I have started working on an updated version of Naked Nutrition (hopefully to be released in 2-3 months). In this edition I will introduce the Naked Nutrition Powerfoods.
This is a group of killer foods that I have been researching and experimenting with for the upcoming release of a cookbook (The Powerfoods Cookbook). As you know Naked Nutrition centers on eating top quality nutritious foods.
These 30 Foods (if not all then most) should be the center pieces of your nutrition as they are loaded with vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, essential fatty acids, fiber, essential amino acids, and all kinds of other good stuff that we don’t fully understand (we just know it is good for you).
I wanted to share with you a ‘pre-release’ version of the Powerfoods so that you can supercharge your nutrition – hopefully you’re eating lots of these already. They are chunked into 5 groups: Starches (faster acting carbs), Fruits & Vegetables (and non starch carbohydrates), Proteins, Fats, and the Powerfood Outsiders (these don’t really fit into any of the previous categories but that doesn’t take away from their nutritional power)
Fruits & Vegetables
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Flaxseed/flaxseed oil
- Lean Poultry
- Lean red meat
- Omega-3 Eggs
- Cottage Cheese (with Live Cultures)
- Milk Protein Powder Blend
Power Foods Outsiders
- Green Tea
- Hot peppers
If you have some cool ways that you prepare and use in your own diet post it below so we all can benefit.
