AN AUTUMN ICON GETS A SEASONAL SUPERFOOD BOOST

Posted by October 10, 2017

The arrival of autumn signals one of the most exciting foodie seasons, serving up serious inspiration when it comes to comforting home cooked dishes. However, as the leaves begin to fall – so can energy levels, as seasonal sniffles threaten more tricks than they do treats.

That’s why this October, we’ve teamed up with the super talented recipe developer and food blogger, Eli Brecher, to bring you a showstopping, superfood Spicy Pumpkin Soup.

Served in the skin, it makes the absolute most of the season’s most iconic squash, putting a warm smile on your face while providing an extra boost of flu-fighting nutrients (it’ll look pretty stunning on your Insta feed too…).

Packed with energy-boosting B12 and super nutrient dense, chlorophyll, just a spoonful of Bioglan Superfoods Green Boost, stirred into your pretty pumpkin pot is all you’ll need to speed up your metabolism and provide your body with the iron it needs to help prevent tiredness and fatigue as the days become shorter.
