Basic ingredients for curry chicken

A lot of people think they need to add coconut milk to cook Chicken Curry.  But coconut milk are high in saturated fat and will add loads of calories to your meal as well.  I like to use turmeric powder, curry powder, chili powder and onions to cook yummy curry without coconut milk. These ingredients are rich in antioxidants, natural and cheap!

醫知健:身體語言大辭典:護心飲食小貼士

如何能減低患上心臟病的機會?定期做身體檢查?保持心境開朗?都對,但最重要還是培養良好的生活及飲食習慣,幫助控制血壓及膽固醇水平,從而大大降低患冠心病的機會,例如多吃水果蔬菜,亦要選擇高纖低脂食物,以及少吃高糖高脂東西。
 

蔬 菜和水果含豐富纖維、維他命和礦物質,每天應進食五份蔬果才夠。在日常飲食加入蔬果非常簡單,可用水果煲湯或混合肉類快炒,試試草莓炒雞柳及奇異果炒牛 肉,也可考慮食用毋須煮熟的蔬菜,如青瓜、胡蘿蔔、西芹及番茄等。牛油果亦是一種有益健康的食物。別被它的名字嚇怕,它的熱量較高,半個便有十四點七克脂 肪,但大都是健康的單元不飽和脂肪,有助心臟健康。
 

適當飲食 有助降低總膽固醇與高密度膽固醇比例,如要避免進食含飽和脂肪與反式脂肪高的食物,定期少量進食含不飽和脂肪的食物,如芥花籽油、橄欖油、花生油和各類果 仁,及每星期進食至少兩次含豐富奧米加三的魚類,如鮭魚、鯖魚、鯡魚或三文魚,亦可幫助保護心臟。研究證實經常運動及保持均衡飲食,有助消除健康危機,所 以由今天開始實踐健康生活方式,培養均衡飲食和恒常運動的習慣吧!

yummy bistro salad

This pre-packed salad from ASDA really attracted us today, so colorful with lots of green leafy vegetables inside.  What made them so colorful:  Beetroot, endive and lambs lettuce.  Among them, lamb's lettuce is what I'm not so familiar of.  It has a rosette shape with rounded leaves, matte green in color, tastes slight nutty and tangy flavor.  It is very rich in provitamin A, vitamin C and B9.  We added more tomatoes in there as my daughter wanted it, but Chefs would rather add boiled egg!

When we eat matters!

Read this article in Pinterest just now. The picture illustrated very well.   The truth is if you skip breakfast you are going to eat worse food for rest of the day.  And more, breakfast eater performed better academically and at work too.  Won't surprise about this, right?

A 'Must' for the BBQ.

Remember to bring along a salad with full of colors, and fruits such as watermelon to your BBQ.  They will provide lots of antioxidants to fight againt free radicals from BBQ.  Enjoy!

Medicare Needs More Nutrition Therapy Coverage, Group Says

Medicare should expand coverage of medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for certain diseases such as hypertension, obesity and cancer, a nutritionists and dieticians group said Monday.

朱古力的魅力

朱古力,被古代瑪雅人稱為「神的食糧」,數百年來都是人們心目中的甜食。今天,它已被認定為一種功能食品,除了含有基本營養之外,還擁有可以促進健康和預防疾病的功效。

可可和朱古力含有高濃度的花青素類黃酮類、兒茶素及表兒茶(J Am Coll Nut, Oct 2001) 。黃酮類是一種抗氧化劑,有助預防細胞損傷,減少血栓和改善血糖水平。朱古力還含有另一種抗氧化劑名為「多酚」 ,能減低患上心臟病的風險。一塊 1.4 安士( 40克)朱古力含有約250毫克的「多酚」,相等於半杯紅酒裡可攝取的份量。可可粉含有最高「多酚」類,其次是黑朱古力。而白朱古力則沒有包含任何「多 酚」類。
 

 

可可產品亦含有豐富兒茶素、兒茶素能夠在一般綠茶中找到,它們可預防癌症(胃癌,食道癌,皮膚癌),打擊病毒,延緩衰老,及減少患上心臟病的風險等等。基本上,愈黑,愈苦的朱古力,兒茶素含量愈高。

可可豆中50-57 %是可可脂,其中34 %的硬脂酸是一種被認為應減少進食的飽和脂肪。然而,一項賓夕法尼亞州立大學的研究發現,當受測試者每進食 1.4 安士朱古力代替高糖份零食,朱古力不但沒有提升壞膽固醇( LDL )的水平,還提升了高密度脂蛋白的水平 (HDL)。所謂的高密度脂蛋白,屬於“好”膽固醇的一種,有預防心臟病的功效。

所以,要做個聰明的消費者,就要選擇黑朱古力(含70 %或以上的可可粉),並限制每一次的進食量為1.4 安士(40千克)左右,因為這個份量一般可在20分鐘內透過運動燃燒。另外,嘗試選擇含有黃豆的朱古力來增加異黃酮素,可舒緩更年期症狀,心臟病,和骨質 疏鬆症。

透過適量、均衡、及明智地管理健康飲食,你絕對可以享受朱古カ這種功能性的甜食 ,並帶來意想不到的健康效益。
