Fill Your Plate with Superfoods

(Family Features) Superfoods, by definition, are calorie sparse and nutrient dense, adding health and flavor benefits to dishes. They are superior sources of antioxidants and essential nutrients - nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves. Adding them to your daily diet, you can add freshness and flavor to meals and snacks you love.

Omega-3s, Please
The edible skin and soft bones give Alaska canned pink salmon four times the omega-3s EPA and DHA, twelve times the vitamin D as many popular canned meats and fish, 25 percent of adult RDA for calcium and nearly the daily reference amount for selenium. Stir them in and enjoy. Buy any brand - look for Alaska on the lid or label. For more information, visit www.wildalaskaseafood.com.

High-Quality Plant-Based Protein
Having a simple, but nutritious on-the-go snack can sure come in handy. All-natural and certified gluten-free, SOYJOY snack bars are baked with pieces of real fruit and non-genetically modified ground whole soybeans. The protein in soybeans provides all nine essential amino acids, making them a source of high-quality, complete protein. Available in seven flavors, at only 130-140 calories, SOYJOY is easy, tasty and wholesome - perfect for any snack occasion. For more information, visit www.soyjoy.com.

Creamy & Calcium Rich

With a rich, creamy taste and a wide variety of uses, Blue Diamond's Almond Breeze Almondmilk is a super food staple in kitchens everywhere. Almond Breeze can be enjoyed alone, over cereal, in smoothies and in cooked dishes - making it as versatile as it is delicious. Almondmilk is low in calories and high in calcium - plus, it is gluten and cholesterol-free. The unsweetened version of Almond Breeze Original provides a touch of the almond's natural sweetness, but eliminates added sugar. For more information, visit www.AlmondBreeze.com.

Packed with Potassium
Not only are potatoes delicious and versatile, but they also pack a nutritional punch. One medium potato has 110 calories and is free of fat, sodium, cholesterol and gluten. Potatoes provide more potassium than a banana and almost half of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. They're also a good source of vitamins and minerals like B6, iron and fiber, which can aid in weight loss and lower cholesterol. For more information, visit www.eatwisconsinpotatoes.com.
