    Tips for a wholesome travel

    One of our hobbies is travelling and we go on trips a few times a year. We love to explore new places with their local history, get to experience different cultures, traditions and ways of thinking, and most of all, we value the family time we get from travelling. Since we eat plant-based at home and like to keep a wholesome lifestyle even on trips, we always plan ahead many details of the trip.       Pack your own airplane food We do not own a car, so whenever we travel we mostly go by plane. Sometimes we rent a campervan or take the train. However, regardless of the…

    The significance of movement and exercise for the body

    Everywhere we look around us, we see advertising campaigns about the health benefits of moving and doing exercise. Colorful, visibly displayed, beautifully designed advertising banners about yoga, Pilates or tai chi classes, the next fitness center around the corner, even a walking retreat in the Swiss Alps attract everyone’s attention for a moment. It’s a fact: we are not a sedentary species by nature, on the contrary, we are a very active one. Moving our bodies daily and regularly is vital for our mental and physical health. Movement is one result of the constant energy flow that courses through our bodies as a biological norm of our existence. Movement affects…

    5 significant reasons to buy organic

    When my clients consult me on what foods they should eat, I always tell them: whole, seasonal, natural and organic. I always insist on being organic. The reason why is that foods that have been grown and produced organically have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts. The non-ingestion of chemicals and preservatives helps lessen, even make disappear, symptoms that people with allergies, intolerances or sensitivities to food have. It also helps reduce the hard work the liver performs of metabolizing and eliminating these substances. And last but not least, just as these two aspects of organic consumption – decreased intake of contaminants and increased intake of…

    Essential benefits of chewing properly

    I like to be an avid observer and analyst of the information that is published regarding nutrition and any other information relating to the topic. Quality, quantity, and sources of cultivation and the production of foods are the main subjects. Whether we buy organic or not, whether the organic label went through the entire evaluation and examination phase of the certification process are two commonly discussed topics. Whether we should eat this or that depending on our personal needs, and whether we should count calories and measure the number of grams we eat or not are also commonly discussed ones. Most of the information is based around what we eat,…

    Why changing eating habits is challenging

    One of the most important milestones we need to be fully aware of in developing healthy eating habits is learning how to develop and establish steady ones. As human beings we always learn and develop habits by repeating patterns and establishing routines that help us structure our daily lives. We are driven to seek them because they’re predictable, and predictable means safe. We like to automate many of these too in order to fully concentrate on ways of developing our skills and carry out tasks like learning, studying, working, socializing, reading, etc. For example we eat to obtain the fuel we need to function properly. Almost never, we stop to…
