CHEF’S NOTE
Superfoods are not only exotic fruits like goji, acai or maqui.
 
Everyday superfoods include spinach, broccoli, kale, blueberries, blackberries, sweet potato, quinoa, brown rice and oats, as they are all nutrient-packed foods beneficial for your health and wellbeing.
 
A typical superfood breakfast for me includes protein, vegies and a handful of berries.
 
My favourite breakfast protein is organic poached eggs.
 
If it’s not protein based, for breakfast I would have oats that I have soaked overnight.
 
To that I usually add a few superfoods and coconut yoghurt.
