Focusing on "Super-Foods" - how to incorporate things? - Page 2

post #21 of 22
I went raw for a few years so i learned about all kinds of superfoods:

-hemp seeds or oil: they are very nutritious and well-balanced, it contains the perfect 3:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids, which is important for long-term health. It also contains other polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, its 25% high-quality protein that has amino acid ratios similar to meat and eggs (so its excellent for vegans). It has been known to cure cancer or help greatly with cancer treatment. I could go on and on.

-raw cacao: very tasty, can be used in smoothies, recipes calling for chocolate, as an ice crean topping, you name it and its also very, very healthy: http://www.builtlean.com/2012/04/12/raw-chocolate/

-acai: yummy berry, the juice is perfect for smoothies--http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/benefits-of-acai/


-wheatgrass: http://www.energiseforlife.com/wordpress/2009/05/22/wheatgrass-health-benefits/

I got sick of repeating myself for each one, saying they are tasty. Just know that i have tried each one and i highly recommend them both for taste and health benefits, as do many people who are into the raw food lifestyle.

I love this thread.  Aside from all the great stuff, I just want to add mine: proteins from India.

 

The yummiest salad dressing is plain whipped yoghurt with minced onions and apples.  Whip the yoghurt with a little water or milk and a very small amount of honey or sugar until it's nice and light, then add in your minced veggies.  Yellow onions are good.  My favorite yoghurt is Stoneyfield and my son eats it plain.

 

Learn to use a pressure cooker; this saves oodles and oodles of time and enables you to cook with dried beans and lentils, which are much much more flavorful.  I regularly make kidney beans, chick peas, chana dal, moong dal, masoor dal, Etc, all very very nutritious and have protein.

 

 

The best pressure cookers are hawkins brand.
