Healthy Food Tip

What does it mean to be healthy?

The dictionary defines health as the state of being free from illness, disease or injury. The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Here at the World’s Healthiest Foods our focus is on educating our readers how food and nutrition are essential for good physical health. Food is the key to life. It is the source of energy and essential nutrients that are required to sustain our bodies and prevent disease.

The word nutrition comes from a Latin root nutr-, which means to nurture or nourish. Nourishment is that which sustains life. Therefore, the science of human nutrition focuses on nourishing human life. From the moment of conception until death the body needs energy and nutrients to carry out vital functions such as breathing, digestion, metabolism, and every other physiological process in the body. Nutrition is thus the study of food; its nutritional components; the nutrient requirements of humans; and the means by which humans can maintain health and prevent disease through optimal nourishment from a healthy diet.

5 reasons NOT to buy those Girl Scouts cookies


#AFN2014

Fellowship of the Minds

Girl Scouts USA is beginning its annual cookie sales drive.

Here are 5 reasons NOT to buy those cookies:

1. Girl Scouts promote Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States

Bob Unruh reports for WND that two pro-life organizations, American Life League and American Family Association are boycotting Girl Scouts cookies and urging us to join them.

Judie Brown, president of the American Life League (ALL), America’s oldest Catholic pro-life education and advocacy group, warns: “The Girl Scouts was once a trusted organization dedicated to character building in young girls and women. Now, GSUSA is abusing that trust. Most parents and grandparents remain painfully unaware the GSUSA has introduced so-called ‘family planning’ ideology in its curriculum and promotes groups like Planned Parenthood to our daughters and granddaughters.”

For its part, the American Family Association (AFA), with its several million constituents and special divisions like OneMillionMoms.com which specifically work to influence…

Chocolate Mexican Coffee Cake

The process for making chocolate and cocoa powder is made by first grinding cacao nibs into a cocoa mass, which is then liquefied into a paste known as chocolate liquor. After the cocoa butter is forced out of the chocolate liquor by either a press or a special technique known as the Broma method, the remaining cocoa solids are processed to make fine unsweetened cocoa powder. Natural cocoa powder is lighter brown in color than Dutch-processed cocoa, tastes slightly bitter, and has a deep chocolate flavor.

Coffee: Has been proven to reduce risk for diabetes and Parkinson’s. It also stimulates enzymes that protect against colon cancer. It is Chlorogenic acid and it is one of the main caffeic acids found in coffee that has antioxidant properties. It’s also found in sunflower seeds, carrots, tomatoes and artichokes.

Spiced Candied Almonds


#AF&HN2014 says ” Nice one Shivaay” will give this one a try, for my next #SpecialOccasionParty

Shivaay Delights

image

Sweet, spicy and a hint of chilli is the trio of flavour you will get with these candied almonds that crystallize as they cool down. The sugar flecks off of them with salt to lift the sweetness.

image

Almonds are great for vitamin E and in turn for your skin and hair. What better way than to have them do a wonderful job for the body but also a taste sensation for our palettes!

image

I used less sugar so that I got a crisp coating on the almond rather than a sticky one, I know I will be making these again! And very soon!!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole almonds
½ cup granulated sugar
⅓ tsp mixed spice
pinch of red chilli powder
1 tbsp water
Sea Salt for sprinkling

Shivaay Delights

An all in one Mediterranean bread with exciting ingredients that blend so well together. The charred juicy pepper, the sweet and sour caramelised onion along with a hint of saltiness from the feta cheese makes this bread something very special, even though I do say so myself! Lovely with a light soup or just with a little butter on its own. I will definitely be experimenting more with these flavours and more breads are still to come!

1 medium white onion sliced crescents
1/2 tbsp olive oil for onion
1/2 tsp brown sugar

Introduction to Recipe Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify recipes that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Recipe Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the recipes that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which 4-Minute Healthy Sautéed Bok Choy is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the recipe doesn’t contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this recipe’s in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients – not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good – please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you’ll need to glance back up to see the ingredients used in the recipe and the number of serving sizes provided by the recipe. Our nutrient ratings are based on a single serving. For example, if a recipe makes 4 servings, you would be receiving the nutrient amounts listed in the chart by eating 1/4th of the combined ingredients found in the recipe. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this recipe and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration‘s “Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling.” Read more background information and details of our rating system.

#Chefs-tip “Eating Oatmeal Gives You Energy and is Slow Burning”


Oatmeal with Blueberries

#AceFoodNews says very few people know that one of the best all round and full of nutrition foods, is simply      “Oats or Oatmeal” this food or breakfast cereal mixed with other health giving foods, can set you up for the day. As it will make you feel warm, content and not hungry for many an hour, and with people on the go in today’s busy world it is perfect for any busy person, and as a chef l eat it daily together with fruit, nuts or a combination of both.

During my recent search and trawling through of my emails l came up with this simply recipe from my friend George Mateljan of the W.H Food foundation who as you know l post a number of his tips and recipes. As to know what is inside a recipe is important, but knowing what the various ingredients ,there health giving properties as a chef working with elderly and disabled person’s is equally important.

I never malign anyone but have always said the difference between a chef and a cook ,however good is simply knowledge of their ingredients but also knowing the science of cooking, and nothing can replace experience.

In this recipe it uses water, you can use milk and either full-fat, low-fat or semi-fat and of course for a special treat add a little cream, l have even tried Creme Fraiche But just good olde porridge {as we call it in the UK} Porridge (also spelled porageporrigeparritch, etc.) is a dish made by boiling ground, crushed, or chopped cereal in watermilk, or both, with optional flavourings, usually served hot in a bowl or dish. It may be sweetened with sugar, or served as a savoury dish. The term is usually used for oat porridge (porridge oats); there are similar dishes made with other grains or legumes, but they often have other unique names, such as polentagrits or kasha. with milk and honey will do just the trick. Either way just enjoy it!

#Chefs-tip ” Benefits of Broccoli”


English: Broccoli Deutsch: Broccoli

English: Broccoli Deutsch: Broccoli (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

#AceFoodNews says one of the most under estimated foods on this planet for both its goodness and healing properties is Broccoli.

Did you know that broccoli is one of a small number of vegetables that contribute to a significant reduction in heart disease? Of the more than 100,000 individuals who participated in seven prospective studies, those whose diets most frequently included broccoli, tea, onions and apples (foods all rich in flavonoids) benefited with a 20% reduction in their risk of heart disease! Flavonoids (or bio-flavonoids) (from the Latin word flavus meaning yellow, their colour in nature) are a class of plant secondary metabolites. Flavonoids were referred to as Vitamin P [1] (probably because of the effect they had on the permeability of vascular capillaries) from the mid-1930s to early 50s, but the term has since fallen out of use.are an amazing array of more than 6,000 plant nutrients found in fruits and vegetables that not only provide them with much of their beautiful colour, but are associated with their many health benefits.

also contains health-promoting Organosulfur compounds are organic compounds that contain sulfur.[compounds, which help activate and stabilize the body’s antioxidant and detoxification mechanisms. Other sulfur compounds, which are produced as a result of cutting, chewing or digesting broccoli, increase the liver’s ability to produce enzymes that neutralize potentially toxic, cancer-promoting substances. Letting your broccoli sit for 5-10 minutes after cutting (before cooking) will enhance the transformation of some of these sulfur compounds into their active forms and further increase the health benefits broccoli delivers to you.
