Purple foods are full of health benefits, including antioxidants and minerals, and even an ability to reduce your waistline!
The Maqui berry from Chile is a relatively recent addition to the long list of ‘superfoods’ available to us now, and it’s incredibly high in an antioxidant called anthocyanin, specifically a type called delphinidins. This type of antioxidant has powerful anti inflammatory effects, and can also inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells. Maqui berries can also suppress blood glucose, smoothing out energy levels and preventing the formation of new fat cells, thus trimming down your tum!
Whilst maqui can be pretty pricey, the good new is that you can get all these benefits from easy-to-find foods too! So. start stocking up on the following list in order to reap the benefits of purple power:
- Concord grapes
- Red Cabbage
- Red wine
- Purple Brocolli
- Purple carrots
