Living Healthier in Costa Rica

9021c
Q LIVING – One comment that I often receive from those who visit Costa Rica is that they feel healthier when they are here.

I think there are a number of factors that contribute to that feeling, but have no doubt that the number one reason people feel healthier is because they EAT healthier.

9021fThe Costa Rica diet focuses on many tropical fruits, legumes, seafood, and vegetables.

Most importantly those ingredients are almost always found fresh and people usually stay away from processed foods because they’re normally more expensive, they rarely taste as good no matter how many ‘food engineers’ are involved and they are less healthy.

Fortunately for me, my wife loves to cook, and perhaps more importantly our lifestyle provides time for her to cook.  While the fresh, delicious ingredients found in Costa Rica is key, it does little good if you are caught up with frantic pace typical of most in North America.

Part of living the Costa Rica lifestyle is not only taking the time to cook, but to sit down and enjoy your meals.  I remember scarfing down my lunches in 15 minutes so I could get back to work, or rushing to just grab a quick bite in the morning before hitting commuter traffic.

Needless to say that I’m happy that those days are gone for me.

And naturally, when you eat better, you feel better.  You sleep better, ailments start disappearing, you have more energy, its no wonder people feel healthier in Costa Rica.

So if you are looking for a change, let’s talk to see how we can help you start living this wonderful Costa Rica lifestyle.
