Our Superfoods and the sorcery behind it
What is healthy eating all about?
We always read about lifestyle changes, diets and self-care routines to be inspired to eat healthy, exercise more, reduce stress, have more energy and feel good about ourselves.
Have you just begun your journey to a healthier lifestyle too? Some of the questions you would look up on the internet is what you should be eating, what nutrients are all about. We’ve put together a few facts you need to know, terms you would come across while doing your research into a quick read to help you get started on your journey.
Here’s what we need to ask ourselves when we start this journey-
What is the end goal?
The end goal has always been – to seek health and beauty from within, to be able to power through a hectic day and have the energy to do those little tasks that we love, to protect our body from falling sick, get good sleep at night to do this all over again during the day. And how do we aim to do it? – re-evaluate our lifestyle and food habits and give our body the right fuel (nutrient rich foods) it needs to run all day, because it deserves the best kind!
Now let’s talk about a few terms we come across. We often come across the term ‘Superfoods’.
- What are Superfoods and what makes them ‘Super’?
There are many foods, from fruits to herbs to veggies, protein, dairy, nuts and grains that are considered SUPER because they are packed with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and fibers that keep your body protected from toxins, diseases and regulates sleep, energy and your activity every-day! Some popular ones are Acai berries, goji berries, banana, strawberry, ginger, moringa, spirulina, seaweed, flax seeds, lentils and more. Have you noticed these superfoods in your grocery store nearby and most importantly, in your grocery list?
- Holistic approach to health
Just exercising or having merely one superfood a day wouldn’t be enough to take care of your body. It’s a way of listening to your body when it reacts to foods and decide what it needs best.
Here comes the most important part –
How do you stick to it?
This is when we take a step back and ask ourselves questions as to why we are doing this for ourselves. This is also a perfect reminder to look for progress in this slow and steady climb.
- Have you cut down on processed food / junk food lately?
- Are your meals dense with nutrients and superfoods?
- How much of dairy and animal products are you consuming and how is your body reacting to it?
- Does your food have added sugars?
- Where is the food on your plate coming from?
What’s the catch?
Here’s the catch- do we really stop in the middle of a hectic day to reflect on what we’re eating? How do we make sure we are giving our body enough nutrition while we are occupied with multiple tasks throughout the day? Moreover, the most important question is – Are we really getting enough nutrition from eating just one or two organically sourced food?
Once we began asking ourselves all these questions, we realized what it is that we love doing. The answer was simple, we love taking care of ourselves and that made us feel good and we found a way to help others through this path towards better health. This is how CosMix came to be.
We began sourcing herbs, fruits, nuts and petals and made powdered forms of these plant-based foods to tackle all issues we face with our lifestyle. With the right commitment to take just one-two tbsp everyday with our simple meals, juices, milk or even just water, we found a way to help people practice self-care without getting overwhelmed with an elusive diet plan or without relying on intensive beauty focused supplements. CosMix sources powerful herbs like Ashwagandha, Maqui berry, Ginseng, Maca root, Jatamanshi that provide different benefits to target specific nutritional needs for sleep, energy, gut health, immunity, skin and hair and build a more resilient body from within.
We’re thankful for an ever-growing community who practice self-care through holistic health with CosMix as a part of their routines. Here’s how you can join and get started - https://cosmix.in/collections/shop
