Alberte Fernández Castro 3º ESO A
Santi is an expert in sports nutrition and a Galician champion of bodybuilding. Two weeks ago, he, and another nutrition expert, came to our institute to give for us a little conference on health and good nutrition.
He started with the importance of drinking a lot of water, he reminded us that we must drink a lot of water and he showed us the problems of other drinks. One bottle of soda has a lot of sugar. A clear example is a simple bottle of Coca-Cola that has twelve cubes of sugar. Many are not aware, in cola there is a substance called “folic acid” that works like natural substance of our body that prevent us for vomit.
In another part of the conference, he talked about the importance of the proper use of salt. He recommended using flaky salt for cooking, because usually, we use distilled salt. Flaky salt is a little more expensive than the distilled salt but it is more healthy.
Another important point that Santi talked about is the importance of consuming “living food”. Living food is a term that Santi use to refer to the food with a lot of nutrients. A lot of the food that we bought in the supermarket doesn’t have nutrients because, prior to its sale, it passed for a complex conservation and adaptation process that allows for more time in the supermarket.
He also talked about the importance of fish, eggs, vegetables and having a good breakfast. For breakfast he recommended having a piece of fruit, eggs, perhaps a bit of milk and some cereals. He reminded us of the important of having “antioxidants” and he gave us a trick: the foods that have a more intense color are the foods with more “antioxidants”. For example, chocolate, black olives…
Another example, the fish has a special acid called omega 3 that you only can find in fish, so it is an important to eat food.
We liked this conference very match and we want to see Santi again!!!
