One of the things that makes me really happy is healthy food. I love being surrounded with all things healthy and colorful. Thus, I will go gaga inside an organic shop or at the fruits and veggie section of a supermarket. I love dishing out colorful meals and smoothies for my kids too. :)
Yesterday, I was one very happy health freak mommy when I received my package of healthy fruit powder from Super Sprout Malaysia, comprising of blueberry powder, beetroot powder and ginger powder. Thank you so much for sending these good stuff to me Reako Sdn Bhd! I love them so much!!
Why is Super Sprout so good?
Super Sprout powders are natural food powder which can be used in cooking, baking (bread, cookies, cakes, tarts), smoothies, yogurt, salad, soup, sauce and basically any recipe.
Not only can Super Sprout powders improve the colour and taste of a dish in a very natural way, the food powders also enrich nutrient profile and improve digestibility of the nutrients found in them.
Using Super Sprout powders is easy peasy too. Just a teaspoon a day — sprinkle, stir, mix or add into any dish you like. No fuss, no waste, no mess.
Super Sprout powders are suitable for the whole family’s consumption, including children of one year and above.
Super Sprout powders come from 100% Australian grown fruits and vegetables.
I could not wait to try out the powders and made a quick dash to the kitchen to whip up my smoothie-of-the-day, which was orange + green apple + Super Sprout blueberry powder for the girls.
I whizzed a teaspoon of Super Sprout blueberry powder with the fruits for 20 seconds on my Blendtec blender. Then, sprinkled another teaspoon for decor. I was worried that my fussy girls wouldn’t like the taste but they were awed by the vibrant colors of their smoothie and bolted down their smoothie in a jiffy!
Mine was orange + green apple + beetroot powder. I find that beetroot powder is much more palatable than taken raw. The beetroot powder is super fine and slightly saltish, which tantalizes my palate. I love it!
I used a teaspoon of Super Sprout beetroot powder to pulse it with my fruits and sprinkled another teaspoon for deco. Don’t you just like the reddish pinkish hue of my smoothie? It’s good stuff, bursting with flavors and nutrients ok.
I wasn’t in the mood to eat any meat yesterday (again!), so I whipped up something that’s excitingly meat-free for lunch.
I had toasted sprouted wheat bread with cream cheese and Super Sprout blueberry powder. The combo tastes like blueberry cheese spread, with a hint of saltiness and tanginess. Just perfect for health freaks who are on a low-carb diet. You can drizzle some Manuka honey, maple syrup or palm sugar syrup on the toast, if you fancy it slightly sweet.
Crispy, yummy and wholesome sprouted wheat toast for lunch, with a hard boiled free-range chicken egg, avocado and fresh blueberries. I love the colors on my plate – so vibrant, so enticing and so healthy – anytime better than a plate of nasi lemak or chicken rice.
In the afternoon, I made myself a cuppa Super Sprout ginger powder tea, sweetened with palm sugar syrup. I used a teaspoon heap of ginger powder and a drizzle of palm sugar syrup to a cup of hot water. Drinking this ginger tea brought back sweet memories of my confinement days where I was treated like a queen — I had sumptuous meals in my bedroom 4-5 times a day and gulped down cups after cups of ginger tea.
Ginger is well-known for reducing gas and painful spasms in the intestinal tract. It also reduces menstrual cramps, has a warming effect, stimulates circulation, inhibits such bacteria as Salmonella and protozoa and prevents stomach ulcers.
