Healthy catering and mind : Part II

Eat less salt

Adults at no more than 6 g per day and children even less. A high salt intake is associated with an increased risk of developing high blood pressure which puts you at a greater risk of developing stroke or heart disease. Most of our salt intake comes from processed foods rather than salt added during cooking or at the table, so always check food labels for the salt content!

When comparing foods, a high salt content is more than 1.5g salt per 100g (or 0.6g sodium). Low is 0.3g salt or less per 100g (or 0.1g sodium). Try using extra herbs, spices, citrus juices (lemon and lime), mustard or vinegar to flavour foods so you can use less salt in your recipes.

Don’t skip breakfast

A healthy breakfast can provide fibre, calories, vitamins and minerals important for health. Choose wholegrain cereals, porridge or wholemeal toast with fruit for a healthy start to the day.

Eat more fish

Aim for at least two portions per week and one of these should be oily.

Finally …

If you drink alcohol, keep within the recommended limits. Alcohol contains an extremely huge amount of sugar and it ruins your liver

Reaaally super healthy food:

– Eat Oily fish (omega-3) or a supplement.

– Avoid saturated fats & hydrogenated vegetable oil

– Eat protein with every meal

– Eat whole grain food – bread, pasta, brown rice.

– Eat a wide variety of foods

But as said previously remember that it is important to eat all types of food. So hamburgers and pizza are welcome but with moderation! It should one/two pizza a week and vegetables&fruits during the week!

Basically, healthy eating is when you eat a variety of foods that give you the nutriments you need to keep your body healthy. Instead of eating Pizza or Burger King (all the time), try getting chicken with salad. Keep your snack drawer stocked with snacks like nuts, oatmeal, granola bars, tuna and so on.
