Freaky Foods: Sunchokes, Maitake Mushrooms, and Turmeric

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!

I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting foods, ideas and recipes to share with you. In today’s Motivational Monday I want to introduce you to three foods that you may not be familiar with, that are loaded in health promoting properties, making them amazing for your health!

Food is the foundation of your health. If you eat well, staying mindful of including plenty of vegetables, fruits, beans and quality fats and proteins, your body and brain will be properly nourished, helping you thrive in all areas of your life. Eating the wrong foods can have deleterious effects on your system, weakening you and causing disease.

But some foods are super foods and should be considered as a means to help bring your health to the next level. These foods may have cancer fighting or detoxification properties. They may have robust antioxidant potential and anti-inflammatory benefits. You want to include these foods in your diet whenever possible and today I have three more that you can add to your repertoire.

In today’s video I will show you a medicinal mushroom that has been known to fight and prevent cancer. I’ll also introduce you to a funny looking tuber that can help you create beneficial bacteria in the large intestine, improving gastrointestinal health. Lastly I will show you a spice that you have definitely heard of but perhaps have not seen, that can fight cancer and protect you from heart disease and cognitive decline.

Once you’ve watched the video, I want to hear from you! Have you tried any of these food in your diet? If so, how did you prepare them? What did you think of the flavor? And are they now a staple in your diet? Let me know in the comments below.

As always, wishing you much health and happiness! Have a great week!
