Superfoods

We may not be superheroes, but incorporating superfoods into our diets in simple ways makes us feel that we can take on whatever the day throws at us.

Navitas is all about superfoods: The family-owned company has been around since 2003 when “superfood” was just a fledgling buzzword, and every single one of its products is certified organic and Non-GMO Project verified. And from a vanity standpoint, the resealable, BPA-free packaging looks great in our pantry.

Navitas has recently released a frenzy of new products. Here are the three new-to-us superfoods that we are most pumped about:

Green Coffee Powder ($15 for 4 ounces): This isn’t something out of a Dr. Seuss story, rather it’s made from young, unroasted Arabica coffee beans that are picked in Peru. The fiber-rich powder contains about the same amount of caffeine as green tea and can boost energy, support metabolism and aid digestion, but the flavor is tenacious, so we won’t be sipping this on it’s own. Instead, try blending it into your morning smoothie (try this banana bread smoothie) or combining it with cacao.

Maca Cashews ($7 for 4 ounces): These mildly sweet raw cashews are enveloped in fatigue-fighting maca powder harvested in the Andes, along with sea salt and a hint of maple syrup and coconut palm sugar. With a creamy soft texture and a butterscotch-like flavor, this is one snack we don’t want to share.

Mulberries ($7 for 4 ounces): Though we might have sung “Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush” umpteen times as tots, we’ve never had these chewy, white berries as part of our diet. We’re changing that by plopping these fig-like berries from Turkey on our morning granola for a boost of protein (three grams per ounce) and resveratrol, the anti-aging nutrient also found in red wine.
