Here is the Superfood short list:
- Coconuts (coconut oil 1:1 replacement ratio for butter) We grow these on our farm!
- Avocados (avocado oil can be replaced for canola oil when frying)
- Noni fruit Check out our free farm tour!
The whole raw noni fruit is a very potent superfood. Packed with over 165 beneficial compounds, including vitamins, minerals, flavonoids and 17 out of 20 essential amino acids. Raw noni pulp also contains all nine essential amino acids making it a complete protein. When processing raw noni fruit, we never let the fruit ferment and keep our dehydrators lower than 115 degrees Fahrenheit, so the enzymes, antioxidants, and other vitamins stay intact. When it comes to your health, you deserve the very best!
#HealthyEating is easier than one may think. By adjusting just a few foods, you can make a big impact on your health and waistline.
The first step to #HealthyEating is to swap foods that are high in fat, salt and sugar with more fruit, vegetables, and nuts. You know, healthy foods!
Remember: Small changes can add up to big results!
Below are some ideas to get you started!
Swap Potato Chips for Nuts
Craving something crunchy? Potato chips are high in sodium and trans fats (bad fats). This can increase the risk of cardiovascular issues down the road. In addition, potato chips are considered a refined carbohydrate. You know what that means? Blood sugar spikes making you feel worse later in the day. Looking for a better option? Ditch the doritos and reach for a bag of nuts!
Did you know? Individuals who regularly consume nuts are 14% less likely to develop cardiovascular issues later in life.
Nuts also contain unsaturated fats (healthy fats) along with fiber and protein. Keeping you fuller faster and longer.
#HealthyEating Tip: To receive maximum benefits, try raw unsalted nuts. This will help you avoid unnecessary sodium and sugar. Why raw? Click here for the answer.
