You’ve heard about Powerhouse Foods, but what exactly are they, why do you need them, and can they really protect your body against serious illness?
What are Powerhouse Foods?
Powerhouse Foods are fruits and vegetables that pack a nutritional punch so intense that they can help to protect and augment good health. In fact, some foods are so nutritionally dense, they can help the body to fight chronic illness – even cancer.
Which Powerhouse Foods Are Best For Good Health?
To really benefit from Powerhouse Foods, you need to eat a wide range of them – ‘eating the rainbow’ is a great way to look at this, making space for green, red, yellow, purple and orange fresh foods in your regular diet. Within that list of superfoods, there are a few that harness extraordinarily high levels of vitamins and minerals.
Which Powerhouse Foods Should I Be Eating Right Now?
Papaya – Contains cancer-fighting Beta-cryptoxanthin. This readily available tropical fruit also contains the vital enzymes papain and chymopapain, which are believed to reduce inflammation. Papaya is also rich in carotenes, vitamins C and B, folate and pantothenic acid.
Sweet Potato – A fabulous and versatile source of cancer-fighting beta-carotene, sweet potato is almost a ‘complete food.’ In other words, it contains a smorgasbord of all the vitamins and minerals your body needs for good health.
Kale – The dark green leaves might need a bit more TLC than softer, milder spinach leaves, but switching them into your vegetable chiller box will pay dividends for your health, with cooked kale containing an incredible 11 times more lutein/zeaxanthin than raw spinach.
Brussels Sprouts – The cancer-fighting compound indole-3-carbinol (IC3) can be found in several cruciferous vegetables. However, IC3 is present in much greater quantities – almost 4 times more – in brussels sprouts than broccoli, for example.
Raspberries – Who would have thought that these little juicy berries, with their versatile, jammy sweetness, are also front-line fighters against metabolic diseases and cancer? The kids’ favorite summer berry contains more ellagic acid than other fruits, giving it serious Powerhouse Food credentials.
