What is a healthy diet?

Even today, many people think of "healthy food" as unattractive‑looking food that lacks colour and flavour, and they pay extra for it. Fortunately, this has not been the case for some time, and "healthy" foods can be enjoyed just as well as unhealthy ones.

Healthy eating generally means a diet that provides adequate intake of all macronutrients, fibre, vitamins, minerals and other bioactive substances. A proper diet helps with the prevention of chronic diseases and contributes to overall physical and mental fitness. However, there is no need to restrict yourself completely and ban everything "unhealthy", you just need to set the right boundaries - e.g. the 80/20 rule.

How to choose healthy foods?

When you're on the hunt for healthy foods, it's important to look carefully at each product read the ingredients. In particular, you should be wary of consuming foods with excessive amounts of artificial colours, sweeteners or sugar. In short, the fewer ingredients the better.

Fresh, vitamin‑packed produce from one's own garden is a guaranteed safeguard. But these can't be relied on all year round, and a sufficient supply of non‑perishable foodstuffs makes up the bulk of any pantry. It is therefore particularly good to pay attention to quality. You can stock up with us:

Healthy eating doesn't just take one form. Nowadays, there are a plethora of dietary trends (e.g. veganism, keto diet) that, when properly conceived, meet the prerequisites of healthy eating. However, there are also people with health restrictions (e.g. histamine or lactose intolerance) who have to cut out some otherwise essential products - but even here, with the right dietary composition, a balanced diet can be achieved.

In some cases, however, certain essential substances may be deficient, which can be helped by dietary supplements.
