Day 8 of Super Food Challenge: Cherries
29th Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 0

While we appreciate his example of honesty, George Washington didn’t know what he was missing the day he chopped down that cherry tree. Cherries are undoubtedly a power fruit in the Super Food Challenge. The most powerful thing about them is the melatonin they contain. Melatonin has been shown to help regulate your sleeping (especially […]

Day 7 of Super Food Challenge: Garlic
28th Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 1

You might need a mint or two after eating this super food, but garlic has some pretty good benefits, other than warding off vampires (and first dates). Since ancient history, garlic has been known for it’s amazing healing properties. It’s one of the oldest known plants in the world and it’s been used to treat […]

Day 6 of Super Food Challenge: Tomatoes
27th Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 0

To-may-to, to-mah-to…no matter how you say it, it’s SUPER. Tomatoes are a super food because they’re loaded with lycopene (another carotenoid), one of the best-known antioxidants for you. Lycopene reduces the risks of cancer, particularly prostate, breast, colon and lung. Eating tomatoes can also boost your immune system and guard you against illnesses such as […]

26th Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 0

No this is not a joke — chocolate lovers, your day has come! You might be surprised to know that dark chocolate (not milk or white chocolate) has a ridiculous amount of minerals, endorphins and antioxidants that ARE good for you.  Just like many of our other super foods, dark chocolate in moderation has been […]

25th Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 0

Sometimes you feel like a nut…sometimes you don’t…well, today you should! Almonds are what I call the “Good-looking” SUPER food. These nuts contain health friendly fats (monounsaturated). Did you know that eating a handful of almonds a day can enhance weight loss? Reason why? Because almonds have the ability to curb your hunger and keep […]

Day 3 of Super Food Challenge: Spinach
22nd Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 0

This blog post is brought to you by none other than Popeye himself. Spinach is sort of the mack daddy in the Super Food game.  I’d even go so far as to say it could be the most SUPER of them all.  Not only is it one of the single most healthy foods on earth, […]

Day 2 of Super Food Challenge: Cranberries
21st Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 0

For as small a berry it is, the cranberry is packed with nutritional value. Cranberries rank No. 1 in the antioxidant department, helping you fight off chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease.  They’re also known to particularly help prevent and treat bacteria-causing infections, such as bladder and urinary. A cranberry a day, keeps the […]

Day 1 of Super Food Challenge: Pumpkin
20th Jul 2011Posted in: Blog, Chiropractic Nutrition 0

Yeah, we decided to start this challenge with a bang. Hey, it wouldn’t be a CHALLENGE otherwise! I’m guessing about 95% of you saw “Pumpkin” and thought Pumpkin Pie…don’t worry, I did the same thing.   I probably haven’t eaten pumpkin since last fall, with the exception of my daughter’s baby food pumpkin and apple medley […]
