Lifestyle: Swap Your Kale for These New Superfoods

You’ve drank your weight in bone broth and can tell if that bunch of kale is lacinato or Tuscan from a mile away. Let us introduce you to the latest crop of superfoods. We have a hunch these five nutrition powerhouses will be blowing up your Instagram feed.

If You Like Kale …
Try seaweed. Slurping up the deep green ribbons is a great way to get a dose of iodine which is essential for a well-functioning thyroid. Too slimy for you to stomach? Dried sheets of seaweed have a salty taste and subtle crunch and make it a natural swap for chips.

If You Like Coconut Water …
Try cactus water. The sweet tasting elixir is packed with taurine which repairs muscles tissue damage, so guzzle it post-workout. You may want to sip it after a long night out, too. Brimming with flavonoids, it can help ease the headache and nausea that come along with a hangover.

If You Like Coconut Flour …
Try banana flour. Because it’s grain-free, you can bet Paleo and gluten-free fanatics are already whipping up healthy versions of brownies and pancakes with it. Made from unripe bananas, it’s full of potassium and rich in fiber.

If You Like Quinoa …
Try amaranth. The tiny seed lowers cholesterol, keeps your heart healthy, and has an abundance of calcium and protein. Chowing down on it may be new to you, but it’s been a mealtime staple in Peru, India, and many other countries for centuries.
