What if we finally make peace with the contents of our plate by learning to enjoy the simple pleasures of healthy eating? A balanced diet is not synonymous with restriction, quite the contrary! Let's forget our prejudices and put aside preconceived ideas and go back for a moment to some golden rules of healthy and delicious food. Our diet must provide us with the nutrients we need to be healthy and feel fit. We usually feel a boost of energy when we eat good food, so why deprive ourselves of it! Discover 5 golden rules that are easy to apply on a daily basis.

Drink enough water

We can never repeat it enough and yet the body needs it. When you feel the sensation of thirst it is because the body is already dehydrated and wants you to drink. Moisturizing well with at least 2 litres of water per day plays a fundamental role in our general condition. Water ensures the transit of dissolved substances essential to human cells, it allows the elimination of metabolic waste, maintains a constant temperature inside the body... and many other vital things as you will have understood.

Eat fruits and vegetables

You certainly have - like many people - the slogan "eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day" in mind. And that's good; it should resonate within us at each of our meals so we don't forget them. They bring taste and colour to all our dishes. Above all, fruits and vegetables are a source of vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants and energy. However, they are low in calories, which make it possible to satisfy the hungry without fear for the silhouette. There are also many ways to cook them. Raw or cooked, baked, steamed, seasoned... there are countless variants.

Think of the good fats

You still think eating fat is not good for your body!? It is a conviction that needs to be reviewed as soon as possible. While eating too much saturated fat (bad fat) can have devastating effects on the body, unsaturated fat (good fat) is essential for our body. A source of omega 3 and 6, they meet many of the recommended daily needs and have taste. Vegetable oils, nuts and seeds, avocados, salmon, trout, mackerel, sardines, herring... are foods rich in unsaturated fats to eat in sufficient quantities for a balanced diet.

Eat a variety of foods

To bring the best things to your body, remember to vary your diet. You can buy new your dishes, test new things, use cuisines from all over the world. Each culture has its own set of good ideas to pick to boost the content of your plate. Think also of spices to make the simplest dishes a real pleasure to taste.

Limit industrial sugars

Try to eat as much natural sugars as possible, such as honey or maple syrup. Refined sugars must be consumed in limited quantities because they can be very harmful to our health. It has also been proven through various studies that a real sugar addiction exists. The more you eat, the more you want. Of course, eating it from time to time to treat yourself to a little something sweet is nice, but try to make sugar-free days from time to time.
