Simple Ways to Maximise Your Nutrient Intake

Nutritious eating can take on a variety of forms, depending on who you ask. The truth is eating healthily doesn’t have to be difficult. It is possible to enhance your nutrient intake while continuing to enjoy your favourite foods.

While we all want a healthy, nutrient-dense diet, it can be tricky to know where and how to begin. One of the simplest ways is by making small changes to what you eat.


Store Fruits and Vegetables the Right Way

We often overlook ways in which we store our fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables must be kept whole in the refrigerator to get the maximum nutrition and to prevent spoilage. Cutting them just before you are about to consume is the ideal practice.

Simple to make recipes, such as the Vegan Buddha Bowl Noodles, are a great way to satiate your cravings while also getting the most out of your fresh vegetables.

Have a Multi(whole!)grain-rich Diet

Foods containing whole grains are rich in carbohydrates and proteins. Protein aids in the repair of tissues, the maintenance of a healthy weight, and the battle against illness and infection, while carbohydrates are the body’s primary source of energy.

KOKA’s Baked Multigrain Noodles is a great example. They’re baked, not fried, and they’re packed with whole-grain goodness.

Consume Antioxidant-rich Foods

Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals to prevent or delay damage to our cells. Antioxidant-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts and other foods may lower the risk of diseases (including heart disease and certain cancers).

KOKA Purple Wheat Noodles is an easy way to incorporate antioxidants into your food. It’s made with purple corn, which contains a type of antioxidant called Anthocyanins, giving it its natural and unique purple hue.


Nutrition is the understanding of food and how it affects the body. While it may sound complicated, these simple steps could help you get started, and practicing smart nutrition habits such as incorporating a wide variety of foods makes getting your daily nutrients easier.
