It’s a busy life and most of us do not even have time to take care of our health. We live in a world ruled by time, and in the middle of the chaos, we forget to take care of our health. We miss our doctor’s appointments, we forget to eat right. We live on instant foods, and these foods take a toll on our health. We do not get the required vitamins or nutrients from our fast foods, and this is where you need to remind yourself that your body needs food other than your usual burger and carbonated drinks.
We all assume that when it comes to eating healthy, it is all about loading up your plate with vegetables of all sizes and colours. Here is the thing. Eating healthy is not just about eating vegetables. You can get the nutrients that your body needs from nuts, dried fruits and berries. When we say nuts, we do not mean the salted peanuts that you enjoy during a cricket match or at the beach. We are talking about almonds, pistachios, walnuts etc.
That is where Happilo comes in. Believe us when we say that eating healthy has never tasted so good.

For example, Happilo’s Trailmix includes almonds, black raisins, cashews, dried cranberry, dried diced kiwi, dried mango chunks, dried diced papaya and smarties. Now, that beats all of our unhealthy food choices. Imagine the amount of nutrients your body will receive from one such packet.
Here are three main reasons why you should include nuts in your diet. Firstly, they decrease the risk of heart disease. Studies have shown that consumption of nuts leads to a reduced incidence of coronary heart disease. Also, it has shown to reduce cholesterol levels. These factors can be attributed to the presence of the fibre and heart-healthy unsaturated fats nuts contain. Secondly, they are an excellent addition to the diet if you are keeping your weight in check and helps in reducing the risk of obesity. This is mainly because of the protein, fibre and healthy fats in nuts can help increase satiety, which could prevent over eating. Lastly, studies have shown that nuts can also decrease the risk of diabetes. Even if you are diagnosed with diabetes, they are still an excellent addition to the diet since nuts contain few carbohydrates and have a low glycaemic index, which can help control blood sugar levels.
The addition of dried fruits, berries and dates to the diet is also extremely beneficial to the body. Dried fruits are an excellent source of antioxidants and fibres, and dates help in preventing anaemia and boosting the immune system. Happilo offers a wide variety of dried fruits, which includes Afghani Seedless Black Raisins, Californian Pitted Prunes, and Californian Sliced Cranberries etc.
