How easy and delicious to gain weight. Nourishing smoothy for lunch.

This post was born thanks to the dear reader’s question. The question was not trivial and captured me. Here is this question:

What to eat in order quickly to gain back healthy weight?

It’s so common that the question about the world order is whirling around weight loss, what is the best for detox. Although if we would look at the problem at 360?

We need balance and harmony, and therefore, the body and mind have to be strong and dexterous to easily and quickly cope with the tasks that life fronts us and which we choose ourselves too.

Sometimes it is needed to add weight after illness or stress.

Then a high-calorie food, rich in vitamin, minerals and fats is required.

What products can help at best?

The dietitian in the sanatorium recommended to drink more fruit juices, e.g. instead of 1 glass, take 2.

The fact , she explained, there is no fiber in juices, the large quick fructose dose immediately jumps into the blood. The body quickly digests sugar excess into fat and stores it as reserve.

This does not happen if you eat fruits with fiber, combine fruits with vegetables and greens in juice or make smoothies.

I put together a list of top products rich with calories , they are perfect for gaining weight.

CALORIES per 100 g

Vegetable oils – 880 – 900 cal
Nuts (depends on the type) – 550 – 700 cal
Seeds (sunflower, sesame, chia, pumpkin, flax) – 450 – 580 cal
Oat flakes – 350 – 360 cal
Coconut – 354 cal
Soybeans – 340 cal
Dried fruits (dried apricots, raisins, dates, figs, prunes) – 230 -290 cal
Chocolate (cocoa beans) – 228 cal
Seed sprouts (wheat, beans) – 140 – 200 cal
Avocado – 160 cal (1 small avocado)
Legumes (peas, beans, lentils) – 80 – 120 cal
Bananas – 89 Kcals
Mango – 67 Kcals
Grapes – 65 Kcals
Cale – 49 Kcals

NB that these are plant based products contain good type of fats, they do not add bad cholesterol, favorably affects the cardiovascular system and supports the nervous system and brain functions.

All these products are rich with vitamins and nutritional elements.

I picked up a smoothie recipe (about 1 glass by volume) with 570 calories. A full portion of the lunch dish will offer about the same number of calories. You can add 1 tsp of your favorite superfood (chlorella, wheat grass or barley, acai berry) to “strengthen” the positive health effect. You can easily energise and nourish yourself with such smoothies and recharge your batteries when no time to go for lunch or charge yourself in the morning ahead a challenging day;
