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 reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is usually overlooked, it is very difficult (though certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a low carb diet.
Increased consumption of animal-based products may lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the probability of heart conditions.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring compound and one of the carotenid family. It is behind the dark red color of some fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Unlike numerous nutrients, lycopene does not become less effective if subjected to heat, but is truly improved by being heated.
Its most important theraputic value is that it serves as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risk of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the strongest fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It is also thought by many experts to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
