The SuperFoods Way with Mumafit

Share your blogging journey with us. When did it begin and why did you decide to start? 

I started my Mumafit blog about 2 years ago. I was pregnant with my third baby and my husband and I had decided to develop a pre and post natal fitness app (The Mumafit App). We both had degrees in fitness and had lots of experience either training pregnant women, or for me, having mastered the art of pre and post natal exercise through personal experience. I decided to blog to create greater exposure for the app initially, but then I realised how thirsty women were for quality information on wellbeing during and post pregnancy, and this spurred me on and eventually lead to my niche life and wellness coaching.  

Outside of creating beautiful content for your followers, what are you most passionate about in life?

  I am truly driven to live a life that is rich in experience, explores the depths of our souls, our connections with others and allows us each to live with our own style of emotional and physical freedom. As my children grow, my focus remains firmly on raising them in this manner. We love to get away as often as we can in our full size old bus converted into a motorhome so that we can leave the city behind us, connect with the ocean and spend more quality time as a family. What is your daily health, wellness and/or fitness routine Since having 3 children in 4 years, time is hard to find, so I only exercise formally 2 or 3 times a week with yoga and strength training. My life is full of incidental activity though as we love to get outside and walk the beach or the streets with the kids. I try hard to remember to hydrate properly every day and eat as healthily as we can. Food has become such an integral part of our wellbeing, keeping us from falling ill and providing us the energy to live a vital life with our kids. We are not saints though and enjoy indulging ourselves every now and then. When it comes to food and exercise, I don’t believe in extremes or allowing an obsession with wellbeing become just another stress in your life – so keeping things moderate and simple is key.

What’s your favourite way to utilise Super Foods to help you get through a busy day?

Mmm tough question as I’ve learnt to sneak them in at any opportunity. My breakfast is always loaded with superfoods, so that if the day gets away from me, I’ve already had a good start. Then it’s a toss up between smoothies and bliss balls. I’ll take either! For more info or to follow Muma Fit - click here.

5 Superfoods For Your Heart

Keeping your heart healthy is as much about putting the right nutrients in to your body as it is about keeping the wrong substances out.  Foods that contain saturated fats, salt and high levels of processed sugar are all "No-no's" (as is smoking). If you are concerned about your heart, eating well and avoiding the above foods and toxins may help. Eating more of the below 5 superfoods for a healthy heart may also be of benefit to overall heart health. Looking after your heart is serious business. As this article is being written, heart disease is the leading underlying cause of death in Australia. If you have serious concerns about heart health, talking to your doctor should be your first step. Eating the foods below may help support your heart, but just eating these foods and neglecting other lifestyle factors that can contribute to heart problems will not guarantee a healthy heart.  

5 Superfoods For Your Heart

 

1. Salmon

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce your risk of heart disease according to the Australian Heart Foundation. Omega-3 may also help reduce inflammation of blood vessels and reduce blood clotting. Try our Chia-Crusted Salmon recipe for a tasty, healthy way to get more salmon into your diet.  

2. Chia Seeds

Chia Seeds are - like salmon - rich in omega-3. In fact, on a pund-for-pound basis, chia seeds contain more omega-3 than salmon. Furthermore, chia seeds are rich in fibre. Diets high in fibre can reduce the risk of heart disease. Try our Chia Cacao Coconut Cluster recipe for a treat that you won't believe is heart-healthy.  

3. Tofu and/or Soy Milk

Both of these food sources contain niacin, folate, calcium magnesium and potassium. These nutrients are crtitical to help support the heart. Try our Banana Split Smoothie recipe - a delicious way to drink soy milk and top up fibre, protein and antioxidants.  

4. Acai

Acai is packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants are important for helping prevent potential cellular damage caused by free radicals - unstable molecules that are present in our body and attack cells in an effort to stabilise themselves. This damage can cause inflammation, and antioxidants can thus protect our body from the inflammation. Inflammation can be an aggravating factor in heart disease. Preliminary studies also suggest acai may be helpful for reducing blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels. Try our Acai Berry Breakfast recipe for a heart healthy start to the date.  

5. Cacao

You may have heard of studies that suggest a potential link between daily (dark) chocolate consumption and heart health. This link is likely because dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa) is rich in polyphenols: substances that can help reduce clotting, blood pressure and inflammation. What you may not know is that dark chocolate, and the cocoa used to make it, are actually the nutritionally inferior by-products of raw cacao. Raw cacao is rich in a number of nutrients that are critical for supporting heart health. It is the base ingredient used to make cocoa / dark chocolate (cacao is processed and cooked to turn it into cocoa, whihc is then processed further to create dark chocolate. This processing and cooking destroys much of the original nutritional content, so choosing cacao over cocoa is a good idea). Try our Choc Chilli Cacao Mousse recipe for a decadent, heart-friendly dessert. ------ This article is presented by our online health partner Health365.

Plus our natural tropical flavoured spirulina tastes great! So good you can drink it with just water! NAW_SuperFoods_Render_SPIRULINA-TROPICAL_10-14 CACAO POWDER When it comes to cacao powder, some are more superior to others.

3 Recipes for Strong Bones

3 Recipes for Strong Bones

Try these 3 recipes from our Superfoods Recipes archive to help you get more calcium and magnesium into your diet to support stronger bones and good muscle health.  

1. Banana Split Smoothie

Calcium and magnesium are both critical for maintaining strong bones as we age. And the ingredients in this recipe have magnesium and calcium in spades. The recipe also contains bananas, which can help the body better absorb calcium. Use soy milk over almond milk (soy milk has more calcium) to make this simple, tasty smoothie even better at protecting your bones. Try the Banana Split Smoothie now.  

2. Chia-Crusted Salmon

Whilst the Super Chia Seeds in this recipe are rich in calcium (which we already know is important for joint health), salmon is rich in vitamin D. Vitamin D makes your body much more efficient at absorbing calcium, and is very important for maintaining strong bones over time. Try the Chia-Crusted Salmon now.  

3. Chocolate Date Balls

Several  studies have found that the more magnesium people consume in their food, the denser their bones as they age. Dense bones are strong bones. There are a number of foods that are high in Magnesium, but our favourite is Cacao. Use our organic cacao, which is ultra-high in magnesium, to support bone and muscle health for years to come. Try the Chocolate Date Balls now.
