We review some benefits of the liquid gold of the Mediterranean gastronomy that you can not banish from your diet
Christmas leaves in our memory great memories: moments with family, colleagues, friends, gifts … But it also leaves us in the record some food excesses that cause, in thousands of cases, diets as a purpose of the new year.
It is usual to change habits. To stop consuming alcohol – or at least reduce it – is one of the most repeated wills at this time, as well as consuming more fruits and vegetables to the detriment of hypercaloric meals or with a medium-high fat content. However, among all foods there is one that is mandatory not to do without: Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The reason is none other than the many benefits it has for health: the polyphenols contained in the Aceite 1881 are the cause of its antioxidant power, as well as its vitamin content (A, D, E and K). In addition, it will facilitate weight loss thanks to oleylethanolamide, a substance that has a satiating effect.
But where do I use the 1881 Aceite in my diet?
It is important to start each day with a natural and healthy breakfast. So, if you are one of those who can not start the day without a toast, add a few drops of 1881 Oil to the bread, accompany it with two thin slices of fresh tomato and a slice of cooked turkey, and you will start each day taking care of yourself. You can also start the day with a couple of servings of fruit, try adding a little Aceite 1881 and use them in salads or crush them to make a healthy and nutritious juice. These juices are ideal, too, to drink in the middle of the morning or to have a snack.
Also, in the meals the salads will take great prominence in our post-Christmas diet. So, make your favorite with lettuce leaves, cherry tomatoes, seeds, cucumber and carrot, to end up spraying with Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1881 and a few drops of 1881 Sherry Vinegar.
Finally, at dinners we must banish a lot of food, so a chicken breast or grilled fish, cooked with a spoonful of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1881, will be great allies. Do not forget to season and, why not, spice up these dishes.
Do not forget to accompany your diet with a constant rhythm of physical exercise, which can range from walking for several hours a week, going daily to the gym or going for a run, depending on your possibilities.
