Super Foods

Superfoods are not just those found in the Himalays or the Amazon rain forest but also all vegetables and fruits found locally. Only difference is that they are not exotic sounding or easy to market at a high price.

In my opinion all items mentioned on this chart are Super Foods: full of antioxidants, vitamins, fiber , sugars, essential fats and nutrients . I refer to this list whenever I go out shopping for groceries.

The McDougall diet is very close to the one I follow except no nuts and meat or fish. And the exercise is about half hour walk daily.

Fats that heal

Udo Ersamus,  cholesterol myth buster and guru of fats, writer of the book, “Fats that heal, Fats that kill”, made a blended oil of all essential fats in one. Ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats is 2:1. Remaining meals during the day will balance the omega-3 and omega-6 down to a healthy level required for good health.

Udo’s Choice Oil Blend can be found at www.udoerasmus.com plus the feedback from customers. Many have lost weight, gained energy and cured a number of diseases.

Now, I have created my own blend from flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and coconut flakes, Mix contains 6 tsp flax, 2 tsp sunflower, 2 tsp sesame and 2 tsp desiccated coconut, which I add to my green smoothie or grind and spread the mix over some yoghurt. By the way that is exactly the seeds I am taking with me on holidays.

Have a long, happy and healthy life.
