This post is sponsored by Grocery Outlet but the content & opinions expressed here are mine.


Superfoods are good for the mind, body, & soul. But what in the world is a superfood? A superfood is defined as a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health & well-being. Get the inside scoop vegan superfoods that you should add to your grocery list immediately.


I bought all my superfood goodies from Grocery Outlet, a family-owned business that offers high-quality products at 40-70% less than traditional grocery stores. I'm a Grocery Outlet fan because I've been able to try name brand products (makeup, food, kitchen, etc.) at a fraction of the cost. 


They have an entire section devoted to organic, specialty, healthy, & natural foods – they call it NOSHI only spent $25.41 & I bought: nut butter, spirulina powder, kombucha, pure maple syrup, organic pure vanilla extract, vegetable broth, pistachios,  & avocado oil! I'm honest when I say I love shopping at Grocery Outlet! So, without further ado, let's learn about these superfoods & then go eat them.


Avocado oil is one of few edible oils not derived from seeds. It's pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit. Avocado oil is a good source of lutein, which is known for its essential roll in eye health.

Pistachios are one of the most fiber-rich nuts around, right after almonds. One serving/1 oz. of pistachios gives you 2.9 grams of fiber.

Almond Cashew Butter

Almonds are the highest fiber nut out there. Cashews contain vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6, folate, vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol), & vitamin K (phylloquinone). Oh & nut butter is a decent protein source as well.


Maple Syrup

In comparison to sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup or white table sugar, maple syrup contains higher levels of nutrients & antioxidants. Maple syrup contains up to 24 different antioxidants. Plus, it's an excellent vegan alternative to honey.

Spirulina

This freshwater plant is used worldwide as both superfood & dietary supplement. Initial studies show that spirulina could help in the production of antibodies, infection-fighting proteins, & cells that improve immunity.

Vanilla Extract

Pure vanilla extract is antibacterial & can help reduce inflammation. Plus, vanilla is incredibly versatile & that's one of its biggest benefits. Add it to pancakes, smoothie, coffee, oatmeal, sauces. The options are limitless.

Which of these superfoods do you already have in your cabinet? And which are you adding to your grocery list? :]

    Yum! Obsessed with just about everything on this list. I wish we could use spirulina more though, but sadly my partner is allergic. Weird allergy to have right!?

  3. These all sound so great! I'm not vegan, but I like vegan food and try to eat meat-free options as much as possible to reduce-so I'm going to try more of these!
