Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Most of the negative side effects observed, such as persistent tiredness, stomach upsets, or bad headaches seem to be just temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Reducing carbs may mean missing out on necessary nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any sensible diet, particularly those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and green onion)
The alliaceae range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific proof at hand, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with colds, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
