Eating Healthily with Pistachio

7 Mar

Pistachio looks like beautiful with its emerald hue. Many people like it ,but have little ideas of it .It is not only famous with fresh-color, but also with its nutritional value. First of all, it commonly grown in Turkey and Iran, 98 percent of the American crop of pistachios is grown in California. You can spot these distinctive nuts by their tan outer shell and the small green nut peaking out (the shell splits open when the nuts are ripe). Pistachios are available shelled or unshelled, salted or unsalted. Some research suggests that shelled nuts are a better choice for portion control– having to pop open the shell slows you down when munching. I love its original tasting, but it is also great with other ways to do with it. Eating healthily is our goal!

Eating Healthily with Pistachios

And one-ounce portion of pistachios (about 50 pieces) has 157 calories, 13 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein. You’ll also be crunching on an ample amount of iron, thiamin and vitamin B6. Pistachios also rank highest among nuts in the antioxidant department.

What To Do With Pistachios
When crushing up pistachios to make a coating for chicken or fish. Sprinkle chopped nuts to add crunch to salads and grain dishes or blend with herbs for a fresh take on pesto. The sweet and nutty flavor can also jazz up cookies, fruit salad, yogurt parfaits and frozen yogurt. To enhance the flavor, toast in a dry pan or 375-degree oven for 5 minutes before using. Or try the following simple recipe, courtesy of Pistachio Health.

Pistachios + Aged Gouda + Gala Apple Wedges Drizzled with Lavender Honey + Cold Ginger Beer (in photo above)

A delicate hint of salted, dry-roasted pistachios counterbalance the caramel-like sweetness of aged Gouda to blend naturally with the crisp juiciness of Gala apples. Lavender honey adds a fragrant, sweet earthiness that brings out the pistachios’ own earthy flavor. 

Thinly slice Gala apples and arrange on a platter; drizzle with lavender honey and serve alongside chunks of aged Gouda and bowls brimming with pistachios.

All of these good recipes is for you, hope you have a healthy eating.

Try to thinking about buying storable food

2 Oct

There are infinite reasons on why there would be shortage of food, but most people do not believe those reasons are possible. Reality is that these reasons are more than possible, almost predictable. If you are not prepared for what is coming, I suggest you think about storing food, and being prepared for the worst. Storing food can make a difference for you and your family. It would keep you immune to a food shortage. The more food is kept the more time it lasts. I suggest you go out there and buy canned food or food in boxes, bottled water and there are companies out there who sell some pre-made food, especially designed for storage.

If you do not save anything to eat already you may want to start thinking about buying storable food now that times are not so bad. Storing food is like putting money in a safe. In times of an emergency and food shortage, food will become one of the most valuable possessions you have, if not the only. If you want to store food all you need to do is go to your local grocery store and buy canned food and bottled water. Dry foods are also good for storage, most of the time they come in boxes or some kind of plastic container. There are companies out there making storable food now. Look them up online they offer very good quality products especially designed to store.

Make sure you look at the expiration dates and make sure they last long enough. Storing food can become your reliable source of food when food is not available. Storing food does not cost much and it would help you immensely if you do not have money to buy anything to eat or produce is scarce and cannot be bought. Storing food could save you and your family’s life in a time of need. With the economic collapse and dollar devaluation, now is the most important time to stock up on items to eat, you can also take advantage of our business opportunity to make an extra income as well as benefit from home business tax deductions.Being able to obtain produce all the time is what blocks us from realizing that maybe food might become scarce one day.

With this things stored you won’t have to worry about what to eat when it is scarce.Food and water are things we need to survive on day by day. If a day comes upon us were these elements would not be available it would be chaos. It is better being prepared and have food stored for when needed than having to pay the consequences for not having it. Storing food would only take you a bit of time, space and money but in the end this effort would all be worth it.

Healthy eating take you happy

21 Sep

Healthy eating is not about strict nutrition philosophies, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible– all of which can be achieved by learning some nutrition basics and using them in a way that works for you.

Fears of high cholesterol were frequently voiced up until the mid-1990s. However, more recent research has shown that the distinction between high- and low-density lipoprotein (‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol, respectively) must be addressed when speaking of the potential ill effects of cholesterol. Different types of dietary fat have different effects on blood levels of cholesterol. For example, polyunsaturated fats tend to decrease both types of cholesterol; monounsaturated fats tend to lower LDL and raise HDL; saturated fats tend to either raise HDL, or raise both HDL and LDL, and trans fat tend to raise LDL and lower HDL. Dietary cholesterol itself is only found in animal products such as meat, eggs, and dairy, but studies have shown that even large amounts of dietary cholesterol only have negligible effects on blood cholesterol.

Particularly within the last five years government agencies have attempted to combat the amount and method of media coverage lavished upon “junk” foods. Governments also put pressure on businesses to promote healthful food options, consider limiting the availability of junk food in state-run schools, and tax foods that are high in fat[citation needed]. Vending machines in particular have come under fire as being avenues of entry into schools for junk food promoters. However, there is little in the way of regulation and it is difficult for most people to properly analyze the real merits of a company referring to itself as “healthy.” Recently, the United Kingdom removed the rights for McDonald’s to advertise its products, as the majority of the foods that were seen have low nutrient values and high fat counts were aimed at children under the guise of the “Happy Meal”. The British Heart Foundation released its own government-funded advertisements, labeled “Food4Thought”, which were targeted at children and adults displaying the gory nature of how fast food is generally constituted.

Healthy eating begins with learning how to “eat smart”—it’s not just what you eat, but how you eat. Your food choices can reduce your risk of illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, as well as defend against depression. Additionally, learning the habits of healthy eating can boost your energy, sharpen your memory and stabilize your mood. You can expand your range of healthy food choices and learn how to plan ahead to create and maintain a satisfying, healthy diet.
