Fill Your Plate With Superfoods

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- (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.
