Post-Workout Whole Nutrition

Jul 13, 2016

In order to get the most out of being active, you need to eat properly to help your body recover from the wear and tear of exercise. Your body needs fuel after a workout in order to replenish and repair. Before working out, your body needs fuel – mainly carbohydrates – for energy. Since exercise stresses muscles and bones, getting the proper nutrition after your workout will help lessen stress injuries, restore energy, and leave you in a peak state. At Froozer®, we want to bring you information to help you thrive, which includes post-workout whole food guidelines.

Timing
Exercise puts stress on your muscles, joints, and bones. Post-exercise foods should put back what you’ve used up, and provide the raw materials needed for repair and healing. Not recovering properly can leave you weaker. It can also increase your injury risk. So if you’ve had a particularly hard workout, try to eat a recovery meal as soon as possible.

Beyond protein
The best workout foods should include good fats, plenty of nutrient-rich fruits and veggies, and a healthy source of starch such as quinoa, sweet potato, or beans. These foods help replenish nutrients that have been depleted, and provide energy to fuel your post-exercise metabolism. Protein is one of the building blocks of muscle, so it is important post exercise, but it is not the only nutrient needed.

Keep it Whole
Nutrients from the foods you eat are the foundation of the structure, function, and integrity of all your cells. Your body is continuously repairing, healing, and rebuilding itself. How healthy your new cells are is directly determined by how well you’ve been eating. So even if you’re lean and burn a lot of calories, avoiding highly processed food and eating a clean, nutrient-rich, whole foods diet can help you get the most out of your workouts.

Avoid Overcompensating
Even if you don’t eat treats after a workout, you may be tempted to sneak a little extra almond butter or be less mindful of portion sizes. Those extras can add up. If weight loss is one of your goals, it’s important to not overestimate how much extra food you "earned" while working out. If you’re going to be eating a meal within an hour of finishing up a workout, you don’t really need a post-workout bar or snack.

Rehydrate
If you sweat heavily, exercise in high humidity, or your workout lasts longer than an hour, you might need a sports drink rather than plain water during exercise. Sports drinks are designed to keep you well hydrated. They also provide electrolytes to replace those lost in your sweat. If your workouts are less strenuous, shorter, climate-controlled, or not so sweaty, plain water is fine. But beware of extra sugar!

At Froozer®, we believe whole foods are the key to health – your health and the health of our planet. Our frozen, whole-fruit smoothies are a perfect part of your post-workout meal. They are:  All Natural, Antioxidant Rich, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Non-GMO, Kosher, Naturally Low in Calories, and Vegan. Want to try them for yourself? You can buy them right here on our website, and we’ll ship them to you. You can also find them in various grocery stores such as Whole Foods (more stores here).

What Role does Fruit play in a Paleo Whole Foods Diet?

Jul 6, 2016

Although some may think that the Paleo Diet is a new fad, it has actually been around since the 1970s. It was conceived by gastroenterologist Walter Voegtlin with the idea that Paleolithic ancestors, who lived in a range of time from 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago, could teach modern humans how to eat healthy. Here at Froozer®, we understand the importance of whole foods diet education. We know there are lots of different diets promoted these days, and we want to keep you informed. We are committed to, not only information, but also to presenting natural products for your good health.

What is the Paleo Diet?  
The Paleo Diet – also known as the Stone Age, Caveman, or Ancient Diet – is an attempt to replicate the diet of humans of the Paleolithic age. These ancient hunter-gatherers lived before agriculture and subsisted on lean proteins.

The Paleo diet is said to improve health by providing balanced and complete nutrition while avoiding most processed and refined foods and empty calories. It is a nutrient-dense whole foods diet based on eating a variety of quality meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. 

Paleo Foods

The Paleo diet is a plant-based diet, with two thirds or more of the diet coming from plants and only one third from animals. Meat consumption is endorsed, because it provides vital nutrients not obtainable from plant sources. Choosing grass-fed or pasture-raised meat, wild-caught seafood, and local organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible is encouraged.

By focusing on as many different whole foods as possible, it’s easier to achieve sufficient and synergistic quantities of all the nutrients – potentially even some that haven’t been discovered. A variety of different foods supplies a variety of different nutrients. 

Health Benefits

Proponents believe that because providing the body with the essential nutrients that it needs to be healthy forms the basis of the Paleo diet, every system in the human body is positively affected by this approach to food. Clinicals demonstrate that a Paleo diet can improve cardiovascular disease risk factors, reduce inflammation, improve glucose tolerance, help with weight loss, and can even improve autoimmune diseases.

It focuses on the most nutrient-dense foods available and eliminates foods that can contribute to hormone dis-regulation, inflammation, and gut dysbiosis (where the bacteria in your gut are the wrong kinds, wrong diversity, wrong numbers, and/or in the wrong part of the gastrointestinal tract). It’s also great for weight normalization, meaning that overweight people tend to lose weight, and underweight people tend to gain weight. The Paleo diet reduces inflammation and supports normal functioning of the immune system, hormones, gut and gut barrier, and the liver.

Foods to Avoid in Whole Food Diet Therapy for Children with ADHD

Jun 29, 2016

In an earlier Froozer® blog post, we looked at information about how a whole foods diet combined with supplements can improve attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms in children – with no side effects. At Froozer®, we want to bring you even more information about foods and their affect on ADHD symptoms. In this blog post, we talk about foods to avoid, because we know that some studies suggest that diet may help ADHD kids more than drugs do.

ADHD alternative treatments include diet and nutrition changes that can make a significant difference in the lives of children with ADHD. In many cases, dietary changes have not only improved the symptoms of hyperactivity, concentration, and impulsivity, but also have calmed oppositional behavior. Diet therapy includes eating a wide range of whole foods as well as avoiding certain other foods.

Foods to Avoid

1. Avoid processed foods with additives, preservatives, artificial colors and artificial flavors. Many ADHD children are hypersensitive and react to one or all of these.

For example, one family experienced this when they gave their son a prescription antibiotic that contained red dye #40. Within a few minutes his behavior became bazaar and uncontrollable. He was out of control for the next two hours. After this same scenario happened with the second dose, they obtained a prescription for a different antibiotic without the dye.

2. Avoid dairy products of all kinds for at least two weeks to see if you notice a difference in behavior. Ice cream, which often intensifies ADHD symptoms, can be especially problematic due to the combination of dairy and sugar. Many children have sleeping difficulties after eating ice cream before bed.


3. Stop soft drink and caffeine intake. Avoiding colas, ice teas, and carbonated drinks in any form helps a very high percentage of children with hyperactivity and concentration problems.

4. Surprising as it is, an important food to avoid for ADHD children is fruit juices. Due to the high concentration of natural sugars in fruit juice, it can create problems for many children – especially children dealing with ADHD.

5. Go from processed to whole foods. Cut junk food and sugar:  no candies, no chocolates, no sugary desserts, no ice cream.

6. Avoid processed meats. Fresh, natural meats are best. Stay with organic whenever possible.

7. Avoid deep-fried foods, as they can also cause problems.

8. Between-meal snacks should be healthy and kept to a minimum.
