Why eat spinach and how to cook it

Spinach – a unique plant, if not paradoxical. How can these leaves with their 23 kilocalories per 100 grams. be so nutritious and healthy? You probably remember the cartoon about the sailor Popeye, who became incredibly strong by eating a can of spinach? So, about spinach – it’s almost true.

Chia seeds: with what and why eat them?

Chia seeds are rapidly spreading and gaining popularity among adherents of a healthy diet. But many, standing in front of a supermarket shelf with this rather rare product, will think about whether to take it? Why are these outlandish seeds so useful and, most importantly, how to cook them? Let’s get it right.

What is oxidation and How to protect your cells from it

This spring, I lived in California, and I had the opportunity to attend a very interesting two-month nutrition course at Stanford University. The program was called Food Facts and Fads (“Food: Facts and Myths”) and, as the name implies, was supposed to teach students to understand a huge stream of scientific and pseudo-scientific information about nutrition.

I want to tell you about some of the topics that we discussed.

This article deals with the problem of oxidation, which our teacher, Dr. Clyde Wilson, raised literally in every lesson. What is oxidation? From a chemical point of view, this is a process during which a donor Continue reading

7 healthy grapefruit benefits you should be aware of

The benefits of grapefruit for the human body
Grapefruits have long been known for their beneficial properties in losing weight, and therefore are most often associated with diets that help to lose weight. There are many ways to include them in a healthy diet, for example, half a grapefruit with boiled egg for breakfast or a grapefruit diet (a serving of this fruit with each meal speeds up metabolism and weight loss). And if earlier talk about the benefits of grapefruit was often perceived as another myth, today its many of its properties are scientifically proven.

The benefits of grapefruit for men and for women are several. In men, the rate of elimination of itraconazole was similar to that taken with grapefruit juice or water. However, in women, grapefruit juice Continue reading
