17 Nov Defining Healthy Eating
When it comes to food, what does “healthy” mean to you?
Decades ago, most people defined healthy as “low fat” and “low calorie.”
But that’s all changed. Nutrition science has dramatically redefined healthy.
Healthy is no longer about cutting out most or all of the fat in your diet. It’s about being moderate in our consumption of saturated fats and choosing ones that are healthier, such as pasture-raised whole milk and organic virgin coconut oil. It’s also about including more healthy fats in the foods we eat, such as omega 3s which are essential for brain and heart function.
Healthy is no longer defined as “low calorie,” especially when low calorie means a lack of flavor and little nutritional value. Today, it’s about calories that count. You want (and need!) foods that are nutrient-rich, providing protein, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients.
Healthy is about premium ingredients that provide exceptional flavor and quality.
And healthy is about what most of us want to avoid in our foods. We don’t want GMOs, artificial growth hormones, artificial colors and flavors, high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners. And if you are living a gluten-free lifestyle, you want food that’s certified gluten free.
If you share this definition of healthy, you’ll be very happy with Brio.
Brio is an ice cream innovation aligned with the cutting-edge definition of healthy. Best of all, it delivers the rich, creamy deliciousness that we all want from ice cream.
Brio is made with organic whole milk from pasture-raised cows. Pasture-raised cows produce milk with more omega 3s. Organic milk is free of artificial growth hormones and is always non-GMO.
In addition, Brio’s rich flavors come from premium natural ingredients, such as Madagascar vanilla, Alphonso mango and real cocoa.
Brio is non-GMO, certified gluten free, r-BST-free and contains no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, and no monk fruit, stevia or erythritol.
Brio provides the nutritional advantages that you want in your food, including probiotics, 50% more protein and antioxidant richness.
While Brio is rich and creamy, it has half the fat, 65% less saturated fat and 40% fewer calories than super premium brands.
If you’ve given up or cut back on ice cream, and have been disappointed with “healthy” low-calorie, lot fat ice creams, we hope you’ll find your way back with Brio. Brio is truly rich, creamy and delicious — and of course, healthy. Enjoy!
