Nutrition Week at Generate

June 5, 2017

Let’s face it: nutrition can be an overwhelming and at times, confusing, subject. Is sugar evil? Which carbs are best? Can green juice really give you super powers?

Nutrition is a broad-ranging, complex topic, and it can be challenging to even scratch the surface. While no one can claim to have all the answers, we can all still aim to find the best nutritional plan for our unique personalities, bodies and lifestyles.

A vegan diet may be best for your BFF, but paleo could be more your jam. And that’s totally okay!

This week at Generate, we’ll be breaking down a few of the most important components of a healthy diet. From fad diets to organic veggies, each day this week we’ll be sharing our favourite articles and tips so you can fuel your workouts effectively and live your best life!

To get you started, here are a few of our general guidelines for a healthy diet:

  1. It’s all about balance! Follow the 80/20 rule by sticking to healthy eating most of the time while still allowing yourself to splurge from time to time. If you practice everything in moderation, including moderation, you’ll never feel deprived or bored with your food.
  2. Eat tons of organic green veggies. If there’s one rule everyone in the nutrition community agrees on, it’s that green, leafy veggies are extremely healthy for everyone. Not only are veggies like spinach and kale packed full of vitamins and minerals, but they taste amazing as a side salad with any meal.
  3. Exercise! Regular exercise does more than keep your muscles toned and your heart healthy: it’s also likely to give you an appetite for fruits and vegetables that further improve your overall wellbeing, new research has found. At Generate, we offer a wide variety of classes from HIIT to yoga. Check out our schedule to find a class that works for you!

Follow along with us on social media this week as we unpack myths, share amazing healthy recipes and get motivated to eat a delicious, healthy diet together! What are your favourite nutrition tips and tricks? We’d love to hear from you!
