Healthy for the sweet tooth: From dates to salmon pancakes
A recipe every Sunday: Nutrition coach Marcus Schall tells us his favorite salmon recipes every Sunday in Advent. Whether for breakfast, Midday- or dinner - he provides us with the best tips for a healthy and balanced diet in this high-calorie time.
Marcus Schall has been working with us for several years. He reports in an interview today, why you shouldn't necessarily reach for a chocolate bar in the afternoon and what a healthy snack is instead. Of course there is also a salmon recipe.
Marcus, in the last two interviews you have already provided us with a delicious breakfast and lunch. But if your stomach growls again in the afternoon: Dates or Milky Way?
Marcus: Milky Way…?! What is that? 🙂 What can I say, dates of course, Nuts or some fresh fruit. Anything is better than a candy bar. At least when it comes to that, how to get through the afternoon in the best and fittest way. Sweets with a high sugar content ensure this, that the blood sugar level rises extremely quickly and falls again just as quickly. This is not only unhealthy in the long term, it also has the disadvantage, that the body needs more and more of it. Natural snacks are simply the better choice.
And why dates?
Dates have a few advantages over a candy bar: They contain an almost optimal ratio of the sugar types glucose and fructose and are therefore very well tolerated by the organism. They also provide minerals, trace elements and fiber, who take care of it, that the blood sugar level rises more slowly. Cravings after eating dates are therefore not a big issue. Dates are great to take away and are therefore a great alternative. Last but not least, the many different types of dates also offer a very exciting range of tastes. Medjool dates, for example, are super creamy and almost taste like caramel. A little hint: If you want to try the different types of dates, will find a great selection of real premium dates at Narafood Bio.
Dates are therefore your snack recommendation for in between?
Exactly, easy to portion, tasty and varied. An ideal snack is two dates, a handful of nuts and a small piece of dark chocolate. This combination provides fresh energy, healthy fats and cell-protecting vitamins as well as valuable antioxidants. The sophisticated variant: Pit the Medjool dates and fill with nut butter, then cover with dark chocolate couverture. Guaranteed better than a candy bar! Who prefers a hearty snack between meals, Wholemeal bread is suitable for this, preferably sourdough bread with a slice Salmon.
