How to make the most of the beach

by Miguel Martins on May 15, 2019

Summer is at the door. We have already felt the urge to leave the office and catch the last rays of sun, whether on a terrace, a quick surf or even a run outdoors.

It's gettin 'hot in here!

We dream of the weekend and an epic beach day.

There is a great tendency to eat something fresh and healthy when we prepare our lunch or snack to eat on the beach. Fruit, fresh cheese sandwiches and tuna salads top the list.

The result is a dubious nutritional mix that results in a loss of energy at the end of the day. Do you know the expression “the beach is good but it gets tired”?


Getting home after the beach

Have you thought well why?

When we think about preparing our snack or lunch to take to the beach, it will have to be practical and quick.

There are many hours in the sun and although you leave the beach with a beautiful bronze, your immune system can suffer consequences, your energy levels go down and your body is more dehydrated.

How to avoid?

1) Drink plenty of water

2) Avoid heavy meals

3) Avoid fatty foods like berlin balls or fries

4) Opt for foods rich in vitamins and minerals

One of the vitamin sources 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 bone health. It is fundamental in the absorption of all the calcium we eat and helps to tone our muscles.

If you are looking for a healthy alternative to have lunch on the beach, Mondays is a good ally. They are easy to prepare meals, easy to digest, they don't leave that flat feeling of a swollen belly and the best part is that you can take it with you, just don't forget to mix it with fresh water!

Here's the tip!
