We are the "SE Couple", a wife and husband duo and founders of this website and corresponding YouTube channel, here to inspire healthy eating through various dietary alternatives.
Superfood Evolution is the place where we share our life-long passion for using the foods we eat and drink as our nutritive, medicinal and even spiritual allies.
Both born and raised near San Francisco, California circa the mid-1970s, we’ve let’s say been a part of the "health food" scene for a very long time, experiencing first-hand the beginnings of many types of diets, particularly vegetarian and vegan plant-based options.
As many stories go, our collective interest in diet and nutrition arose out of a myriad of childhood sicknesses, chronic allergies and visits to the doctor’s office. What came out of the dark side of illness however was a light at the end of the tunnel and our own personal understanding that preventive self-maintenance can often help support the body’s own self-healing potential.
Although "diet is not everything", we feel it can be the key to a long-term healthcare approach that might give YOU the upper hand towards greater well-being during the course of your lifetime.
Our mission is a simple one... To provide high-quality well-researched informative content! We aim to be as accurate as possible NOT just a parrot of the often same repeated info on any one given subject matter.
Here we focus mostly (but not exclusively) on plant-based options, covering a broad range to pick and choose from depending on your interests or specific nutrition objectives.
We offer scientific reviews, educated experience and occasional DIY recipes with the main goal being to empower You to ultimately help Yourself evolve on your own unique path to a healthier life. We believe that learning more about foods, where they come from, their specific nutraceutical attributes as well as historical human uses can help us all to make more informed choices.
We encourage supporting organic, non-GMO and/or sustainably harvested foods and companies that sell these higher quality products, not only for individual health but also for the health of this beautiful planet we call home.
And, of course, we know firsthand that there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of growing your own herbs and superfoods whenever possible. (Many rare seeds and starter plants can be purchased here.)
Our quests have led us to seek education and certifications in the field of herbal medicine and holistic nutrition via seminars, workshops, herbal apprenticeships and diet/lifestyle counseling programs.
Collectively, we have received degrees in Holistic Diet and Lifestyle Counseling with an emphasis on Chinese and Ayurvedic approaches. Our herbal certifications are from Evergreen School of Integrative Herbology (Western, Chinese, Ayurvedic herbalism), Dry Creek Herb Farm (Western herbalism and wild foods/herbs) and Rosemary Gladstar's Sage Mountain Herbal Studies Program.
Other education and training includes:
Our other shared special interests include spending time in the great outdoors, hiking, yoga, trail running, wild food foraging and travel.
