Gorgonzola PDO: the Mood Food that cheers you up

Besides the normal challenges of life, the current emergency has confronted us with unusually huge problems, and as a result we are often pervaded by a sense of sadness topped up by the change of season. Eating MOOD FOOD can help to fight such feelings: among these, GORGONZOLA PDO can cheer us up and help us to find the desire to face difficulties with a positive attitude.

In fact, it is considered a mood food because in addition to being rich in useful nutrients, it also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps to release serotonin, also called “happiness hormone”. Furthermore, Gorgonzola PDO has the right balance to prepare dishes that satisfy senses and taste, providing the right nutritional properties.

Inside a slice of Gorgonzola, we find proteins with a high biological value and several micronutrients, such as vitamins A and B12, folates, calcium, phosphorus and zinc, which promote, among other things, normal psychological, immune, cognitive and visual function and help to reduce fatigue and tiredness. Thanks to the high content of tryptophan, calcium and B group vitamins, included in a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, Gorgonzola PDO is able to cheer you up, not only for its unmistakable tastiness.

It is always important to have a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, continuing to do some sport at home, despite this difficult moment, thanks to the many videos on the web and simple exercises with everyday objects: a nice example? Instead of lifting bottles of water to strengthen your arms you can try a tasty and fun workout using two slices of Gorgonzola PDO, spicy and sweet. Another cheerful training? Face the fatigue of the plank (perfect exercise for all the muscles of the body) by placing two slices of sweet and spicy Gorgonzola in front of you, and enjoy them after the training to give you the perfect nutrients.

Spring is also the time of the year when seasonal fruit and vegetables fill the pantries and allow you to create the best recipes for a proper diet with healthy and tasty foods.

To create delicious and balanced recipes it is interesting to combine Gorgonzola PDO, carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables, which can also provide the body with vitamins and minerals such as in croutons with asparagus, peas and fava beans or in the Venere black rice salad with fresh spinach, fava beans and strawberries.
