detoxifies the body

Flaxseed:

fiber, healthy hair, digestion


Collagen- most abundant protein in your body:

skin elasticity, stronger hair and nails, reduces joint stress and improves gut health; we make less of this as we grow older!



Tropeaka Products-

I love Tropeaka products for buying great plant-based protein powders, Camu powder and Acai powder. The three main ones I purchase from them include their Vanilla Protein Powder, Camu, and Acai. All of them are gluten free, dairy free, and vegan!


Vanilla Protein- helps build lean muscle and is easily digestible

Camu- vitamin C, fatigue, iron absorption

Acai- antioxidant, detoxifies the body


My favorite brands to purchase superfoods from are Tropeaka and Terrasoul Superfoods. There are so many different ways to incorporate these superfoods into your daily diet- more to come on that soon :)
