Delicious
(NaturalNews) The superfood designation has been applied mostly to exotic food sources that contain very little bulk, few calories, but are high in nutritional value. Many of them, for example, chlorella or spirulina, are beyond home gardening capacity.

Disease healing and preventative herbs are well within the scope of home gardening. But man cannot live on herbs alone. There are foods with higher bulk and calorie amounts that are also considered superfoods by some. They can be grown in a home garden.

Just try to make sure your garden is in the backyard surrounded by a fence, or use containers that can be placed on patios or balconies. There has been a lot of local government hassling of home owners whose vegetable or herbal gardens were conspicuously planted in their front yards.

These raids seems to be an international phenomenon, reported often by NaturalNews. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

Some super healthy survival foods that you can easily grow

There are three ingredients you can grow in a private garden that are useful for juicing. They are carrots, kale, and cilantro. These three combined as a juice can offer a bundle of health benefits with lots of intact enzymes and nutrients in an easily assimilated liquid form.

Juicing carrots increases the availability of anti-aging and heart health protecting carotenoids by up to 600 percent as well increasing anti-cancer falcarinol assimilation.

Carrots and kale are not difficult garden items. Cilantro can be grown in containers if the soil is deep enough, at least 12 inches, to accommodate its long roots.

Cilantro offers heavy metal detoxification, especially for that basis for a variety of diseases - mercury. Slow speed masticating juicers are better than high speed commercial juicers, and they're less expensive too.

Kale is a hardy plant. The seeds can be sown directly or germinated (seeds sprouted for planting) six weeks before frost arrives. Kale can be juiced with carrots or steamed or made with other greens as part of a salad.

It may not be what you would order to please your palate in a good restaurant, but it is a highly nutritional survival food.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) declared the sweet potato the most nutritious vegetable of all. You can buy them for planting as "slips" or baby plants online, which is highly recommended. (Source below, growing-super-foods)

The not-so-sweet potato is a good choice for home gardening as well. Its starch can be ameliorated by slow boiling or steam. Then its protein content is boosted. (Source below, voices.yahoo)

Potatoes' nutritional value is underrated. Dr. Geoffrey Harris, MD, extolled the virtues of the Russet potato. They contain all 22 amino acids easily digested to form complete proteins, and they are higher in potassium than bananas. (Source below, Dr. Harris)

Irish Catholics in early Ireland were prohibited from owning land, so they had to rent small plots from Irish Protestants to grow potatoes as a staple. Your back yard is a small plot, so... (http://www.naturalnews.com/030359_potatoes_health.html)

It is a hardy plant that's easy to cultivate. Potatoes like to grow in cool weather. If stored for long periods, they should be stored in cool, dark places after they're harvested. Otherwise, they can turn green or sprout too soon and become toxic.

These are just a few suggestions for which easy to grow garden veggies can be the most supportive during food shortages.

It's always wise to research each plant you desire before gardening, especially picking someone's brain who is local. Most nurseries, garden supply sections of large retail outlets, and some large health food stores can be very helpful.
