Domestic Superfoods: Healthy and cheap foods on your doorstep

Everyone talks about superfoods: Foods with allegedly especially positive health effects. They are rich in vitamins, proteins and nutrients. Especially exotic foods like chia seeds, acai berries, avocado and pomegranate are known as superfoods. But there are also superfoods that are not grown somewhere at the other end of the world and transported an infinite amount of miles: Domestic superfoods on your doorstep!

#1: Domestic Superfoods: „Wild fruits“ instead of exotic fruits

Basically, superfoods are completely normal foods you can buy at your supermarket. The special nature of superfoods are the contained secondary plant substances which care for your fitness, power and healing. The hype about superfoods from overseas is big, but it’s much more important to focus on the superpowers of our domestic superfoods. Blueberries, black currants and elderberries contain comparable nutrients to acai berries or goji berries. The deep red color of the domestic berries contains the so-called antioxidants which slow down the aging process of the plant cells as well as the human cells.
Apples are a good alternative for goji berries, when you choose the right type. „Old“ apple types like Belle de Boskoop or Cox Orange act antioxidative, are rich in vitamin A and include more polyphenols than newer apple types.

#2: Domestic Superfoods: Linseeds instead of chia seeds

They are significantly cheaper, but as healthy as the famous chia seeds from South America: Linseeds. They contain many important dietary fibres and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Walnuts are also a good substitute for chia seeds – they’re able to lower the cholesterol level and reduce the risk of cancer through antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. Nettle seeds are very valuable as well. They comprise a lot of proteins and plenty of minerals.



#3: Domestic Superfoods: Broccoli instead of wheatgrass

A good alternative for wheatgrass are green vegetables like broccoli. Both are rich in chlorophyll, the dye plants owe its green colour to. Chlorophyll binds toxic substances which result from metabolic processes and guides them from the body. Furthermore, it has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Green vegetables are rich at vitamin C and magnesium, in general. Finally, broccoli and green cabbage are worth to be highlighted as domestic and cheap superfood alternatives.
Further domestic superfood-vegetables are horseradish, parsnips and Jerusalem artichokes.



With this in mind, we wish you lots of fun at your next grocery shopping trip, exploring the domestic power plants.  While you’re doing something for your conscience and your wallet, at the same time your health will be pleased!
