I try to consistently eat these foods everyday, if not every other day, for the below benefits and have found them to be available across most continents.
Before I dive in I want to be fully transparent. I’m not a nutrition specialist, nutrition coach, registered or affiliated with any nutrition brand, supp or food.
The below information* is purely my own opinion, which I follow wherever in the world I am living, travelling or TRX’ing.
20 Foods I Consume Daily for Optimum Health & Performance
The links to brands/items are my ideal, most economical and trusted for when I can get them.
If not I look for locally sourced, organic wherever I am in the world.
I try to consistently eat these foods everyday, if not every other day, for the below benefits and have found them to be available across most continents:
Blueberries: Anthocyanidin flavanoids (that give them their colour) promote brain health.
Beetroot: High in iron for energy and known as the blood cleanser for its powerful all-round nutrient properties
Chard or spinach or bok choy: High in potassium to balance out sodium levels in the body. A good balance of sodium to potassium is key for all cellular activity, especially muscle building.
Red pepper: High in Vitamin C.
Garlic: Antiviral and antibacterial.
Avocado: Healthy mono-saturated fats.
RAW Almonds: Alkaline forming nut, full of calcium and magnesium – essential for muscle contraction.
Pumpkin Seeds: The richest nutrient profile of ALL seeds.
Kiwi: Highest fiber (if you eat the skin, which I do) and vitamins C, E, K content of any fruit.
Sauerkraut: Highest natural form of Vitamin C available, also supplies good gut bacteria for digestion.
Dark Chocolate (80% RAW cacao organic): Double the antioxidants of any fruit or vegetable. It can drive up HDL and control LDL from the flavanoids it contains.
Chia Seeds: High in fiber, provides much less bloating through digestion than other seeds can cause.
Fish (salmon, white): High in selenium and zinc, salmon for omega-3. High quality source of amino acids.
Whole egg: Healthy mono-saturated fats, high quality amino acids, fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E, and K in yolk.
Ginger: Helps absorb gas from foods when on a high protein and veg diet.
Apple Cider Vinegar: I use this brand, it’s the first thing I consume in the morning. Balances PH levels and greatly improves the gut’s ability to absorb nutrient throughout the day.
Psyllium Husk: I use this brand, a high amount and good quality, natural fiber to aid digestion.
Himalayan Pink Salt: I use this brand. 1/4 – 1/2 tsp daily for its high mineral content and to aid cellular nutrient up-take.
Cinnamon: 1/2 tsp spread out daily helps balance insulin levels and improve insulin resistance.
MCT Oil: I use this MCT Oil metabolized immediately by the liver and requires no digestion. It is an instant source of energy and brain food.
