Healthy Dinner

Healthy dinner: make this a conscious meal for healthy benefits

Healthy dinner: a healthy life – every choice we make impacts directly our sleeping hours’ quality and our body’s processes involved during that period

Dinner for a healthy body

Healthy dinner is about conscious food choices. During the week, the rush hours make this difficult. And during weekends, what about our resting and leisure hours?

So to help you start having healthy meals, we have consulted international lecturer, physician and nutritionist Dr.Sorrentino. and also World Health Organization

(https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/healthy-diet, https://www.who.int/behealthy/healthy-diet, https://www.who.int/nutrition/publications/nutrientrequirements/healthydiet_factsheet/en/) to gather some useful guidelines. 

Why?

Usually after 6p.m., our body begins to slow down our metabolism and starts to get ready for sleeping hours. Hence, all we eat a couple of hours before we go to bed impacts and is impacted by this.

What to avoid

Healthy dinner demands us to avoid (or at least try) some types of food to help our “nightly metabolism”:

  1. Fatty food
  2. Red meat
  3. Yellow cheeses
  4. Fried food
  5. Caffeine
  6. Sweets
  7. Processed carbohydrates

All these types of food demand more energy from our digestive system and/or raises our blood sugar levels. Remember that our metabolism is on a different pace. 

Healthy dinner – what to include

For a healthy dinner, you must include food that helps your body to prepare for a good healthy sleeping period. This quality is necessary for the reestablishment and balance of all body functions. This does not mean giving up flavour in your menu:

  1. Fruits – practical and has frozen pulp options. Rich source of vitamins, minerals, fibers, antioxidants. In juice versions, you can add oak milk or chia.
  2. Vegetable soap or cream – healthy and with low calories. You can add pieces of chicken, a good source of protein.
  3. Vegetable pasta – you can use zucchini or pupunha palm heart. Use natural sauces  or dressings, like tomato sauce. 
  4. Salads – endless options, all rich in nutrients. Mix colors to obtain maximum health benefits. You can add boiled egg, also a good source of protein

Always consult your physician and/or nutritionist.
