My Super Hero Foods Berries

Kids deserve real, high-quality, whole foods!

We teach families the connection between high-quality whole foods, or SuperHero Foods, and the powers they provide. These super powers include higher energy, more focus, calmer demeanor, stronger bodies – the list goes on! 

When your kids connect SuperHero Foods with how they FEEL in their bodies, they will understand the value of SuperHero foods for themselves. These SuperHero powers will be the reward they receive in exchange for eating higher quality, healthier foods.

With some patience and care, you won’t need to force your kids to eat their veggies when they don’t want to! Over time, they will begin to crave and ask for these foods themselves. 

SuperHero Foods are the ultimate medicine because they not only lead to healthier kids but to healthier, happier families as well.

Do you want your kids to love their veggies?

My SuperHero Foods is a one-of-a-kind book that will stimulate your children’s curiosities about healthy eating. They’ll learn the super powers they’ll gain from eating broccoli, carrots, salmon, almonds, and much more as they join Ethan and Sophie on a fun super power packed day!

Beautifully illustrated with lots of fun details that your kids will love, My SuperHero Foods will serve as a priceless foundation for teaching your kids about healthy eating.

We share the principles, ideas, and activities that we used to teach our six children how to ENJOY and CHOOSE healthy foods. They’re the reasons why our daughter asks for olive oil as a snack and why our son LOVES brussel sprouts!

It isn’t about forcing your kids to eat your vegetables.

Don’t drag your kids along the healthy eating path. Instead, allow them to lead the way!

Frequently asked questions

The calorie myth.
We are biology, not math.
A calorie is not a calorie.  100 calories from a skittles is not the same as 100 calories from grass fed beef.  Our body communicates through messengers, not calories.  So, stop counting calories and focus on nutrient density.  When we eat nutrient dense food, out body will self regulate.

Focus on ingredients, not calories.  Remember what we don’t consume is as important as what we do consume.

Coconut oil has a smoke point of 350 °F so it works well for both cooking and baking. If you roast or saute veggies, use coconut oil for a different flavor profile.  Try a spice like Garam Masala (we like the Frontier Co-Op Brand) to complement the unique coconut flavor. Roast carrots and sweet potatoes in coconut oil with a touch of cinnamon and some salt – it’s delicious!

When baking, substitute coconut oil for vegetable oil or butter. Coconut oil has more nutrients than vegetable oil and can be a great alternative to anyone who is sensitive to dairy. If you want to cash in on the coconut flavor, add coconut flakes or chips to your baked goods too!

Remember that fast food is actually not very cheap! With some thoughtful preparation, you can use the best ingredients at the same or even reduced cost to prepare SuperHero meals. 

Also, when considering the cost of whole SuperHero foods, remember that the secondary costs of future doctor visits are even more expensive.

Third, feeding your children SuperHero foods that help them excel and thrive as they grow is priceless.

We believe that every BODY is different. Some adults thrive on a keto diet and others do best eating vegan. Others have the most energy and cure many ailments while eating like a carnivore.  

What foods work well is very specific to the individual. Through trial and error, you can personalize your diet to what works best for you via Personalized Nutrition. But at the core of every diet, the theme is common: WHOLE, REAL foods. The same applies to children.  

We believe that WHOLE FOODS – foods that have been processed or refined as LITTLE as possible and are FREE from additives or other artificial substances – help children thrive!  The SuperHero foods we choose are foods that are WHOLE and packed with lots of nutrition.

There are many SuperHero foods we can add to our list. We’d love to know which new foods you’d like to see on our list!

And while you and your children may not be able to eat all of these foods because of your dietary restrictions or choices, we believe that increasing awareness about eating more of the Superhero Foods that are the best for your values will get you and your family one step closer to our mission!

We notice a big difference!  On special occasions, we make french toast or pancakes for breakfast with the best ingredients possible. But we like to save these sugar-filled breakfasts for weekends because when our kids start their day with sugar and heavy carbs, they crash about two hours later.  

When they eat sugary foods, we notice that they are more emotional and that they are not able to concentrate as well. In general, the less sugar they eat, the more calm and focused they are!

The general recommendation is about 25 grams of sugar per day (1 teaspoon equals about 4 grams). This is really easy to exceed when you realize that an 8 oz glass of 100% orange juice has 21 grams of sugar! 

If you can keep your sugar consumption to less than 50 grams per day, you will be far ahead of the pack. Sugar and sugar alternatives are added to almost everything and the labels are deceptive. We have so much to say about sugar, so stay tuned!

We believe that fresh fruit is the best sugar alternative. Then dried fruit with no added sugar.

But we can’t add fruit to everything, so we opt for honey and maple syrup if fruit doesn’t work.

If we are baking and the recipe calls for sugar, our general rule of thumb is: Cut the amount of sugar in half and then substitute it for honey or maple syrup. For example, if the recipe calls for one cup of sugar, we use a half-cup of maple syrup instead. 

If we are making whipped cream, we substitute maple syrup for sugar.  If we want to sweeten plain full fat yogurt, we drizzle some raw honey on top or add some berries. If we want to sweeten a smoothie, we throw in a date. The combinations are endless!

No! They cause weight gain and other metabolic disturbances. All artificial sweeteners disrupt the microbiome. There is no free lunch! Use natural sweeteners such as maple syrup or honey. Even cane sugar is better than artificial sweeteners.
