We bring you some easy and healthy recipes so that you can look after yourself without having to spend too long in the kitchen.

Why is it important to eat lighter suppers?
Supper is the last meal of the day and its main objective is not to go to bed on an empty stomach, which in turn, contributes to a good rest. Nonetheless, it should not be an abundant meal, such as breakfast or lunch, as we will hardly be using any energy during the night.
Take note of this advice:
1. Supper should contain between 15 and 25% of your total daily calories.
2. Try to eat a few hours before you go to sleep, that way you will go to bed having digested your food.
3. It is best to avoid pasta, rice, pizza and, of course, sugar and industrially manufactured cakes.
4. We recommend that you avoid foods that are difficult to digest, such as garlic and onion, as well as spices.
What should a healthy supper contain?
- Fruit and vegetables: half of the plate
- Proteins: eggs, meat, fish, legumes, dried fruit, etc. A quarter of the plate.
- Carbohydrates: bread, pasta or rice, always wholemeal. A quarter of the plate.
