Spring = detox and awakening, find your balance!
Spring has arrived and Summer is just round the corner, it’s that moment of the year in which we have the desire (often the need) to feel better and get back in shape!! If every season has its fruits, herbs, and vegetables there’s a reason, right? Spring is the season of rebirth, both physical and spiritual, so sit down for a moment and take 5 minutes to read these few lines where I’ll explain how to choose your combination to create unique draining and detox dishes! Ready?? 3, 2, 1…. Go!
As they say “it is not the pasta but the sauce that makes us fatty” and it is exactly as it is. Often mistakes are committed in the choices of food to enjoy in our meal. One of the most wrong choices is to associate, in the same meal, cereals of different type (example bread and potatoes, pasta and bread…) with maybe even excessive seasoning and/or oils. The same thing of course also concerns the choice of protein sources: we all know that it is good the hamburger with a slice of cheese on top and the carbonara or even the simple salad tuna-beans-eggs, but it is not optimal if we suffer from swelling and we want to purify a little!
The foods that should not be missed are quinoa (a pseudo-low-glycemic index, gluten-free cereal that helps cleanse the liver), the avocado (which helps the liver gland produce glutathione, a very powerful antioxidant substance that cleanses the liver ), oats (excellent cereal with a low glycemic index, rich in fiber and balanced, purifies and helps constipation) and the vegetables (rich in vitamins, fiber and mineral salts that help cleanse the liver and body from bad fats).
Here are the combinations that I suggest you to find your balance again. Remember #themoodfood, that is the food of #happyness is up to your choice!
Cereals & derivatives: rice, barley, oats, quinoa, corn, buckwheat, bread, couscous, pasta and similar are all welcome. Combine them with vegetables and protein sources, but never mix cereals among them.
Protein foods: white meats, lean-cut red meats (finely selected minced beef, sliced, fillet and bresaola), non-seasoned cheeses, legumes, tofu, seitan. For a perfect dish, combine them with vegetables and whole or grain cereals. The wrong choice is to combine them together.
Fats: prefer those of avocado, oily dried fruit, and extra virgin olive oil cold pressed. Due to their caloric density, they should be consumed moderately and in small quantities (eg 10 grams per meal) and unsaturated should be preferred. So avoid the trans fats found in the above-mentioned packaged and industrial foods.
Vegetables & fruit: the clear way for this category of food, limiting the consumption of 1 fruit (100 grams) away from the main meals (lunch and dinner), accompanying it with a portion of dried fruit or low-fat / Greek white yogurt. This will help you to keep the insulin resulting from your sugar intake controlled.
