Goji berries (also known as wolf berries) have been showing up in superfood lists more and more the past few years, and with good reason: they’re packed with good-for-you antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The berries have more plant-based protein than any other fruit and supply vitamins A and C along with a dose of fiber and iron. Loaded with antioxidants, goji berries also contain all of the essential amino acids.
This superfood can be eaten raw, fresh or dried, or be made into juices, smoothies and teas. You can also stir the berries into baked goods, soups or just about anything you cook! And did we mention they’re just as tasty as the more commonly known berries?
