(NaturalNews) If you have to go on the road to visit friends or relatives, or a business trip of some sort, it would be wise to bring along some superfoods to maintain the nutritional level you have at home.
The food you'll get while visiting good friends or nice relatives or staying at decent accommodations on the road will probably be lacking nutritionally. That's why carrying ample amounts of superfoods that take very little space would be helpful.
You would then be able to maintain a high level of nutrient input while avoiding junk food as much as possible.
A superfood traveling kitChlorella
is as good as it gets for all around nutrition and compactness. It is an extremely nutrient dense food. So nutrient dense while requiring so little space to produce that it was considered as a solution for world hunger toward the end of and shortly after WW II.
It is a billion-year-old single cell algae that is produced in shallow water with abundant sunlight. The process of photosynthesis produces the algae that is 50 percent protein, more protein per unit than any other plant. It is also high in vitamins, minerals, especially magnesium, chlorophyll, iodine, and healthy fats.
Chlorella binds with mercury and other heavy metals to safely expel or chelate them from the body.
Chlorella's digestive issues have been solved with techniques of crushing their strong cell walls while maintaining its integrity for boosting the immune system, repairing cellular damage, detoxing, and protecting against disease.
It can be purchased as tiny tablets, usually 200 to 250 mg per tab. Taking 10 (or more) with water provides a ton of protective nutrition.Goji berries
are also quite compact and can be pleasurably nibbled anytime, anywhere. They are sold as dried fruit and resemble red raisins. But it takes considerably fewer Goji berries than raisins for obtaining superfood nutritional benefits and boosting energy.
Goji berries improve circulation, boost immunity, protect the liver, and provide some serious antioxidant protection. Goji berry ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity), the standard measurement of antioxidant protection, is higher than blueberries.
They contain a good deal of vitamin C, potassium, calcium, iron, healthy fats, and protein. Cancer patients consuming goji berries
in China managed to do better with fewer side effects while being treated with conventional allopathic (poison) treatments.Cacao
is the raw form of unprocessed, unadulterated chocolate provided by the beans of rain forest cacao
trees. The closer to the bean, the more powerful it's antioxidant protection. Cacao has the highest ORAC rating of all foods by far.
The closest you can get to the actual bean is with cacao powder or nibs. Nibs are handier for traveling. They can be sprinkled onto pancakes, cereals, and other foods, or mixed with goji berries and raw nuts.
Cacao and even 70 percent cacao dark chocolate has been allowed to promote its proven cardiovascular benefits
in Europe by the European Food Safety Authority
(EFSA), the less corrupt version of America's FDA.Hemp seeds
that have been hulled can be eaten like goji berries, anytime, anywhere. Not to worry, Canada and other nations are allowed to grow industrial hemp without THC, the active cannabis ingredient that is so unreasonably forbidden almost everywhere.
So you can buy hemp seeds online or at almost any decent health food
store. They are not necessarily delicious, but reasonably tasty. They provide the perfect balance of abundant omega-6, omega-3 and omega-9 essential fatty acids in one food.
Balanced essential fatty acids are the key to promoting cardiovascular health and curbing all internal inflammation. Hemp also provides extremely bio-available complete proteins in abundance. Some consider hemp the most complete single food on the planet.Sources for this article include:http://www.squidoo.com/what-is-chlorella-good-forhttp://www.thekitchn.comhttp://www.ratical.org/renewables/hempseed1.html
