Which Foods Maximise Nutrition While Minimising Calories?

In our pursuit of health and vitality, the choices we make about what we put into our bodies matter immensely. As advocates for superfood juices, we understand the significance of nourishing our bodies with nutrient-rich foods that complement our favourite beverages.

Nutrient density refers to the amount of essential nutrients packed into a food relative to its calorie content. In simple terms, it's all about getting the most bang for your buck when it comes to nutrition. Think of it as maximising the nutritional value of every bite you take.

As our founder Dr. Britt Cordi, PhD say’s

"Our superfood juices are the building blocks to a balanced diet. Fine-tuning your nutrition - and making sensible, sustainable food choices - can have a lasting effect."

Join us on a journey to explore the diverse world of nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods and discover how they can enhance your wellness journey.

There are 7 major groups of nutrients, let’s explore these further. 

Carbohydrates: Despite their sometimes-negative reputation, carbohydrates are essential for providing energy and maintaining overall health. Opt for healthy sources like whole grains, fruits, root vegetables, and legumes to support weight control and promote fullness with fewer calories. 

Proteins: Critical for tissue repair and strength, proteins are found in a variety of foods such as meat, fish, eggs, dairy, and plant-based sources like beans and wheatgrass juice. Yes, you read that right! Our organic wheatgrass juice contains an impressive array of amino acids, the building blocks for protein contributing to its status as a whole food powerhouse.

Fats: Healthy fats play a crucial role in metabolism, mood regulation, and nutrient absorption. Incorporate sources like avocados, nuts, and fatty fish into your diet to support overall well-being. 

Vitamins: Essential for various metabolic processes, vitamins are abundant in fruits, vegetables, and superfood juices. For example ,our wheatgrass juice boasts an impressive line-up of vitamins, including 50% of the RDA for vitamin A, 95.7% for vitamin B, 1600% for vitamin B12, and 145% for vitamin E.

Minerals: From building strong bones to regulating body fluids, minerals are vital for numerous bodily functions. Our organic wheatgrass juice is rich in 92 out of the 102 minerals our bodies need, making it a potent addition to your diet.

Dietary Fibre: Crucial for digestive health and blood sugar regulation, dietary fibre is abundant in leafy greens and whole grains. Incorporating these foods into your diet can promote gastrointestinal health and prevent constipation.

Water: Often overlooked but essential for overall health, water is vital for cellular function, hydration, and energy levels. Ensure you stay adequately hydrated to support optimal bodily functions and prevent dehydration-related issues.
