Hello food lovers! Eating has always been our favorite hobby, isn’t it? However, have you ever cared about your body after consuming to much high cal and high fat foods? Sometimes, we, as foodies, eat all of those tasty foods as much as we want; tasting the foods from one place to another places at one day (me do!). Without balancing our diet and lack of exercise, we could suffer from high cholesterol and heart disease!
How to prevent those diseases without sacrificing our hobby?
Nature Treats gets the solution for us! They offer you granola, 100% organic fruit and organic vegetable juices, and almond milk which are good for our health. Not only healthy, but also yummy!
What is granola?
Granola has been so popular as snack and breakfast since many people start to eat granola along with nuts and fresh-cut fruit pieces. It is composed of rolled oats which are baked until crispy and used as snack. Some companies use granola for energy-boosting snack bar for people who are in rush and have no time for a proper breakfast.
By eating granola everyday, it may help to lower the cholesterol level and prevent certain chronic diseases, such as heart disease and cancer; regulate digestion, aid in weight loss attempts, improve your heart health, increase energy, prevent anemia and promote proper organ function. Regular intake of granola could also help to increase cognitive activity, improve skin quality, build stronger bones, manage diabetes, stimulate new tissue and hormonal growth.
Each variation of granola has a slightly different nutritional value. Some may have more sugar, fat, calories or protein, depending on the ingredients. The granola from Nature Treats is made from whole grain…..
Nutritional Value of Granola
A 1/2-cup serving of homemade granola contains 5.5 grams of fiber, which is 22 percent of the daily value of 25 grams of fiber for people who follow a 2,000-calorie diet. The fiber in granola makes the body feel full since it bulks up food and absorbs water. Therefore, it reduces appetite and inhibits the release of ghrelin, which is the hormone that makes the body feel hungry. This can help to prevent overeating, which is common for obese people, as well as those on diets which leave them hungry at unusual times of the day.
Contains polyunsaturated fatty acids
A serving of granola gives you about 4 grams of monounsaturated fatty acids and about 4 grams of polyunsaturated fatty acids. These two forms of fat may help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and reduce inflammation
Good source of vitamins and minerals
The oils, nuts and seeds in granola provide vitamin E, thiamin, and folate. Granola contains almost every mineral essential to your health. Magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium are present in the highest percent of your daily needs. They are essential for the formation of connective tissues, red blood cells and bones. They also help to maintain healthy immune, nervous and cardiovascular system function; aid in regulating the thyroid; and contribute to proper healing.
Dos & Don’ts
Calorie count is only one piece of the nutritional puzzle. When you’re looking for a healthy granola, do avoid varieties with high amounts of sugar and fat—particularly saturated fat—per serving. However, don’t look for fat-free or sugar-free granola. Many nutritious ingredients, such as nuts, seeds and dried fruit, contain varying amounts of natural sugar and healthy fats that come along with plenty of vitamins and minerals. To play it safe, eat granola that is sweetened only with dried fruit, honey or maple syrup, and that has at least 20 percent of the recommended daily value for fiber. Good fiber content makes.
Nature Treats’s Products and Me
I usually eat the granola with the low fat milk and fruit pieces. You can add the almond milk or the fruit juice. I don’t like eating granola with plenty of high-sugar fruit pieces and yoghurt because it means that you add more sugar in your bowl. The more sugar you add, the more calorie you gain. So, do eat granola the way it is with milk or juice.
I suggest you to try on the 100% organic almond milk. It tastes so good! The almond aroma is mild, but no ‘beany’ aroma. The taste is similar to soya milk, but milder. It’s better to drink it with the salted caramel granola.
The 100% organic fruit juice is also tasted good and so fresh! It is made from strawberry and pineapple. Sweet and sour into one. Better to drink it every morning or afternoon. I drink juice every day in the morning, more specifically in brunch time. It could help you to lessen your hunger, thus maintaining your weight and body shape.
