Tasty allies for the sportspersons

10-01-2020

When the snow falls, the tools are prepared: wax, skis, gloves, helmet, etc. Everything is ready for winter sports! But are we? And our body? 

A fundamental aspect is a nutrition and for a healthy and athletic body, micronutrients (minerals and vitamins) are very important for replenishing after physical effort and for optimizing performance.

Pseudocereals such as Buckwheat, Amaranth, Quinoa, are essential sources of micronutrients, as well as ensuring an excellent supply of proteins, carbohydrates, dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Furthermore, as regards the macronutrients, thanks to their complex carbohydrates they ensure an excellent energy supply with slow-release, while the amino acid composition of their proteins, characterized by a high content of lysine, makes the biological value of Buckwheat, Amaranth and Quinoa decidedly higher than that of other traditional cereals.

So why not prepare a hot soup, vegetarian meatballs, or buckwheat risotto after a beautiful day in the snow? Heat, taste, and health in one bite ;)
