We are going to do our best to outline what are super foods and their benefits here. However, more information on Super Foods can be found in our superfoods book on Amazon kindle. We like this because it is available for download immediately and is much more comprehensive than what we talk about in this article.
Food is the basic building blocks that our bodies run on – it is the fuel for every task in our body at a macro and micro level. The type of fuel that you consume will affect your health and your day-to-day lifestyle and there are some that are much more beneficial than others.
Many pains, discomforts, and illnesses that you have learned to live with are due to NOT having the right nutrients or not having enough nutrients for your body to function optimally. The body is able to manufacture many substances and chemicals but it has to have basic proteins, vitamins, minerals, etc. or else those functions are decreased or even temporarily ceased in some cases.
Conversely, there are definite benefits to eating Super Foods which include more energy, better digestion, better resistance to sickness and disease, better memory, and more. Because most of these super foods are found naturally, they are quite delicious and refreshing to eat compared to empty calories of manufactured food. Many of the super foods are available within most grocery stores and in the produce and meat aisles. You will be surprised to know you probably pass over a hundred superfoods every time you do the shopping. Stay away from the interior isles which usually have the manufactured and chemically modified foods.
Let’s face it, when we were created, nature was sufficient to provide all of the nutrients that we need including the vital minerals and vitamins. The more natural foods we consume, the better off our lives and bodies will be. Consuming natural and healthy super food will enable us to live healthier and more enjoyable lives.
Let me tell you from personal experience that I have been eating super foods for a few years, and like all humans sometimes I succumb to eating things I shouldn’t such as Pepsi and potato chips. Within a few hours, I begin feeling tired, worn out, and unmotivated. Another pleasant side effect that I have noticed of eating healthy super foods is that my hunger is suppressed for longer periods.
Now I’m not saying that I never feel hungry, but it takes quite a long time after a superfood based meal until I begin to feel like I “need” more food. Often, the next mealtime comes and I realize that I haven’t felt hungry because my body has been happily humming along at a steady digestion and consumption pace.
If feeling better were not enough of a reason to look at a super food diet, consider the long-term effects that healthy eating has on your body (or maybe I should say lack of long-term effects). Disease, cancer, cancer, and fatigue are symptoms of poor diet so take this opportunity to consider how much better you could feel and perform if you implement a healthy diet.
The Super Foods book that we are referring to is not perfect and may not heal every disease, but it is a great place to begin or a great continuation of doing your best to have a healthy life.
