5 Super Foods You Should Be Eating Daily


Brand - Appliances for the Raw Food Kitchenbanner

Everyone wants to live a long and healthy life. More and more people are buying the latest supplements and following the latest training fad. All of this is for naught if we eat garbage.

By this I mean, a diet that consists highly processed products and fast foods. You can buy every pill under the sun and work out like an Olympian, but if your diet is high in sugars, trans fats, and chemicals, you won’t see any progress.

Health and fitness has grown steadily into multi-billion dollar industries. As of late, the new buzzword in the media is super foods, but what exactly are they and why should you eat them? Good question.

Super foods are nutrient dense, low calorie foods that are chock-full of antioxidants and essential nutrients that our bodies cannot produce. In other words, these are the pound-for-pound Champions of healthy food.

Below are 5 super foods that you should be eating in some form every day.

  1. Kale is the most nutrient dense plant on the planet. An organic bundle will be under $3 and packed with calcium and vitamins B & C. Try baking your own kale chips.

They are a yummy alternative to potato chips. I use kale in my morning shakes and evening salads along with…


               2.Spinach is jam-packed with iron, Vitamins A & K, and the eye saving lutein. I also use this one in my salad and shakes or lightly cooked with grass-fed butter, sea salt, and fresh garlic.

Absolutely delicious!


3. Matcha green tea is a must for anyone looking to lose weight and get a ton of nutrients in one cup. The latest research shows that green tea can kill cancer cells by cutting off the blood supply to them.

When consumed with meals, green tea decreases the absorption of fat. Japanese matcha is the best.

Matcha, Green

4.Coconut is great for many things. During and after your workout, drink coconut water, instead of sports drinks, to replenish fluids and electrolytes that were lost in sweat.

Use coconut oil to cook because it is the most heat stable oil and supports a healthy heart. The medium chain triglycerides found in it feeds the brain so that it functions optimally while lauric acid supports a healthy immunity.

Coconut oil can also be used in your hair and on your skin as lotion.


                        5. Fermented foods are also known as prebiotics, which are foods that stimulate the growth of “good” bacteria in the gut. When the good guys outnumber the bad guys by a lot, then your health improves because your immune system is stronger.

Some good fermented options are miso soup, kefir, kimchee, sauerkraut, and natto. These are acquired tastes, but definitely worth trying.
