Best Protein To Build Muscle – 10 Plant Based Superstars!


Best Protein To Build Muscle - 10 Plant Based Superstars!

In the fitness industry there are always many questions about protein, such as which is the best protein to build muscle, what are the cleanest proteins, and understanding the amino acid profiles of different protein sources. Most crucially of all though is how to make sure you are getting all that your body needs, whether you be on a muscle building program or a weight loss diet.

In this post I’m going to break it down for you a bit more and speak without bias about my personal experiences of ONLY eating plant proteins, and consuming a plant based diet for the last 12 months.  (I’m no animal rights activist or anything like that – just a regular health freak)

Firstly, you should know that I have always been into fitness – doing a regular mix of running, power walking, weights, and swimming, and before going plant based my normal diet was already what I considered healthy, well at the time anyway. Lots of fruits, vegetables, lean meats and dairy, plus a shed load of supplements which were all working OK for me, but literally just OK.


I Needed Something More!Plant foods improve endurance

But sometimes just OK isn’t enough: I wanted to not catch the bugs and colds I caught every year without fail, and most of all I wanted my insomnia to improve – but as much as I was working out and trying harder and harder with both diet and exercise, things just weren’t moving to that extra level that I wanted. Bear in mind this is MY body i’m talking about, yours may be different and you may experience things differently, but I can only speak from my own experience.

I think I was getting to a stalemate with my routine so decided I needed to shake things up a bit. I have studied in depth plant based nutrition, and some of these studies were from athletes themselves who had found that they were experiencing their best ever endurance and faster times with plant based eating. 


Meet the Iron Man Champion

One of these guys I studied that stands out the most to me was Brendan Brazier, a Canadian Iron Man champion who was basically a raw vegan AND one of the fittest men on the planet. Seriously, just click on the link and take a look at the guy for yourself if you don’t believe me. He’s super strong and toned, and he built THAT body on plants!

Reading this guys autobiography blew my mind as these facts were coming straight from this champion horses mouth, so who the hell can argue with that? Definitely NOT those people who think you can only get enough protein by eating meat! The proof was in the pudding with this one, and this, along with my own feeling that I needed to take things a step further for my health, was the catalyst for me to start on my plant based journey.

I’m not going to pull any punches, it was hard at first and I fell off the wagon 3 times before something just ‘clicked’ into place –  but after that I just knew it was forever and I haven’t ever looked back. I haven’t gone completely ‘raw‘ like Brendan as I am just not ready for that extreme yet, however I did make the vow to go fully plant based to see how my body reacted.


Learning as You GoLow GI plant foods

The first few months were a bit turbulent as I learnt what my body needed, how to obtain enough protein, and what the BEST SOURCES were in terms of amino acids and bio availability. But now I think I have it down, and the results have been astounding.

I also need to point out that I am on a healthy plant based diet that contains barley any processed or junk foods,  and minimal refined carbohydrates.(OK, sometimes on the odd occasion I may treat myself to a piece of cake or some dark chocolate, but not all the time).

It is still possible to be plant based or vegan and still be very unhealthy, due to eating too much junk food.There’s a bit of a misconception that vegans just eat fruit and vegetables, but there are in fact lots of high sugar and bad fats in many vegan convenience foods, so if you want the results you are looking for on a plant based diet then it needs to be done properly.




This had to be first on the list simply because it’s such a major feature in my life now. I have relentless energy, and don’t really ever feel tired even after a hard workout, which I know is down to my highly alkaline anti inflammatory diet.


The Thing About Inflammation:

chronic inflammation means more aching muscles after exercise

Chronic inflammation is now known to be the root cause of almost every known illness and disease. It wreaks havoc in the body, and most of us are suffering from it due to highly acidic diets (ie.diets filled with junk foods, refined sugars and animal products – especially dairy), some of these animal products are worse than others but you get my point.

Some people may rebuke this claim, but all I can say is I unequivocally know 100% that ALL the benefits I had on this list are due to less inflammation in my body. And I never ate junk foods before, so it must have been the animal products that were keeping me feeling under par. There really is no other explanation, and I’ve spent a year of my life testing it for myself.



I really don’t ache so much after a hard workout like I used to, and if I do it is nowhere near as much as before, and my recovery is MUCH quicker. Again, this is down to less inflammation in my body (I can find no other explanation).



Eating less inflammatory foods has allowed my body to detoxify itself more efficiently – that and my amazing green super food powder that I take every day. Together with an anti inflammatory plant based diet they have worked in harmony, and have boosted my skin, hair, nails and EVEN vision to new levels. Yes, I can honestly ‘see‘ better!



I think this is due to my body being able to detoxify itself more efficiently, due again to having less inflammation to deal with –  along with a low GI diet (most important) which is keeping my blood sugar stable, I now sleep more deeply than I did before. All this is obviously good in terms of adequate muscle repair, not to mention energy levels.

5. BRAIN POWERalkaline foods reduce inflammation and help your memory

Yep you guessed it, another one that is yet again down to lower inflammation and better detoxification of the pollution and heavy metals from our environment – all of which affect the brain. I also have a better memory capacity these days because my body is ‘cleaner’, allowing me to think much more clearly.


No more PMS for me either, which I can clearly see now was because I was loading my body up with animal hormones. I’m no medical genius but it makes sense that we shouldn’t have another animals hormones in our body throwing our own hormonal system out of whack.



A low GI plant based diet will slow down the aging process on many different levels, the most prominent being BLOOD SUGAR CONTROL. When we have stable blood sugar we aren’t having the constant insulin spikes and troughs, all of which ACCELERATE the aging process and boost your chances of getting diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, alzheimer’s and many cancers.

Another reason is because the plant based diet, by its very essence, means you will in fact be eating a lot more PLANTS! As in fruits, vegetables and legumes – all of which are bursting with nutrients and antioxidants (which are free radical scavengers). Too many free radicals in the body from junk food, smoking, alcohol, trans fats and environmental pollutants accelerate the aging process.

You can see by my wonderful list of plant based diet side effects why I’m now a lifelong convert. Why would I ever want to go back when every day feels better and better now body is REGENERATING instead of DEGENERATING?


Next Up: Let’s Talk Protein

BEST PROTEINS TO BUILD MUSCLEcombining proteins for a complete protein

There are more plant based proteins than you can probably imagine, but you will need to mix them up a bit for a ‘complete’ amino acid profile. New research suggests that you don’t actually need to have the ‘complete profile’ in one hit. You can actually spread it out across the day, which is much easier, and allows for a more ‘natural’ way of eating without having to worry if you are getting everything you need in one meal.

However, having said that it is actually a good idea to get a complete protein profile in with as many meals as possible, for the simple fact that this will make them lower GI meals. This way of eating will keep you fuller for longer and will serve to help the fat burning process (due to the fact you will be eating less overall as you won’t feel the need to snack so much).


What is A Complete Protein Profile?Combining pulses with grains

To have a ‘complete‘ protein profile means a food or meal has to contain all 9 essential amino acids. On a plant based diet it means you will need to mix legumes such as lentils, beans, soy beans and peas, with grains such as wheat, rice, corn, amaranth, millet and pearl barley.


The Wonders of Quinoa – A Perfect Food!

QUINOA is the only known ‘complete‘ plant protein and should become your best friend on a plant based diet. It also contains omega 3’s and impressive amounts of calcium and iron as an added bonus!


SIDE NOTE – Make Sure You get Your Calcium!

Calcium is also CRUCIAL on a plant based diet, but luckily there are many sources of it and I urge you to check them out before you change your eating habits. Luckily, I have already devised a list of the ‘Highest Plant Sources of Calcium so you don’t need to delve any further.


There are some plants that are much more impressive in amino acids (which are the building blocks of protein) than others and should be added to your diet every day. The rest will just come to you naturally – especially when you are eating a whole food, low GI diet.

Here I will do two lists, one for the best whole food proteins, and one for the best plant based protein powders. If you are in a training program you will need to incorporate some protein powders to be doubly sure you’re getting all you need.

Not everything on this list are necessarily the highest protein plant products per 100 grams, but they will work out to be the highest considering they are going to be the main components that will add bulk to your meals and you will be eating a lot more of them by weight.,

For instance almonds and pistachio nuts are higher in protein than chickpeas per 100 grams, but you wouldn’t really eat that amount of nuts in one sitting because of too much fat and calories etc. However, you could easily eat 100 grams or more of chickpeas as the main component to a meal and get in MORE protein than the nuts. Make sense?

You should however add ALL different protein sources to your diet for the best results as they all have their own unique nutrient profiles. Here are many more that aren’t in this particular article for you to include ‘List of Highest Plant Proteins’.



Here are some of the best plant proteins that you should add as the bulk ingredient to your meal, and their amounts of protein per 100 Grams

1. SOY BEANS 36.0g

2. LENTILS 24.6g


4. PEANUTS 24.4g (and peanut butter)

5. GREEN PEAS 23.8g

6. BLACK BEANS 21.6g

7. CHICKPEAS (hummus) 20.0g

8. TEMPEH 20.3

9. QUINOA 14.1g

10. WHOLE WHEAT (bread, pasta)



  • PEA
  • HEMP
  • CHIA

How To Use Plant Based Protein Powders:

Mix them up! Don’t stick to one – use a couple at a time. Hemp is already considered ‘complete‘, but it’s still good to combine as they ALL have different nutrients. You could pick one that you prefer the taste of, but always mix some hemp with it for omega 3’s. OR you can buy already made up blends that taste much nicer, and often have lots of added nutrients to make them more nutritious.



Points to Remember on Your Plant Based Diet

  • Always be sure to get an array of amino acids by food combining throughout the day.
  • Make sure you eat foods every day from the plant based calcium list.
  • Eat at least 10 PORTIONS of fruits and vegetables a day for antioxidants and fiber.
  • Have a protein shake after training.
  • Cut out all refined sugars, if you need help with this then check out ‘Quitting Sugar in 10 Easy Steps’.
  • Eat in moderation, healthy fats, especially avocado, coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Have a green super food powder shot every day, such as barley grass, chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass, or better still, buy a couple and mix them up. Alternatively, go for a blend like the super food blend that I take which is one of the most superior I have ever found. Check it out here – Dr. Schulze’s Superfood


I hope you can now see from this post that it is possible to build muscle from plants, and once you start doing all of the above you you’ll be well on your way to superior health and a much leaner more defined body. If you have any questions then please post in the comments thread below. I would love to hear your thoughts and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you

What is A Healthy Lifestyle? – Your Ultimate Guide

What is A Healthy Lifestyle? - Your Ultimate Guide

What Is A Healthy Lifestyle?

This can mean different things to different people as it’s often about perspective, and by this I mean we are all at different stages of our lives, and at different levels of knowledge about food. Living a healthy lifestyle is a journey, you learn as you go, and you will never stop learning.

Some people believe they are living a healthy lifestyle by adding an apple to their lunch or and taking the stairs instead of the escalator every so often; while others go to the extremes of only eating organic, raw foods, drinking lurid green drinks (which I am actually a big fan of, but more about that later), and getting up at 5am to get in that hour long training or yoga session before a days work (which I am not  a fan of).


The Road to Ultimate Health is a ‘Journey’5 am Exercise class

The former of the above isn’t really going to do anything for you in terms of getting ‘healthier‘ (especially if your main diet consists of junk foods, such as refined sugars and trans fats), because in this case, eating the odd piece of fruit isn’t going to cut any mustard. But by the same token you probably aren’t yet in a place on your healthy lifestyle journey where you fancy getting up for a 5am workout.

The reason why I call a healthy lifestyle a ‘journey‘, is because that is how it feels; the body and mind need time to change, adapt and grow. It’s a process and if you were to jump straight in at the deep end, chances are you would fall off the wagon very quickly.


Changing ‘Old’ Belief Systems Can Be Challenging

This is exactly why it’s good to start with small changes, to give your mind a chance to not only form new habits, but change its deeply embedded belief systems and build new neural pathways in your brain.

The changing of old belief systems is the key here, and like with many other new journeys and paths in life this is no different; the mind needs time to adapt and making small changes, and taking things one step at a time is the best and proven way to form new habits.


Where To Start:

In this post I am going to give you some tips on changes you can start making today that will start you off on your amazing journey to health. And you will start to feel good within days, and every day better and better after that.

By the time you’re a year down the road you will feel totally transformed, be bursting with energy and vitality, your skin will be clear, your eyes bright, and most awesome of all you will be helping to protect yourself from ALL the major diseases that affect 4/5 of us in the modern age. I’m talking the BIG FIVE which are diabetes, heart disease, cancer, depression (and other mental illnesses), and degenerative diseases.

Below are my top tips for starting your healthy journey. Make 1-3 changes a week and stick to them, don’t try to do too much at once, and give yourself a chance to get used to this different way of living.

Because this is just too much of a vast area to cover in one post, I highly recommend that after you reach the end of this article, you come back and read the highlighted links to some of my other posts as they hold important information and are HIGHLY relevant to a healthy lifestyle. Within this website you will find all the help and information you need to change your life and turn your health around for good and I hope you will find it very useful.


If You’re on a Tight Budget Do Not Fear!

I know not everybody can afford fancy superfoods and gym memberships so I have made allowances for that. You can live a healthy lifestyle on ANY budget and you really shouldn’t let a lack of funds be the reason for not giving your body good wholesome food and regular exercise.




Start by taking a look in your kitchen cupboards, fridge and freezer and take note of all the high fat and high sugar foods you have. If you look at labels then you can see at a glance how much sugar is in a food, it is under the ‘carbohydrates of which sugars‘ section. Anything over 22.5g per 100g is considered high, and anything under 5g is considered low.


Free Sugars – The Bad Guysfree sugars cause a blood sugar spike

The average person is consuming more than double the ‘safe’ amount of sugar than the recommended guidelines. I say ‘safe’ because it is in fact dangerous to repeatedly consume more than our bodies can assimilate – too much sugar causes a blood sugar spike, which triggers an insulin response, and when this happens on a continuous basis things will eventually turn ugly.

An insulin response is quite normal and natural after a meal, BUT an unnatural amount of sugar on a consistent basis will more than likely cause insulin resistance. This then leads to type 2 diabetes and also increases chances of many other diseases such as obesity, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, and many cancers.

So knowing all this should be the incentive you need to start eating less sugar, which really is the NUMBER 1 thing you need to do to for your healthy lifestyle. Below are the amounts of ‘free’ sugars‘ in grams that is considered safe by medical professions for you to consume per day.

  • Men – 38 grams (9 teaspoons)
  • Women – 25 grams (6-8 teaspoons)
  • Children under 8 years old – 12.5 grams (3-4 teaspoons)

This isn’t much, and seems mean when you consider that one can of soda is 10 TEASPOONS of sugar, but then I don’t make up the rules. Anyway, there is light at the end of the tunnel for all you sweet toothed ones out there because this only applies to free sugars and NOT whole sugars.


The Difference Between The Two:

FREE SUGARS:High GI sugars are unhealthy

Free sugars are so called because the origonal food source has had its sugar extracted from it, and so it is then a ‘fractured‘ food. The extraction process of many foods turns them high GI, by which I mean their sugars hit the bloodstream quickly because their fibers and nutrients have been removed – all of which would have otherwise ‘slowed down’ those sugars. This is done with many foods and not just sugar, but for now we will just focus on sugar.

Example:- Good old-fashioned white table sugar is a ‘free sugar’ because it has been extracted from its fibrous cane and then further more, in the refining processed all of its nutrients are inadvertently removed. This means the body doesn’t have to ‘work‘ to break down those sugars more slowly, as this work that the body should be doing has already been done. As sugar gets broken down and refined even further, as in the case of syrups and fine icing sugars, it becomes even higher GI and even MORE unhealthy. Think high fructose corn syrup!



Are all basic white sugar and derivatives of, such as syrups, sugar powders, sweets, confectionery, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, soda’s AND fruit juices. Yes, even fruit juices, because they have had their fiber taken out and juiced down for an easy, but unnatural consumption of fruit. You could easily drink the equivalent of 10 oranges in a juice, BUT you would never eat 10 whole orange in the space of 2 minutes like you can when it is juiced, which means your body will be hit with an unnatural amount of fruit sugar. Remember, our body was designed to eat the ‘whole fruit’.

This process also applies to refined flours, white rice, white pasta, white bread etc, though ‘technically’ not a sugar they are still high GI, and therefore have all the same after effects on the body and still in fact act the same in the body as any other sugar. So thinking you are safe because you’re ‘not sweet toothed‘ isn’t necessarily the case.



Whole sugar’s are sweet things that haven’t been fractured in any way and are still in their ‘whole’ form such as:-

  • All fruits – the lowest sugar being berries of all kinds, and the highest sugar are tropical fruits such as bananas, mangoes, pineapple, papayas and grapes.
  • Dried fruits
  • Slow roasting sweet vegetables such as parsnip, butternut squash, beetroot, sweet potato and carrots really brings out their sweetness.
  • Sweeteners such as xylitol, stevia, date paste, and brown rice syrup are all the lowest GI substitutes but should still be eaten in moderation.


Now you have an understanding of sugar and the bad sugars in your cupboards, let’s move onto FAT. Often fat is demonised unfairly but we still need fats on a healthy diet: just the right kind of fats.

Trans fats are the baddies here, and these include almost anything deep-fried – and pretty much ALL junk foods contain trans fats as their primary source of fat, for the simple fact it is cheap. These cheap fats are made in a factory process that adds hydrogen to vegetable oils to make them more solid, but this makes them very bad for our bodies.

You will find these trans fats on your food labels under the term ‘partially hydrogenated vegetable oil‘. A trans fat is also produced when oils are heated more than once for cooking purposes like in most fast food joints, who will use the same cooking oil to deep fry their foods over and over again.

Foods in your cupboards that will contain either trans or unhealthy fats will be things like biscuits, cheap commercial chocolate, cakes, pre-made frosting for cakes, ready meals like pizza, frozen chips, burgers, and anything deep-fried.



These are the fats that you should be using in the future to cook with, and to pour cold onto salads and dressings

  • Coconut Oil
  • Olive oil
  • Extra virgin oilive oil (for using cold only)
  • Sesame oil
  • Avocado oil


Need Help Clearing the Junk From Your Cupboards?Clear out junk foods and add in low GI healthy plant foods

Many people will probably have a lot of items to start swapping and changing in their cupboards, and this is where it could be of much benefit to read this post ’10 Easy Steps to Eating Clean’. This will explain in more depth how to go about this, and also how to start replacing food products over time. Remember, you don’t have to do it all at once.



Once you’ve sorted all the rubbish out from your cupboards you can start to think about going for more healthier options when shopping. As well as the above healthier versions of sugars and oils you should add in the following and read ‘A Beginners Guide To Eating Plant Based’.

  • Fruits, especially dark berries.
  • Vegetables, especially leafy greens, and orange coloured veggies. It is good to eat a ‘rainbow’ of colours to get the full spectrum of phytonutrients and antioxidants.
  • Pulses, including lentils, beans such as cannellini, borlotti, soy, kidney, butter, aduki, chick peas, and green peas.
  • Nuts of all kinds.
  • Seeds of all kinds.
  • Wholegrains such as Quinoa, brown rice, brown pasta, amaranth, pearl barley, millet, buckwheat.


SUPER FOODS:Green super food powders will detoxify your body

Adding specific superfoods to your diet will be the most important thing you can do if you want to boost your health completely into the stratosphere. The difference this makes to how you feel can only be experienced and not explained. Super foods don’t need to be obscure and bank breaking products, they can come as some of the most budget friendly and easily available foods. Just check this out and you’ll see what I mean ‘Top 10 Budget Superfoods’.

The word ‘Super Food‘ is the term given to a food, or group of foods that have high amounts of antioxidants, phytochemicals and nutrients. Antioxidants in particular act as free radical scavengers in the body and can help prevent, and EVEN REVERSE the aging process. Yep, you heard that right, antioxidants are THAT important and will slow down the aging process both inside and out.

You can go to whatever level you wish with your healthy eating lifestyle, but I do recommend if nothing else, that you take a shot of green juice every day as I do, such as wheatgrass, barley grass, chlorella, or best of all buy a blend of all of them.

My absolute favorite blend is Dr. Schulzes Super Food Powder as it is of such high organic quality that you literally feel a boost of energy within 20 minutes of taking it. Truly awesome stuff, and the best I have ever found.


2. EXERCISEExercise burns fat and boosts mood

Fortunately you don’t actually need to pay for expensive gym memberships in order to get fit, as you can either do it in your own home, or better still use nature’s very own fitness facilities. Opportunities for fitness are everywhere and you come across them every day, like the beach for running and hills for climbing.

A physically fit body is MAJORLY important to a healthy lifestyle, as the fitter you are the stronger your heart will be, and the less chance you’ll have of sickness and disease. Also, having good amounts of muscle mass will help your body to burn calories even when you are resting, as muscle burns more calories than fat just to maintain itself! Amazing news for those wanting either to lose, or just maintain a healthy weight.

For tips on how you can incorporate regular exercise into your life and how to find the right exercise plan for you, please read my post ‘The Importance of Physical Exercise’, which will help you to get started.


SLEEP:REM sleep is important for health

Getting enough good quality sleep is another absolutely VITAL part of a healthy lifestyle. If you don’t get enough then you slowly start to fall apart in both body and mind.

Your body is healing and rejuvenating itself while you sleep and doing all the repair work it cannot do during your waking hours, when it is busy using its resources elsewhere. It is the deep REM sleep that is most important, and we need 2-3 cycles of that a night which we can only get if we get a good 7-9 hours kip in.


Lack of Sleep Can Literally kill You!

Not sleeping enough on a consistent basis can lead to serious health issues, such as cardiovascular disease, irregular heartbeat, heart failure, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes: this is due to blood sugar levels being thrown completely out of whack.



You cannot escape many of these, but you can some, such as the chemical cleaners you use in your home and the lotions, potions, soaps and make up that you put onto your body. Your skin is highly absorbent and everything you put on it makes its way in.

Sounds quite awful when it’s put like that, but really makes you realise just how much junk your body has to detoxify every day, and the least we can do is give it a helping hand by cutting down this chemical assault as much as possible. There are all sorts of organic and chemical free cleaning products, make up, shampoos and soaps on the market so it is pretty easy to find swaps for most things.


The Importance of Keeping Toxic Load Down:pollution is toxic and green super foods can help you detoxify

Keeping our toxic load down is VERY important as when the body starts to get overloaded with toxins (which it often does in our highly polluted environment) it will gradually break down. and accelerated aging and sickness will eventually occur. This brings me to another great side effect of the alkaline plant based diet, and especially the super food green powders, as they ALL help to neutralise and flush toxins from the system.

TOP TIP – Extra virgin coconut oil is the ultimate multidimensional product – it can be used not only in cooking, but as a skin moisturiser for face and body, make-up remover, deep conditioning treatment for hair, and it’s great for teeth whitening.




Stress is another potentially life threatening disorder, but luckily one that we have complete control over if we are willing to put in the time and effort. Stress, when out of control is a big killer, if not THE biggest killer of our time, on one end of the spectrum it can cause headaches, low immunity, frequent infections, palpitations, loss of sexual desire, and insomnia, and on the other end of the spectrum, can lead to heart disease, heart attack cancer, and accelerated aging and inflammation BOTH of which are at the root cause of almost every modern day disease and illness.

You can probably now start to see the connection of all things in the body, and how everything has a knock on effect on everything else to eventually bring about ill health and disease. When you start to see things from another perspective you can see how it’s actually a hundred times EASIER in the long run just to keep yourself healthy in the first place!


Ways to Reduce Stress:Yoga can be part of a healthy lifestyle

  • Meditation
  • Breathing exercises
  • Exercise, especially weight bearing
  • Healthy Diet
  • Getting enough good quality sleep
  • Talking about your troubles
  • Switch off all phones/internet/TV distractions and read a book
  • Take up a hobby you know you’ll enjoy
  • Exercising or walking in nature
  • Visualisation techniques
  • Yoga

6. KEEP ON LEARNING NEW THINGSReading and learning can slow down aging

No matter what your age, keeping yourself in a continual cycle of learning new things about the world around you is SO important to an all round healthy lifestyle. Learning keeps your brain sharp, which slows down the aging process, and also gives you a sense of achievement and worthiness.

You can keep your brain active by reading books, starting a new hobby, enrolling on a course that could send you down a new and exiting career path (you can do this at any age, so don’t let that stop you) OR, start your own blog as I have, sharing your interests and experience to help others.The world really is your oyster when you start realising that anything is possible and in every second you are actually creating your own reality.

Foods High In Antioxidants – Top 21 Anti Aging Foods


Foods High In Antioxidants - Top 21 Anti Aging Foods


Antioxidants keep us youthful and so we need a plentiful supply of them to maintain healthy bodies and to keep our brains sharp well into old age. All plants based foods are high in antioxidants, but some more so than others. In fact some of these top 21 anti aging foods truly deserve super food status due to their impressive array of phytochemicals and other nutrients that help keep us in tip-top health.



Antioxidants are specific molecules found in certain foods that help inhibit the oxidation of other molecules (ie the molecules inside every cell in our bodies). This is important because oxidative damage is one of the root causes of most diseases, illnesses and AGING in general.Unpaired electrons are free radical scavengers

Oxidative damage to our cells is caused by many seemingly benign every day activities and addictions (see list below) that cause our cells to split thus triggering free radicals in our body. These unpaired electrons called free radicals then scavenge our bodies looking to pair themselves up again, causing damage on their way to our DNA, our cells and other proteins.

Therefore it is crucial this free radical damage be negated as much as possible, because this damage when it gets out of control can have a domino effect, eventually triggering diseases such as cancer, alzheimer’s, and most other age related illnesses.



  • Over exercising OR not exercising enough Both of these can cause oxidative stress so stick to no more than an hour a day, and by the same token make sure your’e doing at least half an hour 5 times per week. 
  • Over eating, especially sugars and refined carbohydrates – Over eating causes our mitochondria to release more ‘exhaust’ so to speak, and this  creates higher free radical levels from the burning of fuel from our food for energy.
  • Excessive stress – Something that we’re all guilty of in our busy lives, excessive stress literally is a killer! It causes us to release the stress hormone cortisol, which in turn produces inflammation in the body thus creating free radical damage. It’s also worth mentioning here that chronic inflammation underpins most diseases and illnesses.Alcohol causes free radical damage in the body
  • Too much alcohol – Excessive drinking increases cytokine levels which are molecules that cause oxidative stress through inflammation.
  • Smoking – an obvious one! – Cigarettes contain over 4,000 chemicals – which sounds absolutely horrendous right? And it’s these chemicals – the worst being formaldehyde, lead, arsenic and ammonia that cause the most destructive kind of oxidative stress which will almost certainly lead to disease and ill health.
  • Ionizing radiation – Now this can mean many things, but most commonly is exposure to the sun (as in sun damage), or mobile phones, WIFI, airplanes and X-rays can all cause oxidative stress in our bodies.
  • Fungus – Molds and fungus like those found in your bathroom or in damp houses contribute to oxidatve stress in the body, as do candida and other fungal infections in and on the body itself.
  • Burnt foods – Especially burnt meat or cheese – the process of burning food oxidises it and when consumed causes oxidation, thus free radical damage in the body.
  • Poor sleep and chronic insomnia – Both of these cause stress due to the fact that the body hasn’t been able to rejuvenate and repair itself properly – in the long term this will have a snow ball effect in terms of oxidative damage and the resulting problems.Pollution in the air damages our detoxification system
  • Pollution and chemicals – Again this can come in many forms, from household pollutants such as cleaning products, air fresheners, soaps, shampoos and make up etc, to the outdoor pollution of industrial toxins, airplane fuel and car exhaust fumes. Even our food is full of chemicals, preservatives and fertilisers and the water we drink full of yet more chemicals
  • Infections – Chronic long term infections such as chlamydia and gum disease all contribute to oxidative stress and damage in the body.
  • Bad liver and gut detoxification – When the liver becomes overwhelmed in its pursuit of detoxifying all of these toxins it will produce yet even more free radicals which perpetuates the cycle even further. At this stage a proper detoxification may be necessary to bring the system back into a state of balance.



As you can see there are many ways in which our body comes under free radical attack, and many of them simply cannot be avoided – BUT you can go a long way to giving yourself a helping hand, which is where antioxidant rich foods come in. These alone should not be your only protection, but they will help, especially alongside other lifestyle changes:-

  • A healthy diet.
  • Adequate exercise
  • Not smoking.
  • Watching alcohol intake.
  • Staying away from as much as possible heavily polluted areas.
  • Lots of houseplants to purify air.
  • Where possible buying organic food, cosmetics and soaps.
  • Staying away from or cutting down drastically on junk foods, fried foods, burnt foods, sugar, and refined carbohydrates.

The detoxification systems of the body


Remember, your body is designed to detoxify itself, and without this magnificent system beavering away inside of us 24/7 we would not survive even a day. It is important to understand that we were not designed to detoxify from all the harsh pollutants we are exposed to in our modern world. This puts a huge strain on our liver and other detoxification organs, meaning eventually the battle is lost and we succumb to disease and sickness. This is why it’s vital we take precautions to help prevent this.



This list is of the most commonly found foods that are the highest in antioxidants. You should aim for at least 7+ portions of these per day to keep your body in good health and detoxified adequately. They are also great for anti aging, and should be eaten in their most rawest state possible (or very lightly steamed) which will help to keep those nutrients and fibers intact.


  1. Berries of all kindsGrape skins are high in antioxidants
  2. Dark Chocolate (at least 70% cacao)
  3. Pecan Nuts
  4. Kidney Beans
  5. Corriander
  6. Pomegranates
  7. Pumpkin SeedsTomatoes are high in antioxidants and lysine
  8. Red Wine/ Red Grapes/ Raisins
  9. Sweet Potatoes
  10. Kale
  11. Broccoli
  12. Tomatoes
  13. Prunes
  14. Oranges
  15. SpinachBell peppers have colourful antioxidant pigments
  16. Brussels Sprouts 
  17. Onions
  18. Beetroot
  19. Bell Peppers
  20. Green Super Food



Side Note: There are many green super food powders available on the market that are all great for detoxification purposes including spirulina, wheatgrass, barleygrass, moringa and blue/green algae’s. They deliver a concentrated hit of nutrients that have been picked and freeze dried at their peak.

I take a shot of a green food supplement every day and I couldn’t live without it as I notice the difference so much in my complexion and energy levels. I can only presume if it’s showing from the outside then it must be doing so much more on the inside that I can’t even see!

The powder I use and can thoroughly recommend as being the best I’ve  tried is Dr. Schulze’s Green Super Food Powder. This has a unique blend of all the best green superfoods and grasses and takes your skin to another level – it’s true what they say that beauty really does come from the inside!

High Calcium Foods List – Top 9 Plant Sources


Calcium is a mineral that is necessary for life – it builds strong bones, helps blood clotting, is vital for transmitting messages through the nerves, and also in the release of certain hormones. If we don’t get enough through our diet then our body will leach it from our bones leaving them weak and vulnerable. Find out the top 9 plant sources of this essential mineral on this high calcium foods list.



fruits and vegetables are full of phytonutrients

If you’re striving towards a more plant based way of living, then you may very well be wondering where your’e going to get your calcium. Many of us have been conditioned to believe that we can only get calcium from dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt – but this is far from the truth.

In fact it is so far from the truth that you probably won’t believe what I’m about to tell you – that there are many plant foods that are actually HIGHER in calcium than dairy products.

Not only are these foods high in calcium but they are also super healthy in other respects because they are higher in protein, fiber, antioxidants, plus other phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals than most animal based foods. This makes the plant based diet when done correctly with attention to what you are eating, a very healthy way of life.

Attention to what you are eating is the important part here as your health could actually be worse off if you become a junk food vegan. It is crucial before embarking on any restrictive eating plan that you have an understanding of what your body needs, and which foods you need to be eating to obtain it.



You will need to make sure you get enough protein (which is actually way easier than you think), calcium, low GI carbohydrates, and a whole array of nutrients from fruits and vegetables.

Sounds hard and like too much effort right? Well believe me, I thought the same thing when I started out on the plant based lifestyle, but the benefits have been so immense that I can’t even begin to describe in this post – clear skin, clear mind, vitality and increased energy are the most prominent side effects I have noticed since cutting animal products from my diet.


Just Learn the Basics to Begin with

Carrots are full of calcium

You don’t need to know everything right away; just the basics and the rest you will learn as you go along. It is so easy nowadays to live the plant based lifestyle what with the internet being awash with vegan recipes, and our supermarkets have also followed suit by stocking plant milks, cheeses, frozen meals, coconut ice creams (yummy by the way) and loads of other goodies. 

Even fast food joints and restaurants are adding vegan menus, allowing you to eat out without being looked upon like an alien from outer space when you order your tantiaising plate of vegetables. It’s literally never been easier to convert to this lifestyle than it is right now, and it’s only set to become an even bigger trend this year.



When you start eating plant based, or even if you have decided to cut out dairy for whatever reason (maybe you are dairy intolerant), then you will need to be mindful of getting enough calcium, and it really is best to get this from food rather than take supplements which just aren’t absorbed as well.

Calcium is so important to health because when we don’t get enough our bones get weaker and leave us more susceptible not only to breakages, but the dreaded osteoporosis that affects 1 in 2 females and 1 in 4 males at some point in their lives. These odds do often have other factors involved such as genetics, ethnicity, bone structure, body weight, certain diseases, and some medications BUT getting enough calcium is a major player here.

Of course, these risks can be negated by making sure that you eat a healthy diet that meets your calcium needs; stay within a healthy weight range; and keep bones strong through weight bearing exercise. Get these down and you should be OK.







MEN OVER 70 – 1,200 MG PER DAY



 1. TOFU

Sliced Tofu is delicious

Tofu can be one of the best sources of calcium on the plant based diet due to the fact that most tofu is already fortified with it. You will need to check different brands to find one that contains good amounts, but some offer up to 33% of your daily intake in just one cup.

Tofu is also extremely high in protein and contains all 8 amino acids, plus iron, copper, zinc, B1 and the minerals manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium. 

Soy products are estrogenic and can lead to hormone disruptions in both men and women if eaten in large quantities, so you should stick with just a couple of servings a week



CALCIUM CONTENT – 1 cup (canned) 370MG 38% of your daily intake.

Beans all contain calcium, but the highest by far are black eyed peas which can easily be added to stews, soups, and salads. They also contain good amounts of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and vitamins A, D and C, and you can buy them canned for ease of use.



Kale is full of fiber and calcium

CALCIUM CONTENT – 1 cup (cooked) 197MG 19.7% of your daily intake.

Kale and Swiss chard are the highest calcium of all the vegetables, and also contain fiber, phytonutrients, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and vitamins C, E and A.

These greens are known super foods due to their superior nutritional profile, and should be eaten only lightly cooked or steamed to retain their nutrients. I like to saute mine quickly with some coconut oil (fat helps the absorption of many of kale’s nutrients) and also some garlic, chili and lemon juice.



CALCIUM CONTENT – 1 tablespoon 140MG 14% of your daily intake.

Sesame seeds hold the highest calcium content of all the seeds ( but the others are also good) and1 tablespoon contains the same amount of calcium as half a cup of milk. You can easily eat these seeds in the form of tahini, which you can then add to meals, or use as a topping sprinkle for cereal.

It is best eaten pulverised up to a powder form, otherwise a lot of it just goes in and comes out whole again – so chew thoroughly!



Butternut Squash is full of nutrients

CALCIUM CONTENT – 1 cup 84MG 8.4% of your daily intake.

Not only is butternut squash high in calcium but it also contains carotonoids, which are great for the prevention of heart disease, arthritis and asthma.

It is also a magnificant source of nerve soothing vitamin B6, potassium, folate, panothenic acid, and manganese – making it a vegetable you should consume regularly on your plant based diet.



CALCIUM CONTENT- 23 nuts (large handful) 76MG – 7.6% of your daily intake.

Almonds are delicious, and full of protein and nutrients – calcium being one of them. Plus they are an easy and transportable snack that can be popped into your handbag and taken anywhere. Perfect for those times when you are tempted to snack on unhealthy fast foods!

They are also choc full of fiber, and their skins are said to contain over 20 different antioxidant flavenoids, all of which are good for anti aging. They also contain vitamin E, magnesium, riboflavin, and potassium to boot.



Oranges Contain Lots of Calcium

CALCIUM CONTENT – 1 large orange 75MG – 7% of your daily intake.

Well who knew it? this was even a new one on me. Oranges contain a really high amount of calcium – plus they are delicious and like almonds, easily transportable. They also contain what they are most famous for – vitamin C, along with potassium, B-vitamins, vitamin A, and magnesium.

Oranges are also great for re hydrating and refueling sugars after a workout.



CALCIUM CONTENT – 1 large potato 68MG – 7% of your daily intake.

I just love sweet potato wedges, baked in the oven with coconut oil and some spices like garlic, paprika, and chili flakes. In fact, they are just so versatile and can be incorporated into any meal, and they are healthier and lower GI than your average white spud. Low glycemic foods keep blood sugars stable and weight under control.

As with all orange coloured fruits and vegetables, sweet potato is high in beta-carotene which is converted into vitamin A in the body. Sweet potatoes are another super food because of their superior nutrient content, and they are also high in vitamin C, B6, and magnesium.



9. BROCCOLIBroccoli is a high calcium vegetable that fills you up

CALCIUM CONTENT 1 cup 62MG – 6% of your daily intake.

Another one of natures super foods, broccoli is not only high in vitamin A but also contains a compound that has the ability to work on a genetic level to ‘switch off’ cancer genes, AND to hinder the progression of cancer. Now if that’s not a super food then I don’t know what is!

It is one of the highest protein vegetables that also contains lots of vitamin C, B6 and vitamin A.


10. FIGSFresh and dried figs are high in calcium

CALCIUM CONTENT – per 3 figs – 52MG – 5% of your daily intake.

Figs both raw and dried also contain magnesium, manganese, copper, potassium, B6,and vitamin K, so they really are a fantastic addition to any healthy diet plan. They are delicious fresh when in season, but equally as good when dried when they go all sweet and chewy.

Add them chopped to salads, or bake fresh figs with a little honey for the ultimate sweet treat. Great with coconut yogurt for breakfast or dessert.

Healthy Foods to Lose Weight – 15 Plant Based Superstars!

Healthy Foods to Lose Weight - 15 Plant Based Superstars!


Switching to a plant based way of eating often in itself makes the loss of those extra inches inevitable. For a start, plant based eating means cutting out huge swathes of the fast foods and junk foods that can keep us looking bloated, listless and depressed. Here I have devised a list of healthy foods to lose weight, and they are the 15 Plant Based Superstars!

Incorporating the foods on this list into your diet as much as possible will not only leave less room for the junk, but their high nutrient and fiber content will help keep you full and satiated, and away from the biscuit tin or whatever your weakness may be.


WHY HIGH GI FOODS ARE BADsweets are High GI and mess with blood sugar

Another important factor of the foods on this list is that they are all low GI (glycemic index). GI is the rate in which the sugars in our food are released into the bloodstream, the higher the GI the faster the release – which is bad in most circumstances as this sugar spike signals insulin to be released from the pancreas.

All of this happens in order to clear those sugars out of the blood as soon as possible, but guess what? Those sugars if not burnt off are then stored straight into fat cells which just keep  expanding and expanding, and so we put on weight.


A Low GI Diet is the Healthiest!

This is why a low Glycemic diet is crucial not only for weight loss, but also to slash your chances of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer and many other diseases. It is important to note that not all sugars are bad, especially when they are in their natural state, as a whole piece of fruit. This is because there will also be lots of fibers and nutrients present which will allow that foods sugars to be released more slowly.

So without further ado let’s get into the top 15 foods that will not only help bring many changes to your life, but will also help you to understand the powerful effect’s food can have on your health and well-being.

Remember that all foods, especially fats, require portion control and should be REPLACING other unhealthy fats or foods and not added as an extra on top. Use them as swaps instead.



1. COCONUT OILCoconut Oil is a Healthy Fat

Yes this may be a fat, but it’s a unique fat in the respect that its combination of fatty acids can have a powerful effect on your metabolism to help you BURN FAT. And for extra good measure coconut oil helps you burn stomach fat specifically, which is the most dangerous kind that must be kept to a minimum to protect long term health.

Those of us who are predisposed to carry fat around our middle have a much greater risk of diabetes, heart attack, metabolic syndrome, sleep apnoea and premature death. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, this belly fat also entwines itself around internal organs causing no end of damage and stopping those vital organs from functioning properly.

Adding coconut oil instead of your usual fats to food, is the easiest way to get this healthy fat into your diet. It’s great in stir-fry’s, cakes, and roasted vegetables, and because of its high smoking point it is also safe for frying at high heat as it doesn’t go rancid or become a trans fat like many other fats do.


2. AVOCADOAvocados are low GI


Another fat, but a good one! Avocados are one of natures super foods, and a plant based diet staple. I eat at least half of one of these creamy and delicious fruits every day.

Avocados are so satiating that not only do they fill you up, but it’s proven they can keep blood sugars stable for hours. This means you won’t be thinking about OR craving the nasty white stuff – and by that I mean SUGAR, or any other refined carbohydrate for that matter.

Avocados contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, plus fiber and lots of heart healthy monounsaturated fats. It is also another fat that, like coconut oil,  has been proven to help reduce belly fat specifically due to its unique fats and low GI rating.

For more information on this super food please read my post about ‘avocado and weight loss‘.



The high content of omega 3’s in hemp seeds have been shown to be anti obesity – which makes them a great fat burning food. Omega 3’s also help regulate hormones, mood, sleep cycles and stress.

Add these seeds to your morning cereal or simply eat them alone as a snack any time of day, they are delicious.

Hemp seeds are also amazing for your hair and help it to grow thick and fast, they are especially good for weak and brittle hair that is prone to falling out. I’ve tried this one for myself and it works a treat, you do however need to eat 2 tablespoons a day for this to be really noticeable, so therefore you need to add them to your daily calorie intake.



Pumpkin Seeds are a Healthy Fat

Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, a vital component of the immune system. But they are also great for weight loss due to their high amounts of protein, fiber and many other nutrients. And they help reduce overall body fat by keeping blood sugar low and reducing insulin resistance, which is vital for weight loss.


Sleep and Weight Loss

Another great little nugget of information about the pumpkin seed is it is high in tryptophan, so they can also aid you in getting a good nights sleep, which brings me on to my next big fat burning tip.

Getting enough sleep is CRUCIAL for weight loss because being adequately rested suppresses the hunger hormone ghrelin. When you are tired your body releases too much of this hormone in an attempt to give you more instant energy, and that is when you will find you crave the worst types of refined carbohydrate and sugary foods.



Raw unsalted almonds are a highly convenient snack that can either be carried about easily in your bag, left in your glove box compartment, or in the office at work. They are immediately filling and satiating, low carb, and full of fiber, protein, and antioxidants – all of the ingredients for a great fat burning food.

Also, about 15% of the calories in nuts aren’t even absorbed so you can afford to have a couple extra!



Walnuts are High in Omega 3's

Walnuts – another super food, and for so many reasons. Firstly they are jam packed with ALA (alpha linolenic acid), which is a heart healthy and fat burning omega 3 fat. This fat also helps reduce your risk of diabetes, boosts brain power, and contains powerful anti cancer antioxidants.

The healthy fats in walnuts also boost metabolism which will help keep your body an awesome fat burning machine. Remember that 90% of walnuts antioxidants lie in their skins, so always eat them with their skins on and as fresh as possible. Read more here on theamazing benefits of walnutsand prepare to have your mind blown.



Quinoa is a magnificent high protein and high fiber seed that is often used to replace grains such as pasta and rice. And this is what makes it so fantastic because you are getting all the satiety of a grain but all the nutrients, protein and healthy fats of a seed, and all for much less calories.

Quinoa is full of essential amino acids, magnesium, calcium, iron, and vitamin B12, which are all essential for energy and therefore weight loss. Having a B Vitamin deficiency will mean your body cannot utilise nutrients efficiently, which will actually hinder your weight loss efforts. So it is very important to make sure you get adequate amounts.

The high fiber, high protein, low GI and low calorie content of this super little seed make it the perfect filling weigh loss food.


8. CACAOHigh Cacao Chocolate

Who doesn’t love chocolate??? Well did you know you can have this luscious treat and not hinder your weight loss efforts? Just be sure to have the dark stuff with ideally 70% cacao solids minimum to gain all the benefits of cacao’s high magnesium, anti aging antioxidants, and fat burning effects.

Chocolate contains a chemical that releases feelings of euphoria which is why it can be so addictive, but these chemicals also help release stress and keep you relaxed, both of which will curb emotional eating problems. Do not over indulge in high cacao chocolate though as it can have a stimulating effect and is probably best avoided close to bedtime.



An oldie but a goodie, grapefruit’s abilities to burn fat have been known since the eighties. Who remembers the grapefruit diet? But there is good scientific evidence in the grapefruit’s fat burning abilities, it reduces insulin resistance and helps to decrease levels of sugar in the bloodstream – and most importantly it actually contains a chemical that stops the body from storing fat.

In fact, studies have shown that half a grapefruit before a meal helps people to lose between 1-4 lbs of weight per week, and this was shown to happen WITHOUT changing the diet in any other way. Now this is just mind blowing information that definitely warrants a testing of the theory, or at least adding grapefruit to your diet as much as possible to help keep weight down.



blueberries are great for weigh loss

Berries are low calorie and packed full of anti aging phytonutrients and antioxidants, all of which help protect our cells from free radical damage.


Berries Help You Lose Belly Fat Specifically!

Raspberries and blueberries are particularly good for weight loss as they boost your metabolism –  plus they are also preventative against that dangerous visceral fat that entwines itself around inner organs and predisposed us to diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Add berries, especially frozen ones, to smoothies, breakfast cereals or porridge, or just eat as a snack anytime of day. A handful of raspberries or strawberries eaten if you are peckish before bed, gives a nice slow release of energy throughout the night, and will help keep you waking from night time hunger pangs. They are super low calorie and filling.



Oh, what a great, filling and easy snack these are! They can be a life saver in hunger emergencies, as their fiber and low GI sugars can really help keep you going until your next meal.

Banana’s not only actually help to speed up your metabolism (music to our ears), but also help to build lean muscle, making them the perfect food for those in training. In fact, this is the reason why they are so popular in the fitness world due to the fact  they pack so many nutritional punches. Please find out more little known banana facts here



broccoli is a weight loss superfood

Love it or hate it you should get used to adding broccoli to your diet as much as humanly possible, and here’s why. It is one of the highest protein vegetables that is also high in fiber that will help fill you up nicely, and all for only a very small amount of calories. You really get a nutritional bang for your buck here!

Another good point is broccoli actually contains a specific phytonutrient that enables you to burn fat at a faster rate due to its ability to stimulate fat cells.

I just lightly steam mine and have it as a side with almost every main meal – or stir fry with some coconut oil, chili, tamari sauce, and lemon. Delish!



Cinnamon helps keep blood sugar under control

Fragrant and delicious, cinnamon is just so versatile it can be sprinkled onto breakfasts, desserts, into smoothies, cakes, or added to hot drinks. It is one of the best foods to control blood sugar and insulin quantities, which is why it is so good for diabetics.


Lowers GI of Meals!

As you now know, keeping blood sugar under control is the number one way to stay slim and keep weight under control. And amazingly, cinnamon, when added to food can lower a meals GI by a huge 18-29%, AND it also speeds up metabolism, helps keep sugar cravings under control, lowers bad cholesterol and helps to burn belly fat.

These qualities are only found in real cinnamon, so be careful as there is a lot of fake stuff on the market. Always buy from a reputable organic brand. It is good to buy the actual cinnamon bark and grind it yourself, it tastes super fresh this way and you know exactly what you’re getting. The bark should be of the flaky variety not the hard tubes as that stuff just isn’t real cinnamon.

Learn more about the importance of making sure you purchase the right kind of cinnamon in my post ‘Cinnamon and Fat Loss’.



Protein powders really deserve a place on this list, as not only is protein low GI, but it also helps build lean muscle mass (which in itself burns fat) and it is filling to boot – leaving us less room for consuming high GI carbohydrates.

There are many different plant protein powders on the market including peahemp, rice, soy, pumpkin, quinoa, sunflower and potato.

I have taken to having a high protein/very low carb shake for breakfast, as it helps to keep the body in fat burning anabolic mode for as long as possible after sleep. I also like to add half an avocado to this for healthy fats, and to help fill me up for hours. It really works.


15. GREEN SUPER FOOD POWDERHigh Antioxidant smoothie

Green super foods such as chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass and barley grass are one of the best kept diet secrets I know of. The reason being, they are loaded with concentrated minerals, vitamins and antioxidants all of which detoxify the system. Toxins are held in fat cells that keep on swelling the more we keep bombarding ourselves with junk foods and other toxins – some of which are obviously out of our control, like those in the water system, air pollution, plastics, and pesticides.


Green powder – A Powerful Detoxifyer

In fact, we live in a toxic world and these toxins are contributing to making us fat. Super food green powders are powerful detoxifiers that will help kick start the process of cleaning out your system.

One of the best super food powders I have found is Dr. Schulzes super food powder. It has a mix of specially dried green superfoods, such as spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass, and barley grass, plus other super foods, fruits and vegetables. This fantastic supplement also contains high levels of B- Vitamins for energy and central nervous system support .

This green beauty actually gives you a hit of energy within 20 minutes, and I swear you can see you skin and eyes glowing for hours afterwards. I often take it before a night out, or when I need to look my best and need to glow – it really works a treat!
