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!

Many times we think that eating simply means putting something in your mouth, and that’s not the case. It is necessary to be conscious of the repercussion that what we eat can have in our organism. Although our body is a living machine that can regenerate, exceeding in bad alimentary conducts could cause irreversible damages.

No one would think to refuel a diesel car with gas, right? Something similar happens with our body, and yet we are constantly complicit in this kind of eating habits in our society.

Many of the foods that we see daily in supermarkets are not only empty in nutrients, they contain additives and other substances that are literally poison for our body. The most curious thing of all, is that they look appealing, but don’t be fooled, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

In GreenVita we love knowing that what we eat not only looks spectacular, also delicious, 100% healthy and nutritious. We are made to share with you all the benefits of natural, ecological and proximity foods, since they are our daily bread. But today we want to turn it around and take a moment to tell you about the foods with which you should not exceed yourself, if you really want to eat a balanced and healthy diet.

· Industrial bakery: barely provides nutrients, it has a high sugar content. It’s very rich in bad cholesterol precursors (LDL) and is also addictive.

· Highly processed foods: those that are made with ingredients of very low quality, rich in sugars, saturated fats, preservatives and chemicals that could ultimately adversely affect health.

· Foods whose base of cooking is coated or fried: they absorb a large amount of saturated fats that is tied with carcinogenic effects.

· Sausages that are too fatty: mainly because they contribute animal fat (saturated).

· Foods based on refined flours: they cause the body to take in excess sugar, they could alter some metabolic and hormonal functions, and they can also be addictive.

· Alcohol: contributes “empty” calories and increases the feeling of hunger.The consumption of all of them, especially if it is high and periodic, can cause serious health problems, causing diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular problems; cause obesity, malnutrition, lack of vitality and / or addiction.

So, from GreenVita we call on you to take care of what you eat, as this translates into taking care of you and your body. Eliminating from the diet or only consuming these foods sporadically, you will gain in vitality, quality of life and health.

For us “eating well is living well” and we love doing it by enjoying delicious, nutritious and balanced dishes. For this reason, we have at your disposal varied and healthy proposals in our menu, which will undoubtedly make you land in the universe of good gastronomy. Do you want to be part of the GreenVita movement?

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!

We usually choose the ingredients of our meals without thinking deeply about its properties. That is why today, GreenVita will explain you some interesting things about one of the most consumed products in the world: lemon. Its cleansing and flavoring capabilities, nutritional properties and therapeutic applications go further its usual applications in juices, liqueurs, home-made desserts and pastries.

Lemon is a hybrid of the Citrus medicine species, comes from Southeast Asia and was reintroduced into our country around the 13th century by the Arabs after their disappearance of European plantations in the 3rd century.

All parts in lemon can be used, both pulp and skin and, of course, its juice. In addition, it is a fruit of a tree that produces throughout the year, with which we have lemons for a while! With it we can marinate raw fish or use it when cooking in the oven or grill. It is excellent raw as an accompaniment once we have extracted its juice and have watered with it the foods that we want to intensify. Meanwhile cooking rice, meat, seafood, pasta… the lemon is a perfect seasoning.

It is an incredible ingredient with extraordinary nutritional properties due to the large amount of vitamin C it presents, a vitamin that acts as a great natural defence against colds and allergies. On the other hand, the lemon is a powerful healing of wounds, so it is advisable to have it at your fingertips. In infusions, a piece of lemon or a little of its juice with honey makes it a powerful natural antibiotic. It is also a potent digestive because of its Ph, less acidic than that of our body, therefore it performs alkalizing functions, avoiding bad digestion and stomach discomfort. In addition, it is highly recommended to extract, naturally, stones from the liver, kidney and gallbladder.

Its shape, smell, taste, touch and presence are attractive and decorative, and give colour to the table, to your breakfasts and at any time of day. We encourage you to put lemon in your diet, in Greenvita you will find it on more than one plate! Your health will be grateful.
