Nutri Tips

 We have always seen healthy eating as a "diet", when the reality is that eating healthy is essential to help reduce the likelihood of getting disease while maintaining good health. To achieve this, we must consume plant-based foods.
 Fruits and vegetables, in addition to being a source of vitamins and minerals, are the main source of antioxidants. As the name says, antioxidants prevent oxidation responsible for producing cellular debris called free radicals, preventing cellular damage at the same time.

 In simpler terms, fruits and vegetables keep our body's cells young, help us avoid wrinkles and maintain a youthful appearance while avoiding inflammation and serious diseases such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes, as well as high levels of triglycerides and cholesterol, among other illnesses. In addition, plant foods are good sources of fiber, which are crucial for the proper functioning of the intestinal tract, as they avoid constipation and delay the absorption of glucose in the blood. This is why they should not be missing in your diet.
 To eat a healthy diet, it is vital to include foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts to our daily routine. It is also important to avoid saturated fats, simple carbohydrates, processed flours, carbonated soft drinks, among others. This does not necessarily mean having to stop eating what we like, but rather starting with small changes. We can substitute sugars for agave, maple, honey or dates. We can also trade saturated fats for healthy fats such as avocado, olive oil, nuts, and seeds. Similarly, we can exchange processed flours for whole meal, oatmeal, and pulse flours, cauliflower dough, among other replacements.
 Contrary to popular belief, frozen fruits and vegetables are picked and packed at their maximum ripening point, which means that they are equally or even more nutritious than fresh produce, since they are at their highest level of vitamin and minerals content. This allows us to get the most out of food and enjoy a greater number of benefits for our health, provided they don't contain preservatives or added sugars.
 This type of product gives us the ease of simply opening, liquefying and serving. This way we manage to incorporate smoothies as a rich healthy 'snack' and even as a quick breakfast on those days when we are in a hurry.

 Beyond that, they also serve as post-workout meals, since they aid in recovery after exercise, and provide us with energy and protein necessary to burn fat and build muscle mass. Consider all these advantages without worrying whether the fruits and vegetables have gone bad by the time we need them.
 The World Health Organization recommends 5-7 cups of vegetables and fruits daily and there isn’t a more convenient way to follow their advice than adding products such as 'Fruit & Veggie Blenders' to our routine and incorporating recipes that help us enjoy everything we like in a healthier way.
