Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is damned hard (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects claimed, such as persistent tiredness, stomach disorders, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
