A super salad powerhouse will boost your energy and provide you with vital nutrients and trace elements.
Super Salad Powerhouse
This powerhouse of a “Salad” can be loaded with nutrient dense basic foods of your liking. These foods will provide energy for many hours without roller coaster like highs and lows.
Your “Super Salad” includes phytonutrient dense greens, berries, seeds, carbohydrates and other powerful foods.
You can eat as much as you like without concern for calories or portion size.
Let Your Food Be Your Medicine
They have all the natural ingredients that the ancient philosophers talked about when they said “Let your food be your medicine.”
Add your favorite natural foods and keep out those that might bother you.
You might include cheese, eggs, anchovies and commercial dressings, but I discourage these.
Pickled and fermented foods may drive your body chemistry into acidity. Many health conscious people shun these for that purpose.
Use Your Imagination
Use your imagination and add things like sesame seeds, caraway seeds and whatever flavorful natural nice little friends that you like.
I make a huge salad that keep for about six days in the fridge.
If you add eggs, dairy products, avocados, bananas and other ingredients that don’t keep well, it’s better to add these shortly before eating. This is very important if refrigeration isn’t available.
As far as possible, keep the dairy products, cereal grains and starches to a minimum. The body sees fruit as sugar. You need to be wary about eating much of it.
I recommend The Paleo Diet for Athletes by Loren Cordain, PhD for a good understanding of my basic food thinking.
