The term Super Food is an overused marketing classification that seems to work. But is there such a thing as a super food? Dark leafy greens like kale seem to fit but I prefer to think of them as foods that are necessary for optimal human health. Others aspects of this are pure water, exercise, and sleep. These days its what we DON'T eat that may play a huge part in this. But what about Amla?
Studies done the Indian Gooseberry, also known as Amla, suggest it may really be a super food.
Amla can be found in any Indian market or online. It is cheap. Really inexpensive stuff. I bought a years supply, 6 months ago, for under $10.00 because why not?
I generally stir a teaspoon of Amla into my morning oatmeal along with blueberries, dried cranberries or raisins, sometimes canned pumpkin puree, a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla extract. Indian gooseberries are supposed to be sour but I can't even taste the stuff. This one simple breakfast not only tastes great it pumps in more antioxidants than most people on the Standard American Diet get in well over a week.
