Food has been used for centuries and passed down through ancient wisdom as a tool to heal our mind, body and soul. The roots of healing through plants and foods grown from our earth can be seen in cultures throughout the world: Native American, The Maori, Middle and Near East, the depths of the Peruvian Amazon, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic medicine and many more cultures where the stories are still yet to be told and documented.
With globalization and the increasing access to such a wide database of knowledge, we are relearning the ways of our ancestors: herbs, berries, seeds, flowers, roots, leaves, fruits, and plants have long been revered as an abundant addition to our lifestyles. Thanks to increased access to imports of these goods into Western Culture, we are able to discover superfoods we have never heard of before!
Matcha lattes, bee pollen, spirulina smoothie bowls, blue algae, mushroom coffee, chia seed, flax seed, every type of seed! There is no shortage of superfoods popping up on the market and their uses seem a bit difficult to understand – not to mention their price tag might set you back a pretty penny. Enter Rosehive Superfoods Box: A superfood discovery box that allows you to try new brands and superfoods before committing to buying them!
Of course there are the fads, and the marketing that goes into them but the true essence of a superfood is not meant to replace a balanced diet but to enhance a nutritional and culinary experience. It is becoming less of a secret that “you are what you eat” is real. Doctors are prescribing nutritional components to healing profiles, people are targeting just the right balance for themselves, and indeed, the push for local produce is as strong as it has ever been.
