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 case against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Elevated consumption of animal-based products could lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the chance of heart conditions.
Moreover, it has been proposed that the kidneys can become stressed and that the resulting change in acid levels in the blood can cause the loss of bone, but some of the scientific studies testing the theory have struggled to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or bone damage.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes apricots, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a simple compound used to color foods and part of the carotenid family. This chemical is accountable for the dark red color of a good number of fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Fortunately, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical does not become less effective if heated during cooking, but is noticeably enhanced by being cooked.
Its most interesting nutritional contribution is that it behaves as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
