After a few solid days of sub-5 degree weather and 4pm sunsets, there’s no denying that winter is officially here. And while unfortunately hibernation is not an option, preparing our body’s and more importantly our immune systems for what comes with this change in season definitely is.
FFF’s Wellness Package has been designed to boost energy levels, support and build a healthy immune system, as well as promote overall wellbeing through good nutrition. And if you need a little convincing, here are the top 5 reasons our Wellness plan is the perfect winter prep:
(1) It’s Flexitarian
The inclusion of one vegetarian meal per day featuring high protein wholegrains, legumes and dairy, as well as antioxidant-packed and fibre-rich seasonal vegetables is not only a great way to cut back on your meat consumption, it has major benefits to your health. Studies have shown that flexitarians have lower BMIs, as well as a lower risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease.
(2) A little meat goes a long way
Meat is an important component of a well-balanced diet when eaten in moderation and derived from the best possible sources. Our dinner-style meat-based meal includes lean protein sources such as grass-fed beef, free-range chicken and sustainably sourced fish. This ensures that you are receiving adequate sources of Vitamin B12, a vitamin crucial for enzyme production, hormonal balance, and maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.
(3) Bone Broth: The new soup-er food
It’s a case of ‘mother knows best’ with this age-old remedy and current trend beverage. Not only is bone broth nutrient-dense and rich in flavour, it is the ultimate immune system boost, packing a punch in terms of essential minerals. At FFF, we like to go above and beyond, with our expert team of chefs employing specialist cooking methods to maximise the availability of these nutrients, creating a delicious, highly nutritious broth to include in your daily routine.
(4) Balance is best
Taking in to account your specific requirements, the wellness plan provides a balanced macro split of 30% protein, 30% carbohydrates and 40% fat. A focus on providing adequate sources of Omega-3 fats from protein and vegetables promotes optimal hormone production and healthy organ function. This coupled with a variety of complex carbohydrates ensures that your body is fuelled with a good dose of vitamins and minerals to promote optimal health and wellness.
(5) The WHOLE package
It’s the whole way or the high way! An assortment of seasonal, fresh wholefoods with anti-inflammatory properties is the key to boosting and maintaining a healthy immune system. Our wellness menu will ensure that your diet is full of antioxidant and mineral packed fruits, seeds and green leafy vegetables and void of processed, highly-refined nastys, giving your body the tools it needs to function at its best!
Winter weather can take quite a toll on our minds and bodies. Our wellness package focuses on delivering a balance of nutrient-dense foods that provide the building blocks for a healthy immune system. This in turn contributes to a strong body and an overall feeling of mental and physical wellness, proving there’s more than one way to keep the doctor away!
