Food bowls are a simple and quick way to incorporate nutritious ingredients into your lunches, dinners, and even breakfasts. They limit your snacking and overeating and allow you to adopt an intuitive way of eating. And above everything, they are quick solutions to our hunger pangs.
It is important to know that the type of food we eat and the bacteria it has, highly affect how we feel and behave. Low-quality, processed food creates fluctuations in your blood sugar, promotes inflammation, and disrupts the regulation of insulin. Whereas, if you start being more considerate to yourself you can reduce the chances of a lot of diseases such as age-related cognitive decline and brain muscle shrinking.
The first and foremost approach towards intuitive eating is being mindful of the sources and ingredients of your food. The Bowl One, Dubai’s best healthy food restaurant, handpicks organic and the freshest of ingredients to prepare their meals from scratch.
