Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
The case against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one fact that is usually overlooked, it is very difficult (although by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
Cutting out carbs could mean missing out on needed nutrients from healthy foods which should be part of any sensible diet, specifically those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
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.
