Are you already enjoying the summer? Are you one of those #Greenviters who goes with flip-flops and swimsuits everywhere? Holidays in the mountains? Enjoying the seawater on some delicious beach? Or, on the contrary, have you not even left the office to go to throw out the garbage?

Whatever you are doing, we are almost sure of one thing: you have a sore throat. Don’t worry too much! It’s very common, during the summer, to suffer from pharyngitis, angina, or to catch a cold…. Wanna some tips to avoid those problems?

The power of Hydration: keep your throat hydrated, better with water, but you have other healthy and natural alternatives in our May blog. Hydration is the key to protect mucous membranes and vocal cords. Watch out !!! We have to drink slowly, with small sips, more if the drink is very cold or icy, because, if not, the remedy is still worse than the disease.

Being cool is always a good option: are you wearing a scarf or pashmina? They are essential allies in summer because changes in temperature are common (interior with air conditioning, exterior, cars, public transport, unexpected storm, drop in temperature …) and tremendously harmful to our throat. At home, in the office, in restaurants … use your good taste by choosing a good complement and, in addition, protect your throat!

Time to go to bed! Although dirty minds may be thinking about how to use a bed in the best way, we encourage you to rest and sleep well. Remember that the ideal is 6 to 8 hours a day, and, perhaps now, you can have that much desired time to sleep! Kill your alarm clock and, between summer parties, find a place to sleep, better if you have company 😉

Let’s see you in August! Until then, eat well and live well!

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!!

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!

Want to be healthier aaaannddd have more money? Sure! Today we are going to focus on some tips to save money in our visit to the shop or supermarket. Find below 6 ideas to save with the shopping cart. 

The first trick that experts recommend is to eat before purchasing. Hunger impulses us to buy completely expendable products that will end up making our basket considerably more expensive.

Second, don’t be in a hurry! Don’t take the first thing you see because supermarkets strategically place the most expensive products at eye level to get our attention. Spend time shuffling, comparing products and prices. White label products, in general, are of high quality or even better than those of well-known brand and offer us a saving of 25-35%

The third idea is the well-known “shopping list”; these lists, whether on paper or digital (many apps allow you to do it on your mobile), are the key to focus on what we need.

Fourth, a classic (surely you all know it, but we will repeat it): compare prices among products but, even more important, among supermarket chains. According to the OCU (Organization of Consumers and Users), we can save up to a total of € 950 a year with this practice.

Fifth, use offers correctly. Be careful! Sellers are very smart and sometimes try to fool you! Compare the unit price of the product with and without the offer and, above all, make sure that you are going to consume everything you buy in a reasonable amount of time (otherwise, you will end up throwing it in the trash).

And last but not least, focus on seasonal products. Vegetables and fruits are cheaper and tastier if you select them in their proper season.

Now you know some tricks to save, are we going to start using them?

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.

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!

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!
