In a world ruled by fast food and bad habits, staying healthy is one of the most important things we can do today. And the secret to doing that besides exercise is getting the right nutrients into our systems. Not getting the right nutrients causes deficiencies in our body which can lead to even bigger problems down the line. With the rise of illnesses, obesity and other diseases, it's clear that the intake of nutritious and healthy food is essential to living right.
Thankfully, doing that is easier these days, thanks in part to brands like The Healthy Grocery.

We speak to The Healthy Grocery founder, Anton Sanvicente to learn more on how it all started, Superfoods he can't live without, and how to stay fit.
Could you tell us a little bit about your background?
I was formally trained in the hospitality industry and I did some work before with wine. I fell in love with the vine and spent a lot of time diving deep into it but at some point I could not stand a glass of alcohol anymore. I had a total shift of perspective, dropped out of the rat race, and I decided to focus my energy on learning how to make the human body perform extreme things. I found that the human body is extremely sensitive to input. Whether it be the food you eat, the thoughts you have, the place you are in, or the life you decide to live. It all comes together.
How did the idea of creating the healthy grocery come about?
I was on a plane on the way to the deep jungle in Mindanao and I was chugging down a bottle of Chia Seeds mixed with Goji and I offered my buddy who came on the trip with me. "Want some?". "What the heck is that stuff?". "Oh, these are Superfoods!".
He tried them out and he loved them and immediately felt great. Jokingly, he says that it was my secret to my energy. I laugh and he asks me, "Why don't you turn this into a business? Nobody is doing this now and you've always been eating these funky foods!".
That is the exact moment that the concept for the company started!
What are your favorite products?
That's incredibly hard to answer because I can't live without them all! I have them all regularly but I choose different ones everyday depending on my activities.
There are some Superfoods that I take daily and these never disappear from my Superfood pantry. Spirulina, Maca, Cacao, Goji, Acai/Camu, Adlay, and Quinoa.
Which of your products do you think is something everyone should be taking?
Those that I mentioned which are my favorites. I like them because cover a very wide range of nutritional needs and you really do feel a big difference in your energy.
