How to Nourish Your Body Even When You're Busy

It doesn't matter how many health buzzwords you pack into a recipe; if you don't have time to make it, it's not going to happen. Unfortunately, the fast pace of our modern lives doesn't allow for much downtime, and despite our best intentions, nutrition often gets kicked to the bottom of our to-do lists. But what if we told you it is possible to put the "super" back into your daily diet without taking too much of your precious time? Nutrition expert, yoga guru, and TV star Julie Montagu of The Flexi Foodie is a busy mother of four, but she doesn't let that be an excuse for not eating healthily and taking care of herself.

In fact, Montagu has made it her life's work to educate people on just how simple it is. Her new book, Superfoods Superfast, does just that, with 100 plant-based recipes that take 20 minutes or less to cook and pack a punch in nutritional value. "With busy lives and the constant demands that go hand in hand with striking a work-family-play balance, superfoods give us energy when we need a healthy boost in our day," she said. We couldn't agree more. We took five with the master chef on the superfood superheroes we all need in our cupboards, her favorite snacks to beat the afternoon slump, and how she sneaks greens into her kids' meals.
