Fall Feeding

Alimentación de Otoño
We all know how important it is to eat a healthy and balanced diet, but we are not always well informed about which seasonal foods we should include in our daily diet and which, obviously, change with each season. Autumn forces us to face the rhythm of daily life, the return to work and strict schedules. We also have to adapt our bodies to the change of time and to much shorter days that take away our vitality and sometimes cause asthenia. A balanced diet that provides us with sufficient energy and nutrients that strengthen our immune system will prevent us from the tiredness and apathy so often associated with the change of season.

What foods should we eat?

Fruits To adapt to the new season, seasonal foods loaded with nutrients and vitamins to protect us and, at the same time, give us maximum energy, will not be missing on our table. Fill your shopping basket with grapes, pears, apples, bananas, berries (blackberries, blueberries, currants) and pomegranates because their natural season is in autumn. Pomegranate is very low in calories thanks to its high water content. Some of its most notable components are citric acid (disinfectant action and vitamin C enhancer), malic acid, flavonoids (pigments with antioxidant action) and tannins. The latter are substances with astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. The grape stands out for its antioxidant properties, such as anthocyanins, flavonoids and tannins. The fruits of the forest (blackberries, blueberries, currants...) concentrate a large amount of antioxidants and are recommended on a daily basis. Vegetables Mushrooms and mushrooms, eggplants, carrots, leeks, onions, lettuces and endive and all types of cabbage... The mushrooms are low-calorie foods. They contain ergosterol, a substance located in plant tissues that can be transformed into vitamin D. In addition, they have good amounts of B vitamins and are a source of some minerals such as iodine. The eggplant stimulate the proper functioning of the liver and facilitate the emptying of the gallbladder, thus promoting the digestion of fats. The cabbages in all their varieties - cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, etc. - are rich in vitamin C and citric acid, which enhances vitamin C action. All of them, to a greater or lesser extent, have phytochemicals (glucosinolates and isothiocyanates) with antioxidant and anticarcinogenic action, and stimulating the defense system. Your skin will benefit from a diet rich in nutrients and vitamins, but do not forget to moisturize it twice a day by mixing our Silk Confort Body Emulsion from Sensory Nature with a few drops of Argan Oil morning and evening.
