Apples, Bananas & More

dropOur organic fruits are chosen at the peak of freshness, packed with vitamins and nutrients. Apples and oranges really deliver a healthy dose of Vitamin C, a natural antioxidant with cancer-preventing properties. Not bad against the common cold either!

dropBerries are true superfoods; they’re loaded with antioxidants and they also have a low glycemic index (GI) which can help regulate blood sugar. They also can help fight inflammatory diseases, like arthritis and allergies.

dropRich in potassium, bananas also contain considerable amounts of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C. Potassium plays an important role in decreasing the risk of high blood pressure and stroke, and helps to reduce stress, so relax and take a sip.

dropTropical fruits, like pineapples and papayas, offer their own special healthy properties. Pineapples contain the Bromelain enzyme, which helps with digestion and acts as a natural detox. It’s also known for anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting properties. Low in calories, it’s a super weight loss food too. Papayas are a great source of antioxidants, phytonutrients and Vitamins C and E. They’re great for the skin—papaya facials are popular skin treatments—and they may help in wound healing and skin problems like acne.

Spinach & Kale Leafy Wonders

dropLow in calories, packed with vitamins, minerals and other phytonutrients, spinach truly is a super hero among green leafy vegetables. It’s an excellent source of Vitamins K & A, magnesium, folate, manganese, iron and so many others, but it’s the phytonutrients—including flavonoids and carotenoids—that make the difference. Spinach’s many different flavonoid compounds have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. It’s also packed with lutein, making it great for eye health.

dropWhat about kale? Well, it contains more than ten times the Vitamin C and more Vitamin A and K than spinach, and it’s packed with all kinds of wonderful anti-oxidants as well. It also has more lutein too. Unfortunately, probably because of its somewhat stronger taste, kale loses in the popularity contest against spinach.

Super Seeds – Flax, Hemp and Chia

Flax-Hemp-Chia-Sesame-Poppy-SeedsdropFilled with heart-healthy Omega-3’s, antioxidants and lots of soluble and insoluble fiber, flax seeds should be in everyone’s diet. They’re are an amazing source of lignans, which have antioxidant qualities and may provide protection from many types of cancer.

dropHemp seeds are packed with easily digestible proteins, and contain all 10 essential amino acids, providing complete protein, rare for a plant. They offer more protein than flax and chia.

dropChia seeds have more beneficial heart-healthy fats than salmon. Chia seeds can help maintain good cholesterol levels and can be helpful in losing weight. They also have more calcium than whole milk. Sorry cows.

More Almonds & Cashews Please

dropCashews are a low fat nut, filled with the good kind of fat that helps lower bad cholesterol. They also are packed with magnesium that is important for bone health, and studies have also shown that proper magnesium levels can help reduce migraine headaches, manage high blood pressure, regulate sleep patterns and reduce stress.

Quinoa Stands Alone

Keep calm and grab a beet!
