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!

Before you begin eating each day, we recommend you start your daily hydration. Drink 24 ounces of water first thing in the morning. Then, wait until you eat anything. The hydration component will help you to feel awake and energized, and hydrating helps with flushing toxins out of the body when you begin your day. Make sure you are keeping hydrated all day as well. Tips for hydrating during the day include maintaining a full water bottle next to you all day and taking breaks to hydrate.

Breakfast Superfood Recipes

For breakfast, we love recommending a fruit/nut/protein powder blend. The blend can be accomplished through several recipes.

1.Fruit Bowl with Coconut Milk

-Create a fruit bowl with coconut milk.

-You may also add to this bowl additions such as goji berries and raw, organic, sprouted nuts and seeds.

-We love to add toppings such as a favorite protein powder or nut butter.

An Example: Chop strawberries, peaches, and kiwis. Add coconut milk to the bowl if desired. Then, top the dish with pumpkin seed protein powder and raw, organic, sprouted almond butter.

2.Superfood Smoothie

-Create a smoothie with your favorite fruits and vegetables, protein powder, and raw organic sprouted nuts or nut butter.

An example of this recipe is mixing blueberries, spinach, kiwi, hazelnut butter, Wild Superfood Complete, and a scoop of your favorite protein powder.

Lunch with Total Nutrition

Mix your favorite superfoods in a superfood bowl for lunch! Add your choice of fruits, vegetables, raw cheese, mushroom, beans and more in this meal. An example of a superfood bowl for lunch is sprouted organic wild rice, avocado, mixed greens, raw cheese, mushrooms, peppers, and cucumber.

Snack Time

For a snack, we love to have a favorite juice such as a carrot ginger juice or a green juice. We also recommend carrots and celery with a nut butter of your choice. Organic Raw Trail Mix is also a great snack option, and mixtures include cranberries, pecans, and cacao.

Dinner Time

For your dinner, enjoy a delicious vegetarian meal such as a superfood salad with sautéed veggies and mushrooms. We recommend you sautee vegetables such as zucchini and asparagus with your mushrooms. Coconut oil is an excellent oil for making your vegetables. An animal-based protein meal for those who eat meat could be enjoying salmon with a superfood salad.

Fact or Faction – Organic Superfoods List Exposed

Organic Superfoods List Wellness Origin

Many people have heard about Superfoods and the many nutritional benefits they offer. But, as with much nutritional information, there are some misconceptions and conflicting ideas. This article addresses four of the most common misconceptions about Superfoods in a short quiz designed to set the record straight. Also, this article will teach you more about our organic superfoods list for your grocery cart.

Fact or Fiction: The Best Superfoods Quiz

Examine the statements below and determine if the statement is a fact or is fiction.

Question one:

Superfoods are wondrous foods for our bodies.

This is a FACT.

Superfoods are classified as such because they contain high amounts of naturally occurring vitamins, beneficial minerals and offer nutritional benefits for your body. Foods such as kale, avocado, acai berries, broccoli, mushrooms, and walnuts are considered superfoods because of their many health benefits. Pound for pound, these foods contain many more nutrients than most foods with few or no disadvantages.

Question Two:

Mainstream ‘superfoods’ are the only foods your body needs.

This is FICTION.

It is important to remember that nature has many abundant foods sources. Don’t forget about foods for your organic superfoods list like cabbage, radishes, and Brussel sprouts – many foods have beneficial nutritional content, regardless of whether they are marketed as a superfood.  One should always be wary of any claim that suggests one type of food source is all that is needed for proper nutrition. No one type of food can independently improve your health or prevent illness. People need an abundance of food sources to ensure they receive the proper amount of nutrition. Superfoods are special because they contain more nutrients than most foods while avoiding excess calories or unhealthy fats.

Question Three:

The only way to receive proper protein and healthy fats are by eating animal products.

This is FICTION.

While foods like Salmon are considered superfoods and have solid nutritional benefits, there are many plant-based superfoods that are important sources of protein and fats. These are especially significant for vegetarians who have fewer sources of healthy fats than others. Some plant-based superfoods include broccoli, mushrooms, avocado, beans and spinach. It seems Popeye was way ahead of his time. He recognized spinach as an important plant based superfood before anyone!

Question Four:

Avocados are super high in nutrition content

This is a FACT.

In the past, some nutritionists were wary of the high-fat content in avocados, but this was before Nutrition Data demonstrated there is ‘good’ dietary fat and ‘bad’ dietary fat. Not all foods high in fats are unhealthy. Avocados contain a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial nutrients. It is high in vitamin C, E, K, folate, magnesium, potassium, and B6. It is also a wonderful source of healthy fats.

Even the best superfoods are not a panacea. They will not make up for a steady diet of bad food choices. Having an occasional slice of avocado or a small portion of spinach will not undo the empty calories you get from eating fast food five days a week. Rather, superfoods serve as a healthy nutrient delivery system with few or no drawbacks. They tend to be natural, plant-based, and low in calories. Seek them out, indulge and enjoy them!

Organic Superfoods List for your Local Grocery Store

Our best organic health products

Superfoods are typically plant-based foods that are nutrient dense and good for your health. They are excellent sources of antioxidants and essential nutrients for your body. Our organic superfoods list is a necessary piece to keeping a healthy and fit body. Superfoods are not hard to find. You can find them at your local grocery store and health food stores. We recommend purchasing raw and organic superfoods as often as possible. Raw and organic superfoods contain the highest nutrients and do not contain any harmful chemicals that would counteract the benefits. Here are the organic superfoods you need to add to your grocery list.

Organic Superfoods List for Your Grocery Cart

  1. Blueberries. Organic blueberries are one of the best superfoods that contain potassium, fiber, vitamin b6, and vitamin c. Blueberries are a natural antioxidant found in almost every grocery and health food store. They are rich in minerals that support the health of the heart and help the body protect itself against disease. The fiber from the blueberries helps the body eliminate toxins and waste, helping you to feel better and become your best self.

2. Chia Seeds. Chia seeds are an organic superfood that has been used for thousands of years as food and as medicine. Chia seeds are rich in plant-based omega-3s, calcium, fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. The calcium found in this superfood is plant-based and higher quality than calcium found in most supplements found in your local grocery store. Benefits of chia seeds include healthy hair, nails, and skin, slowing down signs of aging, supporting the digestive system and the heart, and building strong muscles and bones. Chia seeds are one of the best superfoods to incorporate into your daily diet because of their wide range of benefits.

3. Nettle Leaf. Nettle is great for weight management. The nettle leaves support digestive health, increase metabolism,  help the thyroid function, and supports colon health, assisting the body in flushing excess toxicity. This organic superfood can help relieve joint pain, provide relief from allergies, help dry skin conditions, and are used to treat insect bites. Wellness Origin’s Rejuvenating Royal Tea contains nettle root and nettle seed. This product promotes energy, mental clarity, an increase in mood and well-being, and more! Rejuvenating Royal Tea contains several other plants and herbs such as chicory root and yerba mate to nourish and support the digestive system and increase energy levels.

4. Dark Leafy Green Vegetables. Dark green vegetables are very nutritious. This organic superfood is so easy to find in your local grocery store, but many people do not eat enough of them. Some examples of dark leafy greens include spinach, kale, parsley, broccoli, and lettuce. These vegetables contain high doses of easily digestible proteins, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

These vegetables specifically support heart health and help the body lower its risk of heart disease, support brain health, give an immune boost, support blood health, and help the kidneys to function properly. Eating these foods on a regular basis will help you stay in shape and continue onto your journey to becoming your best self.

5. Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are not often thought of as an organic superfood. They are very high in vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, and manganese. Sweet potatoes are low in calories despite their sweetness so that they can help with weight management. Some other benefits of this amazing superfood include an immune boost, supports the health of the nails, hair, and skin, supports digestion health, supports blood cell formation and blood health, and can help our bodies deal with stress. We recommend roasting slices of sweet potatoes with some raw organic coconut oil.
