“There’s no greater wealth than your health”.

As far as popular sayings go, this one couldn’t be more relevant than it is in 2017.

With our modern world becoming increasingly connected, it seems the pressures of a fast-paced lifestyle increase on the daily but our commitment to looking after ourselves often falls in third or forth place as a priority. This leads us to a very simple question: would you still be able to give time and energy to the people and things you love if illness or disease came into the equation?

Dr. Francesco Branca, World Health Organisation’s Director of Nutrition says: “Nutrition is one of the most important contributors to human health. In addition to managing weight, blood pressure and cholesterol, a healthy diet can help prevent and manage a number of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some cancers.”

But we’ve got good news, guys. With just a few simple daily diet choices you can increase your health and well-being when you embrace Foundational Food: How To Eat Your Way To Healthy!

You don’t need to go from zero to hero overnight, but try to include some of the following foods into your daily diet and feel the goodness from the inside out…

Rediscover Red
Reach for produce in colours of red, purple and blue such as berries, blueberries, purple carrots, red cabbage, red apples and beetroot. All delicious and all packed with antioxidants to protect against cancer, heart disease, and inflammation

Bounce Into Your Day With Breakfast
Studies show if you enjoy a healthy breakfast you’ll move more during the day, burning more calories and aiding mental clarity. Choose a breakfast like our Sumo Breakfast Bowls, packed with protein, whole grains, fresh greens and avocados to prevent heart disease, stroke and cancers.

Take The Pledge For More Fruit & Veg
A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect on blood sugar which can help keep appetite in check. Reach for apples and pears, citrus fruits, salads and green leafy vegetables such as spinach, lettuce and chicory broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. 

Anti-Inflammatory Is A+
Many major diseases that plague us (including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer’s) have been linked to chronic inflammation. Battle inflammation with tomatoes, olive oil, green leafy vegetables, nuts, salmon, strawberries, blueberries and oranges.
