Have You Ever Tried Superfood Powders? Pros and Cons of Energy Boosts
It often happens to feel down, especially during stressful moments or when the work routine is particularly tough. A great help comes from nutrition.
A varied diet rich in fresh and seasonal foods, lots of veggies and fruits and a moderate daily physical activity are good habits which, in the long period, can improve your energy. But when you need an extra help, using superfood powders is a great idea!
Find out the pros and cons of energy boosts (and which ones you can find at Plato’s)!
Superfood and protein powders? Yes, please!
We’ve already talked about the strategic importance of proteins in our daily nutrition. Proteins are our main source of energy and they are essential for the good functioning of your body.
They are more than simple “bricks” at the basis of your muscles. Proteins regulate the hormonal system, the immune system and the transmission of substances in the blood circulation. Moreover, they improve lean body mass.
The World Health Organization states that the ideal amount of proteins to assume every day corresponds to 1 gr per kilo of body weight. In addition to this, they should be consumed in the three main daily meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Green light, then, to a breakfast of eggs and smoked salmon, or meat with veggies, fruits and some whole carbs. Too much for you?
The classic Italian breakfast (croissant or any other sweets, with cappuccino) is quite low in proteins, but rich in sugars and carbs. For many people it is difficult to change their habits and switch to a savoury breakfast. How can you assume more proteins?
This is when superfood and natural protein powders come to your aid!
If used in the right way, these products can add proteins and other important nutrients to your daily diet, so as to improve your energy levels and general well-being.
The pros are numerous: more energy, more vitamins and you’ll feel fuller, thanks to the extra amount of proteins.
When you don’t have time to spend cooking, but your body needs an energy boost, superfood powders are a great help to keep you fit and strong. And it’s fast and easy to integrate them in your meals!
For what concerns cons…there are none! The important thing is to keep in mind what energy boosts really are, that is nutritional supplements, and not substitutes for fresh foods!
To feel good and in balance, you need to assume them together with a varied diet, rich in seasonal foods, whole carbs, fruits and veggies, and animal or vegetable proteins.
