    Queens Quinoa Grain – 250 grams

    Price : 300

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.

    Nowadays, maintaining a balance with our busy lifestyles can be quite challenging. The quality of foods, a variety of diets and supplements can be overwhelming.

    What we need first and foremost is a balanced diet that is more alkaline than acidic. That way our organs will function properly, and our skeletal health will remain strong.

    Nature has provided us with a humble little seed, the quinoa, which is a powerhouse of nutrients. Queens Quinoa- Grain & Flour is the first naturally grown grain that can help us to maintain an excellent health.

  • ThisHonestFood

    Love this list! Can I sneak in my own? I launched This Honest Food in December — I’m a holistic nutrition educator and certified executive chef, all about clean eating and helping those with autoimmune disease transform their health through food and cooking :-)

    • Checked it out – great site Dawn!

      • ThisHonestFood

        Thank you so much, appreciate it :-)

  • I love this list! Could I add my own? Nothing wrong with some self-advertising, right? 😉

  • A healthy diet plan and also lifestyle are your ideal weapons to eliminate cardiovascular disease

  • Some of them I agree with. Others… not so much. It seems like a mash to include Fat Free Vegan alongside Marks Daily Apple. Two totally different sides of the healthy spectrum.
    One focuses on whole plant foods and the other focuses on… meat. One has legitimate, peer-reviewed scientific backing and the other is dripping with pseudo science. One is sustainable and the other has fad written all over it.
    It’s great that some people care what they put in their mouth. But there’s more to health than that. Healthy should be backed by science.
    Check out my website if you’d like to explore a healthy, sustainable and reputable healthy lifestyle.

    • Hey Sara,
