SuperFood Omelet helps the brain and body

(NaturalNews) Foods that have an incredible array of health benefits that go well beyond just their nutrient value are considered 'super-foods.' When we combine certain superfoods together it creates nutritional synergy that boosts the bioavailability of the nutrients found within. The new superfood omelet is an example of superfood synergy that both powers up your brain and body.

Eggs: This has been a misaligned food for the past 40 years. Many people eat egg whites for the high quality bioavailability of the amino acids found within. Egg yolks, often discarded due to fears over saturated fat and cholesterol, are considered the most nutrient dense region of the egg. The yolk is loaded with anti-oxidants and B vitamins that have been shown in studies to raise HDL (the good cholesterol) and lower triglycerides. Egg yolk also significantly boosts metabolism and fat burning.

Eggs are a major source of the brain enhancing B vitamin choline. Choline also helps the liver detoxify correctly and increases fat-loss potential. According to Iowa State researchers in 2007, 90% of the American population is choline deficient. Egg yolks and egg based lecithins are some of the richest and most bioavailable sources of choline.

Choline is important for the brain for several reasons. It helps to produce phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin. These two molecules make up a particularly high percentage of the brain's total mass. Choline also helps to form a critical neurotransmitter in the brain called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is the body's primary molecule for sending messages between nerves & muscles.

Choline also helps protect the body's stores of a folic acid which is a key B vitamin for the development and maintenance of the nervous system. Finally, choline has important anti-inflammatory properties called methylation. This process of methylation plays a significant role in many chemical events which actually turn certain genes on and off in the body.

Spinach: Popeye got it right with this nutrient rich vegetable. Spinach contains its own type of plant based steroids called phytoecdysteroids. Phytoecdysteroids are similar to insect molting hormones and have been shown to dramatically increase glucose metabolism. This keeps blood sugar levels stable and minimizes the need for the critical fat-storage hormone insulin. Additionally, phytoecdysteroids increase human muscle tissue growth rates by 20% when applied in a culture medium.
Spinach is also rich in the powerful carotenoid anti-oxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. These phytonutrients are extremely important for healthy vision & brain function. Additionally, spinach is an important source of copper, zinc and selenium which boost immunity.

Red onions: These contain sulfur groups that powerfully assist the body in weight loss and detoxification. Red onions are also a rich source of the flavonoid anti-oxidant quercetin and the polyphenol anti-oxidant anthocyanin. These anti-oxidants prevent the oxidation of dietary and cellular fatty acids. This helps stabilize and protect the essential fatty acids we are consuming in our egg omelet. Additionally, red onions are a fantastic source of chromium which lowers blood sugar and enhances cellular insulin sensitivity.

SuperFood Omelet:
3-6 large organic, free-range eggs with organic coconut milk for creaminess - whip it up.
2 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Coconut oil
2 cups of Spinach
1/4 red onion freshly diced
Stainless Steel Pan

Apply coconut oil to pan and begin heating. Pour egg/coconut milk into pan and begin cooking. Flip one half over the other to keep onions in the center. Omelet should be solid but not black or burned in any way. Put it on a bed of raw spinach and apply apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, pink salt, and herbs. Homemade salsa or ketchup can be used as well.
