Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Many scientific studies over the years have shown that exessive consumption of animal fat can result in greater risk of cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses.
Eliminating carbohydrates might mean missing out on needed nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those that we get from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
The nutrient lypcopene is a naturally occurring chemical compound and a member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is accountable for the red color of quite a few natural foods.
Usefully, unlike most other nutritional compounds, this useful phytochemical does not degrade if cooked, but is noticeably increased in efficacy by cooking.
Lycoprene's most valuable health contribution is that it is an antioxidant and appears to be an asset in the battle to lower the risks of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also believed to slow down the growth of atherosclerosis.
