As evidenced by our longest-lived elders, the latest scientific research, and clinical practice in disease prevention and reversal, the Superfoods diet, and accompanying lifestyle, is key to optimal health.
Superfoods are plant-based, nutrient-dense, calorie-sparse, health-empowering foods. So eat from Dr. Todd’s Superfoods Pyramid…use it as your field guide. I have my patients take it with them to the grocery store to use as a shopping guide. And, do take my Eat Yourself Super 21 Day Superfoods Challenge! Your health is never stagnant, it is either getting better or worse based on your habits. The challenge is designed to ingrain the good ones and demonstrate how easy, fun, and delicious it is to eat healthfully via Superfoods!
By eating a diet rich in Superfoods, you will provide yourself with plenty of good carbohydrates, balanced proteins, good fats, bioavailable vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, plant pigments, enzymes, antioxidants, hormone precursors and other phytonutrients and phytochemicals, including biophotons and other essentials we have yet to uncover.
In this day and age, we all fall a bit short here and there. Depleted soils, altered microbiota (both on us and in our environment), as well as toxins and stressors are all around us. Sometimes we need to help ourselves out a little. The top of our Superfoods pyramid features those foods which help us to bridge this gap to optimal health and wellness—Functional Foods. Three very important ones are: Maca, Cat’s Claw, and Matcha.
