At Balanced, we stress the importance of healthy eating. That’s why we also think it’s essential to be transparent about the benefits of our ingredients. It’s easier to consume foods that are good for you when you know all the great things they can do for you! If you’re looking for a hearty and healthful “lunch near me,” be sure to visit us at one of our three locations!
Here’s a list of benefits some of the main ingredients in our recipes provide!
The great thing about avocados is that they’re packed with a ton of essential nutrients for the body. This includes nutrients such as vitamins B6, C, E, and K, along with magnesium, potassium, folate, and niacin. These are just to name a few!
The healthy fats that avocados contain have the ability to keep you fuller for longer. Healthy fats also promote and support the health of your skin and immune system. Avocados are great for improving digestion as they are high in fiber. You can find avocados just about anywhere on our menu. But some of our favorites are the Modern Cobb, Power Toast, and Tokyo Sesame Bowl!
Bananas are actually a great food to eat after a workout for several reasons! They’re high in magnesium, meaning they can aid in the relaxation and contraction of your muscles. Bananas also provide sufficient potassium (an electrolyte), which helps your muscles recover faster.
This fruit can also help promote a positive mood and alleviate some feelings of stress or anxiety. This is because bananas contain norepinephrine, a chemical that helps regulate stress in the body. You can find bananas in some of our menu options like PB & ‘Nanas, Paradise Acai Bowl, and many of our smoothie options!
Black beans are a great alternative to other proteins if you don’t typically eat meat. It’s also considered a highly digestible protein compared to others! They’re high in fiber, antioxidants, and numerous other nutrients like magnesium, iron, and folate, just to name a few!
Black beans can assist in lowering and managing blood sugar levels. They can also help to lower blood cholesterol and high blood pressure. You can find black beans on our menu in our Black Bean Wrap, The Burrito Bowl, Master Bowl, and Brendan’s Burrito!
