Superfoods are a much discussed topic. Often discovered secrets of tribal communities and used by them for centuries, they are a special category of food found only in nature. Revered by most and given unfair treatment by others who often don't understand their proper use or function, we discuss the Sari Foods standpoint here and dispel a few myths.
At Sari Foods we believe in a whole foods, plant based diet that is high in nutrients. Following a diet that people have thrived on for thousands of years, we focus on a way of eating that is based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, reducing (or eliminating) our intake of meat (including chicken and fish), dairy products, and eggs, as well as processed and highly refined foods like bleached flour and refined sugar. This diet base provides the optimum environment for the introduction of superfoods.
By definition, Superfoods are low in calories and high in nutrients - meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. Recent concerns over growing conditions and soil quality means that it is now more than ever important to focus on organic, non-fortified produce. This makes organic superfoods a superior choice as a source of antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals including macronutrients and those all important micronutrients, especially those that we cannot make ourselves.
There's a lot of misunderstanding about the functionality of superfoods and they are often given a bad press when actually, like all foods, they aren't designed to provide nutrients in isolation. They are meant to be consumed as part of an already established nutritionally balanced diet and certainly not in place of any other goodness! That's not to say that a dose of Spirulina isn't going to offer some nutritional value in a diet otherwise full of processed or refined foods and it can certainly still provide a much needed boost. However, enriching a healthy, organic and plant based diet with superfoods is the best way to utilize all that bioavailable goodness. Simply put, amongst an unbalanced diet, you just won't get the most out of your superfoods.
