Healty Foods and Superfoods – How Good Are They Really?

How Important are Healthy Foods?

Superfoods and Healthy Foods?Today these questions are easy to answer for me: Very good and very important! The few healthy foods we are still able to gather these days, play a major role for our overall health. And I'm not talking about superfoods only here; I'm talking about organic vegetables, leafy greens that haven't been sprayed with all kinds of toxins and have been feed with artificial fertilizers that consist only of the very basic nutrients. Organic carrots; when have You seen the last one? Organic eggs, if you're not a vegan, are very healthy food. The y consist out of almost pure protein! Organic spinach is very high on antioxidants and not only Popeye should be eating it. Spinach has also a lot of Lutein which can prevent blindness and muscular degeneration.The point is that no matter what you want to eat, you should try to get it organic! Even if you're still eating meat after all the bad news about what's in it; you can get organically grown meat and poultry without antibiotics for a slightly higher price.

Despite the little price difference and the bit more running around to find the right foods, you'll feel so much better after eating organic foods for a few month, you wouldn't believe it! Try it out and you will thank me forever! I'm doing this now since six month only, and I've seen changes happening on my body that are just sheer miracles. Besides that my skin cancer has vanished, and I hope forever, I have lost almost all my age warts and one big black mole in my face. the simply started to vanish over time. But this not all by a long shot!  My eyesight has gotten much better even though I'm still working on the computer for most of the day. It might be that one liter fresh carrot juice every day plays a big role in that. Overall; I'm feeling as good as when I was eighteen!

Eat lots of Healthy Foods and Superfoods

I'm eating the ideal dosage of about 30 gram of Goji berries every day, some goose berries in between and if I get hungry in the afternoon, I make a shake consisting of fresh coconut, a handful raw cacao nobs and a banana, that's pure energy! In the evening I'm on for a fresh salad, full of organic vegetables, holy basil, ginger, parsley and oregano. Other things that are regularly in my salads are cumin, thyme, red onions, cashew nuts, turmeric, fresh dill and whatever I can get fresh in the organic shop. In the end of the month I'm not more broke than when I was shopping in the supermarket without turning my brain on. Really, it doesn't make a difference at all! In the beginning that came to me a s a surprise but after a while I just found out that with the shift of priorities my financial situation hadn't changed much after six month, but my health had changed a lot!

So how important are healthy foods and superfoods? For me they have made all the difference they could make. After life had shown me the yellow card at the beginning of the year for being such a careless fool with my body, I've learned that the right nutrition might cost you a bit more money and quite a bit more time for food hunting and preparation, but the result is always worth the while. I'm far more active today than I was during the past five years and I'm also far more productive and far more successful with what I'm doing. I can truly recommend superfoods and organic foods to anybody who is willing to change their lifestyle. Once you find out for yourself what this does to your body and to your mind, you will never regret it!

The Secrets Of Nutrition and Healthy Foods

About Nutrition and why you need to Eat Healthy Foods

Artichokes Pistachios Quinoa Yummie! Superfoods DinnerMore and more people understand that diseases and even depression can be prevented and healed with natural ways rather than chemicals. During the past century we developed a quick fix option for most of our common diseases. We've been spending billions on pharmaceutical medicines, for the purpose of suppressing the symptoms but not healing the root cause of the problems!

Lately many of us are also realizing that we have been fooled all along! And that there are many natural alternatives to prevent illness and disease rather than treat it. And we find that mother nature has given us the most wonderful medicine already; natural foods, packed with antioxidants and all kinds of nutrients, all designed to nourish our bodies, to keep us healthy and to give us strenght to work at an optimum level; and all that is necessary for evolution to work. Natural grown, whole grain and organic foods and their nutritional elements are also used as medicine.

You can discover the healing secrets of food all by yourself, take the responsibility of your own health into your own hands. Doctors give you medicine and cut things out to solve the problem, a naturopathic Nutritionists follow another principle. They treat patients as one whole element of body, mind and soul. If you look at it that way you get a much broader view of deficiencies that may be causing the illness. Treatments are specific to each individual, making sure you take a balanced combination of nutrients and minerals. Such treatments are always tailored specifically to your individual needs, to get your body back to full strength and make or keep you healthy.

Why are Whole Foods so Important.

Some whole foods that contain a high range of important nutrients are often called superfoods e.g wheatgrass, sprouts, spirulina, and more.All whole foods are a mixture of vital nutrients and other minerals, so while a food may be rich in one particular nutrients it may also contain other valuable nutrients and health-giving factors in lesser doses. Finding healthy foods that even taste good and give you the best nutrition are a big part of the fun of eating well, no matter if you live alone, or with your family.

What makes a Healthy Diet?

The answer can be given in one single sentence:

Nutrition determines how we look, how we feel, how we work, if we will be nervous, tired, pessimistic, joyful, comfortable and happily active, whether we will age prematurely or enjoy our lives to the full.

Try these steps to improve the nutritional content of your food:

Eat healthy organic food whenever possible. Try to find superfoods and food supplements in your neighborhood. Inform yourself; read articles about healthy foods. Super Foods may be a bit more expensive, but you can be sure that the food you are eating has not been processed and has been grown without the use of fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, and other poisonous chemicals.

Here are some Food Processing Rules to Follow

  • Include as many superfoods in your diet as you can.
  • Eat lots whole grains.
  • Also eat the skin of vegetables and fruits.
  • Don't cut, juice, wash, or soak fruits and vegetables until you are ready to use them.
  • Drink lots of fresh fruit and vegetable juice.
  • Add plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to every meal you eat.
  • Eat raw food whenever possible. If you're cooking your food, use as little water as possible.

Unfortunately, some of the best superfoods might not be available in your neighborhood, but that isn't so bad anymore as it was only a few years ago, If I would have even known about Acai berries for example, ten years ago, I still wouldn't have had the means to go to Brazil to get some. Today it's far easier, you just visit our health shop and you order all the superfoods you ever wanted and they are at your doorstep 2 days later! That's what I call progress.  Or you go to the next online bookstore and order a book full of superfood recipes and you start cooking healthy foods with the everyday superfoods what you can get in your neighborhood.

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.
