Your Healthy Nutritional Guide to Tropical Superfoods and Spices.

Tropical Superfoods, your healthy nutritional guide, is mostly an information site about the wonderful freshly grown foods of Far North Queensland, where we live.

The idea of sourcing delicious and healthy tropical fruit and nuts, rainforest foods and spices for you to enjoy, slowly developed as we experimented with using some of the more unusual fruits, seeds and rhizomes of the region.

Having lived in Cairns and Port Douglas for the past twenty years, we have had ample opportunity to enjoy freshly picked produce from organic farms and plantations on the fertile Atherton Tablelands or the lush coastal strip from Daintree to Mission Beach and the mountains beyond.

Enjoy tropical superfoods, the health benefits of spices, chia seeds and various rainforest foods as you explore new taste sensations from the Australian tropics.

Coconut oil benefits, chia seeds, tropical nuts...

But now our research has taken us a step further as we find out more about, for example, coconut oil benefits, the nutritional value of chia seeds, health benefits of nuts (Australian nuts?) and even how to choose foods for weight loss!

The information on this site is general only and should never replace the advice of your health professional. We advocate a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and a variety of natural foods, particularly fresh fruit, nuts and vegetables in season along with selected tropical spices. Enjoy the adventure!

We would be delighted to hear from you about the tropical superfoods and spices that you would like us to find for you – Australian dukkah? grated turmeric root? coconut cookies? curry spices? coffee and tea from the mountains? North Queensland chocolate?

Please contact us with your queries, suggestions and comments.
