SuperFoods for a Super YOU!


"People kill themselves with their knives and their forks." ~ Jack LaLane

That quote basically says it all. We are slowly killing ourselves with the decisions we make on a daily basis regarding the foods we choose to eat. It doesn't have to be that way. What if we all make the decision to nourish our bodies with healthy "superfoods" that are easily found in the grocery store? Use these foods to help "crowd out" the bad foods and you'll be feeling and looking your best!

What is a "superfood"?

Superfoods are nutrient-rich foods that are scientifically proven to help fight chronic disease, inflammation, and bolster immune function.

Vegetables

While I don't believe you can ever have too many veggies, these vegetables are about the healthiest you can add to your diet to get the highest cancer-fighting and immune boosting benefits:

Kale

Spinach

Bean Sprouts

Watercress

Brussels Sprouts

Bok Choy

Cabbage

Garlic

Romaine

Collard Greens

Swiss Chard

Broccoli

Mustard Greens

Cauliflower

Artichoke

Arugula

Red Pepper

Turnip Greens

Radish

Carrots

Mushroom

Onion

Fruit

Add these sweet fruits to your diet to lessen the sweet cravings and boost your immune system naturally:

Strawberries

Blackberries

Blueberries

Pomegranate

Plums

Cherries

Apples

Mango

Papaya

Tomato

Raspberries

Oranges

Avocado Grapefruit

Other Superfoods

There are many other foods that can help fight chronic disease and inflammation (which is the cause of most disease, by the way). Among them are beans (all varieties) seeds (flax, sunflower and sesame are best) and nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews).

By adding these superfoods to your shopping list, you will not only crowd out some of the not-so-healthy foods, but you'll soon see other benefits such as increased energy, glowing skin and even weight loss.

Try incorporating at least one new superfood into your diet each week. Some you'll love, others you may not. Once you discover your favorites, try different recipes and cooking methods for each so you can keep it exciting!
