The Pillars of Excellence names 11 Super Foods of 2007
Dr. John P. DeMann, Performance Coach, Peak Performance Research, PPR
Chances are high that every day we are bombarded by at least 3000 ads a day.
Many of these are ads from food manufacturers telling us why we should buy their product. Open up any magazine and there are 50 high-color, glamorous ads written by the best marketing minds on the planet telling us why we need to spend our money on their latest nutritional invention.
There really are some great products out there. But keep in mind that most of these contain fillers to extend shelf life and make them taste better. Not necessarily heightening our health or increasing daily performance.
The answer may be to live as one of the great Greek philosophers once said, “All things in moderation.” Especially when it comes to eating processed foods.
So here they are. Some of the basics of good nutrition, from which the majority of your calories should probably come:
11 Super FOODS
Oranges - rich in vitamin C, folic acid, and fiber
Whole-grain bread - It’s higher in fiber and about a dozen more vitamins and minerals than enriched white bread or “wheat” bread (if the first ingredient is NOT whole wheat, don’t be fooled – it’s not whole wheat bread)
Cantaloupe - A quarter of a delicious melon supplies almost as much vitamin A and C as most people need in an entire day. (Be sure to wash the outside of the cantaloupe, before you cut into it.)
Broccoli – Contains tons of vitamin C, carotenoids, and folic acid
Sweet potatoes - A little-known nutritional powerhouse - one of the most nutritious vegetables you can eat. They’re loaded with carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. (Regular white potatoes are not in the same class as sweet potatoes)
Watermelon – Excellent source of vitamin C and carotenoids
Beans – Inexpensive, low in fat, and rich in protein, iron, folic acid, and fiber
Salmon or other fatty fish – The omega-3 fats are abundant in fish, especially fatty fish like salmon, sardines, and rainbow trout. Be sure to eat wild, not farm-raised.
Spinach and Kale – Loaded with vitamin C, carotenoids, calcium, and fiber
Garlic – This is such a great food that it’s in a class of its own. Garlic is full of organic sulfur compounds and even powerful antioxidants. Don’t over do it, but try to have some fresh garlic 1 or 2 times per week.
Water – One of the best things to do for your brain and body is simply have a fresh, clean glass of water.
Instead of reaching for a potential diabetes-causing, medical-industry supportive candy bar, soda, or other high-calorie, poor nutrition, highly-processed, performance-defying product … reach for one of the above nutrition-packed, performance-enhancing super foods.
Your body just might thank you for it one day.
For more information on eating to enhance performance The Pillars of Excellence has several programs that meet the needs of all activity levels, from the average everyday employee to the super athlete trying to enhance their game.

John has visited many schools, empowering countless children! He has fantastic success with people suffering from dyslexia and also teaches people to learn how to learn, how to find their inner power and how to live a life with Purpose & Focus!
He will be visiting schools in Britain to show how to help a child go from, for example, a seemingly hopeless mischief maker, who cannot concentrate, who is ‘going nowhere’ - to an A grade student! And it’s not a long winded ‘process’ that takes weeks or months! It’s done and dusted in less than a day!
These teachings are, unfortunately - and quite CLEARLY, not taught in schools! This is why he is so committed to changing the way that we are being ‘taught’!
In the near future, The Pillars Family will be sponsoring youngsters through university and setting up weekend meetings where people can come together to build their own mastermind groups to encourage each other to stick with their development as well as to get extra coaching.
He has also pioneered a program that shows people how to improve their memory to a fantastic level very quickly. Can you imagine what this can do for children in schools?! Let alone the society at large!
He also happens to be introducing a revolutionary new program & concept that will flip the medical profession right on its head!
Anyone who acts on the teachings in his book ‘The Pillars of Excellence’ and seminar (Soteria) is going to go through the roof in regards to excellence in ALL areas of their life!
