Eat more of – variety #eatmoreof
Part of the issues with current eating habits is the lack of variety and boredom in our diet. We are constantly advised to eat a combination of different food groups (macronutrients) such as carbohydrates, fats and proteins, but sometimes we tend to eat the same food too often. Of course, these are essential to include in our diet as they provide our body with the vital energy to live, repair and function.
The process our body undertakes in changing food to energy (metabolism) is via an integral complex system of chemical synergies and transformation, necessary to provide a variety of nutrients required by every cell in our body. Considering we are made up of trillions of cells, you can understand why it is so important to choose our food wisely!
This month we have launched #eatmoreof – focusing on introducing variety into our diet, every week we post on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter a particular type of food, explaining why it is good for us and ways to include it in our diet.
The objective is to entice you to try new foods and become more adventurous! Perhaps they are foods you have never thought of eating before, but once you realise the potential mental and physical benefits these foods provide, we hope you will indulge!
You may be pleasantly surprised how your taste buds are stimulated and discover your appreciation of novice flavours.
We would love to hear about your new food experiences, so do head over to our social media platforms every Monday for the weekly #eatmoreof and please share your reactions with us!
