All Things Food supplies a variety of superfoods for your health from green, leafy vegetables like kale to seaweeds such as wakame or dulse. Superfoods are nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods that pack a lot of punch for their weight. They are an excellent source of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients. Combating the toxins in our environment with foods that are grown and raised in the same toxin-loaded environment is not enough. A diet focused on whole, natural, organic foods can help. And consuming superfoods that are sustainably produced like our superfoods can take your health to an even higher level.
All Things Food is continuously seeking high quality superfoods. Watch our shelves and share with us your resources for these powerful allies to our health.
Here is a list of some of the many superfoods we offer:
Algea: Spirulina is a blue green micro-algea that is a 60-70% complete protein containing all essential amino acids. This percentage is higher than that in your average piece of meat which is only 25% complete protein after being cooked. Spirulina was consumed for thousands of years by the Aztecs until the 16th Century. Our supplier, Frontier, offers a high quality powder form of the algea that can be added to smoothies, salads and spreads or even simply dissolved in water.
Green Leafy Vegetables: Kale, bok choy, spinach, salad mixes, broccoli, and other dark green vegetables are provided by our local, sustainable producers and can be easily grown in your own family garden. When not available locally, we resource them organically to better assist our health. A diet that includes extra helpings of these powerful greens assists the blood, brain, immune function and kidneys reducing heart disease and cancer. With our bulk produce special, adding these to your daily menu can save money at the checkout as well as the doctor’s office.
Fruits: Goji berries are a red berry with a unique taste and a similar texture to a raisin. They provide 500 times more Vitamin C than any other fruit as well as a large array of other Vitamins, amino acids, proteins, and trace minerals. Foods Alive, a local producer of raw foods from Hamilton, Indiana, has a full line of superfood products including delicious organic, raw Goji berries.
Nuts: Coconut oil provides the body with a unique source of medium-chain fatty acids that are easily digested and converted to energy. It speeds up metabolism, supports healthy metabolic function and aids the body’s defense to illness.
Seaweeds: Dulse is a red seaweed available in flakes to sprinkle on salads, vegetables and soup. Nori is most commonly used in sushi rolls. Kelp can be consumed as a powder in a capsule. Seaweeds are the most nutrient dense plants as they have access to all the nutrients of the ocean. These powerful plants provided by the ocean support our bodies in ways that are as numerous as the nutrients they provide assisting our blood by purifying, alkalizing, and eliminating toxins.
