We all need water for optimal health as it is needed for many bodily functions to function properly.

never forget the protein

the famous proteins won the hall of fame in recent years, because people are more aware of their importance for a healthier life. As a macronutrient, protein needs to be consumed in relatively large amounts for our bodies to keep functioning. The Nutritionist Bruno, in his article, comments on the importance of (i) accelerating recovery after training and or injury, (ii) reducing muscle loss (catabolism), (iii) building “lean” muscles post training, (iv) Helping to maintain a healthy weight, (v) Inhibit hunger.

Bruno also indicated that he consumes several sources of protein, both vegetable and animal, and makes a list of 12 main protein sources: chicken breast, duckling, salmon, tuna, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggs, Greek yogurt, beans, lentil, quinoa, beak grain .

Abuse of fruits and vegetables

Fruits are great sources of vitamins, carbohydrates, minerals, fibers and water, contributing to our well-being, and still have a low caloric value. Among many benefits, they promote energy, help delay aging, reduce the feeling of satiety and balance the intestine.

The interesting thing is that you can “play” with the way you use fruits and vegetables. For example, you can make an orange, lemon, ginger, and mint juice; a green juice of cabbage, orange and beetroot; a smoothie of red fruits and granola. It's really good to do tests, try new flavors and aromas to increase our food repertoire.
