As carnival approaches, the excitement of getting involved in the hustle and bustle builds. In order not to lose focus on summer or “long” in the blocks, it’s important to eat nutritiously and lightly, without giving up on flavor.
Umami Committee nutritionist Mariana Rosa suggests eating foods rich in umami, the fifth primary flavor of the palate. “Umami ingredients are a great way to guarantee more flavorful and balanced dishes, which will fill you up without weighing you down in the middle of the heat of a party”, explains Mariana.
The inclusion of umami foods guarantees the taste of meals, as they promote increased salivation and facilitate digestion. “Some examples are the addition of tomatoes to refreshing dishes, such as salads and nutritious smoothies”, says the expert.
Thinking about a pre-bloquinhos menu, Mariana separated three light and delicious recipes to guarantee yourself and last the party until the end. To enjoy!
