Slim n’ Sexy Nutrition Tip #4

Nutrition Tip #4

Eat More Superfoods!

Superfoods are packed with healthy qualities, such as containing mega doses of anti-oxidants, essential fatty acids, detoxifying abilities, and so on.

Here’s a list of superfoods I eat often:

– Flax oil and flax seed: high in Omega 3’s
– Chlorella and Spirulina: densely packed with nutrition
– Seaweeds: excellent sources of minerals. I put kelp in my smoothies
– Sprouts: enzyme and protein rich. Inexpensive to grow yourself!
– Berries: high in antioxidants. I blend them in my protein smoothies
– Green Leafy Veggies: kale, lettuce, spinach and the like. So healthy!
– Alfalfa: sprouted or dried powder, an excellent nutrient rich food.
– Olive leaf powder: fights infections. I get mine from Suede Hills
– Stevia: natural sweetener that is actually good for you.
Get the green stuff from Suede Hills, not the white stuff as it’s over processed.
– Coconut Oil: the one saturated fat that is good for you
– Amaranth and Quinoa: protein and nutrient rich seeds used like grain
– Garlic: excellent immune boosting qualities
– Lemon: helps to alkalize your body, cleansing and high in Vit. C
– Hemp: I eat the hearts, but you can get oil too. One of the healthiest foods!

Here’s an example of a Green Smoothie where I’ve combined lots of superfoods into one meal:

1 cup pure water (warmed so the berries aren’t too cold)
1 cup frozen berries
4 big leaves of Romaine lettuce (or 3 handfuls of spinach)
1 banana
1 scoop Sun Warrior protein blend
1/2 tsp kelp powder
1 scoop supergreens product (I use “Perfect Food” by Garden of Life)
1 tbsp alfalfa powder
1 tsp olive leaf powder
1/2 tsp stevia

Blend and enjoy!

You don’t have to have all the ingredients I mentioned here, but it’s a potent drink if you do!

Another word of advice: if you are just making a switch to eating healthy, ease into it. If your body has quite a bit of cleansing to do, this smoothie might be TOO cleansing at once. You don’t need to eat all the superfoods at the same time. Just start integrating them into your diet, and increase the amount of healthy, whole foods while decreasing processed foods.
