“I don’t have time to eat!”
“I am trying to lose weight, but I am hungry.”
“I skip meals to save calories!”
“I am tired by 2pm”
“I am killing myself in the gym, but can’t get the results I want.”
“I have pregnancy morning sickness and so nauseous I can’t eat!”
Sound familiar? You need SUPERFOODS!
WHAT ARE SUPERFOODS?
There’s no official scientific definition of “Superfood”, but it’s generally accepted that superfoods contain high levels of much-needed vitamins and minerals. They can also be a source of antioxidants, substances that shield our bodies from cell damage and help prevent disease. Superfoods help you feel more energetic, and even lose weight! Here are my favorites!
Dairy with Probiotics: Protein and probiotics to fill the belly, improve digestion and boost immunity.
Blueberries & Strawberries: Fiber, Vitamin C and antioxidants to boost immunity, fight free radicals.
Kale: Highest antioxidant level of all fruits/veggies. Also high in fiber, calcium and iron.
Chia: Loaded with the most essential fatty acids of any known plant, including omega-3s.
Oatmeal: High in fiber and antioxidants, lowers cholesterol levels, aids in digestion.
Spinach: Antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and vitamins to promote vision and bone health.
Almonds: Most nutritionally dense nut, high in fiber, potassium, and many other nutrients.
Pumpkin: Loaded with antioxidants and beta-carotene for immunity and eye health.
Apples: High in fiber, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, cancers, diabetes and asthma.
Spirulina: Algae powder high in protein, antioxidants, B-vitamins and iron. Great for vegetarians.
Avocado: Unique fruit, high in healthy fats, fiber and more potassium than a banana.
Hemp Seeds: High in insoluble and soluble fiber, aids as a natural appetite suppressant.
Cacao Powder: High in flavonoids for lower blood pressure and increased blood flow.
Goji Berries: High in protein, vitamin C and antioxidants to boost immunity and circulation.
Flaxseed: High in omega-3s, fiber, and protein to improve digestion and reduce sugar cravings.
Acai Berries: Loaded with antioxidants and trace minerals, and a good source of fat.
COOL….BUT HOW DO I GET THEM?
The fastest, easiest and cheapest way to get these amazingly nutritious foods is with a SHAKE!
Many people think a shake is a snack, but it can be a meal replacement too!
