Superfoods to the Rescue!

So I’m sure all of you, my enlightened readers, have heard of superfoods. Let’s face it, everything is now toting the claim that they have or are a superfood. It’s madness! How are people supposed to know what’s true and if it is even worth trying?

Well I would like to explain to you everything there is to know about superfoods.

The FDA says that superfoods have been shown to increase our overall health (well of course!) Superfoods help us ward off disease and illness, give us more energy, keep us at an ideal body weight and help us feel/look our best. The best way to find superfoods would be to eat more whole, unprocessed foods…

Look for fresh, unheated…

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Nuts (RAW! Not roasted, toasted, salted…all those methods leech nutrients!)
  • Seeds

These whole, fresh, unprocessed foods are like rocket fuel for our body. By eating these items we are providing our amazing bodies with nutrient dense foods filled with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes that are necessary for optimum health.

Here are a few examples of superfoods:

  • Fruits: blueberries, acai berry (my favorite), pomegranate, raspberry…
  • Vegetables: kale, spinach, peppers… basically everything that has a vibrant color!
  • Nuts: walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, coconuts (the water is amazing, so hydrating!) pecans…
  • Seeds: sunflower, chia, pumpkin, quinoa, sesame, wild rice…

So be sure to eat more of these amazing superfoods and incorporate them in your everyday life.  I promise, it will change you! I’ll be adding some recipes which incorporate superfoods so keep an eye out!

Peace & Love!
