Superfoods comprise a specific set of edible, incredibly nutritious plants that cannot be entirely classified as foods or medicines, because they combine positive aspects of both. The scientific evidence in this book outlines the discovery that superfoods are an essential part of a balanced diet and allow us to get more nutrition with less eating. Most of us have had the experience of eating all day just to keep our blood sugar up while receiving very little nourishment in the process. We also know that most of the conventional foods and fast foods today are nothing but empty calories. Because the nutrients in conventional foods are commonly depleted through processing, we must turn to new possibilities for whole and balanced nutrition.Superfoods represent a uniquely promising piece of the nutrition puzzle, as they are great sources of clean protein, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, good fats and oils, essential fatty and amino acids, and other nutrients. This new overview by bestselling raw food expert David Wolfe gives detailed information on nutritive, sustainable, and delicious superfoods such as goji berries, cacao beans (raw chocolate), maca, spirulina, bee products, hemp seed, and a host of others, along with recipes and suggestions for integrating these magical new foods into a transformative diet and lifestyle.
