Growing up, my mom was a pill-pusher. Of vitamins. Every night after supper, I would be forced to take a handful of different pills, from Vitamin B to Zinc. So, of course, as an adult, it's a struggle for me to take even a multi-vitamin. Given the chance to try nutritionally dense superfoods like Spirulina, Nutritional Yeast, and Vitamin C powder from Sari Foods, I accepted quickly, because I know I don't get all the nutrition I need - and there are no pills or synthetic chemicals involved in these superfoods!
"Sari" means "essence" in Indonesian, and Sari Foods promote using the 'essence of food' - bringing ancient, nutrient-dense superfoods into the modern diet. All their products are made from real food - no synthetic, laboratory-made vitamins involved.
I remember the first time I was introduced to Spirulina. My husband and I were staying at a B&B in St. Augustine, and the owner had made these weirdly green muffins for breakfast, along with granola and fresh fruit. I wasn't aware of any green food that would make a good muffin, so I asked him about them, and he talked about how nutritionally excellent Spirulina was.
I tried a muffin, and I liked it. We still go back to the B&B on occasion, and I always ask for the muffins!
Amazon, where it currently sells for $23.95.
Unlike the spirulina, I had never heard of Nutritional Yeast before, but it was the easiest to incorporate into my food, because it tastes like one of my favorite foods - cheese!
For having an unpalatable name, they are one of the tastiest and easiest-to-use supplements I've ever tried. I'd put this on anything I'd think to put cheese on - eggs, potatoes, rice, pasta, vegetables, etc.
Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast is available from Amazon, and currently retails for $12.95.
The last 'superfood' I tried was Vitamin C fro Acerola Cherries. We've all heard about the amazing properties of Vitamin C, both in our diets and in our skincare. It's supposed to boost our immune system, and the antioxidants promote cell recovery and regeneration.
Vitamin C is available at Amazon, and currently retails for $29.95.
All of these came with e-recipe books, and for those who like to cook, there are so many options available to incorporate them into recipes. I found it really easy to incorporate these supplements into the foods I was already eating, making them even better for me!
For more information, or to purchase, you can find Sari Foods on their webpage, Facebook, and Twitter. They also sell their products on Amazon.
