When we talk about pollution, we easily think about air pollution through vehicles or factories, waste such as plastics or hard-to-decompose waste, or even toxic materials for the environment. But an act as daily as personal hygiene based on soaps and / or detergents is highly damaging to the planet and seems to go more unnoticed than those mentioned above.

Soap has been present in our history for years. In the beginning, it was made naturally, with natural oils and aromatic plants that gave them pleasant smells. With the passage of time and the arrival of the industry, this type of product has been exploited to the point that it is not only a product of first necessity, but that the brands have been mutating to transform it into a more exclusive product.

And it is precisely now, when we begin to wonder about the impact of soaps and detergents on our planet, that its manufacturing is at its highest point. The main problem is clear, in its elaboration process large quantities of a non-renewable resource essential for the existence of life are wasted and contaminated: water.

We must take into account a series of important points that affect the environment:

  • Biodegradability: Only soaps with the surfactant (substance of the soaps that causes damage to aquatic life) that lose 90% of its property of decreasing the surface tension of the water after 28 days of being discharged can be labeled as biodegradable.
  • Eutrophication: Many conventional detergents use phosphates, phosphonates or percarboxylates as enhancers. These substances act as algae fertilizers, causing them to reproduce very quickly. The large amount of algae depletes the oxygen in the water, which is no longer available for aquatic fauna (microbes and fish), and generates bad odors. In addition to causing very serious imbalances in lakes and rivers.
  • Bleachers: Although bleaching agents are rarely used in these types of products, they could sometimes contain chlorine or oxygen. One of the main problems of the chlorine industry is that it generates organochlorine substances, such as dioxins and furans, which cause many health problems such as: hormonal dysfunctions, malformations in the fetus and cancer, among others, and because they cannot be metabolized , accumulate in the tissues of living beings.
  • Antibacterial: Lately, many conventional detergents contain antibacterial agents. They have no practical utility, and instead can cause problems to aquatic bacterial life.
  • Packing: Although there are detergents that are presented in cardboard boxes, the tendency is to present conventional detergents and soaps in plastic containers. The most common is to use several types of plastic that can not be separated later, and therefore can not be recycled, and this is a serious problem for our planet.

As you can see, it is very important that we all become aware of it and begin to act thinking about the care of the planet and directly, in our own survival. It is urgent to promote the use of soaps and biodegradable detergents, in addition to other substances for cleaning in general, which end up leading to drains, which in turn reach rivers and seas, causing serious contamination of the waters, which threatens the existence of many species.

One of the first steps to contribute to the reduction of pollution is to be aware of everything that pollutes, that we inform ourselves and seek alternatives free of waste, which are increasingly more, but we still need to give more prominence to all of them in Our day to day

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?

In GreenVita, we have been pioneers in incorporating from the first day a philosophy of life in accordance with health and well-being, not only of people, but also of the environment.

Living in the relentless society we live in, we decided to take a breath and reflect on: What are our basic needs as human beings? How can we cover them? And how to make it all sustainable?

The answer? Unprocessed, local, seasonal and organic ingredients.

This is how one of the pillars of GreenVita emerged, our philosophy of food. It supports our gastronomic proposals thanks to which millions of people have managed to model their habits, discovering the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and being active proponents of the healthy and ecological movement.

It seemed that we had found an answer to the previous questions. Covering the basic needs of our bodies in the best way possible had to go through the consumption of healthy, unprocessed products, without additives. Supplying ourselves with seasonal and/or organic products so that the entire process will be 100% sustainable. 

But… Is caring for food and the environment enough? 

We realized that, despite the fact that the human body is designed to be in motion, society was mutating towards generations locked in themselves, sedentary, living behind screens. This was a serious health problem, so the previous points lost strength and meaning, if we didn’t also promote physical activity.

This is how we established the second pillar. Physical activity, which along with good habits, became a solid, firm and stable basis on which to build our project, which we are still growing today. 

Eating healthy should always go hand in hand with physical activity, not only to help maintain your weight, but also to prevent your body from diseases.

These elements will determine your lifestyle, which is directly related to your health. Join the GreenVita movement and promote with us, flavor, sustainability and vitality!

Hello #GreenViters! Autumn is here! It is a season characterized by constant changes and surely you have realized the day is getting shorter, the sun is more difficult to find, temperatures are getting colder…

All these changes force our body to adapt and to warn our biorhythms that summer is over! We are already immersed in routines of work, study, physical activities, and for that reason many people feel a lack of energy, fatigue or sadness, all of them temporary symptoms, that will disappear when our body finishes the adaptation to the new season.

To help you overcome this difficult point of the year, here are some tips to have in mind:

First, rest, and, above all, sleep enough. Second, a physical moderate exercise is extremely important, use it to go outside and have a sunbath every time you can, which will control your serotonin levels. And, finally, control your eating habits.

These habits must include a good breakfast. Our body comes from a fast of about 8 or 10 hours, therefore, you need food that gives you energy and nutrients! Do not forget to eat something at mid-morning, to improve your physical and mental performance, to increase concentration and productivity. And your mood is also going to benefit from that mid-morning snack! We are talking about healthy food that does not contain refined oils and … even if the 12 o’clock coffee or a beer are a temptation, they usually aren’t the best way to feed yourself. You can take a lactic product (milk, cheese or yogurt) or vegetable milk instead, a fresh juice of fruits and vegetables or a piece of fruit that gives you vitamins. The noon is the ideal time to incorporate carbohydrates, proteins and other nutrients, which combined in a healthy way, help to maintain the daily rhythm and face the afternoon, where we tend to concentrate all kind of sports activities… And, for dinner, something light and healthy, that does not hinder the digestion, and, above all, nothing of exciting or saturated fats.

We remind you that, in GreenVita, we are opened to the public with a wide time slot to help you to get those nutritional habits that are so necessary, and we have a very extensive menu of salads, sautéed, grilled burgers, fish and baked gratin, that will delight your diet. We are waiting for you!

Do you know the “January slope”? We are, now, at the September slope!! So, at #Greenvita, we want to help you to beat it!!

The end of summer can be a new beginning to think about how we are managing year 2018. After holidays, beach, naps, breaking schedules, it’s time to recover normality and routines. ‘Routine’ is not necessary a bad thing… A healthy, organized and controlled routine is what we really need to “return to reality”.

In the first place, both adults and children must recover routines but leaving also time for leisure. Holidays have not ended 100%. To do this, it is very important to organize all the tasks that are waiting for us, but also leave time to us. A calm and controlled back to reality is what we need!

Second, we recommend you to progressively recover sleep schedules and eating habits after your holiday’s chaos. Remember how important are sleep schedules to rest and recover energies, and how important is to organize the shopping to plan ahead healthy lunches, in and out your home. But remember that you always have a table at #Greenvita!

And, last but not least, we must also recover activity and physical exercise routines. Autumn is still a favourable season to enjoy outdoors (walk, run…), but, without doubt, there are also many interesting activities indoor (yoga, dance, enjoy team games…).

Undoubtedly, September is a month to recover routines and stability. At #Greenvita we also look forward and we help you with this new beginning! Our objective? Eat well to live well! Welcome home!

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!

Have you visited any of our restaurants during the month of May? Have you noticed something different? Have you browsed our website? Have you been alert to our weekly newsletter? If you answered yes to all or most of these questions, you know what we mean by saying: renew or die!

At Greenvita we try to cook a healthier, more balanced and natural, but also fresh, fun and dynamic diet. That is why, this May, we have new gastronomic proposal!

Summer comes and, with it, we all change our diet, making it lighter, more colorful and more attractive. At Greenvita we offer variety and culinary dynamism, and, of course, balanced and varied healthy food for all of you each season!

And how have we renewed our gastronomic proposal?

We have expanded our variety of salads, which are very suitable for the hot summer approaching. We must underline the new salad of tomatoes and feta cheese; We have also introduced the salad of the day, to offer more variety to the customers that visit us habitually.

We also have a new section of chef’s specialties, where you will find the salmon poke, with fresh leaves, marinated salmon, eco-rice, sesame, wakame seaweed, edamame, pad choi and mango chutney. And, as a second specialty, you can not miss the ceviche, consisting of fish of the day, red onion, celery, ginger, coriander, lime, orange and chipote.

In the starters section we have included the hummus of lentils and the spectacular gazpacho, king of the summer. In the sautéed section we also have news, roasted pumpkin rissotto with roasted onions and sautéed with black tagliatelle.

In the section of meats is where you are going to find more news. New varieties of chicken, such as teriyaki or ‘mediterráneo’ with ‘samfaina’, goat’s cheese and roasted aubergine await you. And, the great stars: roastbeef and kefta, organic beef, macerated with coriander and cumin, accompanied by roasted vegetables, tzatziki and bulgur.

And … We invite you to discover all the changes for yourselves!

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.

Meanwhile Barcelona debates if more or less tourism is desirable or about the problem of gentrification, GreenVita decided to visit 2018 Oikos Spring Meeting, celebrated in our city from March 8th to 11th. In that International Meeting, dedicated to sustainable tourism, we debated how can we help to maintain Barcelona as one of the most visited cities in the world but avoiding to overexploit it.

Entrepreneurs, experts and agents, that have interest in creating a social concern about sustainable mobility and tourism, had the opportunity to debate how it could be done at a practical level and through a Social Responsible Approach, taking into account not only ecological but also social terms.

In GreenVita we try to do that through our GreenVita DNA, trying to work for a sustainable gastronomy that uses products from local providers, that uses filtered water, that focuses the menu to vegetables more than to meat or fish… Providing a flexi diet, a healthy diet, without lies, cooking respecting ingredients, offering a quiet place to enjoy and relax, are also good ways to reach the objective of sustainability.

After Oikos we are thinking about other activities, conferences, and so on, and you will be informed throught our social networks, so… follow us! Until the next GreenVita’s activity, why don’t you enjoy us in one of our restaurants? Come and eat our healthy proposals prepared with love and care! And let us know what do you think! Your opinion is essential to us.

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.

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 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.

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 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!

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.

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!
