It’s cool that you exercise and try to lead a healthy lifestyle outside of work. But if you, like most people, spend the majority of your waking hours at the office you better learn how to stay healthy there too. Here are three actionable tips to improve your office life!
It is well documented that insects are nutritious, filled with quality protein, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, and many other minerals. But the effects of insect-eating on gut health is something that was never explored, until now. A new clinical trial looked at what happens to the gut microbiota of people who start eating insects, and the results are really promising!
Calories are not hard to get, it is vitamins and minerals we are often lacking. Insects are not only sustainable and ethical to farm, they are also very nutritious. And that’s important! Deficiencies of minerals like iron and calcium are not rare, especially as we age. We are also encouraged to get more of those healthy omega-3 fats and increase the amount of fibre and protein we eat. Think of the foods you consider good sources of iron, calcium, protein, and fibre. It turns out that crickets are better when it comes to all of these!
