Superfoods on the menu
The world is going crazy for superfoods and with good reason! Keen to get in on the health kick? We’re here to help you out, let us talk you through the superfoods on our menu.
First of all, what’s a superfood? For a food to be considered a superfood it has to be high in nutrients and extremely beneficial to health.
Quinoa is one of the biggest health foods on the market right now! It’s high in dietary fibre which helps keep your digestive system running smoothly, full of essential amino acids, rich in iron and magnesium and very high in protein.
Like what your hear? Give our fresh and delicious Quinoa, Puy Lentil and Halloumi Salad a try!
Yup, that’s right. Regular ol’ broccoli is a superior vegetable. It’s full of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C and folate (thought to reduce risk of heart disease, strokes and cancer).
If you think you might now be developing a special place in your heart for broccoli you can find some in our scrumptious Courgette Ribbon Salad.
Spinach being good for us isn’t exactly news, but did you know that spinach is packed with antioxidants, vitamins AND anti-inflammatories? Spinach helps to promote good vision and strong bones.
Luckily for you we’ve got a spinach side that is just pure perfection. Order our Creamed Spinach with herby breadcrumbs for a tasty health boost.
Eggs are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B2, B12 and D making eggs beneficial to your immune and nervous systems. These little nutritious gems contain a whole load of other vitamins and minerals besides as well as being a good source of protein -they really do cover all angles.

Lentils are the unsung hero of the pulse world. They’ve got a health dose of protein and iron as well as having a low glycemic index (GI) value. This means that they don’t drastically raise your blood sugar levels which means that you’ll be able to use the energy the lentils give you for longer!
