Komvida Tip #1 for quarantine days

#I'm staying at home but eating right

As you know, since even before we were formed, our aim has always been to bring health and contribute to the wellbeing of everyone. Komvidaour aim has always been to contribute to the health and well-being of everyone. This task is much easier thanks to the amount of information we have nowadays. The truth is that we love to read about new trends and to be always up to date in the food sector... maybe that's why we discovered kombucha!

In these difficult times, we would like to recommend some foods for a balanced diet, which provide us with the nutrients we need and strengthen our immune system. So, for the days of quarantine, neither our diet nor yours should be lacking... ... :

- Fruit, vegetables and pulses

- Nuts and dried fruit

- Protein, either animal or vegetable

- Garlic, ginger and turmeric

- Fermented foods, such as yoghurt, aged cheese, sauerkraut, miso, kombucha and kefir

- Pickles

- Cocoa

In these days ahead of us, take the opportunity to learn about nutrition from the best. The Komvida team has prepared for you this selection of the best Instagram accounts and our favourite books and documentaries so you can learn to identify what your body needs at every moment. When this happens, we will feel stronger, healthier and also happier and more positive (which is not bad for these weeks): Enjoy!
