For celebrity chef and cookbook author Candice Kumai, adding superfoods to meals—her Healthiest Year Ever tip for the month of June—is easy.

Kumai includes them in the 100-plus delicious green juice and smoothie recipes she created for her recent book, Clean Green Drinks.

But for those of us who prefer to chew our superfoods instead of sipping them, it can be tricky to figure out how to incorporate them into a dish without totally throwing off the recipe.

To help, Kumai shares these three tips for packing your meals with more nutrient-loaded superfoods:

1. Pea protein. Kumai loves pea protein for its “antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.” She likes adding a small scoop to pancake mix after a long weekend run.

2. Acai berries. “They’re packed with anthocyanins and flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants that may help aid in the prevention of cancer and the boosting of skin health,” she says. They pair perfectly with spinach, so make yourself a fruity summer salad on a hot day.

3. Bee pollen. Kumai says bee pollen is a holistic ingredient with nutritional superpowers. Instead of blending it in smoothies or eating it over yogurt, try it in DIY energy bars or sprinkle it in homemade salad dressings and on popcorn.
