Green Lentils (Ecological): Favored for their sky-high protein and fibre content, lentils are pea-sized powerhouses crammed full of essential nutrients like folic acid, iron, potassium, copper, and molybdenum.
Tomato: The quintessential summer fruit, made stronger by immune-strengthening and skin-perking Vitamins A and C.
Sun Dried Tomatoes: These intensely flavored, sun-kissed beauties are a concentrated source of nutrients. They provide Vitamins C and K, iron, and lycopene, an antioxidant associated with lower risk of certain cancers.
Tomato Paste: Just a tablespoon of tomato paste is a good source of antioxidants and has 3 to 6 percent of your recommended daily value of iron, potassium and B vitamins.
Broccoli: Broccoli are anti-inflammatory powerhouses, jam-packed with antioxidative Vitamins A, C, and E, plus fibre, manganese, selenium, and zinc.
Onions: Have many possible health benefits including reducing the risk of obesity, heart disease, and cancer. They are high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Nutritional Yeast: Different from Baking Yeast (hint: it’s inactive), nutritional yeast is an antiviral, antibacterial immune-booster. From a taste perspective, it also enhances flavor in cooking (you’re welcome).
Garlic: Garlic is fill of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B6, manganese, selenium, vitamin c, iron, potassium, and copper.
Oregano: With lots of dietary fibre, minerals, and flavour, it’s Vitamin K that gives oregano its bone growth and density powers. Throw in a dash of anti-inflammatory action and you’ve got the perfect herb.
Himalaya Pink Salt (Ecological): Himalayan pink salt contains over 84 minerals and trace elements, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, so it does more than just make your food taste better.
Black Pepper: Black pepper is an excellent source of manganese and Vitamin K, a very good source of copper and dietary fibre, and a good source of iron, chromium and calcium.
Olive Oil: The star of the Mediterranean Diet, extra virgin olive oil is overflowing with antioxidants and fatty acids, working to keep cells healthy and in tip-top form.
Spring Onions: Spring onions are rich in vitamins including Vitamin C, Vitamin B2 and thiamine. They also contain Vitamin A and K.
