If you want to give it a go, we’ve created a 7-day meal plan to help keep you on track in your quest for balance. A round-up of our favourite recipes and tips to make going superpowered 7 days a week easy – and delicious!

 

From our brand new Supergreens Seeded Loaf recipe to tried, tested and much-tasted comfort foods like our Superpowered Pancake recipe, a superfood boost is just the case of shaking it into some of your daily favourites. So tuck in and achieve the balance.

 

You Will Need:

  • 500g mixed grain bread flour
  • 2 tbsp Bioglan Supergreens Powder
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 2 tbsp chopped almonds (optional)
  • 1 sachet fast-action yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 300 ml warm water
  • pinch of salt

 

Method:

  • Combine the flour, Supergreens Powder, seeds and yeast
  • Separately, combine the oil, water and honey then add to the dry mix
  • Stir together to make a soft dough (you may need more flour or water, depending on consistency), adding the raisins and almonds halfway through, if using
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes or so, adding more flour if needed
  • Add the dough to an oiled loaf tin, ensuring it is evenly spread
  • Cover with a tea-towel and leave to rise for an hour (the mixture should spring back up when pressed with your finger)
  • Brush with water and sprinkle with any leftover seeds
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at GM 6 / 200 C / 180 C (fan) for 35 mins (might need slightly more or less depending on your oven) until the loaf has risen and golden
  • Once baked, leave to cool on a rack. Paired perfectly with nut butter!
