Summer is coming and, with it, high temperatures! Sun is nice, beaches are better in summer but… our body needs extra care to deal with this season! High temperatures test our body daily so it is essential to maintain good hydration. In this blog, we will learn about some rich, flavored, and low-calorie ways to stay hydrated without having to consume only water. Of course, we cannot rule out water, since the alternatives that we will discuss here must be complementary to this key element in our nutrition.

In the summer season, it is necessary to drink constantly throughout the day, without feeling thirsty. We must drink to keep our body always hydrated, so, drink! But don’t just think of water, think of cold soups (made them with vegetables, containing, for example, zucchini, cucumber …) or gazpachos, delicious ways to take care of our body while maintaining a healthy, low-calorie diet. Get your blender in shape, because you will need it!

Homemade slushies are also good allies for the summer season. In this case, we must use fruits with large amounts of water, such as melon, watermelon, pineapple, strawberry … thus, while we are keeping our body “cool”, we are also eating healthy fruits that provide us with large amounts of vitamins.

There are other, somewhat more sophisticated ways to hydrate our body, such as ‘cold press’ which, in addition to providing us with part of our daily fruit intake, provide us with vitamins and minerals. Remember that at Greenvita we are experts in ‘cold press’! Why not a visit to Greenvita for one of them?

Finally, infusions with ice, another rich and healthy way to relieve that unbearable heat that, surely, we will soon be suffering.

Ready? Summer is coming!

We wanted to call this blog “put a partner plant in your life”; so, let’s go with our ideas:

You can talk to it and it will never argue with you… something that, even your best friend, will never be able to do… perhaps is for this reason that, many studies say that living surrounded by plants, improves our mood.

They don’t smoke, they don’t leave dirty clothes smelling everywhere … On the contrary! They are an excellent air filter that purifies the environment; almost better than a HEPA filter!

They do not rest on the walls or windows leaving stains, nor use the bathroom or shower. In fact, they prevent mold, reduce ambient humidity and are ideal for maintaining a healthy environment, especially if we have people with allergies around us.

They don’t laugh out loud with any Youtube nonsense, nor do they use TV. In fact, they reduce noise because they are natural sound absorbers.

They don’t get up in the morning with bad breath or disheveled hair. They’re always beautiful every time you look at them.

And some can feed you, because we can use aromatic plants or fruit ones to decorate our house or our terraces, thus cultivating our own healthy food. Healthy eating in our home can also depend on them!

Of course, they need you to take care of them, to water them, to provide them with the necessary nutrients and to find them a good place in your home, with the light they need. You know, like people, not everyone is the same. Some feel more comfortable outside your home while others love that little corner near your couch; some need semi-direct light and others enjoy the penumbra more; some will disappear with winter to return when spring comes, while others will be by your side all year round.

It is for these and other reasons that, at GreenVita, we are fans of plants, and not only as decoration, but also as essential ingredients in our dishes and our healthy cooking.

You know, put a couple plant in your life … and remember, eat well, live well!

Bread has long been considered an essential in every home, although we are consuming less and less of it with the years and, nowadays, it is more processed and of lower quality than before.

Among the main causes of this decrease in consumption is the famous relationship between bread and obesity, a relationship that many studies deny. Thus, although this product seems a taboo for all those who want to lose weight, a good quality bar contains between 1 and 3 grams of fat per 100, so a diet with plenty of this food can facilitate the decrease of weight, contrary to what is usually thought. What’s more, bread provides mainly carbohydrates that, when digested, are transformed into glucose, the fuel for our muscles and brain.

But, as we have always heard, ‘excesses are never good!’ We should not exceed 4 slices of bread a day if we don’t want to achieve the opposite effect.

Another myth that we will deny is that ‘wholemeal bread is less fat.’ According to different studies that analyse white bread and wholemeal bread, there are no major differences between the calories and proteins provided by each of them. In any case, for the defenders of wholemeal bread, it does provide more vitamins, more minerals and extra fiber. You may not know it but fiber tends to produce a satiating effect that makes us eat less, which will help all those who want to lose weight.

We bring you here some types of bread that, from our point of view, you must take into account:

1) Rye bread: probably known, this bread is dark and slightly bitter, but ideal for those who suffer from constipation.
2) Cornbread: it has some resemblance to gingerbread, very rich in protein and a key bread for celiacs.
3) Raisin bread: do you like nuts? Then you will love this bread.
4) Vienna bread: it is one of the sweetest, softest and most pleasant on the market.

These are only some of the great amount of healthy options that bread can offer everyone! In addition, this food offers us multiple options that are perfect, also, for vegetarian or vegan people, like the toasts with margarine and jam (or with olive oil and avocado), the croutons inside a good cream or puree, or fried slices, of which there are many options and recipes that do not include animal elements.

And, to say goodbye, remember that if you want to eat healthy in Barcelona, our restaurants must be, without a doubt, your first choice. There you can enjoy the delicious ‘grilled burgers’ (accompanied by some really delicious breads), but do not forget to taste, too, our ‘glass bread with tomato’ (a classic).

One more month, we remind you that ‘there is nothing better than good food to keep us healthy!’ And that, good ‘health, always starts with healthy eating’.

See you soon!

Summer, vacations, the routine disappears from our life … and, this is wonderful! But, in turn, it is usually a time of the year a bit disorganized, which can lead to a less healthy diet, as a consequence of the lack of control of meals and schedules. We go to bed later, maybe we do not eat breakfast as we should, we eat excessively… we eat at odd hours, drink more alcohol or sugary drinks than in winter… To all this, add we are lazier to do sports and the cocktail is perfect! So … Why don’t we summarize how to stay healthy during the summer?

Do you know what kind of food help our body in summer? Fruits are the queens because they have a high content of water, as well as vitamins, minerals and fiber; In addition, they help to avoid summer dehydration. However, do not eat too much, because they have lots of sugar. We recommend you to eat watermelon and melon because of its high water content as well as their vitamins A and C. Include also vegetables in your diet. Tomato stands out for its refreshing and antioxidant power, its content of vitamins B, C, E, potassium and magnesium. The lettuce, another summer queen. It keeps us hydrated and has a satiating effect. The cucumber has a lot of water and is rich in fiber and, remember that its skin concentrates most of the nutrients! The pepper is as recommendable as the cucumber. And, finally, broccoli is very interesting because it will help your skin stay healthy and flexible, while its vitamin E protects it from ultraviolet rays. We must also consider the benefits of fish and seafood, especially tuna, sardines and anchovies, and also the wonderful clams! If you take a look at our menu you will see that you can find most of these foods in it. That is how #Greenvita takes care of you in summer! And, what should you avoid eating? Well, it is very clear: fried and fat food, margarines, industrial pastries, fast food, soups and prepared sauces, popcorn, frozen and salty snacks or ice cream.

With these tips, we are sure that you will spend a fantastic summer, being healthy and happy. We hope to see you in any of our restaurants, there we will help you eat well and live well, also in summer!
