The “Seriously, It’s Healthy!” Way to Eat Chocolate for Breakfast
Standout Superfoods: Cacao powder, spinach, chia seeds
Health benefits: The powder is high in flavonoids, antioxidants that may help lower blood pressure and inflammation. It also helps balance out the super-green ingredients—spinach and zucchini—in this smoothie from Sarah Wilson’s new The I Quit Sugar Cookbook. And speaking of greens, spinach has iron and magnesium, plus vitamin A and lutein, two nutrients that can help keep your vision sharp. Chia seeds are rich in fiber and protein, to help you feel fuller longer and stay energized, and turn pleasantly soft when you add them to liquids.
