Long ago, I learned that we really are what we eat and that the fuel we use for our bodies should possess the utmost quality and highest standards. To that end, it has been my mission to consume the best foods for my body and assist my family, friends and clients to do the same. Here are my top picks for feeling your best with the help of the most effective superfoods available in markets today.
Wheatgrass is immensely nutritious and full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Its juice has a high concentration of chlorophyll, which has purification properties. It’s also especially high in vitamins B-12, B-6, K, C and beta-carotene. In my own experience, I have used it as one component of different healing modalities implemented to shrink my own tumor years ago and to help my children repair broken bones more quickly. I consume it regularly to detoxify and feel that it increases both my energy level and my sense of well-being.
