List of SUPERFOODS

"Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients - nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves. We all may be adding more salads and vegetables to our diets, but concern over the quality of foods grown on mineral depleted soils makes Superfoods an intelligent choice." (from Food Matters)

The Shocking Truth about Your Health

Recommended by Meghan Telpner, I watched this video of a TED talk given by Dr. Lissa Rankin . Our health is NOT just based on nutrition and exercise... Worth watching, check it out!




Good Health ...and all the money invested on us not having it!!

This fact hit home for me today. After watching the documentary "Hungry for Change", it dawned on me that the reason our North American society is so reluctant to help us lead a healthier lifestyle is that there is SO much profit to be made from the medical industry and the producers of processed food which would be greatly minimized if we all ate more whole food diets!

"What would happen if everybody ate lots and lots of fresh organic food that was minimally processed?

I think we would have an epidemic of health. I think the stock market would tremble. The drug industry is a half trillion dollar a year, worldwide conglomerate; almost three hundred billion dollars just in North America. This is really really big business. What would happen if everybody were well?

There’s no money in health. You see, good health makes a lot of sense, but it doesn’t make a lot of dollars.”
(Dr. Andrew Saul in Food Matters)

Aloe Vera

Been wanting to buy some aloe vera from the health food store but eager to make my own. Found a great big leaf at my local fruit and vegetable store and ready to add it to my smoothies!




Hungry for Change

Just watched this documentary! Great information and overall view of how our eating habits have got out of control and the simple solution for healthier lives!

"In a collection of interviews with leading Nutritionists, Naturopaths, Scientists, M.D.'s and Medical Journalists you will discover scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally.

"With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what's wrong with our malnourished bodies, it's no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide 'sickness industry' and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally."
