Superwomen Go Beyond With Superfoods

 

March is the month of empowerment! In conjunction with International Women’s Day and Nutrition Month, La Juiceria’s nutritionist, Zalikha Razali is sharing her tips on including Superfoods to your daily diets.

‘Go Further With Food’ is this year’s National Nutrition Month theme for 2018. The foods you choose can make a real difference, whether it’s starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event. . The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has put together all kinds of resources to help promote good nutrition. Do make sure the food that you are taking for your body is really good for you!

Here are a few other tips to “Go Further with Food” from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:

  1. Include a variety of healthful foods from all of the food groups on regular basis. Remember to include carbohydrates, protein and fats.
  2. Include Superfoods into your diet to get good nutritional value
  3. Be mindful of portion sizes. Eat and drink the amount that’s right for you, as MyPlate encourages us to do. ½ vegetables, ¼ carbohydrate and ¼ protein
  4. 4.Find activities that you enjoy and be physically active most days of the week
  5. Realize the benefits of healthy eating by consulting with a registered dietitian nutritionist. RDNs can provide sound, easy-to-follow personalized nutrition advice to meet your lifestyle, preferences and health-related needs
  6. Consider the foods you have on hand before buying more at the store.
  7. Continue to use good food safety practices.

Superfoods are foods mostly plant-based but also some fish and dairy thought to be nutritionally dense and thus good for one’s health. Superfoods are also known as health boosters as they contain strong sources of vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients. They are pack with nutrients that are good for your body and can help reducing your risk of heart disease, memory loss, and other health problems.

Here are some list of superfoods!

  1. Raw nuts

          When eaten in moderation, raw nuts are a great addition to your diet. Raw almonds, walnuts, cashews, and other nuts provide a hearty dose of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. They’re also loaded with vitamins and minerals, such as iron, magnesium, and calcium.

  1. Berries

          Strawberries, blueberries, and cranberries are loaded with fiber, vitamins, and plant compounds (phytochemicals) that help widen arteries, which helps blood to flow smoothly. They are also rich in antioxidants, low fat, free of saturated fat, and a good source of fiber and vitamin C. That is why they are said to help lower your risk of developing chronic diseases and studies suggest blueberries may even improve memory!

  1. Quinoa

            Quinoa is one of the most protein rich foods. You can substitute with quinoa for white rice or pasta when you’re trying to add more fiber and nutrients to your diet. It, easy to digest, gluten-free, and high in protein and useful if you have type 2 diabetes. It provides as much protein as a bowl of rice, without spiking your blood sugar. For your information, quinoa is one of the only grains or seeds that provides all nine essential amino acids our bodies can’t produce themselves!

  1. Salmon

            Salmon is high in Omega-3 fatty acids and is a great source of protein. It is low in calories and saturated fat and it is also high in B vitamins and good source of Potassium! Salmon may reduce the risk of heart disease and may benefits for weight control

  1. Green tea

 This ages old health secret has been used as a natural remedy for everything from cancer to heart disease because green tea leaves contain the compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This antioxidant is believed to have several health benefits.

There are so many other superfoods you can take! Remember to include superfoods in your diet to get the benefits! There’s no one diet that is right for everyone, so it’s important to follow a healthful eating plan that’s packed with tasty foods and that keeps your unique lifestyle in mind.

AND REMEMBER TO EAT RAINBOW!

Love W Chia Seed Limited Addition

watermelon_3-01

We introduce to you, the LIMITED ADDITION of our cold-pressed family, LOVE W! I know the name is the same with our previous Love W but the different is we add CHIA SEED! Curious what’s in it? It’s a perfect blend of delicious watermelon, beet root, apple and chia seed! This refreshing juice is not only pleasant to the taste buds, but has many health benefits in it as well. Watermelon is a rich source of lycopene, the carotenoid compound that gives watermelon their red colour. It is one of the important anti-oxidants for our body. A study conducted in South Korea has found that lycopene may benefit heart health by boosting our body’s natural antioxidant defences and protects against DNA damage (1). Lycopene also has cholesterol-lowering properties and blood pressure-lowering effect (2).


Why Chia Seeds?

chia-seeds-in-a-bowlChia seed give many benefit to our body. It is also one of the super foods. Why? Because it have ‘superpowers’ nutrients: Omega-3 essential fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins A, B, E, and D, as well as other key minerals. Like flax seeds, chia seeds are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids, with nearly five grams in a one-ounce serving. These fats are important for brain health and overall health.

According to researcher, chia seeds give you stable energy because of their great ratio of protein, fats and fibre combined with the fact that they’re low-carb. Chia seeds may help preventing cravings by making you feel full and overeating. This is because chia seed expend when in liquid, which help you to feel full and reduce your appetite. Other than that, chia is rich in fibre which absorbs large amounts of water and expands in the stomach. This make you feel full and slow the absorption of food. Adding some chia into your diet is good for your digestive health as it is high in fibre. Moreover, by taking chia, it is an easy way to make sure you’re getting a good amount of fibre.

Certain ethnic groups of central Mexico (ancient Aztec warriors) ate chia for their strength and stamina during battle. When you do intense workout, chia can help provide fat or fuel after the carbs burn off. You can even have them during continuous activity such as hiking or bicycling to really boost up your energy levels. Furthermore, they can provide tissue repairing protein after workout and improves exercise performance. Chia seeds is a great pre-workout fuel because it keep you hydrated and functioning at your best.

Healthiest New Year’s Resolutions

Its almost 2018! Happy New Year! It’s a great time to start on your health goals for the year. Setting achievable goals is key to your success. Plan wise and make checklist to achieve it! Here are some healthy New Year’s Resolution 😆

 

  1. Get more sleep

Sleep is where the body’s time to rest, regenerate and repair. It can make you fresh, increase health and even strengthen your memories. Oh, and sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your skin. That is why we hear, “beauty sleep”.

 

  1. Take more of “Me” time

Do allow yourself to have “me” time to do things that you like. Is it ok to say “NO” sometimes to have more for your own time. Whether it’s for getting structured, doing a solo workout, or just a walk by your own at mall or park

 

  1. Cut your stress

Chronic stress can increase risk or worsen insomnia, depression, obesity, heart disease or even commit suicide. Long working hours, not enough sleep, no exercise, poor diet, and not spending time with family and friends are the factors to develop stress. Make sure you have enough rest so that you’ll save yourself time and money by keeping yourself happy and healthy.

 

  1. Save money

Cook at home instead of going out to eat. This will just not saving your money but it will impact on your health too. By cooking your own food, you’ll know what’s going into your food. There are a number of changes that will not only save you money, but help you live a healthier life.

 

  1. Consume more vegetables and fruits

Choose to go meatless on Mondays for a healthy start of the week. Try to add 5-7 servings of vegetables and fruits to your diet per day instead of focusing with one diet. Swap your fizzy sodas or heavily-sugared drinks with natural options like fresh juices. Of course, one of the easiest way to consume a variety of vegetables and fruits is through cold-pressed juices. Whether you make it at home or buy from shops, just get into the habit!

 

  1. Involve in physical activities

Make an effort to involve in physical activities at least 30 minutes, three times a week. Start slowly and increase gradually. You may start from walking to breeze walking then to jogging and running. Try to participate in fun run event, skating or cycling.

 

  1. Drink more water

The body is about 60% water and we’re constantly losing water from our bodies via urine and sweat. Many people forget to drink enough water. Remember to hydrate yourself by taking at least 8 glass of water. Drinking water helps you to:

  • Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue.
  • Promotes Weight Loss.
  • Flushes Out Toxins.
  • Improves Skin Complexion.
  • Maintains Regularity.
  • Boosts Immune System.
  • Natural Headache Remedy.
  • Prevents Cramps & Sprains.

 

  1. Lose weight

Almost every year people will have this target. Remember, it isn’t going to happen overnight. This need a lot of work and patient. This will need all the above points. Your mental need to be strong to keep on track towards healthy lifestyle. Sleep, foods and exercise plays important role in weight loss.

 

Follow us on social media to know the latest news and promotions – to help you stay healthy and happy throughout 2018.

Happy New Year!  :mrgreen:  

ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH FRUITS AND VEGGIES EVERY DAY?

According to Malaysian Dietary Guideline, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. We always hear this statement but what exactly does plenty mean? Five bowls of fruit? Six salads? Nine apples? Two sweet potatoes? How much is enough? Fruits and vegetables contain some of the most vital nutrients for our overall health, but how many of us are actually consuming the recommended amount of at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day? With our hectic lifestyles, it can be difficult to keep track of our daily fruit and vegetable needs. That’s why a bottles of La Juiceria juices is a great way to top up your nutrient intake every day.

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BODY WHEN YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH NUTRIENTS:

  1. Weak Immune system

Fruits and vegetables both provide antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. If you lack vegetables in your diet and the important vitamins they provide, your body may lack the defenses it needs to release free radical fighters against viruses

 

  1. Digestive Problems & Constipation

You could feel super bloated and uncomfortable. If you’re not eating enough fruits, you’ll likely feels there is excess gas in your stomach, causing the dreaded feeling of bloating. Vegetables are major sources of dietary fibre, which helps push waste efficiently out of your colon. Too much salt in your diet also leads to bloating. To counter this, eat fruits that are packed with potassium and drinking more water may help. The National Institutes of Health links low fibre intake to digestion problems that include constipation and diverticular diseases.

Benefits of  that found in fruits and vegetables:

  • Help push food through
  • Prevent constipation
  • Eliminate toxins
  • Improve immune function
  • Regulate appetite and blood sugar levels
  • Reduce cholesterol
  • Promote a healthy digestive system

 

  1. Diabetes

Weight gain is commonly related with diabetes. If you’re eating a lot of high-density foods instead of fruits and vegetables, you will probably gain unhealthy amounts of weight which may lead to be at risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes. Why would you destroy your own body system? Put down the junk food and grab a fruit or vegetable instead!

 

  1. Overweight

You might be eating higher-calorie foods that promote weight gain and nutrient imbalance. Fast food, heavy meat intake and sugar are common things in Malaysia, hence the country ranks high in obesity rates. Research in the US has shown that people who are overweight or obese eat less fruits and vegetables than normal-weight groups. Becoming overweight increases your risk for many chronic diseases. You can eat more and feel full and happy with fewer calories in fruits and vegetables because they are low in calories and high in energy density.

 

  1. Cancer Risk

While there is no specific food that can protect you from cancer, a diet that includes antioxidants may reduce cancer risks. Antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C, and carotenoids may reduce cancer risks by protecting healthy cells from free radicals. You can get antioxidants from kale, blueberries, blackberries and more. Don’t think by having these vitamins alone will help protect you from cancer risk because the other factors plays an important role as well. Practice a healthy lifestyle. Stop smoking and do regular exercises.

  1. Heart Disease

Eating lots of fruits and vegetables can reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke because of its effects in lowering blood pressure. A study has revealed that people who eat 8 or more fruits and vegetables a day are 30% less likely to have a heart attack or stroke.

 

  1. High Blood Pressure and Kidney Failure

Too much salt in the bloodstream reduces the ability of your kidney to remove water. It results to higher blood pressure and strains your kidney. Counter this with vegetables and fruits which are good natural sources of potassium, which has the opposite effect to salt and will help to lower the blood pressure. They are rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium, which helps reduce the sodium in your diet.

 

  1. Bleeding Gums, Anaemia and Fatigue

Fruits and vegetables contain some of the most vital nutrients for our health, eating too few can result in nutrient deficiencies which leads to scurvy, fatigue, anaemia, depression, bleeding gums and more! Yes, you can get these nutrients in other food, but fruits and vegetables contain high concentrations and are great sources of goodness!

START THEM YOUNG

Fruits and vegetables are vital for everyone’s health. Our likes and dislikes of foods are formed in the first few years of life, so it’s important to give children lots of fruit and vegetables to try. It will help them develop a taste for them, meaning they will be more likely to eat fruit and vegetables as teenagers and adults.

AN EASY WAY OUT!
It is important to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. La Juiceria juices is very convenient for those who have a tough busy lifestyle, especially if you’re not a fan of neither one! If you can’t eat it, drink it.


Did you know the Goodness Greens contain up to 1kg of vegetables?

YES! YES! I know it’s a lot! By drinking 1 bottle, you can have close to 1 kg of vegetables goodness into your body!

Trust me, the first sip will make you want to drink more! Not only is the juice full with a delicious flavour, it’s also rich with anti-oxidants like Vitamins A, B6, C, and E.
