Goodness in a Jar

Dark red fruit contains antioxidants
News Release - Antioxidants Caught in a Jar
I have chatted on in the past about the benefits of antioxidants. I talked about rhubarb, goji berries, raisins and prunes.

Here are a couple of links to help you remember
Glutathione  - Major Antioxidant
Antioxidants in Rhubarb
Antioxidants in the Goji Berry
Quinoa - Antioxidant, Super Food
Rhubarb Compote
Quinoa Porridge

Well, all of these take a little work to make, not much though.
If you are the person who needs a quick, nutritious breakfast, well I found something interesting recently. It is only available at Aldi stores, but if you have one near you then it is worth stocking up ona few jars.
This product is called Berry Cocktail by Sweet Valley.
It contains strawberries, blackberries, black currants, blueberries and de-stoned Morello cherries.

We get lots of phyto-nutrients from red and perple fruit and they are full of antioxidants.

A Quick Breakfast
2 dessertspoons of Berry cocktail
1 dessertspoon of quinoa
1 dessertspoon of non fat yoghurt
Add 1/2 cup milk
And sprinkle over the top 1/2 teaspoon of ground chia seeds

Of course nothing beats fresh food, however it is not always possible to have on hand. It is good to have  something nutritious that we can use as a backup.

I hope you can find this product or keep you eye out for something similar in you supermarket travels.
