Health and Diet
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food," – as early as 400 years ago, Hippocrates knew that we are what we eat. He discovered that Mother Nature is the best doctor. She offers products that are naturally rich in complete protein, healthy fats, nutritious carbohydrates and a full range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes that regulate all processes in the human body and ensure its proper functioning, namely, health.
The concept of a healthy diet, however, is often mistakenly associated with the necessity of fasting, giving up favorite products and eating only tasteless meals with the addition of lettuce in huge quantities. Fortunately, it is only a myth built by big 'junk' food companies that often feed us mixtures of chemicals. Will the miserable toast and coffee for breakfast, a sweet roll swallowed and washed with a carbonated beverage for lunch, a sticky baton full of fat and sugar for tea and fried chicken with a portion of fries for dinner provide us with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants to maintain proper metabolism? Absolutely not!
A wealth of flavors and scents offered us by Mother Nature is immense. She is the greatest treasure trove of nutrients. Everyone knows cocoa, but not everyone knows that it contains all the ingredients to ensure proper operation of each cell. It is the best source of magnesium, chromium, manganese, copper, zinc, iron, vitamin C and a huge amount of antioxidants.
There is a reason why millet has been hailed as the queen. Not only it warms the body, but it is easy to digest, contains many B-Vitamins, lecithin, Vitamin E, antioxidants and magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and iron. Spirulina, a less-known cyanosis, was used as a source of nutrients in ancient times. It is rich in B-group Vitamins. It consists of 70% protein. It contains all the essential amino acids, vitamin E, phycocyanins, iron, magnesium, and chlorophyll. It also exhibits high nutritional properties in cosmetics. Noteworthy too, are: wild rose, honey and pollen, Spanish sage, quinoa, amaranth, chlorella, buckwheat, chestnuts, kale, beets, baobab ... And this is only the beginning of the list. A healthy diet primarily involves the variety, moderation, balance and discovering new flavors. It also means having meals in the company of loved ones and - most importantly - the pleasure of eating.
