I have just finished reading a book by David Wolfe that talks about the 10 best superfoods. I thought the list might include such foods as broccoli, spinach, blueberries, fish, etc. But I was surprised to learn that none of those foods were included. Instead he spoke about maca, chia seeds, goji berries, hemp hearts and cacao nibs, to name a few. Frankly, I had not heard of them, let alone try them. So I started researching a little and I couldn't believe the nutrients that some of these foods contain. Also included in the list were spirulina, chlorella, coconut and honey, especially bee pollen and royal jelly.
Presently, I do eat many different foods that I know to contain a good source of nutrients. Foods like quinoa, miso, kamut and spelt have graced my table for years. I try to eat whole foods and avoid processed food as much as possible. But as I have begun to add some of the superfoods above, I have noticed a big difference in my energy level, and I find I don't get hungry in between meals. As a bonus I have noticed less stiffness all over and less joint pain. I can only think that my body is receiving nutrients that it has been missing for a while.
