1. Try one new superfood every month
If can afford it, have fun experimenting with different superfoods every month or every few months. You don’t necessarily need to buy all of the different superfoods at one time. Try one, for a few months and see how it makes you feel. If you are on a budget the least expensive super foods are: growing your own wheatgrass and sprouts. You can also purchase dried herbs such as nettles, horsetail, oatstraw, and alfafa which are a great source of minerals including silica and iron. You can make them into a tea or blend them in with your smoothies.
2. Super food it by adding superfoods to all your meals!
Did you know you can add practically any superfood to any meal for extra nutrition? For example you can make a spirulina and olive oil salad dressing, put bee pollen and goji berries into your morning cereal, add green powder and maca root in your smoothies…(etc.) My little secret is that spirulina over air popped popcorn tastes amazing!
3. Grind seeds
Did you know you can easily grind seeds such as flax, chia, and sesame seeds in a spice grinder or a powerful blender? Then you can keep the seed powders in a sealed container in your fridge and sprinkle them on top of your salads and put them in smoothies. Not only will you add extra fiber to your meals, but you will also get your essential omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids as well.
If you want to use them like a seasoning you can add some salt, herbs, or spices. My favorite is sesame seeds, salt, and cayenne pepper.
4. Use flaked seaweed
Seaweed is an amazing source of trace minerals including iodine which is important for healthy thyroid function. Dulse flakes or kelp granules are very easy to find online or in the spice or bulk herb section of your natural foods grocery. You can sprinkle flaked seaweed on almost any food as a healthy salt substitute.
5. Only use extra virgin cold pressed oils
One of the best things you could do for your health is to only use extra virgin cold pressed oils such as cold pressed extra virgin olive oil,coconut oil, flax seed oil, and hemp seed oil. Not only are they healthier than refined oils, but they taste amazing! For best results: don’t cook with them but rather drizzle them on top of your favorite foods.
