Here's a sneak peek of the continuation of last week's episode over at Get-Fit-Guy.

Each week, over at the Quick & Dirty Tips Network, I produce a free, easy-to-read article, accompanied by a short 5-10 minute audio version of that article. Everything there is focused on the latest fitness research, exercise news, and quick and highly practical muscle gain, fat loss and physical performance tips. It’s called “The Get-Fit Guy’s Quick & Dirty Tips To Slim Down & Shape Up”.

Here's what we have from this week's episode “9 Healthy Ingredients for the Ultimate Fitness Smoothie: Part II“.

In last week’s article, you got the exact recipes for two epic smoothie ideas, and exactly what my current morning smoothie recipe looks like. In today’s article, we’re going to take a deep dive into some of the most interesting, fringe or tastiest superfood ingredients I’ve discovered to truly bring your smoothie taste and nutritional benefits to the next level.

Nine Essential Healthy Smoothie Ingredients

1:  Raw Organic Golden Incan Berries by Sunfood

Golden berries are considered to be one of the lost crops of the Incas, and one of the small selection of foods grown at the ancient mountaintop citadel of Machu Picchu. A nutritional powerhouse, golden berries contain vitamins C and A, iron, pectin, beta-carotene, protein, bioflavonoids and niacin, and have a mouth-watering, tangy sweetness that you'll love (and kids love them too!) I’ve tried a lot of golden berries, and Sunfood’s are by far the best. They’re soft and plump and sweet. They’ve got a delightful chewy quality, and a complex floral citrusy flavor, like kumquats and tangerines and roses.

    How should someone watching calorie intake approach these? Some of these are pretty high in calories. Thanks!

    1. Yep- if you're watching your calorie intake, I'd be careful with some of these ;)

        Thank you Ben. I ordered a few and I’m trying them in small doses. Some of the berries are very good and cacao nibs are awesome!

    An article on the nutrition of edible insects would be interesting and your summary
