A BALANCED MENU FOR A PERFECT DAY
We present our proposal of a balanced menu:
A glass of water to hydrate and calm the sensation of hunger. You can also try an anti-ageing elixir with half a lemon and a tablespoon of olive oil.
As complete as possible. It should include vitamins, low-fat dairy, protein, and carbs. A good and tasty option? Wholegrain toast with scrambled eggs and salmon. And fresh fruit, lots of it!
The ideal snack to satiate hunger is a piece of fruit. You can add 5 or 6 natural almonds. If you’re into salty, have some protein, like tuna or a ham and cheese roll.
Time to have an energizing dish to take you through the remainder of the day, without too many calories. Ideal: a chickpea salad or cooked lentils. And a low-fat yoghurt for dessert!
When hunger hits in the afternoon, eat! If you’re going to the gym later, choose a banana or a cereal bar. If you won’t be exercising, a fruit or a piece of dark chocolate will do nicely.
It must be healthy and light, centred on protein. A portion of baked oily fish, accompanied by steamed vegetables is the ideal dish. And to finish: a relaxing herbal tea and a couple of ounces of dark chocolate.
Before going to sleep, take a stroll to clear your mind and help with digestion.
Furthermore, it is recommended that you drink water or fruit juices, prepared with water and without sugar, half an hour before eating, to aid digestion, and at least 1 hour after eating, so as not to interrupt the digestion of solid foods. It’s also important to drink a glass of water as soon as we wake up, then let 15 to 20 minutes pass before having breakfast. Throughout the day, when our stomach is “empty”, is another great time to drink a glass of water, as is right before going to sleep, although you should reduce the amount to half a glass, or less, to avoid having to get up in the middle of the night, interrupting valuable sleep.
