The most fashionable healthy drinks

Both in summer and winter, healthy is a trend. First of all, as this concept is very broad and already applies to everything, it is convenient to ask a nutritionist if we have doubts about whether what we eat and drink is healthy or not. We discover some of the healthiest and most fashionable drinks today.

Coconut water

Actually, it’s not something expanding right now, we’ve heard about it years ago. Coconut water is the liquid that is found naturally in the inner hollow of the coconut. It has a transparent colour and provides several benefits: 94% water, minerals such as potassium, magnesium, sodium and calcium, and vitamins A and B12.

Kombucha

Strongly popular, it is found at the coolest establishments of the moment. It is a drink made from fermented tea, which mixes a sweet and citric flavour. It is usually consumed in China or Russia and not long ago it reaches many other countries in the world.

It is also a tea that comes from a jungle plant in the Ecuadorian Amazon. It is rich in antioxidants and chlorogenic acids, and low in calories. This protects our heart and helps us lose weight, provided we lead a healthy lifestyle.

Jamaica’s water

It also receives the name of hibiscus water or tea, being strongly consumed in Central America, South America and the Caribbean, as well as in Mexico and Jamaica. Like the rest of the drinks it is usually obtained from the infusion in water of the flowers of a type of hibiscus. It is diuretic, strengthens our digestive system, and is rich in vitamin C and minerals.

Best Drinks for Autumn

 TAGS:undefined

Humid air, cold winds, rainfalls….love it or hate it, but autumn is inevitable. But in order to stand the cold weather, you just need the right drinks. 

Cocktails

Although in summer the most refreshing and citrusy drinks tend to win, in the autumn, gin tonics and long drinks that mix vodka, Cointreau or whisky with sweeter creams and juices are usually preferred at this time of year. When the cold comes, you will want one of them for sure.

Rosé wine

Yes, in addition to spring and summer, rosé wine is still a drink that can be consumed before the toughest cold. Especially for light dishes, such as salads, pasta, rice or chicken and other more powerful like stews, because they offer a refreshing touch that we still need.

Red wine

It is one of the drinks par excellence of the autumnal months. You can really drink it all year long, but with meats and fish, and spoon dishes, it is the best option to get warm and appreciate the nuances of sauces, herbs and spices.

Tea

Because it is warm and when the hard work of autumn comes we need a good boost. Tea recharges our batteries and at the same time, it relaxes us, in order to avoid unnecessary stress as winter gets near.

Stout and craft beer

Lager beer is perfect for the heat, but in autumn we recommend toasted, black and artisan beers. Each one brings a different flavour and they are usually are consistent and rich, giving us the energy that we lack these days.

Vermouth

It is the all-time classic that gains relevance when we meet with friends or co-workers again. Ideal as an appetizer, an after-work talk, with tapas… whatever it may be, vermouth is the right choice for this time of year.
