UAE Superfoods – Are They In Your Fridge?

HUMMUS
Great source of fibre and the healthy fat and low levels of saturated fat make it a good choice for an appetizer. Serve it with whole wheat crackers or carrot sticks to give it a further nutrition boost. Hummus also contains tahini which is a good source of fatty acids – packing both omega-3 and omega-6.

DATES
Dates are a good source of fibre and potassium (which helps your nerves, muscles and heart). A 75g serving comes in at 300 calories.

POMEGRANATE
Packed with antioxidants, these tough looking fruits can help rid the body of free radicals that cause cell damage.

PARSLEY
When Middle Eastern chefs stopped using parsley as a garnish and threw it into the famed taboleh salad they made a smart move.  This herb is not only great for digestion, but it’s a good source of iron as well.

FAVA BEANS
This nutrient-rich legume is high in protein and dietary fibre, but low in fat. It’s also an excellent source of vitamins and nutrients.
