Summer is nearby. We already feel the anxiety to leave early the office and catch the last rays of sun whether on a terrace, a quick surf or even a run outdoor.
It's gettin 'hot in here!
We dream about the weekend and an epic beach day.
There is a great tendency to go for something fresh and healthy when we prepare our lunch or snack to the beach. Fruit, sandwiches and tuna salads are at the top of the list.
The result is a dubious nutritional blend that results in a energy break at the end of the day. Do you know the expression "beach is good but gets you super tired"?
Arriving home after the beach
Have you thought well why does this happens?
When we think about preparing our snack or lunch to take, it must be practical and fast.
It is many hours in the sun and although you leave the beach with a beautiful tan, your immune system can suffer consequences, your levels of energy go down and the body is more dehydrated.
How to avoid?
1) Drink a lot of water
2) Avoid heavy meals
3) Avoid fatty foods like "Bolas de Berlim" or French fries
4) Opt for foods rich in vitamins and minerals
One of the sources of vitamin that we look for when we are exposed to ultraviolet rays is the famous vitamin D, present in all Mondays. It plays an important role in our bones. It is crucial in absorbing all the calcium we ingest and helps to tone our muscles.
If you are looking for a healthy alternative to lunch on the beach, Mondays is a good ally. They are easy to prepare meals, easy to digest, do not leave that boring belly feeling bloated and the best part is that you can take with you, just do not forget to mix with fresh water!
