It’s no secret that what you eat throughout your day influences your energy, blood sugar levels, exercise performance, and muscle recovery. When you reach for energy foods like Quantum Energy Square or Wildway granola, you know you’re getting a balance of carbs, protein, and healthy fats to make your body (and your tastebuds) happy. Choosing foods made from whole ingredients means you’re choosing a food that has undergone less processing, ensuring more of that nutrient-density is intact. Your body can then take those nutrients and turn them into sustainable long-lasting energy aka FUEL. We wanted to share three ways that these foods actually fuel your body from the inside out.
1. Aid In Physical Performance: Nutrient-dense foods provide the much-needed energy and nutrients to help maximize endurance, strength, and recovery during physical activities. From whole grains, lean proteins, and heart-healthy fats to fruits, vegetables, and dairy products – nutrient-dense foods can help you get the most out of your workout.
2. Enhance Cognitive Performance: Eating nutrient-dense foods can help sharpen your mental focus and concentration, which is essential for all aspects of life – especially adventuring. Quantum Energy Square and Wildway Granola contain 100% real ingredients high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as nuts and seeds, which are particularly beneficial for cognitive performance.
3. Deliver Essential Vitamins and Minerals: Nutrient-dense foods contain an array of essential vitamins and minerals that are essential for your body to function properly. These include vitamins A, C, D, E, K and B-complex vitamins, as well as iron, zinc, magnesium, and calcium. A diet rich in these micronutrients can help your body better cope with the physical and mental demands of outdoor activities.
You might be wondering why we are promoting each other's products. The short answer: Supporting and partnering with other companies we believe in helps spread our mutual mission of promoting a healthy life, encouraging time outside, and enjoying natural fuel from food. The market is already saturated with hundreds of “foods” full of gums, fillers, unhealthy seed oils, sugar, the list goes on. But there is another way – we’re here to show you that healthy snacks can be delicious AND nutritious. Next time you’re at the grocery store, be sure to pay attention to the ingredients on the back of the packaging.
We look forward to helping you fuel your adventures!
