Food contains nutrients that provide energy to our body, when we talk about nutrients we refer to what is necessary for life, which is divided into 2 groups, micronutrients and macronutrients, the first reference to vitamins and minerals, while the macronutrients they are fats, proteins and carbohydrates, all these nutrients work well in our body giving us energy and making our body work better, according to better health (2014). “A food rich in nutrients, contains many vitamins and minerals (also called micronutrients), but not many calories.” Vitamins and minerals nourish your body and help maintain health while reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Vegetables like avocado, broccoli, onions, cauliflower, lettuce, tomato, cucumber. Like fruits, strawberries, pineapple, banana, pears, and watermelon. Whole grains, rice, wheat, barley, corn, oats. Seafood, low-fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese are some nutrient-rich foods, which we must include in our daily diet.

Nevertheless Healthy lifestyles are a global strategy, which is part of a modern health trend, basically framed within the prevention of diseases and health promotion, perhaps the key moment or the beginning of this trend was in 2004 and was generated by a declaration by the world health organization, to improve risk factors such as unhealthy eating and sedentary lifestyle, therefore lifestyles are determined by the presence of risk factors and / or of protective factors for well-being, for which reason they should be seen as a dynamic process that does not it only consists of individual actions or behaviors, but also of actions of a social nature. Lifestyles have been considered as determinants and conditioning factors of the state of health of an individual (ministerio de salud Gibierno del Sakvador, 2016).
