Plant Based High Fiber Foods

list of superfoods wellness origin

Why are high fiber foods important?

Foods which contain high amounts of healthy fiber are essential to include in daily nutrition! Fiber itself is a carbohydrate which is not digested by the body. Unlike other carbs which our bodies digest for our nourishment, it passes through the body undigested, and this allows it to benefit our health in ways different from digested foods! It helps to both absorb water and promote a healthy digestive tract when it passes through our systems. This means regularity in bowel movements and keeping you full longer. It also encourages healthy blood sugar levels. There are both soluble fibers, which dissolve in water, and insoluble fibers, which do not dissolve in water. Nature provides so many options such as organic fruits and vegetables when it comes to high fiber foods. Here is a list of a few of our favorites:

List of Superfoods Containing High Fiber Content

Carrot – 4g per cup

The root vegetable is excellent for satisfying your appetite and promoting a healthy digestive tract. Try having a full carrot at the end of your meal, and you will see these benefits! A health tip for bowel health is to save room after dinner, and a little later in the evening enjoying several carrots along with a tasty dip like almond butter and maple syrup. Then, use a colon support supplement such as our Wellness Origin Intestapurge 03. This makes for not only a healthy dessert option, but it also helps you with elimination and staying fit!

Sweet Potato – 4g per cup

Sweet Potatoes are a rich source of fiber which is included in a wide variety of meals, from salads to desserts! The potato is very filling in nature, and with 4g per cup, you can count on the benefits of eating fiber with this beautiful food!

Black Beans – 15g per cup

Beans have long been known for their high nutrient content, and they are very high in healthy fiber for your wellbeing. The fiber contained in beans makes it an excellent addition to meals with less fiber. You can enjoy beans as their own meal and in other ways. Beans are great along with wild rice for a beans and rice gluten-free alternative, and they can also be sprinkled into your favorite salad!

Raspberries – 8g per cup

Did you realize this beauty food had so much fiber the last time you enjoyed a fruit bowl or parfait? Enjoy these organic superfoods in a smoothie, in a bowl of fruits and superfoods, or simply on their own for a tantalizing experience!

Almonds – 13g per cup

Almonds can be enjoyed in smaller quantities, and we recommend enjoying a handful or two when eating. The reason is that nuts contain phosphates, and they are more challenging to break down than other foods. You can sprinkle almonds in your favorite salad, add nut butter as a dip to fruits or vegetables, or eat them plain! They are also great in their natural state along with fruits, so the fruits and nuts balance out each other for optimal nutrition.

Chia Seeds – 10g per 1oz, so 80g per cup

Chia Seeds are an amazingly fibrous food, which is excellent for a plant based diet. The tasty seed is excellent in a fruit bowl or smoothie. You can also create raw vegan desserts using chia seeds.

The Best Superfoods for Daily Snacks

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!

Superfood Supplement Capsules | Wellness Origin

Wellness Origin Superfood Supplements

What are supplements?

Supplements are condensed amounts of fantastic nutrition which have been placed into a capsule or tablet for easy consumption. An easy way to describe a superfood supplement is as a salad comprised of the best superfoods, condensed into a little capsule. A supplement can be various sizes, though usually, it is smaller than the tip of your pinky finger. A very high-quality supplement is going to contain concentrated vitamins and minerals for specific health-related benefits. An example is from our online organic food store, Cardiovascular and Nerve Focus. The supplement promotes a healthy heart and nervous system. It is also beneficial for overall energy and wellbeing.

Why take supplements?

The importance of taking supplements has increased in our modern age when much of the diet for many people is no longer fresh, farm to table foods. Supplements give to your body the nutrition that our modern diets are often lacking, so you can have surprising health, energy, mood, mental clarity, and overall feel great!

Why don’t we get enough nutrition in our daily food supply?

Foods are often grown in soil which is depleted from the nutrients soil is originally meant to contain. The result is fruits and vegetables are not going to include all of the nutrition you require for everyday health and energy! This is why it is essential to combine supplements into your daily nutrition regime along with gorgeous superfoods from nature, to allow your body to receive complete nutrition. It is also necessary to be more organic in the food choices you make, to benefit from foods grown in the best soils by caring farmers.

What are some of the best superfood supplements for beginners?

Our online organic food store contains a wide range of superfood supplements which are fabulous for everyday health! Here is a list of superfoods which you can find in our Store.

Wild Superfood Complete

The product is our full spectrum vitamin powder comprised of fantastic nutrition.

Improving energy, promoting mental clarity, promoting the wellbeing of all of the organ systems in the body, and improving endurance are among the fantastic benefits of our vitamin powder. Drinking as well is easy. Merely mix Wild Superfood Complete with your favorite nut milk, or drink it in a superfood smoothie.

Digestive Bitters Focus

The combination of nutrients in this formula support a healthy digestive system! When you are consuming a meal, it is essential to assist your body with proper digestion to have energy during and after meals as well as maintain a beautiful physique.
