Who says sex appeal and family don’t go together? Model Jessica Alba has three children and is absolutely in shape. We reveal your ultimate tips for a great and natural look.
Model mom and actress Jessica Alba (36) proves: Even after three deliveries, you can still have your dream body! You wonder how she does it? In her book “The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You” she explains her nutritional secrets. We have summarized their most important tips for you here.
1st tip: high five – vegetables and fruits
Eat at least three servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit every day. Legumes such as chickpeas, lentils, beans or nuts also go perfectly with a healthy diet. This will fully replenish your nutrient and fiber stores. Oh yes: Fruits and vegetables contain phytochemicals that fill you up quickly. And you lower the risk of cardiovascular problems or other diseases!
Jessica Alba complements the superfoods chia, quinoa and coconut oil. Every day these land on your table and thus ensure a nutrient-rich diet. Chia seeds contain around fifteen times more magnesium than broccoli, and quinoa helps with migraines and diabetes. Coconut oil raises the value of good cholesterol. In this way you actively protect yourself against arteriosclerosis and strokes. By the way, coconut oil tastes great in your salad dressing!
Here we show you how to start your day healthy and nutritious with delicious chia pudding …
Chia pudding – the perfect breakfast
Are you looking for a breakfast that is easy to prepare, keeps you full for a long time and at the same time provides you with lots of valuable nutrients? Then we have exactly the right thing for you.
2nd tip: Fully grainy!
Whether bread, pasta, rice or flour: Whole grain products are the best choice for you. They ensure that you stay full for a long time and strengthen your health. Whole grains should definitely be preferred to wheat flour. It contains significantly more nutrients and lowers various diseases such as diabetes, fat metabolism disorders, colon cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
3rd tip: less is more
Sugary and salty foods and drinks such as chocolate, cola, and ready-made meals shouldn’t be on your plate. Save salt and sugar. When cooking, you can also find the right taste with herbs and spices.
That’s behind it: sugary food and drinks usually contain hardly any nutrients, but all the more calories. Too much of either crystalline substance can lead to tooth decay and high blood pressure. You shouldn’t consume more than six grams a day. If there is salt in your shaker anyway, make sure that it is enriched with iodine and fluoride.
4th tip: There is strength in calm
Our everyday life is fast enough! Take enough time to eat. If you have just come out of the kitchen with a deliciously fragrant, home-cooked dish, concentrate on its taste and, if you are eating alone, put your mobile phone on its side. Only you are here right now! You will feel more relaxed and satiated afterwards.
5th tip: keep moving!
Wholesome nutrition makes a big contribution to a healthy life. Sport is also particularly important! Be active at regular intervals and actively shape your everyday life. For example, start the day by walking to work or riding a bike. You should incorporate between 30 and 60 minutes of exercise into your day. Moderate exertion promotes spirit, health and helps you to achieve your desired weight and thus your dream body.
