With a roll of events on the agenda, there’s no time than the present to embark on a healthier eating scheme.
While there are countless detox juice programmes and diets on the market, we’ll be ditching fad diets and taking a more enjoyable route by cleansing our fridge of all things sugary and salt-laden, and replacing them with nutritious nibbles.
Detox foods needn’t be tasteless or unappetising, now more than ever the options for healthy bites are bountiful. So we’ve scoured the aisles at Carrefour supermarket in the Dubai shopping malls to find you our top three nutrition-boosting bites to try.
You may have heard that these indigo berries are an antioxidant, but did you also know that just a handful a day can help lower your risk of heart disease and cancer as well as providing powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. Blueberries also come packed with potassium and vitamin C.
This curly green veggie is not only a great addition to your morning smoothie, but makes for a tasty and nourishing supper too. Bursting with antioxidants, vitamin C and beta-carotene, kale is best enjoyed steamed and topped off with a sprinkle of fresh chilli and a squeeze of lemon.
This exotic fruit has major superfood credentials and is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. We recommend cooking with coconut oil, which is a healthier alternative to other oils such as olive or sunflower oil. We’ve also taken to keeping a jar in our beauty cabinet to use as a moisturising treatment on hair and skin.
All items are available at Carrefour supermarket in Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira and City Centre Mirdif.
