Do you feel that warmth on your skin lately?

Today we want to share with you the must foods for this summer so that you stay hydrated and healthy throughout the summer. Greenviter summer has finally arrived to fill us with happiness and a lot of vitamin D. The beach, the tan, the sunsets, the terraceo and all the things that we love we can finally enjoy 100% but we must not forget good nutrition when enjoying the pleasures of life with our healthy summer foods.

We make it easy! 😉

When we have tanned skin, there is no doubt that we look spectacular with luminous and radiant skin. But what if I told you, greenviter, that if we take care of our diet in the same way that we protect ourselves from the sun, we can achieve radiant skin, stay hydrated in the heat and, just like the sun, full of vitamin D (and other good vitamins, of course).


SPINACH

Spinach has a high amount of beta-carotene and water with 91%. Beta carotene makes spinach a “must” when wanting to keep our tan spectacular. In addition to maintaining your tan, it goes hand in hand with keeping your diet healthy since spinach provides us with a large amount of vitamin A, C, E, K, B vitamins and folic acid.
Tuna or Salmon Poke
Free Range Chicken Caesar Salad

AVOCADO

Avocado is rich in fats that are good for our health and its high content of Omega 3 fatty acids help us maintain and strengthen the natural protective barrier of our skin to achieve a smooth, soft and youthful complexion. As if that were not enough, this fruit contains antioxidants such as vitamins C, A and E to nourish us with more good things.

SALMON

Blue fish, such as salmon, of all sources of vitamin D is one of the best, this vitamin has inflammatory properties and is required for the proper absorption of calcium in our bodies. It also contains Omega 3 such as avocado to help us strengthen our protective barrier of our skin.

Try our Salmon & Tzatziki or Salmon Poke to nourish yourself with all the good things that salmon brings us!

CARROTS
When you think of tanning you think of carrots as they contain many vitamins that are also extremely nutritious. We associate carrots with tanning as they help produce melanin that helps to acquire that natural tan and above all protects against the sun’s rays. Not only that, it also has anti-cancer properties due to its high level of carotenoids.

Enjoy your carrots with our delicious dishes:
Hummus table
Teriyaki Grilled Free-range Chicken

APPLES
To keep us hydrated in the hot summer, the apple contains 86% water. In addition to these qualities, it helps to quench, strengthen defenses, helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease or Alzheimer’s, and contains anti-inflammatory properties.

Nothing tastier than eating that slice of apple with our Apple & Goji Crumble, it’s on another level of good!

TOMATOES

Tomato, staple food in our Mediterranean diet, is a food that helps us maintain our tan, it also helps fight against aging from the sun’s rays as it is rich in lycopene, a property that helps against wrinkles and skin aging.

Consume your dose of lycopene with our dishes:
Grilled Free-range Chicken Nature
Grilled Vegetables
Pasture Beef Loin
Grilled Fresh Fish Tuna & Avocado
Squid & Black Garlic Bowl
Our Grilled Burgers
Our dishes with pico de gallo:
Grilled Quinoa & Avocado Salad
Bowl Chipotle Mex


OUR SALADS:
Tomato Rosa & Burrata and the Free-range Chicken Caesar with cherry tomatoes include the tomatoes we need to combat the evils of the sun.

We will meet again in the next blog! and in the meantime we are waiting for you in our restaurants 😉

#greenvita #comebienvivenien

If you are a follower of our blog, you know that, in February and April, we dedicated a couple of pages to face stressful situations that we usually experience. You will not be surprised if we mentioned that we should exercise, eat a balanced and healthy diet… but you may not know the systemic desensitization technique or the Jacobson technique. We encourage you to review our previous blogs and catch up!

With children closing their academic courses, taking final exams, or choosing a career for next year, it can be a good time to delve into new ideas if you feel stressed right now. If exercising doesn’t work for you, or you don’t have time … if eating lettuce-based diet tires you or you don’t want to know anything about Jacobson … here are some new tips that might work for you:

Do you know what really stresses you? Is your boss? Taking kids to the pool? Make a list of those situations that cause you the most stress and think about how you can deal with them. Can you reduce the number of times you do stressful things? Can you change these activities for others? Can just avoid them? Specialists call this ‘stress inoculation’ … google it for more info!

Have you ever tried to physically relax through breathing or meditation? Mind-body relaxation is essential and good breath control works wonders. Specific techniques of yoga or meditation such as conscious breathing, stopping of thought or controlling negative and repetitive thoughts are great allies in our worst moments.

So… get your batteries ready and face this end of the course positively with techniques we just shared with you! One step more… the holidays are so close!!

The vast majority of families must know what Alzheimer’s is, but there are many questions about this disease that should be answered: can it be cured when someone suffers from it?, what are its causes?, can we prevent it somehow? Unfortunately, science is still quite away from answering them so, in this blog, we are going to summarize what we know now.

Studies have concluded that it is possible to cut the chances of developing the disease by up to a third even when there is a genetic predisposition. Only 1% of Alzheimer’s cases have been shown to be related to genetic inheritance. That means that the other 99% of cases, despite the fact that much remains to be discovered about this disease, originate from other factors such as lifestyle.

As you can imagine, genetic factors are part of us and cannot be changed. That is why, today, on GreenVita’s blog, we are going to explain some habits that can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by up to 30%.

Let start with sport! Regular, non-explosive physical exercise improves cognitive function so aerobic exercise is recommended to maintain our memory and processing speed.

Second, we will emphasize the importance of social relationships, since they are linked to self-efficacy and self-esteem, which, in turn, improve our mental function. A more active social integration serves to reduce the stress of daily life and promote health.

Prevent Alzheimer

Third, mental stimulation must continue beyond studies. Reading books and playing board games is great for our brain, avoid cognitive deterioration and dementia if they are performed regularly.

Fourth, Alzheimer’s prevention also involves the cardiovascular field, with a crucial role in mental decline. Alzheimer’s can be accompanied by high blood pressure or diabetes so, taking care of our heart is always a good idea!

Fifth, the diet! It should be noted that, as the main enemies, we have the consumption of saturated fat and copper, since they significantly increase cognitive deterioration. The opposite is a rich diet, specially in antioxidants, vitamin C, E and omega 3, true balms for the mind.

And to wrap up this checklist… motivation! It is essential to have enthusiasm for living, enjoying life, being happy…. It has been shown that not having goals or motivations causes the brain to deteriorate at a much higher rate, reaching the point that loss of interest and emotions is something that manifests itself in the vast majority of people who begin to suffer from Alzheimer’s.

So, time to enjoy Greenviters! Don’t lose your motivation!

As we know, a good work environment contributes to achieve better performance and more satisfaction at work. In the same way, a cozy environment, that provides calmness and serenity, will contribute to our digestion and will help our body to assimilate nutrients better.

Eating is much more enjoyable if we make it relaxed and enjoying with all our senses the color, aroma and taste of the dish. And also, eating with adequate lighting, decoration and music, especially if we eat outside our home, is essential. And, of course, eating in good company will make the pleasure even more intense. At #GreenVita we take care of all these details at our restaurants during the service!

Is very important to put all our senses in the act of eating, because it affects the taste of food.

There are studies saying that television, while we are eating, withdraws the attention of our food and encourages us to eat more, and can even lead to anxiety or bad digestion. All due to the content of the programs and / or advertising that we are receiving through our senses while we eat.

Excessive noise or screams and discussions excite our nervous system, leading us to eat faster, in an uncontrolled and unpleasant way.

When we are eating, it is advisable to stop any other activity that we are doing, since it will take away our consciousness of what we eat and the feeling of satiety. The right place to eat is at the table and sitting correctly.

Eating in good company increases pleasure, however, we must not lose sight of what we eat and how much we eat. Eating with our family is very healthy and constructive for all its members, especially for children and teens.

More tips to eat well and live well very soon! Go ahead #Greenviters!

It is true that in the summer and due to the hot weather and environmental humidity, we do not desire to do physical activity. But it is also true that summer offers many fun opportunities to exercise outdoors. You need to lower the intensity of physical activity and choose the coolest hours of the day, protect you properly from the sun, moisturize, and monitor sudden changes of temperature in air-conditioned facilities … but we can continue to take care of our body and our health as you do in winter, all in order to stay healthy all year round.

For example, is there something better than swimming in a pool as natural as the ocean? Or, perhaps, in a lake of crystalline waters in the mountains? Because swimming is an excellent exercise for the summer. Another physical activity you can not resist is snorkeling. Is there a better way to go through these hot flashes than looking at the wonders of the seabed?  And what do you say about, simply, walking down the beach? Long walks on the sand are highly beneficial.

Another proposal is to do yoga on the beach, how do you feel about that? It is a delight to exercise your body and relax your mind with the sun, the sea, the sand and the breeze refreshing your body. Avoid, of course, the hottest hours of the sun, it is advisable to practice it early in the morning or at night. In addition, it is a very pleasant physical, mental and energetic activity to share in a group.

You can also practice volleyball, soccer or tennis on the beach, but avoid the strongest hours of sunshine and, because they are intense physical activities, rest whenever you need, look for the shade from time to time, and hydrate! And … dancing on the beach with the rhythm of the summer song? It’s so funny! And, a last suggestion to take care of yourself and stay healthy while doing physical activity in the summer, is the paddle-surf, a classical since some years ago … but, if you want to be really trendy … You have to dare with the yoga paddle, the fusion of static surfing and the postures or asanas of yoga … a real challenge! So, you have no excuse for not taking care of your body and spending a fun and healthy summer. Eat well, exercise your body and live well, also in the summer!

Some weeks ago GreenVita participated in MadeInfluencer with the activity ‘Greenvita’s ShowCooking, a Food&Healthy concept’. With this show we can communicate better our brand and GreenVita’s DNA.

madeinfluencer

The most delicious moment was our visual cooking performance and the degustation of our products and plates. As always, we provide good and healthy well combined ingredients, and always, prepared with love. ¿Why don’t you come to see us next time? Because the idea is to repeat MadeInfluencer experience twice a year in Barcelona and, in the future, in other Spanish and international cities.

madeinfluencer

#Madeinfluencer is the first international forum, located in Barcelona, where it is possible to interact with influencers, bloggers and youtubers, and, this time, we met at #ROC35 (Poblenou), on February, 1st.

madeinfluencer

GreenVita shared this experience with other life style and travel sector companies, gastronomy and tourism enterprises and digital communication professionals. The headline for students is that a ‘Master in Social media, influencer and professional blogger and videoblogger’ has been created, perhaps you want to joint it soon!

madeinfluencer

MadeInfluencer was an astonishing success, with a complete ‘sold out’, fact that ensures the next edition that is going to take place in Barcelona on October the 25th. The success was also possible to Renfe-SNCF en Cooperación, DietBox and GreenVita (all gold partners of the event).

How will be food in the future? Which ingredient or product will be selected to eradicate extreme hunger or to become the key for interstellar trips? It is quite difficult to know how will be food in the future or which ingredients will form our menu in twenty years from now. But, guess what? Our bet is for quinoa!

benefits of quinoa

Although quinoa has been known and consumed in the Andes for most than 7000 years, it is a new-arrived at our gastronomical culture. FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and NASA have said quinoa will be the food of the future because of its extraordinary nutritional composition. Quinoa is an excellent ingredient for everybody, but especially for those who you have to take care of the most (kids, pregnant women…). The sacred Inca food is composed by all essential amino acids, magnesium, zinc, lithium, calcium, vitamins… Quinoa is perfect in its internal combination of proteins, fat and carbohydrates, and has no gluten.

benefits of quinoa

Three different types of quinoa are available: white, red and black, each one with some differences in calories, protein and carbohydrate percentages… so, it is a better idea to eat quinoa than mixing the three types? The Real Quinoa used in GreenVita is made of white, red and black quinoa, and you can easily find it in our salads, veggie hamburgers and some sautéed dishes. Come to GreenVita and enjoy quinoa with us!

Some weeks ago, during November, we met to practise yoga at GreenVita DiagonalMar, with our friends of Yoganet, Frolis, Naked and… all of you! The morning started cool, but we warmed up fast with some stretching and concentration exercises to be ready for the Yoganet Girls’ Master Class.

During the class, yoga poses evolved from the easy ones to the most difficult, so everybody could try his level. Elasticity and strength became necessary meanwhile yogis enjoyed. Some participants told us “the idea was incredible and helped to eliminate all their stress”. There were lots of rookies that started with us the yoga practice but the vast majority were really professionals with lots of classes over their shoulders, so, next time, perhaps we can set up another class without Yoganet (Sorry for that, friends)

And, after a perfect class, is there anything better than a tasty and healthy breakfast to recover energies? Looking for that aim we had the collaboration of Frolis and Naked, our partners again. Frolis is a healthy cake shop in Barcelona with recipes that do not contain refined sugar, refined flour, dairy products neither eggs or cholesterol. Naked, by the way, offers natural juices made with real vegetables and fruits. Thanks to all of you who made our yoga class possible! And, the last and most important question: do you want to repeat it in Spring?

We celebrated the last Halloween with our littlest fans and with Frolis and Naked. Our celebration was in GreenVita DiagonalMar and in Viladecans, with a handmade cookie workshop. In our opinion, it is essential that our kids understand, from the very beginning, the importance of healthy habits, and the easiest way to convince them is with attractive and funny activities. And, if these activities let our little children get dirty, funnier for them!


It is important to say that our children offered joy and fun to everybody from the first minute, joining all the parts of the process, selecting the best design for our cookies, mixing ingredients and so on. Magic was ready to appear! And it appears!


From that moment on, smiles appeared in every face and volunteers spread around, ingredients mixed without stop (not all in the correct order or place ), but the dough survived to all of us and cookies were very near.


The dough was ready to create the most terrific cookies of the history! Because it was the last objective, wasn’t it? Looking at reality, we finished with little cats and gingerbread men, not very terrific, but absolutely tasty. The end of the history? All our cookies disappeared in seconds!


Our workshops were absolutely funny for all, not only for children, and that joy and positive emotion was surely transmitted to our cookies. To end this post we want to thank all of you for your participation, and also thanks Frolis and Naked, our partners in this story. Frolis is a healthy cake shop in Barcelona with recipes that do not contain refined sugar, refined flour, dairy products neither eggs or cholesterol. Naked, by the way, offers natural juices made with real vegetables and fruits. We copy below the links to social networks of our partners if you want to take a look:

Superfoods, what are they? and why we should include them in our diet.

In recent times there is much talk about the superfoods and the excellence for our health that are derived from their consumption. But what are superfoods and what benefits do they bring us? We explain it here in Greenvita.

According to the prestigious Mayo Clinic superfoods are those foods that meet at least three requirements: be an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, minerals; with high content in phytonutrients and antioxidant compounds and of low caloric density.

Eating habits and new recipes of some processed foods present in the Western diet have resulted in the failure to consume minerals, vitamins and nutrients, which are fundamental in our diet to improve our health. We have gone from the real aim of eating which is to nourish our body, to quench our appetite.

Mostly when talking about superfoods it is raw foods that are more nutrient dense than processed and cooked foods. Abundant in enzymes, they are also filled with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and phytochemicals, which help protect us from disease. Rich in antioxidants have great therapeutic potential and anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.

what are the superfoods

The concept of food as medicine has been known since the time of Hippocrates “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.” All in all, the value of eating well, the importance of diet and the potential of certain foods for health and well-being are recognized.

We must include the superfoods in our diet to get back to a diet that takes care of our body in a natural way.

Currently among the most popular superfoods are: chia seeds, quinoa, kale, alfalfa sprouts, turmeric, spirulina kelp, green tea, blueberries etc. But we must not forget that the habitul consumers of the Mediterranean diet have our own super-foods nearby, namely: olive oil, broccoli, legumes, oranges, walnuts, sardines, garlic, tomato and the Iberian ham among others.

Remember that the true pillars of health are: a healthy and balanced diet rich in seasonal foods accompanied by regular practice of moderate exercise.
