Ice Cream

With summer in full swing many of us are looking for a refreshing treat like ice cream. Today we have a few tips for healthy ice cream options so that you can stay on track while enjoying summer!

And if you want to enjoy ice cream bought in the supermarket, we have the following tips for you:

1. For a homemade ice cream, puree a portion of frozen fruits with a hand blender or mixer.

2. The shorter the list of ingredients, the better. An organic ice cream is usually more expensive, but for a taste experience without additives, it is worth spending a few cents more.

3. Information on high-quality processing can also be found in phrases such as “without colorings, additives and flavorings” or “only natural ingredients”. 

4. Avoid plastic spoons and cups as much as possible and, like this, ensure clean ice cream enjoyment!

Weighing Foods

With Metabolic Balance, the foods are weighed so that everyone eats exactly the amount that is optimal for his or her respective metabolism. In this way, the body receives exactly the concentration of nutrients it needs to get back into balance. In the course of the metabolic conversion, the participants increasingly detach themselves from weighing the food, as they are increasingly aware of when their body has enough.

Spinach

Spinach is a dark, leafy green vegetable that originated from central and western Asia. It contains high-quality protein, fiber, and 10 different vitamins and 13 different minerals. Its bitter substances support the entire digestion and also act as a tonic for the heart, liver and nerves. Its content of chlorophyll, folic acid, iron, copper and valuable enzymes strongly promotes the formation of both red and white blood cells, which has a strong influence on the immune system. The carotenoids in spinach protect the skin and mucous membranes and also strengthen the eyes.
Since spinach contains an above-average amount of oxalic acid, which blocks the absorption of calcium, one should preferably avoid eating milk or dairy products at the same meal, but choose a different source of protein.

Vitamin D

Also known as the “sunshine vitamin”, Vitamin D is one of the many important vitamins and minerals that the human body needs. This fat soluble vitamin is produced in the skin when exposed to sunlight, which is the reason why we often say that you can get your vitamin D outside! Vitamin D can also be found in small amounts in foods including salmon, egg yolks, and fortified foods such as milk. In the body, this vitamin is vital for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and for immune system function. So the next time the sun is shining, go outside and enjoy the sunshine, knowing you are doing something good for your body!
