Quinoa is an excellent source of amino acids, proteins and minerals.

Did you know that quinoa is so beneficial to our bodies that it was even included in NASA’s diet? So it is! This vegetable, which can be found in a variety of forms, has more than 20 different amino acids, including methionine and lysine. In addition, it helps to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) due to the presence of fiber and saponins that are good in the food shell. For vegetarians, it is an excellent alternative to meat due to its high protein value. It also brings B-complex vitamins – essential for the nervous system -, zinc – which helps the immune system – and carbohydrates. A complete meal!

Trout is one of the healthiest fish for consumption

Trout is a species of freshwater fish that only survives in very clean environments, so it has a very low risk of contamination. In other words, it is a great food to add to the diet, especially for children. One of the best known benefits is the presence of omega 3, which allows the proper functioning of brain activity and takes care of heart health, preventing blood clots and preventing cardiac arrhythmias. In addition to omega 3s, trout also help reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) levels while increasing good cholesterol levels and are rich in vitamins and proteins.

Yogurt is a versatile source of calcium

We know that calcium is one of the most important nutrients in our body. It is responsible for strengthening bones and teeth and preventing osteoporosis. And the good thing is that yogurt is one of the main sources for finding this component! Another advantage is that, in addition to the production of sauce, you can include yogurt for breakfast, afternoon snack, fruit, cereal or alone. In addition to calcium, it also helps regulate the bowel and prevent constipation as it is rich in probiotics – the famous live lactobacilli.
