WHY SUPERFOODS ?
Superfoods offer the human body an extraordinary supply of antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, nutrients, vitamins, and phytonutrients packed into one food source. Plant-based Superfoods like argan oil, olive oil and dates provide health benefits beyond their nutritional components, often working synergistically to heal the body and bring it back to a state of balance, naturally. There are many foods that are considered Superfoods, but what they all have in common is a miraculous ability to optimize the function of the body’s systems and to promote all over wellness.
These nutrient-dense Superfoods have often been used for thousands of years by traditional healers and medicine people in all ancient civilizations. Our ancestors were keenly aware of the healing power of plants in their natural state, and incorporated these Superfoods into their lives long before the West discovered their powers.
Scientific research is now catching up with tradition, as more and more scientific research and studies are showing that regular consumption of Superfoods can make significant, positive improvements in overall health and well-being. These studies show that the health benefits of eating Superfoods can vastly exceed the health benefits of consuming "normal" healthy food. They really do have the whole package, they are real unprocessed foods that our bodies break down and extract nutrients with precision while filling us up with less calories, sugar and fats compared to the packaged stuff. They are very easy to integrate into many diets (from low-carb, dairy free, to paleo) and are mostly gluten free.
Superfoods can even help cure and prevent degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, combat cancer, and reverse ailments like diabetes, chronic fatigue, and infection.
WHY NATURAL ?
As long as the food “does not contain added color, artificial flavors, or synthetic substances,” governmental food agencies usually do not object to the use of the word “natural” on the label. However, although people may believe that foods labelled as “natural” contain no preservatives or additives, in fact, manufacturers may add substances naturally derived from foods to preserve or enhance flavour. Tazdat Organic Delights does not do that, it keeps its product “whole”.
Processed foods in contrast to wholefoods have been stripped of one or more of their original elements; they are missing valuable nutrients, fibres or water. Natural foods, or wholefoods (fresh whole fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, seeds, nuts, beans and legumes) have been provided for us by nature, and by their very nature, are the perfect foods for our bodies to thrive and survive on. While we can certainly exist on processed foods, we cannot definitely not survive on them.
Man-made synthetic foods which have been highly sugared, salted and processed, are devoid of so many of the nutrients and life-giving substances needed for optimal health. Foods as close to their natural state, or as Mother Nature intended them to be consumed, are, in contrast, rich in health-giving nutrients that sustain and invigorate us.
WHY VEGAN ?
Many people’s resolutions include losing weight, eating better, getting healthier, and doing more to make the world a better place. The good news is that you can accomplish all these goals by switching to a vegan diet—and you’ll enjoy delicious, satisfying meals as well. Here are our top 10 reasons to go vegan:
1 Slim down and become energized: Is shedding some extra pounds first on your list of goals for the new year? Vegans are, on average, up to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters are. And unlike unhealthy fad diets, which leave you feeling tired (and usually don’t keep the pounds off for long), going vegan is the healthy way to keep the excess fat off for good while leaving you with plenty of energy.
2 It’s the best way to help animals: Did you know that every vegan saves more than 100 animals a year? There is simply no easier way to help animals and prevent suffering than by choosing vegan foods over meat, eggs, and dairy products.
3 A healthier, happier you: A vegan diet is great for your health! According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, vegans are less likely to develop heart disease, cancer, diabetes, or high blood pressure than meat-eaters are. Vegans get all the nutrients that they need to be healthy, such as plant protein, fiber, and minerals, without all the nasty stuff in meat that slows you down and makes you sick, such as cholesterol and saturated animal fat.
4 Vegan food is delicious: So you’re worried that if you go vegan, you’ll have to give up hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, and ice cream? You won’t. As the demand for vegan food skyrockets, companies are coming out with more and more delicious meat and dairy-product alternatives that taste like the real thing but are much healthier and don’t hurt any animals. Plus, we have a list of some of our favorite products and thousands of tasty kitchen-tested recipes to help you get started!
5 Meat is gross: Meat is often contaminated with feces, blood, and other bodily fluids—all of which make animal products the top source of food poisoning in the United States. Scientists at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health tested supermarket chicken flesh and found that 96 percent of Tyson chicken was contaminated with campylobacter, a dangerous bacterium that causes 2.4 million cases of food poisoning each year, resulting in diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain, and fever.
6 Help feed the world: Eating meat doesn’t just hurt animals—it hurts people, too. It takes tons of crops and water to raise farmed animals. In fact, it takes up to 13 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of animal flesh! All that plant food could be used much more efficiently if it were fed directly to people. The more people who go vegan, the better able we’ll be to feed the hungry.
7 Save the planet: Meat is not green. Consuming meat is actually one of the worst things that you can do for the Earth. It is wasteful and causes enormous amounts of pollution, and the meat industry is also one of the biggest causes of climate change. Adopting a vegan diet is more effective than switching to a “greener” car in the fight against climate change.
8 All the cool kids are doing it: The list of stars who shun animal flesh is basically a “who’s who” of today’s hottest celebs. Joaquin Phoenix, Natalie Portman, Ariana Grande, Al Gore, Flo Rida, Tobey Maguire, Shania Twain, Alicia Silverstone, Anthony Kiedis, Casey Affleck, Kristen Bell, Alyssa Milano, Common, Joss Stone, Anne Hathaway, and Carrie Underwood are just some of the famous vegans and vegetarians who regularly appear in People magazine.
9 Look sexy and be sexy: Vegans tend to be thinner than meat-eaters and have more energy, which is perfect for late-night romps with your special someone. (Guys: The cholesterol and saturated animal fat found in meat, eggs, and dairy products don’t just clog the arteries to your heart. Over time, they impede blood flow to other vital organs as well.) Plus, what’s sexier than someone who is not only mega-hot but also compassionate?
10 Pigs are smarter than your dog: Although most people are less familiar with pigs, chickens, fish, and cows than they are with dogs and cats, animals used for food are every bit as intelligent and able to suffer as the animals who share our homes are. Pigs can learn to play video games, and chickens are so smart that their intelligence has been compared by scientists to that of monkeys.
