Super food is a loose term being thrown around by the health community. What does it really mean? Food that are the most nutrient dense in the world. They are full of range from alkaline-forming, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, calcium, electrolytes, essential fats, iron, phytonutrients, chlorophyll, omega 3 and 6 proteins. Wow sounds great, where do I get these wonder foods?
They are in so many foods around us. Green leafy vegetables, starchy vegetables, quinoa, seeds, certain types of oils, nuts, fruits, and harder to find chlorella, spirulina, maca and stevia.
Our bodies are constantly in search of balance, everything we eat has a benefit or consequence. It can be immediate such as eating sugar or take time such as a wholesome complex carbohydrate that releases as steady flow of energy for up to 72 hours. Take fast food our bodies use almost all of our available energy sources to digest. Leaving little room for thinking, being active and other bodily functions. Super foods are the opposite because they have very little impact on the energy taken to digest them. Not only that but they also provide energy, clarity, digestive aid, strengthen and endurance.
