Usually when you think of winter treats, you think of hot chocolates, rich flavours and hearty foods, right? But as much as we love our winter splurges, we hate the winter weight that inevitably comes with it.
So what do we treat ourselves with when we have the winter munchies, that isn't bad for us and will even boost our immune systems? Put down the junk food, because we have the answer!
If you have yet to try our Dark Cacao & Kakadu Plum WPI blend, then you are missing out on a unique and tasty experience. Not only do you get the warming rich cacao flavour that will warm you up on the inside, you also get the subtle plum flavour of the Kakadu Plum. As well the many nutritional benefits from those two ingredients alone, this premium blend also has the added boost of chia seeds and maca, which will also help your body fight off infections and help to boost your overall wellness.
Here is why our Dark Cacao & Kakadu Plum WPI is the perfect winter blend.
KAKADU PLUM (GUBINGE)
Kakadu Plum or Gubinge is a bush plum found in Kakadu and the Kimberleys. Our Gubinge is wild harvested by the indigenous people who are bringing the community back to the ancestral ways. Kakadu Plum is one of the highest natural sources of Vitamin C.
Raw cacao has one of the highest antioxidant ratings measured and an array of biologically active flavanols, catchetins and polyphenols. These beneficial compounds scavenge free radicals from the blood and reduce damage caused by aging processes. It also boosts cognitive function and helps to maintain a healthy heart.
Chia Seeds are a remarkable nineteen percent Omega 3 fatty acids, in the form of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) which is essential for cardiovascular health and lowering inflammation. They are also a fantastic source of dietary fibre and help maintain digestive health.
Maca root is a potent natural sexual activator that helps fight fatigue and tiredness and stimulates the hormonal system. It's also brilliant for your immune system because it is packed full of vitamins and mineral and has 19 amino acids.
The whey protein isolate will help to build lean muscle, strengthen your immune system and combat hunger cravings! It's an ideal whey protein powder for women and men. Steph Lowe, the Natural Nutritionist, is an advocate of this blend; 'Antioxidants and magnesium are essential for exercise recovery and the addition of maca root and chia seeds aids hormonal control and satiety, making this product perfect for weight management too!'
So there you have it! This is the everyday superfood blend that will do wonders for your health, protect your immune system against the colder weather, and be delicious enough to satisfy all your food cravings!
So start whipping up those cacao and Kakadu Plum smoothie ideas, because this blend is perfectly versatile. However, we can't get past the classic chocolatey berry taste of this blend in a simple smoothie with some frozen cherries and Davidson Plum jam. Delish!
