Thank You!

The situation due to the corona virus is very dynamic. It is unclear how the situation will develop further and we are grateful that nursing staff, doctors, employees of the waste disposal company, the post office and delivery services, retailers, and many more are heroically doing their jobs for ALL OF US – stay safe.

How do we get through COVID-19 (Corona Virus). Many aspects of personal hygiene and social distancing are on the forefront of our thoughts as well as are all of our (elderly) family members okay.
Our next thought should be directed towards the best way to strengthen the immune system – NOW is the ideal time for Metabolic Balance.
We want to encourage you to keep eating as planned. A diet according to Metabolic Balance not only provides lasting support for the immune system – our nutrition plans have also been proven to improve the quality of life.
Thus, see this time of renunciation as an opportunity – experience your optimized, tailor-made nutrition plan without distractions and without social and culinary obligations.
In this spirit we wish you all the best – stay healthy!

Happy World Water Day !

Today is World Water Day and we have a few facts about THE elixir of life – the human body consists of about 70% water and 99% of all metabolic processes take place in an aqueous environment. Thus, it is of course necessary that our body is supplied daily with the right amount of water. Healthy adults should drink at least 30 – 35 ml of water per kilogram of body weight (1 fl.oz for 2 lbs of body weight) daily. If it is difficult for you to drink “simply” water, then spice it up with mint or lemon. It is often easier to drink warm water, since it doesn’t quench your thirst. Simmer the water for 10-15 minutes – this can help in many different ways and support your well-being. Get used to carrying a water bottle with you at all times and drinking it in small sips throughout the day. This will ensure that you will be sufficiently hydrated throughout the day.

We need to keep smiling!

We are all in this together. Covid-19 is creating an unprecedented time right now for the whole world. With that uncertainty, comes pressures not just on our immune health to fight the virus but also pressures on our mental well-being. For immune support, essential nutrients such as vitamin C, zinc and vitamin D are our best friends. Rich sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits, berries, kiwi, green leafy veggies, broccoli and capsicum. For vitamin D it’s best to get your level tested and take a good supplement support especially given the potential home isolation which may be happening for you. For most people 2000 IU of vitamin D is an appropriate level to be taking but it’s always important to check this with your practitioner as to what’s right for you. Sources of zinc include seeds, nuts, meats, wholegrain and beans.
This time is an ideal time to focus on your Metabolic Balance food list. The right proteins, vegetables, fruits and carbs for you will be the best way to nourish your body for the best immune health overall and neurotransmitter balance – these are the chemical messengers in the brain that keep our emotions in the best place.
Remember, while you may need to isolate yourself physically from others, we need to ensure we don’t isolate emotionally and mentally. Check in with friends, family, neighbors, work colleagues regularly by phone, text, e-mail etc. Aim to have at least one virtual social interaction of some sort every day. Connection is vital to our health and well-being.

Julia Child: “… good food … from fresh ingredients”

Julia Child, a well-known American chef and cookbook author, once said: “You don’t have to cook any fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food made from fresh ingredients”. Metabolic Balance totally agrees. Cook quick, delicious and uncomplicated dishes from the ingredients on your nutrition plan and enjoy them!

Rye Pasta with Bolognese (meat sauce)

One of the favorite recipes for Phase 3 of the Metabolic Balance Program is our rye pasta with meat sauce (Bolognese)

What you’ll need:
1 serving ground meat (e.g., beef, pork, lamb, turkey – according to your plan)
1 serving vegetables (e.g., celery, carrots, onions)
½ tomato
250 ml vegetable broth
Spices & Herbs: salt, pepper, marjoram, oregano, rosemary

How to prepare and cook:
Brown onions in a little olive oil, add a sprig of rosemary, add the lean ground meat (according to your plan). When the meat is browned (approx. 10 minutes), transfer to a bowl and place aside. Using the same pan, add half of the finely chopped celery and grated carrots. Gently sauté for a few minutes and then add the tomato, vegetable broth and season with salt and a pinch of pepper. Allow to simmer gently for about 15 minutes. Puree with a stick blender (or in a blender), then return the meat to the pan. In a separate pan, brown the remainder of the carrot and celery – put everything together in one pan. Let everything simmer for another 30 minutes, season with oregano and marjoram (dried), fresh ground pepper and salt.

Starting in Phase 3 (when you are close to goal), you can also use 10 grams of whole grain rye pasta as a side dish. 1 slice of rye crisp bread counts for 10 g of whole grain rye pasta.
If you’re still in Phase 2 we recommend zucchini noodles (zoodles) instead of rye pasta.

Buon appetito!
