Today I am sharing our top resources for looking and feeling your best this summer. In this article, I share our best organic superfoods with you to incorporate into your diet this summer. Superfoods are foods in the state as nature intended them, which contain high nutritional value. The foods I have chosen reflect the season, as we should eat lighter, more hydrating foods in a larger quantity when the weather is hotter. I also added superfoods with healthy fat for both vegetarians and meat-eaters, as we still want to make sure our bodies receive all the nutrition we need for our summer work, outings, and exercising.
Eating berries in the summertime is an excellent way to cool down and refresh, whether you are poolside or simply having a lunch break at work. Berries such as strawberries, blueberries, acai, and blackberries have high antioxidant content, so they are great for keeping you healthy and energized. My favorite ways to enjoy these fruits include in a delicious protein smoothie or added into a nut-based yogurt along with other superfoods like Acai Berry, Maca Root, and Raw Chocolate.
Citrus fruits: Superfoods for Health
Citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, and grapefruits are fantastic for providing hydration in the summertime. As we have mentioned before, these fruits contain structured living water, so they hold water in its purest state for your best vitality and true hydration. It is easy to get dehydrated in the summer due to the heat and the summer sunshine, so make sure you are juicing citrus ideally daily to compensate with these best organic superfoods.
These popular fruits are an excellent source of fiber and overall nutrition. The saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” was created with good reason. These fruits are further high in vitamins such as Vitamin C and minerals supporting whole-body health.
Leafy greens, including kale, arugula, chard, and spinach are excellent sources of healthy fiber and protein. This list of superfoods is very alkalizing for the body. It helps to rebalance your inner health, as much of the foods we consume today are acidic. I love to enjoy greens in smoothies, in a delicious salad of other superfoods, or alongside a salmon dinner. We highly recommend pairing starches and meats with leafy greens for nutrition balance.
This popular fish is a great source of healthy fat, which nourishes your body and supports healthy hair, skin, and nails. While we should consume a lot of lighter foods in the summer, I always find it important to keep healthy sources of fat in my diet in the summertime for nourishment and brainpower. Keeping a balance is always essential, in all seasons.
Best Organic Superfoods: Coconut
The versatility of coconuts in cooking and healthy lifestyle is simply amazing. Whether you enjoy coconut in your smoothie, as a cooking oil which does not go rancid, for oil pulling and teeth care, keeping your hair healthy, or moisturizing your skin. For nutrition purposes, coconut is an excellent source of healthy fat and fiber. I love to add it into my smoothies, trail mix, and cooking my eggs with it.
