What Are Superfoods?Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future Without legal definitions to confine and restrict Superfoods, everyone may have their own slightly different interpretations or top 10 superfoods list, or even different concepts of superfoods benefits. Some of the old familiar top superfoods and their health benefits always show up on almost everyone's list.
Some people list 12 Superfoods while others are more ambitious with excellent books on The 200 SuperFoods That Will Save Your Life: A Complete Program to Live Younger, Longer There are easily hundreds of power foods and you'll develop your own list, I've limited mine to about 50 and it was hard to keep it so short!
Superfoods are called super foods because they contain high concentrations of critically important nutrients, are generally low in calories and high in Antioxidants. They are respected in all cultures and are included in ancient healing therapies, such as Tradidtional Chinese Medicine or Ayurvedic remedies.
Superfood Deniers?Some claim that anything edible is food and that it's all the same, fast food, processed food, industrial food, synthetic & false foods. They claim that using the term superfood is a marketing scheme.
Some conventional allopaths reject the entire concept that any food can provide any health benefit. I raise my glass to these individuals and wonder if they load their plates with GMO veggies and other false foods, or if in the interest of their bottom line they only hope that we follow their advice?
According to Richard C. Cook, veteran Project Manager for the U.S. Treasury Department and Policy Analyst for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: "Cheap, mass-produced foods are largely based on grains and beef raised by massive agribusiness firms, so that the atrocious American diet is inextricably linked with capitalist enterprise controlled by Wall Street.
American farming at present is completely incapable of supplying nutritious foods on a scale that would make a difference. In order to furnish natural and healthy foods to poorer markets would require a revolution in American farming where small family farms using heirloom seeds and natural farming methods would once again become prosperous.
Unfortunately, this sector has been destroyed by agribusiness and by the federal government policies, not to mention bank lending practices, that favor it. We also have a massive food chemical industry, closely aligned with the pharmaceutical industry, that thrives on doctoring unhealthy and non-nutritious food, with the aid of the Food and Drug Administration which approves their chemical formulas."

6 Reasons why diets fail
Diets actually make your fat cells fatter.
Trying to starve a fat cell only boosts its ability to store fat, take in new fat, and multiply. Fat cells respond to starvation by holding onto the fat they already have and becoming more aggressive at taking in new fat once the diet is over.
When you skip breakfast, for example, your stomach growls and sends a message to your body that it is starving and it immediately begins to store fat for future use.
The Vitamix Solution: Regular meals and healthy snacks of fiber-filled whole foods are all part of the Vitamix Lifestyle.

Eating Superfoods Daily
Healthy eating means trying to include as many healthy foods and herbs as possible. People that have ever had a serious, life threatening health challenge, tend to be the type of person that becomes deadly serious about eating healthy every meals, every day. They are not dying to stay healthy.
They are also the type of person that takes healthy living and healthy eating 100% deadly serious.
They appreciate good health, having lost it, and will do everything possible to restore, reclaim and rebalance any health challenges. Anything less than 100% healthy eating for them is unacceptable. Each of us is different, with different backgrounds, challenges, perspectives and expectations. Each of us must choose, and be responsible for, our desired level of health.
Every right thing you do is a step in the right direction, every bite of toxic false food represents a future health challenge or possible crisis. Even though it may not seem conceivable that false food restaurants and false food supermarkets would deliberately sell us food that destroys our health, the truth exists whether we "believe" it or not.
We are truly what we eat. But more than that we are also part of the earth from which our foods are grown, we are from the foods, grains and grasses of any animals that we eat. Thus, by eating animal flesh and the crops, or slop, that they have eaten, we become what they eat.
The below listed superfoods are just some of my favorites, power packed with super nutrition and real goodness. What could be quicker, easier or more delicious than a SuperFood Fruit Smoothie? Or a Superfood Veggie Smoothie?
The Green Smoothies Diet: The Natural Program for Extraordinary Health is very helpful to get you on the right path. Raw Juicing: The Healthy, Easy and Delicious Way to Gain the Benefits of the Raw Food Lifestyle will help complete your Superfood smoothie learning curve.
