Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The argument against low carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one fact that is frequently overlooked, it is very hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to take up a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Moreover, it has been hypothesised that the kidneys may become stressed and that the related change in acid levels in the blood can result in bone loss, but some of the medical studies trying to test the theory have failed to find evidence of damage to the kidneys or loss of bone.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a naturally occurring coloring agent and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the deep red colour of a good number of natural foods.
Usefully, unlike numerous vitamins, lycopene is not damaged during the cooking process, but is observably made more effective by going through the cooking process.
Its most valuable advantage is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to be of use in the battle to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is connected with aging of the skin. It's also thought by many researchers to prevent the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
