Superfood Salad Fresh Start Detox

Delicious Detox Recipes

 

The owners of Your Super offer their suggestions for a food-based delicious detox.

Michael: Growing up as an athlete, and playing tennis at the professional level, I felt invincible! That changed when I was diagnosed with cancer at age 24. While recovering and trying to rebuild my immune system, I learned how important it is to fuel your body with a whole food diet.

My Your Super co-founder Kristel, would share her homemade mixes of superfood powders. While taking them, I felt more energized, happier, and increasingly more aware. The more I researched, the more shocked I became to learn of my athletic diet’s effect on the body, and how these nutrient-rich superfoods had been used by indigenous cultures for thousands of years. Why didn’t more people know about this? I made it my personal mission to educate and inspire people to fuel their body with the best natural whole foods. Good nutrition and information should be available for everybody!

Kristel: I knew how to mix up superfoods for Michael, because I had done it with my mom and aunt who are orthomolecular nutritionists. My Mom had been through cancer years prior. I thought, “Well if my mom had it, and Michael had it, I better do everything I can not to get it.” I became a vegan, using these superfoods as the most nutrient-dense part of my diet. This change in lifestyle helped to relieve my eczema (a lifelong struggle) and decrease inflammation in my body. I was inspired to become a certified health coach, studying with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Both: Since starting this program for our family, friends, clients and customers three years ago we have heard SO many success stories and hope to hear the same from you!

 

Fresh Start Breakfast

While making mixes for Michael’s detox, I knew it was important to use power-plants like organic wheatgrass, barley grass, moringa, and baobob fruit, spirulina, and chlorella which contain important micronutrients such as vitamins A, C, B1-7, B9, B12, E, K, calcium, potassium and iron. All of these greens additionally contain chlorophyll, which cleans the blood and draws materials out of your body, like heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides and environmental toxins. These foods increase oxygen content in your body and promote digestive health.

When becoming vegan, both Michael and I wanted to take in the cleanest available ingredients. We came to love a mix of organic pea protein, hemp protein, moringa, spirulina, and alfalfa. This plant protein mix contains 62% protein, 20 essential amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamins A, B9, B12, C, and iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium. The blends have the perfect combination of macro- and micronutrients, which aid in detoxification and digestion, support repair of the body tissue and the nervous system, and protect cells from oxidative stress.

These blends are now available as Your Super’s Super Green + Skinny Protein
