The Ultimate Superfoods Shopping List – Saturday Strategy
POSTED ON June 22, 2017 BY Drew Canole
Do you want to be superhuman?
Do you want to live a life full of ENERGY and VITALITY?
Do you want to live FREE of chronic illness and disease?
The answers to these questions are obvious. Of course you do! Why else would you be reading this article about superfoods? You already know that your diet holds the key to your health, wellness and longevity and it’s apparent that you are actively seeking education to give yourself the best chance possible. Good for you!
Today, I want to talk to you about some of the incredible foods I fill my grocery cart and my body with every single week. These foods line the perimeter of any good grocery store and are straight from Mother Nature herself!
Unless I’m in a produce-specific store, you will rarely find me wandering the inner aisles. Occasionally I will make an intentional trip down an aisle to grab some coconut milk, coconut oil, or a spice, but other than that… the perimeter is my world! And if you are truly looking to live a life of health and wellness, then this should be true for you too.
So without further ado, let’s dive into a world of powerful, life-changing, superpower enhancing whole foods!
Berries And Fruits
If you were to sit a young child down at a table full of different foods, which foods would they grab first? Most likely they would pick the high energy, colorful foods like fruits and berries. In his book, The Detox Miracle Sourcebook,Robert Morse, N.D. says “The ancient Greeks… ate nothing but fruit and each generation reached the age of 200 years.”
Berries have incredible antioxidant and cell-protecting nutrients called phytochemicals. These neutralize free radicals in the body that may otherwise cause disease. They also help protect you against EMFs and radiation. The flavonoids in berries help us with mental clarity, memory and learning.
Fill your grocery cart with berries and fruits like the following:
Our brand new product, Organifi Red Juice, is jam packed with antioxidant rich berries like blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, acai berry and more! Be sure to claim yours today, this stuff is selling like hot cakes!
Nuts And Seeds
Nuts and seeds have been an important energy source throughout history. They are extremely nutrient-dense and their fat content comes mostly from heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Do you want to lower your risk of heart disease and cancer? Curb cravings and addictions? Boost your energy? Add tasty and healthy ingredients to your recipes? It’s time to “go nuts!”(and seeds).
A large portion of the western population eats mainly traditional wheat, bleached wheat, corn and occasionally rice. There is a whole world of grains or grain-like plants that provide even better nutrients, better taste and are often gluten-free. Super grains are packed with fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. You don’t need to be gluten sensitive to enjoy a wide variety of grains from around the world!
Check out some of these nourishing grains next time you’re at the store:
Nothing ages a person more quickly than stress. Did you know that our brain cells actually die when exposed to high amounts of cortisol (the stress hormone)? In our modern, high-paced society, stress has become a way of living rather than an occasional reaction to threats.
Many of the following herbs are also called adaptogens. Adaptogens are plants that have the ability to help your body cope with stress. The influence this has on your health is enormous, as stress is a root cause of numerous illnesses. Herbs have also been used medicinally for thousands of years and are a staple of holistic medicine.
I would strongly suggest you learn how to incorporate these herbs into your meals:
We love herbs! Because it can be hard to get these unique foods into your diet, we added several of them into our superfood powder blends Organifi Green Juice and Organifi Red Juice. Fill your body with these remedying foods, try Organifi today!
Dr. Mercola says that mushrooms contain some of the most potent natural medicines on the planet. Mushrooms are naturally low in sodium, fat, cholesterol and calories and have high amounts of antioxidants and fiber. They contain antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant and antitumor properties. Many mushrooms have been shown to stop or even destroy cancer cells in their tracks.
Here are half a dozen super mushrooms to expand your mushroom world! Since they absorb everything around them, good or bad, they are important to eat organic whenever possible.
Here are several varieties of mushrooms to add to your grocery cart:
Don’t like mushrooms? No problem! You can still receive the enormous benefits of mushrooms without having to taste or learn how to cook them! We’ve added two of the most powerful mushrooms on the planet to our Organifi Red Juice: Reishi and Cordyceps. To learn more, visit this page.
Spices are nature’s natural seasoning and come with numerous health benefits. Historically, how many spices you owned was a sign of wealth and spices were highly valued as medicine. Back in the day they didn’t have over the counter drugs for coughs and colds and infections; they had turmeric, cayenne and cloves.
Spices have the potential to help with circulation, detoxing, inflammation, heart health, balancing blood sugar and can even act as powerful antioxidants that protect your body from chronic illness and cancer.
Instead of flavoring your food with premade sauces and spice packs, start to make your own blends using the following:
Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory spices on the planet. It has over 9,000 studies documenting its medicinal properties and benefits. To get the full effects it is important to take a higher dose than can be achieved by eating curry or other turmeric spiced dishes. Try our very own Organifi Daily Turmeric, an organic turmeric supplement today!
Sea Veggies and Algaes
Your neighbors might cringe when you tell them you’ve picked up an algae-eating habit. But don’t worry! When you experience the cleansing, anti-aging, hormone-balancing and remedying benefits of these ocean foods, it won’t matter to you what the neighbors say! In fact, they will probably be asking you for advice before long.
Ocean foods are easy to use and most often you can throw them into recipes that mask the flavors you might not enjoy. These are some of the most powerful foods in heavy-metal cleansing, so don’t let their slimy reputation keep them off your plate!
Here are some sea veggies we have found to be the most valuable:
Can’t stand the thought of swallowing anything plant-like that came out of the ocean? We’ve got your back. Organifi Green Juice contains several of these life-changing sea foods and tastes like fresh mint. You won’t even know you’re drinking spirulina and chlorella! Try yours today.
Does the thought of bending down and chomping on a mouthful of grass seem a little strange to you? Most grass is actually quite safe to eat and contains all the vitamins, enzymes, minerals and amino acids one needs to survive! Some of the most powerful animals on the planet live off a diet of mainly grass.
Although our digestive systems aren’t quite as tough as an elephants or a cow’s, through juicing and blending grasses we can access a plethora of benefits. Read on to find some of the best grasses for your body!
Start juicing the following:
Not all salts are equal. Most people think of salt as simply a flavor enhancer and a possible culprit to high blood pressure. While there may be some truth to this, real salt also hosts a number of worthwhile health benefits. It is one of the main elements from which your body is built.
John F. Kennedy said, “All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.”
Swap out the bleached white salts in your cabinet for:
Bees have been a consistent part of human life for thousands of years. There are around 16,000 species of bee, only seven of which are responsible for creating honey. Mentions of honey bees are found in many religious works such as The Talmud, The Bible, The Torah, The Koran, the Scrolls of Orient, the writings of ancient Greece and Rome and The Book of Mormon. Aboriginal tribes feast on bees and place large value on their pollen and honey. An estimated 40% of the world’s food supply depends on pollination by honey bees.
The western world realized the benefits of bee products when investigating Russian Beekeepers who regularly lived past 100 years of age. These beekeepers ate raw honey, rich in bee pollen every day.
Almost all cultures include fermented foods in their diet. Fermented foods provide probiotics (beneficial bacteria), vitamins and enzymes that help keep your digestive system healthy and free of illness and disease. Overuse of antibiotics and antibacterials and a lack of raw food in the diet literally strips our digestive system of these vital microorganisms and nutrients. Eating fermented food helps to replenish the good bacteria.
Animal studies have also shown that consuming fermented food actually kills several types of cancerous tumors. For the sake of your gut, make fermented foods a staple in your diet!
You can find the following in most grocery stores or even cultivate them yourself:
