Although the days since March seem to have merged into one block of time, the New Year has come indeed. And it is in our human nature to feel as always full of hopes and new plans, no matter the current situation.
Since health was certainly the main theme in 2020, more than ever before in human history, naturally we have set our goals for the new year around this subject. Most probably, you also have at least one health-related goal in your New Year’s resolution list. And what better time than January, more recently celebrated as Veganuary to step on the new path to a healthier, plant-based eating. Should we, however do it at all costs and to what extent?
Being a brand of healthy ice cream, we at Coppa della Maga are strong advocates of healthy eating. Our vegan flavours portfolio has further established us as a leader in the segment of the better-for-you indulgence. We firmly believe, that plant-based eating without added sugar, selecting the highest quality ingredients is the way not just to a healthier, but also happier, more active and more fulfilling life. One that would help us achieve our potential. One in which we are the best versions of ourselves.
The only other thing, that is probably even more true, however, is that we believe we should listen to our bodies and what makes us feel good. What feels natural is always the best for us. Because nature is perfect! Not just in its shapes and beauty, but also in the way it heals, defends and repairs its bio-systems. Our bodies are micro-universes of connected systems and microorganisms, that constantly interact with each other and the external world and there are no two absolutely identical organisms on the planet. That is why, there is no one-size-fits-all nutritional plan and no advice that should be taken to the extreme.
Keep learning about food: the nutritional benefits of the wholesome ingredients; why should we avoid sugar, fructose or any similar sweetener; what new options are out there; always read the labels; experiment with new recipes and see what feels good for you. Time spent shopping and cooking might feel like a waste of time in our busy schedules, but if there is one positive side to 2020 it was the pause that nudged us to revisit our priorities.
Now is the perfect time of the year to look back at the passing months and decide what we want to take out of them and bring into our lives going forward. If we had to pick just one, that would be: follow the natural way and keep as close as possible to the nature in your lifestyle choices!
Time to reflect: what Mother Earth related resolution will you make for this Veganuary?
Stay healthy and in tune with nature with Coppa della Maga!
