“Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” 

~ Mike Adams

 

Superfoods are nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Eating them can reduce the risk of chronic disease, prolong life, and people who eat more of them are often healthier and thinner than those who don't. Even if you already eat healthy, tweaking your diet to include some of these Superfoods can drastically improve your health.

 

Come learn about my favorite Everyday Superfoods as well as Advanced Superfoods. Learn how to make great tasting fresh juices, green smoothies and medicinal smoothies. Get the chance to see and taste Superfoods in action!
