Calories - always a sensitive topic to bring up but it could be an important factor to your health. We are getting more and more used to seeing people around us do all sorts of things to change the way we look and the way we feel in our bodies. Miracle Diets, Scientifical methods, surgery, the perfect workout plan - the list goes on. Because of these extreme diets and methods, the word calories have become something that we rather not talk about. We hear people preaching about not caring about calories and focusing on quality food instead and on how you feel in your body. This is a beautiful point of view and we are all for it. If you focus on putting the right nutrients in your body and enjoying the foods that make you feel good - this will be glowing and flowing in your body from the inside and out.
In this article, we want to inform you what calorie awareness can do for you and your health. All things in life are good for you - in moderation. This applies to calorie counting too. Having a healthy awareness of the macronutrients that goes into your body is the absolute most efficient way to reach your health goal - especially if you wish to gain weight, loose weight or train for a certain goal. By doing this you can make the most of your intake and enjoy more nutritious food. If we don’t know where we “spend” our calories we might not be able to make the most of our intake. By starting to look into the nutrition of the food you eat in your day to day life you might learn something about your eating habits.
Our philosophy is that calorie counting and quality food goes hand in hand. They are best to be used in combination with one and other. Counting only calories and not thinking about what the food contains is not what you want - eating 1500 calories of sugar is not going to do any good.
This is why we have created a menu which tells you exactly what the meal contains and the nutritional value so that you can choose to be aware if that suits you. We want to make conscious and healthy eating easy, and we believe our menu makes it possible.
The quality of the food is vital to our health and our children's health, and it is time for us to start making a conscious decision to feed ourselves and our children with the best food that we can. It’s about our future - our children need fuel to grow and live a healthy life. All functions in the body are being developed during the years as a child and the lifelong health is set during these years. We quite often see children with all sorts of problems - and in some cases, it can be related to the nutritional intake. Don’t get us wrong, we know it’s not the easiest to get your little one to drink your green juice. But what we encourage you to do is finding the foods that they do like to eat and try to find the best version of that.
Because Food Quality Matters - Always!
