If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past 10 years, then you’ll know exactly what I mean by the term ”superfoods”. And if you aren’t 100% sure what superfoods are, you’ve definitely heard about their potential nutritional benefits from your favourite health gurus on Instagram.

With the amount of research on superfoods out there today, it’s not difficult to find out they all contain high levels of much-needed vitamins, minerals & nutrients, which are all amazing for your skin. Not to mention the antioxidants, good fats & healthy properties that are believed to lower the risk of certain diseases, as well as promoting weight loss.

And to top it all off, all of these healthy vegan superfoods are affordable & conveniently accessible at our fingertips.
So if you like to eat almonds as a healthy snack or you’re one of those people who love having a Macha tea as soon as you wake up, then you are already one step ahead!

I really like to try and incorporate superfoods into my daily meals. I usually have flaxseeds in my morning smoothie for my Omega 3 essential fatty acids, since it tastes no different adding them in. Lately I’ve also been creating a lot of yummy & chocolatey snacks/desserts with cacao powder (another cheap superfood).

Other superfoods you can buy at your local supermarket include blueberries, spinach, kiwi, kale, sweet potato, dragon fruit, walnuts, oats, pomegranate, avocado, pumpkin, cauliflower, collard greens, olives, edamame, strawberries, watermelon, lentils, legumes, asparagus, bananas, blackberries, soya milk, brazil nuts, watercress & so much more!

Here are 19 affordable vegan superfoods you can easily find on Amazon, including recipes & inspiration to add these amazingly healthy ingredients into your vegan meals.
