Three super foods to boost your health

February 9, 2009 at 3:23 pm 4 comments

They are actually liquids but I call them super foods because of their powerful anti oxidant properties.miso

Food number 1 is Miso Soup. This powerful food based on fermented soy and seaweed gives a complete protein profile because it is made from grains and soy beans. It is also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. The real secret to it’s power is in the fermentation. For centuries cultures worldwide have used fermented foods in their complete diet.

Many people are familiar with Sauerkraut from Europe which is another fermented food although I cannot stomach it well.

Food number 2 is Raw Milk and yes although a liquid it is a complete food and was once used as “white medicine”

The fear surrounding modern consumption of raw milk is the possibilities of getting poisoned from bacteria. In it’s pasteurised form itmilk contains no bacteria good or bad and is therefore no longer a living product. Here is a great article in it’s entirety.

Food number 3 on my list is actually Green Tea. It has been studied for its metabolism boosting effects and is very high in antioxidants which we need to attack the billions of free radicals we are exposed to through pollution, radiation, etc. It also lowers blood fats. Also green tea does not contain the tannins that black tea does which can inhibit absorption of Iron.

I sometimes have up to 5 cups of Organic green tea a day. It is also a great way to stay hydrated when you are sick of downing litres of water.

While this article doesn’t attempt to address the full scope I wanted to encourage you if you haven’t already tried then do try to green-teaimplement these three into your diet. You will instantly feel healthier.

    Very interesting, Tim! Not sure I can get into drinking raw milk, but I love Miso soup and green tea…have to start adding them more frequently.

    The way I see it, all 3 are good foods. Miso soup because of the high amounts of vegetable protein. I agree about consuming Raw milk because of it’s high levels of calcium coupled with the fact that it’s actually fine to drink it despite it’s “bad reputation” for bacteria content. Green tea because of it’s high antioxidant levels, ECGC, and how it naturally boosts one’s energy levels to promote more physical activity in any given day.
