Superfood feature

September 19, 2009

For today’s (Sept 19) issue of Göteborgs-Posten’s weekend supplement “Två dagar” I have written a 6 page feature story about superfood. Göteborgs-Posten is the second largest morning paper in the country reaching 630 000 readers. In the story Raw Food guru David Wolfe gives his definition of superfood and refers to ancient civilizations where superfoods were used for their medical properties. Experts on nutrition give their opinions about nutritional deficiencies and oxidative stress. Raw food chef Erica Palmcrantz gives her views on common Swedish superfoods with advice on how we easily can optimize our nutrition intake. There are a few examples of superfoods: goji berries, cacao, bee pollen, spirulina, chia seeds, barley grass juice, acai berries and maca root. There is also a short piece about my superfood project for Marathon des Sables.

      Kul att få visa upp ett mer långsiktigt sätt att äta på – något fler borde fundera över kan man tycka.

    Jag håller med. Eftersom man ändå äter så mycket som man gör, så borde fler inse hur de genom små förändringar kan göra kosten så mycket bättre. Strö över lite pollen där, sprinkla med rå kakao där, byt till manukahonung i teet, pimpa juicen med acai & spirulina osv. Många bäckar små är ett tänk som funkar bra i super foods-djungeln. 🙂

      Yeah, there are many amazing things still to be discovered. Research about antioxidants for example is still young. It’s interesting to learn more about natural health, finding a lifestyle where you can be healthy and strong with the help of superfoods.
