Top Superfoods Everyone Needs In Their Diet

Written by: Lindsay Sibson

I don’t always eat healthy while traveling…

But when I DO – it typically involves a sh*t ton of chia seeds (and turmeric, of course).

Over the past three years of trekking around the globe and living out of a tiny backpack, I have been MASSIVELY challenged in the “keeping it healthy” department.

Pizza and gelato in Italy. Street food in Thailand. Hawker stalls in Singapore… annnnnnnnnd I’m salivating already. I’m sure you get my point – so let’s move on.

Here is what I learned about how to keep it simple and healthy when your are busy, on-the-go, or out-of-town:

  1. Chia seeds are magical little balls of energy and amazingness. USE LIBERALLY.
  2. Turmeric is the health boosting fairy dust of the food kingdom. SPRINKLE IT EVERYWHERE. 

Let’s take a deeper look at the health benefits of these 2 superfoods and how YOU can start incorporating them into your daily health routine TODAY:

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
