How Superfoods Fuel the World

Superfoods are the Fuel for your Body and your Brain

Superfoods-healthy-fruit-saladIn today’s world, we need superfoods because they can supply the energy and nutrition to keep us fit and full of power at all times. No matter if you are an artists or a parent, if you are a doctor or you’re still studying. If you don’t have the right nutrition in your body, you won’t be able to manage your daily tasks as well as you could. Superfoods are the fuel your body needs to function on100% of its possible power.

Modern civilization and advances in technology, in transportation and in internet communication have made it possible to order the best superfoods on Earth right to your doorstep today. The term “superfood” has been branded and stands for healthy foods that contain high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and proteins. Superfoods provide our body with more nutrition with eating less and superfoods don’t have to be expensive at all

The new superfood revolution has brought amazing foods like Acai, Goji, Cacao, Maca, Sumac and Turmeric into our diet. You will be surprised how well and immediately you can satisfy any number of cravings with only these few superfoods. You don’t have to get on a plane to fly to Brazil to get Acai Berries, they are now conveniently easy to acquire in your neighborhood or you can order them online.

You can easily blend superfoods into your daily diet at your own home with spring water: a dose of maca, an Andean tuber with hormone balancing properties and very high protein; hemp seeds, another great superfood high in amino acids and essential fatty acids (EFA); and a hint of agave syrup produced by a cactus, a great low glycemic sweetener. Top it off with a dash of raw cacao powder and it is delicious and highly nutritious, warm or cold.

People with gluten sensitivities, for example, can replace their wheat products with mesquite products, a seed pod made into a powder from the tree in Southwest United States and Mexico. Mesquite is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, protein, and lysine, and has a pleasantly sweet molasses-like flavor with a hint of caramel. It tastes great and makes you feel even better.

There you have it! 100% raw organic vegan, gluten-free, eco-friendly sources for your most primal appetite. You cannot go wrong with superfoods. They have a tendency to not only maintain your health but balance your emotions and your mood and your feelings, it’s incredible! With the power to look great and feel great in your own hands, it makes a lot of sense to give these superfoods a chance. Many local groceries and smoothie bars are now offering these superfoods, fulfilling our needs. Don’t wait until you get sick! The supply is available and can meet the demand. It would be a travesty to accept even a temporary shortage of these superfoods that fuel our world, so go out there and get yourself some Acai Pulp and some Goji Berries.

Organic Superfood

“Superfood” is a term coined to define foods rich in phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are certain organic constituents of plants. Nutritionists agree that these phytonutrients have health-promoting benefits. Fruits and vegetables, along with nuts, certain teas like green tea, grains, and legumes are rich sources of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients consist of carotenoids, phytosterols, isoflavones (including genistein and daidzen), coumarins, indoles, lignans, flavonoids and organosulfurs. Phytonutrients are commonly associated with the color of foods. There is a variety of colors in every day foods that we eat. Such colors like vibrant green, bright juicy red, white, tempting yellow-orange and blue-purple not only add color to our plate, but add a variety of nutrients as well. Because of this dieticians recommend the rainbow diet-a variety of colored foods every day.Evidence that eating a variety of fruits and vegetables protects human health is accumulating from large population studies, human feeding studies, and cell culture studies. As research expands, more conclusive results are awaited. “For now”, the USDA Agriculture Research Center states, “it appears that an effective strategy for reducing risk of cancer and heart disease is to increase consumption of phytonutrient-rich foods including fruits, vegetables, grains and teas.”Foods rich in phytonutrients are:

  • All the brightly colored foods such as tomatoes, squashes, carrots-any food which is yellow and orange, green or red.
  • Fruits which include citrus fruits and berries
  • Flaxseeds
  • Whole grains and legumes
  • Garlic and leeks
  • Green teas
  • Members of the cabbage family known as cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli or romaine lettuce
  • Dark leafy greens such as spinach
  • Soybeans

The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least 5 – 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. On average, Americans consume 3.3 servings of vegetables a day. Dark green vegetables and deep yellow vegetables each represent only 0.2 daily servings. About 48% of Americans consume less than one serving of fruit a day. Fruits and vegetables retain more nutrients when they are organic. The word “organic” signifies that these foods are totally naturally. No pesticides, or artificial fertilizers are used to grow organic foods. There is no genetic modification. Foods claiming to be organic must be free of artificial food additives, and are often processed with fewer artificial methods, materials and conditions. Organic food production is legally regulated.

Organic Superfoods
Organic Superfoods contain a combination of superfoods as natural, organic ingredients in a synergistic ratio. You get a good dose of phytonutrients in one single serving! It is important to read the label carefully to make sure you are buying a product made with organic ingredients as these have the highest nutritive value and are more easily digested by the body. Organic superfoods are not meant to be a replacement for food. But not all of us can consistently eat the required fruit and vegetables we need each day. Superfoods can augment your daily diet to make sure you are getting phytonutrient power for optimum health protection.

Superfoods – Improve Brain Functioning and Mood

David Wolfe on How to Get Started on Superfoods Part 2

Lenette Nakauchi’s – Interview with David Wolfe.

Lenette: I have a question about coffee. Coffee is so popular and so important for so many people to keep them on and alert. What superfoods, and I know cacao is always an option, but what other superfoods can give people the same effect or same reward as coffee?

David Wolfe World Famous NutritionistDavid: Marine phytoplankton is very interesting in that regard because it provides energy without stimulation. It’s not a stimulant. The actual methodology or mechanism of how that works I learned from a very interesting scientist by the name of Dr. George Merkle who I had the pleasure of meeting about eight or nine years ago. He actually invited me over to his house and I sat with him for a number of hours one day and described to me what his scientific discoveries were. His scientific discoveries were so massive that he was basically targeted by the ‘World Medical Mafia’ or whatever you want to call it. They had to get rid of him because what he was bringing to the table was so powerful that it kind of deletes the whole idea of pharmaceuticals. In fact, in a lot of ways, it deletes the whole idea of food. Here’s what he discovered: he discovered that the ancient organisms of the planet, plankton, those organisms produce ATP, or nucleotides. ATP, ADP, all these different types of nucleotides. Now this is actually the energy currency of our cell. Our cell doesn’t run on protein, carbohydrates and fat or burn forms of those things. It actually runs on ATP. So all the food we eat is in the wrong currency. It has to be converted over to ATP, ADP, GTP, GDP, all the nucleotides. Then the nucleotides are packets of energy that our body can use. If we had a food that we could go to that would just be a concentrate of nucleotides, then it would actually completely nourish us, totally energize us, make us alert with a high level of concentration with no stimulation. And that’s exactly what marine phytoplankton is and that’s exactly where Dr. Merkle found that all of those nucleotides could more naturally be concentrated in the environment and could be concentrated even more. You get that, because if you do a dropperful or two droppers full of marine phytoplankton, there’s a tremendous stimulation that’s there, but there’s no crash afterwards because it’s not a stimulant. It’s actually just pure nucleotides.

Lenette: What superfoods can enhance our brain functioning in this book?

David: Goji berries enhance our brain functioning. Cacao, in the right people. Maca. Maca is a very powerful brain food also. It’s actually quite oily. It’s an oily vegetable, a very interesting vegetable in its ability to interface with our neurological functioning. It just goes right into the brain and right into our nervous system. Another one that is right in there is blue-green algae because of the Omega-3, and it has long-chain Omega-3. One of the things about blue-green algae and marine phytoplankton is that they actually contain the same oil, namely DHA, that’s in fish oil. That’s an Omega-3 fatty acid that’s different from what’s in hemp seed or flax seed or chia seed. That’s more of what we need actually. We kind of call them ‘hyperoils’. They’re Omega-3 fatty acids, but they’re longer chain than what’s found in hemp seed, flax seed and chia seed. And that’s appropriate for our brain and eyes.

Lenette: I just feel like, me personally, I’m always looking for more memory, quicker brain functioning, clearer focus and I would assume that a lot of people are looking for that too, if they’re already pretty healthy and energetic.

David: I think you’re right. The number one complaint out there, like in America, is low energy. The number two complaint is actually foggy thinking. Foggy brain, lack of memory. We know that all that is related to the holistic picture of what we’re about. For example there’s a diet and nutrition and detoxification relationship that the more toxic we are, the more cloudy our thinking, the more that we have Candida and critters growing inside of us, foggier thinking. As we clean that stuff out and as we step out of that, then we can kind of dial it in a little bit tighter with superfoods, things like Camu Camu berry, Reishi mushroom, blue-green algae, marine phytoplankton, Maca, Goji berry. If we just are on that high-end fuel and have gotten all the excess out of our body, we’ve detoxified, we’ve gotten the critters out of our body, etc. then we can start to tweak and perturb our brain and memory capacity in a way that…I think we haven’t been there yet. As a population we don’t understand how incredible our brains really are when they’re functioning properly and they’re cleaned out.

Lenette: I have a question about gold to ask you. Gold has been widely used and has been highly valued by civilizations for thousands of years. Even today as the economy struggles, the value of gold steadily rises. What makes gold so unique and special and what do you see in the future for gold?

David: I approach gold from a more alchemical perspective. I grew up mostly with a scientific background with the periodic table of elements and learning that gold is one of many metals on the Earth, I think a little bit devaluing what gold really is. The reason that gold is so interesting, and has been since the beginning of time is because it doesn’t oxidize. When you have gold in a river or sitting on the side of a creek or in your house, it doesn’t oxidize. It never changes color. It’s always pure. It has been understood by the alchemists as being the most pure download of sun or solar energy of any substance that exists in our biosphere. The sun and gold are related to each other. For example, let’s say you’re trying to melt gold and then form it into a tooth, but on that day there’s a solar eclipse. If there’s anything weird going on with the sun, then gold is affected by it. This understanding, more the alchemical understanding of what gold is, is what I got into later, because I realized that the conventional understanding of what gold is doesn’t really add up. It doesn’t explain why there is a problem with crystallizing gold when there is a solar event going on. How could they be related? But they are. And here’s where we’ve come to our understanding of what gold is. Gold is on the same octave, it’s like middle ‘C’ on a keyboard of a piano, and if you go to the next ‘C’ on the right, there you have the sun. If you go to the next ‘C’ on the right, you have the heart. If you go to the next ‘C’ on the right, then you have serotonin. You go to the next ‘C’ on the right and there you have the king on the chessboard. These are all octaves of each other. They’re like metaphors of each other, but they are all related. For example, if there are sunspots going on on the sun, the amount of heart attacks that occur can double on that given day or week. Sunspots on the sun affect deeply what’s going on inside our hearts. So our heart and the sun are connected. Serotonin and the sun and gold are all connected to each other. They’re all in that same octave. Does that make sense?

Lenette: Yes. It’s fascinating.

David: When you take gold, like colloidal gold, you are allowing your body to have access to a frequency that helps you replicate serotonin and what that actually does…like colloidal silver, for example, kills all “parasites”; fungus, yeast, mold, viruses, Candida. Colloidal silver kills all of that. But colloidal gold kind of kills all metaphysical parasites. Another way of saying that is, it increases your stress defense shield.

Lenette: Yeah, I’ve really found that. I’ve been taking that for the past 6 months or so. I feel much happier.

David: Do you find that you’re happier really? Has that been an effect that you’ve noticed? Because that should be an effect.

Lenette: I definitely do. I love my life. I try to do other things, too, to improve my mood; the way I talk or doing a little 10-minute visualization or meditation. There are a lot of other things that I also incorporate. I’m never really sure if it’s the colloidal gold or the combination of everything together. It’s probably that.

David: I’m sure it is. When you get to the point of being into superfoods at the level you’re in, raw foods, and just kind of on the high end, if you take it realistically, you’re in a completely different reality from where everybody else is at. Realistically.

Lenette: It’s just nice to know that I’m doing everything possible. I’m treating myself like a queen drinking gold in the morning.

David Isn’t that great? Ultimately I believe that people who are attracted to these things, to superfoods, to raw foods, to colloidal gold and things of that nature are people who have a high self-esteem about themselves, because they come to a place where they realize, “I’m worth it and I’m now going to give my body the best. I’ve done the other thing and it doesn’t work. Now I’m gonna do it this way.” People are motivated; they’re psyched about it. It’s amazing.

Lenette: I love the affirmation, “I eat the best foods on the planet.” I think I heard that from you. “I eat the best food ever. I drink the best drinks ever,” and I think that’s kind of the culture of the Elements for Life crowd, at least, and a lot of people out there that eat raw foods and superfoods, it’s a great attitude they have.

David: Totally. Thomas Jefferson said this: “One who has a bad attitude cannot be helped no matter what and the brakes will always go against them. And one who has a positive attitude will be carried by the wind.” And it’s like “Whoa, okay.” Just attitude. It all really comes down to attitude, because attitude is the eternal spring from which all abundance arises. So if somebody has a poor attitude, there is no way they can create abundance [robed elements] into their life, because it’s like they’re constantly pouring sewage water into their reality. If somebody has a positive mental attitude and is actually in a state of abundance and is taking on their life’s challenges with a positive attitude, then they are constantly pouring spring water onto their life’s reality. It is really a radical difference. It eventually is what I believe the future of humanity is going to come down to. What is our attitude about this, that and the other thing? It’s really all about that.

Introducing Superfoods to You and Your Family

What are Superfoods?

Raw Food Healthy Food - CarrotsIt is commonly known that our bodies require food for essential nutrients and energy, but some foods are better than others, and some are even better than that. These foods at the top of the list are known as superfoods, which are rich in vitamins and have been proven to improve your health and reduce your risk for many diseases.

What are the benefits of superfoods?

Superfoods are especially good for you because they’re rich in vitamins, minerals, and extra compounds that are good for your health and easy to process. Things such as omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and many things that are hard to pronounce. Superfoods have been involved in scientific studies to back up the health claims made for them.

How do I get these foods into my diet?

To begin using superfoods in your diet, start slowly. Change your snack of potato chips or candy to a cup of low fat flavored yogurt, and trade out lunch for a baked chicken sandwich with light mayo, a side salad, and some string cheese. Once you feel comfortable with this change, you can incorporate more super foods.

Getting your family and friends involved will provide a support system and make things even easier. It is a very simple change to make, and the benefits you’ll reap are priceless, but it does require that you do it and keep up with it. Don’t change your habits just long enough to loose a few pounds. I promise you’ll be much happier if you stick with it.

What about getting my kids to eat healthy?

The easiest way to get a child to eat healthy is to start young. Every parent has to go through the process of finding out what their kids love, what they will tolerate, and what will end up on the wall. This happens whether you choose to feed your child healthy or unhealthy food. The problem arises when you decide to make a change for the better and your child, who is used to (and loves) their current unhealthy eating habits, resists with full force.

But changing the eating habits of your whole family doesn’t have to end in tears with every meal. Just like anyone, kids need to be introduced to healthy eating slowly. This can be a positive change that you go through together, rather than against each other. There are just a few basic rules.

Pick your Battles

If your child loves carrots but feeds broccoli to the dog when you’re not looking, don’t fuss. Don’t cause a fight that will push them further and further into rebellion. Don’t give them broccoli for dinner. Instead mix a small amount in a homemade salad dressing, or a smoothie. Someday, their tastes may change and they decide to they love broccoli. It happens all the time.

Include your child in the preparation.

Many children love to assist in the kitchen. They feel important and it creates a great bonding opportunity. So let them help by washing or tearing vegetables, help them set the table, or even ask them to help you choose the food to make (within boundaries.) If your child is to the point they hate helping, ask them very nicely to do small things for you and give them lots of praise on what a great job they did without patronizing them. It helps build their willingness to do it again.

Make it fun

One way to encourage kids both to help in the kitchen AND to eat the food, is to make the preparation fun. Make the food into fun shapes or play kids music while you prepare. You could make the preparation into a game, make sound effects and be as silly as you want. You’ll be surprised to discover that you want to be in the kitchen more and more, too.

As with all diet changes, getting your child to eat healthy will take a little bit of work, some understanding, a healthy dose of creativity, and a whole lot of patience. It will also take compromises here and there. The end result is well worth the battle, though. So keep it up and one day your child will thank you.

6 Superfoods to Add to Your Daily Diet

A List of six beneficial Superfoods

Blueberries are Antioxidant Rch SuperfoodsFresh organic foods have health benefits but Superfoods are particularly healthy because the nutritive content is greater, more complex and extraordinary in some way. Nature has given us an incredible bounty but so many people have little regard for these remarkable foods. Superfoods are very easy to add to your diet and you’ll be doing your health a huge favor by making an effort to eat more healthy foods. Not only your body will benefit from superfoods but also your mind.

  • Superfoods

    A good mixture of supergreens includes chlorella, spirulina, wheat grass, wheat sprouts and other green concentrates. Besides containing vitamins and minerals in their natural food state, These greens are also packed with antioxidants, enzymes and co-enzymes, complete balanced protein with all the essential amino acids, trace elements and chlorophyll. In addition they help the body maintain a more alkaline state. The benefits of supergreens as a superfoods are numerous. They help to cleanse the blood of toxins we ingest from daily living and even help to detox heavy metals. They support the liver-cleansing function and play a role in controlling blood sugar levels.

  • Goji Berries

    Goji berries are a recent superfood discovery. They are round and red, rather sweet tasting. Grown in China, Tibet and Mongolia, goji berries were traditionally used to boost energy and stimulate Qi (energy flow). There are a range of health benefit claims including anti-ageing and this has made them very popular. The berries do seem to enhance the immune system, improve eye health, protect the liver, boost sperm production and open up the kidney channels. They contain complex phyto-nutrients and bioflavonoids including betaine (brain and liver support), physalin, beta-sitoserol (prostate health), cyperone (benefits heart and blood pressure), solavetivone (anti-fungal, anti-bacterial properties) and others chemicals.

  • Oats

    Oats have a high fibre content, half soluble and half insoluble. The soluble fibre portion contains a component called beta-glucans which has some blood cholesterol-lowering effects. The whole-oat variety, either rolled oats or grains, is a very good source of tocotrienols (vitamin E family). Try adding oats to your fruit at breakfast because it slows down the blood sugar level spike. Dietary fibre has shown to lower the incidence of cancer, possibly because it contains lignan. The insoluble fibre is crucial for promoting bowel action and thereby relieving constipation problems. Oats also contain essential fatty acids, a good profile of amino acids and a range of vitamins and minerals including zinc, selenium, iron, magnesium and manganese.

  • Garlic

    Garlic is another fantastic superfood to use on a daily basis if possible. You can use it fresh in your food or in capsule form. Garlic’s chief medicinal benefits are its blood pressure-lowering, lipid-reducing and atherosclerotic prevention properties. Garlic has also been shown to reduce the coaguability of blood by reducing platelet aggregation. It is also well-known as a natural anti-biotic. See here for more details on the health benefits of garlic.

  • Blueberries

    Blueberries are real little health powerhouses full of antioxidants and other health-promoting substances which support eye, heart and urinary tract health in particular. Blueberries have anti-ageing properties; they decrease free radicals that can damage organs and have important health effects on the brain. These positive effects may be due to its high anthocyanin and proanthocyanidin content. Add them to your oats for breakfast or put them in a smoothie.

  • Cruciferous Vegetables

    These include broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, bok choy and cauliflower. If you can eat three or more servings of these vegetables per week studies indicate that you could reduce prostate cancer risk almost by half, and in women the risk of breast cancer is significantly reduced. Other cancers may be prevented too. Cruciferous vegetables also contain compounds that help the liver to detox.

There are other superfoods such as cold-water fish with its high omega-3 fatty acid content; most healthy seeds such as pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds; flax seeds with their particular combination of fatty acids. Plainly put, superfoods are by far the best health foods to eat.

Organic Green Superfoods

Three Fantastic Superfoods and What They Offer Your Body

Superfoods are being increasingly touted by nutritionists as being among the healthiest food sources available. There term “superfood” has a fairly broad definition depending upon whom you talk to or what you read. In essence, however, it generally refers to any food with a high concentration of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are plant-derived compounds that are acclaimed for their health-promoting benefits by health food companies and scientific researchers alike.

Commonly-recognized superfoods include berries, leafy greens, and sprouts. Other well-known and often-written-about ones include bee pollen, aloe vera, raw cacao (chocolate), goji berries, and flax seeds, to mention a few. All of these foods are available at most grocery and natural food stores.

Notably, some of the superfoods that have garnered the most attention over the past few decades are three types of organic green superfoods: spirulina, blue-green algae, and chlorella (all of which are types of algae!). Each of these foods is extremely high in protein and other nutrients.

Here are some details about what each of these types of algae can offer in terms of nutrition and health benefits:

1. Spirulina: The green algae spirulina contains an unusually high amount of protein – between 55% and 77% by dry weight, depending upon where it was grown and harvested. In fact, spirulina contains more protein per gram than any other food in existence. Furthermore, spirulina contains a complete form of protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids. It is generally considered to offer protein that is superior to typical plant proteins, like that of legumes.

Spirulina is also one of the richest sources of beta-carotene known to science. Beta carotene is an organic compound that is a precursor to Vitamin A, an essential human nutrient important for vision and bone health. Finally it is the highest source of the B vitamin complex, B12 included!

2. Blue-Green Algae: The Blue-green algae – also known as cyanobacteria – is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, containing glycoproteins, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Typically, blue-green algae are harvested in natural lakes such as Upper Klamath Lake in south-central Oregon.

Blue-green algae also contain one of the most concentrated forms of phenylethylamine, which is an important component of a certain neurotransmitter and contributes toward balancing the neurological system and brain.

3. Chlorella: The detox wonder Chlorella is a single-cell algae that can contain up to 50% protein, as well as amino acids and vitamins. It is the richest source of chlorophyll of any food that names chlorella as the ultimate “detox” food. Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in most plants and algae. It is known to have a number of health benefits, including growth and repair of tissues, neutralization of pollutants in the body, assisting the blood in carrying oxygen to cells and tissues, and neutralizing free radicals that do damage to healthy cells. Overall, chlorophyll (and the chlorella superfood that carries it) is an excellent detoxifier.

The three green, algae-based superfoods spirulina, blue-green algae, and chlorella represent a robust and powerful source of nutrients for the body. Together, they offer an abundance of protein for healthy muscles, phenylethylamine for a balanced brain, beta-carotene for eye and bone health, and chlorophyll for tissue repair and overall detoxification. When looking for a power-punch green food combination for your health, these algae-based products are among your most promising options.

What Are Superfoods?

We’re all searching for the ultimate eating plan. And the latest one promising high-quality health, shining eyes and glowing skin is the Superfoods diet. It works on the premise that there are 14 super foods that can help you live a longer and healthier life, slow the ageing process and help prevent cancer and diabetes. Great – where do we sign up?

It all started when a book called Superfoods: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life (Random House) was published in the US, fast becoming the latest grazing craze. And, unlike many faddish eating plans, the Superfoods diet is based on proven scientific evidence – even though it does mean dramatically changing the contents of your shopping basket.

Superfoods are a group of wholesome foods that pack a nutritious punch. In addition, they contain an exceptionally high nutrient content when compared to the amount of calories per serving. Wild Oats staff has researched the superfoods most recommended by dietary experts and has highlighted the following food groups in its stores: berries, citrus, cruciferous vegetables, eggs, green foods, green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts, oats, olives and olive oil, fish rich in Omega-3fatty acids, orange vegetables, sea vegetables, seeds, soy, tea, tomatoes, turkey, whole grains and yogurt and kefir.

Medical professionals say that superfoods may help people feel more energetic, provide protection against disease, and promote a healthy lifestyle now and for the future. The antioxidants found in these products are a class of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that may help eliminate chemically active oxygen molecules thought to contribute to aging and chronic ailments such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

So, what can you eat? The Superfoods diet dictates that you need to eat the following every day – at least one or two cups of blueberries, half-a-cup each of broccoli and pumpkin, five to seven servings of oats, one of tomatoes, one orange, at least half an ounce of soy, one cup of steamed spinach or two cups of raw, one cup of tea and two cups of yoghurt. Every week, followers must also have four servings of beans, two to four of wild salmon, three or four of turkey and five ounces of walnuts.

So is it too good to be true? Well, not necessarily. Meredith Kennedy, a dietitian for Nutrition Australia says that all of the components of the Superfoods diet are nutrient-dense foods which are fantastically good for you – just don’t be put off by the rigidity of the plan. “We’d recommend all of these foods as healthy choices,” she says.

But don’t fret if you can’t stand broccoli, or if oranges turn you off. “You can substitute cabbage, bok choy, cauliflower or cabbage for broccoli,” says Kennedy. “And grapefruit, limes or lemons will give you similar nutrients to oranges.” The most important part to remember is to consume a wide variety of fruit and vegetables in your diet if you want to make sure you really are eating a super diet.
