Diet

Fit young woman fighting off fast food                                                                                                                                                                         Poor nutrition ultimately means poor health in one form or another. Nor can you escape your background. Poor nutrition experienced over generations is recorded and expressed genetically as various strengths and weaknesses in the body. So anything positive you can do now will not only store up potential good health for the future but will also help to repair negative states from the past.
You will have more resistance to disease and will experience increased health and vitality.
You need to follow a healthy programme which might include.
Exercise and Relaxation
Eating plenty of complex carbohydrates like grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables
Eating plenty of nuts, seeds and yellow and green leafy vegetables
Limiting intake of animal protein , especially red meat , en excess of which is linked to cancer of the colon.
Cutting down on salt and processed food’s
Cutting down on sugar
Avoiding fried and fatty food’s ( excluding stir fries)
Reduction of diary intake
Cutting down on alcohol and caffeine
Stop smoking
At time of stress or illness taking a good multivitamin and mineral supplement , and rising of your intake of Vitamin C can be also useful boost for the immune system.
The role of healthy programme can also play a part in helping certain conditions like eczema and psoriasis which are often exacerbated by spicy food , dairy products , citrus fruits , alcoholic drinks , coffee and fry – ups.

So its all about changing a lifestyle not Dieting , I think most diets don’t work for long time , always kicking you back with yoyo effect . But if you slowly change your lifestyle

it is more likely to work permanently . Well it works for me :}

From The Beehive

 

 

I have used this product for over 2 years and cannot find the words to adequately explain how good it is. I used it for long hard outdoors workouts three times a week to keep my peak performance at optimal levels. Nothing is as healthy and concentrated in super high quality protein and energy so you have less blood used for utilizing it and more blood to keep oxygen levels up. Not all bee products are the same, and the kind you get at the local unmentioned health store just do not work very good at all. Different locations give different pollens to gather. This brand gathers the pollen in pollution free dry desert so it is pure and pollution free. The types of pollen gathered there makes it unique and potent.

Since earliest times, the bee has fascinated man with its examples of industry and organisation, producing the bountiful gifts of honey, royal jelly, bee Pollen and Propolis.
What is BEE POLLEN ?
Is the male fertilising component of plant reproduction. Bees gather and bring it back to their hives for food. Without Pollen, plants, trees and flowers could not exist, even we depend on it.
Bee Pollen provides a wide spectrum of essential nutrients. Each is required to maintain perfect health.
The nutrients in bee Pollen are readily digestible and easy absorbed by the human body. Many people obtain benefit, including athletes who take it for stamina and energy. In addition, bee Pollen has number of specific benefits:
* can help to correct body chemistry and so counteract the effects of food additives and 

* it can desensitise the body, making it a good supplement
*it is also bacteriostatic, suppressing the activity of bacteria and increases the effective elimination of wastes and poisons from the body.
Bee Pollen also contains lecithin, which occurs naturally in all cells. Thus it aids in digestion and the metabolism of fats, and improves the efficiency of immune and nervous system.

As a member of Tesco Orchard Club very often I am invited to try new products made by Tesco or sold by Tesco .

 And  today I want to talk about Tesco range of frozen food Beautifully  Balanced .

I have to say when I received my invitation to this programme I was little bit sceptic about the whole frozen meals thing , but I had a second thought and decided to join the programme and find out for myself if is worth buying it in the future , mind the fact I normally cook from scratch for my family but I think is always good to have something in the case of emergency in the freezer , So I received coupons through the post went to my local Tesco   on the mission to find my potential best friend , and I did . First caught my attention Healthy Living Wholegrain Fusillil Spinach And Cheese Sauce. I love spinach so I was very happy there is a choice of that in frozen range . For 800g you pay £2 I think this is very cheap what  you get anyway ,  The whole meal takes about 10 minuets to prep , I cooked it in the pan but you can also use microwave oven .

 When I tasted it I thought this is fantastic , wholegrain pasta lots of spinach , Cherry Tomato, Red Pepper, Yellow Pepper, it makes colourful plate , the cheese sauce is not to strong just ads lovely creaminess to the whole mix .I really enjoyed this pasta dish I would definitely highly recommended to anyone no matter what age even my 2 year old fussy eater loved it .

My next choice from Beautifully Balanced range was  Oriental Whole Food Mix 500G this cost a £1.50

 This vegetable mix with grains and cashew nuts in a sesame and soy dressing.

oriental wholefood with cashew nuts taste just great , as soon as I opened the bag the smell came out and made my mouth watering before I even started cooking , with this veg mix I decided to ad some vegetarian chicken , but I tell you anything will go with it . The whole dish  is packed with amazing oriental flavours , for me it tasted just like takeaway  but none greasy , and I did not feel guilty after I licked my plate . But what I like about this product is there is lots of veg inside like Carrot, Broccoli, Soya Bean, Red Pepper, Babycorn and Cooked Bulgur and of course cashew nuts which I love , I am also impressed how well is spiced , I don’t like spicy food at all but this has a perfect heat to it .
