I know for myself I am really eager to get as many naturally derived nutrients (all good based) into every meal and especially now as we get closer to the end of the year, our schedules are all a little busier and we need to feel our best.
Ok, so our schedule today began at 6am and as many households it’s a race out the door juggling school lunches, breakfasts, brushing hair and teeth, ensuring everyone has what they will need for the day and can leave the house on a positive note…! This morning we nailed it, I myself had a beautifully hydrating tea with bötanica wild Original and also managed to add a spoonful of bötanica wild vitality into the baby’s oatmeal which provides her with a sustaining health throughout her busy day and me a sense of comfort knowing I have given her the best available for her health.
I love the convenience of adding a couple spoonfuls of the superfoods where I see fit bit what I am really passionate about is using the superfoods and other products in my daily routine, like in my Mediterranean bruschetta. I’ll add my recipe in below for you to enjoy but do feel free to add and subtract with your preferred ingredients to make it your own, we would love to hear your favourites!
My two go-to hacks here are making the olive tapenade and the pesto with superfoods to enhance the flavour, quality and you guessed it - the nutritional profile of these ingredients. Mine last in the fridge for the better part of two weeks until they’re all gobbled up on eggs, leftovers, toast..you get the picture.
The fact that I have made these ingredients and understand what is in them gives me a boost just in knowing. These two foods are so great for you in themselves, plus I am able to simply and quickly add in a massive amount of nutrition just by adding a couple spoons of the bötanica wild superfood range is a bonus. A massive bonus!
