In today’s topic, learn more about superfood recipes we specifically recommend for those focusing on a leaner physique while staying healthy and energized! You will also see “Key Learning Points” throughout the topic, to guide you to learning important knowledge on weight management.
KEY LEARNING POINT: Eating a highly plant based diet promotes a healthy and fit body.
Before we dive into a few superfood recipes, it is necessary to recognize the importance of staying hydrated towards keeping your body slim. Picture the mass of a human body, and see that the entire body needs water throughout it. Often we think we are hydrated when the body needs even more water!
KEY LEARNING POINT: The majority of our body is water, so it is vital to support all of your body’s functions with the amount of water you need daily.
We recommend starting the day with 24 oz of water to kick-start your system. Throughout the day, stay hydrated by keeping a water bottle with you. The consistent hydration method is the best way to figure how much water you truly need. When you are thirsty, drink from your bottle. When you take a break, drink your water. Before meals, drink water. Total how much water you drink each day based on how many times you refill your water bottle. Signs of proper hydration include high energy and focus, good mood, consistent bowel movements, and overall satiety.
First on our superfoods list is a superfood salad. Salads are fantastic because you can have so many combinations that you will always have the ability to rotate what you are eating. We recommend salads for lunch and dinner especially, and you can enjoy a salad in the morning for breakfast if needed. You can also have a portion of a salad as a snack. A Superfood Salad means combining a variety of superfoods into one salad.
Examples from Your Superfoods List
An example of ingredients to combine includes fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, raw cheese, raw organic, and sprouted nuts or seeds and more. You could combine peppers, avocado, raw cheese, mushrooms, and asparagus into a lunch Superfood Salad. For a dinner salad, you could enjoy radish, Brussel sprouts, leafy greens, cucumbers, raw organic sprouted wild rice and raw cheese. You may enjoy plant based salads for as many meals as you like, though you do not need to eat superfood salads for every meal.
Juice and Smoothies
Next on our superfoods list are juices and smoothies. Both foods are hydrating and provide amazing nutrition for the body. Juices are great because they are pure liquid if you desire a break from solid foods for a snack or meal.
KEY LEARNING POINT: Remember, the more mass you eat, the more mass is in your body, and this contributes to your overall body size at any given moment! We recommend eating equal portions of your meals on a daily basis, and maintaining a healthy digestive system with frequent, balanced bowel movements.
Smoothies are blended, so they naturally have a fibrous bulk to them, making smoothies excellent for providing a denser meal for the body. Smoothies assist with bowl management due to their consistency.
