As some of you may know, I had my first taste of spirulina just weeks ago during my reboot juice fast. I wanted to experiment while fasting, be brave, and try new things. Well, I was brave for sure and downed a glass of powdered spirulina in water = holy cow with the pasture in all! That’s what it was like too – a surprise taste of rich green farm pasture. I drank it all. Hey, I’ve downed much stronger tasting drinks actually, guzzled is more like it, so why be scared of the dark green super juice…right? Right…
I love this recipe for Tart Cranberry Apple Crisp, because it's made with superfoods like cranberries, leaves the nutrient rich peels on the apples, and substitutes much of the butter for canola oil.
While apples are now in season, many of us will bake and enjoy at least 1 apple crisp. I know I will be. Apple crisp is one of Randy's all time favorite desserts. But don't forget, cranberries are in season too! What better way to sweeten tart cranberries than by adding some to your apple crisp! Yummy!
The benefits of goji berries have scored superfood status! If you haven’t heard of goji berries, it’s crucial you read on. You won’t believe what you’ve been missing out on!
David Wolfe, author of Superfoods, asserts, “Goji berries are perhaps the most nutritionally rich berry-fruit on the planet. They taste delicious and are well-balanced for nearly all body types, blood types, and metabolisms.”
Thank the cacao bean for the birth of chocolate. Chocolate bars, chocolate milk, chocolate ice cream, chocolate covered fruits…we love it all and are always looking for an invitation to indulge in it. Consequently, there’s always new research being conducted on chocolate and the benefits from eating it – the darker the chocolate with less sugar, the bigger the benefits.
The benefits of mushrooms have risen to superfood status. It’s easy to overlook the quiet mushroom when sifting through the rainbow of fruits and vegetables at the market. These humble little fungi may not speak out loud with bright, rich color, but their nutritional value sends it leaping ahead with the blueberries and broccoli!
