Snacks Containing The Best Foods for Health

We know how essential having a tasty snack available can be, especially when you are having a long day or there is a long wait before your next available meal. This topic is a compilation of our favorite snack which includes the best superfoods nature has to offer. You will find that this list contains snacks which are easy to prepare and convenient to carry with you. We will explain how to make each of the snacks below as needed. We are all about organic produce in our nutrition recommendations, so be sure to check the label for organic, so you receive high-quality ingredients! Get ready to indulge with amazing, nutritious foods!

Superfood Trail Mix

When you visit Wellness Origin, you will most likely find a majority of our Spa Team with little bags of raw nuts and or raw organic cranberries next to them. We love to make trail mixes using raw organic ingredients! A great combination includes raw organic pecans, cranberries, mulberries, pumpkin seeds, and raw cacao nibs. Simply buy the ingredients and mix them in a bag, then bring it with you whenever you go someplace! This is an excellent snack before lunch or as an afternoon pick me up. It can also be used as a highly nutritious dessert with only healthy sugars.

Carrots & Celery with Nut Butter

Carrots and celery are two of the best foods for health because they not serve as a rich source of nutrition, but also both are high in fiber content, so they can assist in keeping a healthy digestive tract. You can use a raw, organic, sprouted nut butter such as Pumpkin Seed Butter, Brazil Nut Butter, Almond Butter or Macadamia Nut Butter for a dip. Also, maple syrup is an excellent addition to the nut butter for added taste, depending on your preference. You can chop carrots and celery into smaller sticks in the morning, and bring a small container of nut butter or nut butter/maple syrup mix with you when you are out and about!

Apples or Oranges: The Best Superfoods

I love to carry a simple, easy to package and convenient to eat a piece of fruit with me wherever I go. I find that both apples and oranges are great to-go foods. They are easy to carry in my bag, and I can have one pretty much anywhere. Sometimes we forget the simplest foods are among the best superfoods available, they can make the best snacks, and they are so easy to come across!

Veggie Sticks & Dip

What are your three favorite vegetables? You can alternate your favorites with a dip of your choice for a snack. Dips we enjoy as a Wellness Origin Spa Team include vegan cheese spreads (made from organic nuts), organic hummus, and combinations of your favorite salad dressings made with cold pressed organic olive oil.

Raw Chocolate

Raw cacao (chocolate in its natural, unheated, and unprocessed state) is a Wellness Origin favorite for its energy and mood enhancing nutrition and delicious taste. Bringing a bar of raw organic chocolate with you to nibble on during your day is an excellent nutritious source of antioxidants and healthy fats.

Juices and Smoothies

Both of these tasty beverages carry amazing nutritious benefits and can be enjoyed as a snack during your day. Put together your list of superfoods you enjoy most and alternate them in your juices and smoothies. If it is difficult for you to blend your favorite fruits and greens in the morning, try stopping by your nearest organic grocery’s juice bar for an organic, raw drink to go!

All About Organic: Learn the Basics

Live superfoods Wellness Origin

What does organic mean?

Organic produce is cultivated on land which is free from the use of synthetic chemicals and toxins. Fruits, vegetables, and other goods which have the seal of organic on them have been grown in soils which are more supportive of human health. The land has to have had no prohibited substances used on it for the previous three years to classify as organic. Let this article teach you all about organic foods and answer your questions!

All About Organic: Who eats organic?

You will find that many people who eat organic food have a health-conscious lifestyle. Professionals and people with high performance in their work often choose organic food because they know the way they fuel themselves is going to affect their performance on a daily basis. People who are very invested in developing healthy habits overall also choose to eat organic live superfoods because they are looking for the top quality foods for their everyday meals.

What is the difference between organic and raw foods?

The health market today has many different labels for types of foods, and it can be difficult navigating the waters if you are not used to different terminology. Raw foods are foods which are not cooked – they are never heated above 120 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve their natural structure and nutrition. Raw foods are great because they are easy to digest, keep you lean and give you instant energy and nutrients. As mentioned, Organic is the labeling used for foods grown in farms without synthetic chemicals and unwanted toxicity. An organic apple in its natural state is raw food. If you sautéed organic cauliflower and zucchini on the stove, these would be cooked organic foods.

What are the benefits of fresh, organic produce?

At Wellness Origin, we always suggest eating the highest quality foods which you can find daily. Organic foods are going to be generally cleaner than other foods so that you can limit the amount of toxicity in your body. Benefits of this include improving energy, mental clarity, overall wellbeing, mood, and improved health of all of your organ systems, muscles, bones, and joints. Using a superfoods list of your must-have foods is going to assist in shopping and cut time and costs in the process!

Healthy Habits: What do I do if I cannot find organic options?

Always look for the best options you can find. When organic is available, choose organic. There are farms which may not have the financial backing to classify themselves as officially organic, and you can buy from these vendors also.

Looking at the quality of your produce is another excellent method of choosing your food. If you find a lettuce crop which has many great certifications and not the organic stamp, and if it looks luscious and very fresh, chances are it is a good alternative if organic is not available. That being said, if an organic item does not look good enough to eat, do not eat it just because it is organic. Sometimes food can sit out too long, or other factors may occur after it has been moved on from the farm and put onto the market. Use common sense regardless of whether something is organic or not.

Use our product Purifying Sulfate Minerals to assist with removing impurities from foods, if you purchase non-organic produce. Just soak your mushrooms or asparagus in water treated with Purifying Sulfate Minerals, and it will remove any unnecessary toxicity from your food, so it is safe to eat!
