Superfood Recipes for Weight Management | Wellness Origin

Wellness Origin Superfoods List

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.

Hydration

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.

Superfood Salad

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.

KEY LEARNING POINT: Wellness Origin recommends adding our superfood powder Wild Superfood Complete to your next smoothie, as it provides over 70 ingredients for complete nutrition. Getting your essential nutrition in your meals every day will help you feel energized and satisfied, which is also a significant component in staying slim!

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.

– Add our Wild Superfood Complete vitamin powder, which contains wildcrafted herbs and organic ingredients for total nutrition.

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.
