The benefits of coconut oil!

What does coconut oil do? not too long ago we didn’t understand the true health benefits of coconut oil and even believed it to be an unhealthy alternative to other oils. yet many health professionals claim that coconut oil is unlike other oils and in fact contributes to keeping our bodies healthy in many ways. possibly one of coconut oils most enticing benefits is that it can actually aid weight loss. it contains a high proportion of medium chain fatty acids and when we consume coconut oil, our bodies find it difficult to convert it to stored fat; making it easier to burn off. free radicals occur naturally in the body and have the potential to cause harm to other cells which could then potentially lead to them becoming cancerous. coconut oil contains potential antioxidant properties due to plant nutrients called phenolic compounds, meaning that including coconut oil in your everyday diet, could potentially prevent cancerous cells from forming. how can you incorporate coconut oil into your diet to aid weight loss? coconut is widely available across supermarkets and health food stores. 500g costs approximately £5 and will usually last for several weeks, depending on what you use it for. it keeps well at room temperature and whilst lard like in appearance, it turns to liquid when heated and solidifies again when cooled. cooking you can use coconut oil for cooking instead of using other oils such as olive or sunflower oil. coconut oil gives cooked food a light coconut flavour which is very pleasant and if you don’t appreciate it initially, it doesn’t take long until you barely notice the flavour. baking coconut oil is ideal as a substitute for butter, margarine or sunflower oil in baking. as coconut oil doesn’t convert to fat in the same way as other oils and fats, it is considered to be a much healthier alternative in baking and if you use honey, stevia or dried fruit to sweeten baking, it is possible to enjoy baked goods as part of a low-calorie diet. hunger because of the way fatty acids are metabolized, coconut oil can reduce your hunger and over a period of time can significantly affect body weight. coconut oil is quickly becoming a staple ingredient in many kitchens across the country and around the world and when taken regularly and used within a low-calorie diet, it is now believed that coconut will bring significant health benefits as well as aid weight loss.

Do you eat enough fruits & veggies?

You must have heard it a 1000 times that you must eat enough fruits and veggies in order to lose weight and stay healthy. but the reports published by cdc, highlighted that only 9% people are having the recommended daily serving of veggies and only 13% of people are eating enough fruits. this is an alarming signal as in addition to the numerous health benefits including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, etc. – they are low in calories, but have lots of water and fiber, making them very filling. furthermore, varied studies have shown a positive relationship between fruit and veggie consumfption and feeling good, which includes feelings of well-being,and creativity, as well as greater self-control and more initiative. still not convinced? studies have shown that positive activities like eating fruits and veggies are more likely to result in positive activities; simply meaning that if you feel good about what you’re eating, you may be more motivated to exercise. as the per the recommendations given by u.s. government’s myplate, adults should eat between 1½ to 2 cups of fruit & 2- 3 cups of vegetables per day, varying on the basis of age and gender. so today we have got simple tips that will help you increase your fruits and veggies consumption without putting in any extra efforts:- 1. make fruits & veggies your snacks instead of snacking on chips, cookies, or other less-than-healthy munchies, try committing to only eating fruits or vegetables as snacks. when hungry just grab a fruit or enjoy fresh veggies like – sliced peppers, baby carrots, cucumber with a a healthy dip including hummus, salsa, or yogurt. 2. eat fruits for dessert it’s not always easy to ween ourselves off the high-sugar diet we’re used to, but replacing high sugar desserts with fruits is a great alternative to reduce the calorie intake and also increase the consumption of fruits. try fresh berries, peaches, plums, or a pear for dessert. 3. don’t forget the the frozen ones you aren’t limited to just what’s in your grocery store’s produce section. frozen fruit and vegetables which can be added to your oats, porridge; are just as healthy as the fresh variety. 4. make veggies the star of the dish often we relegate vegetables to the side of our plate, which makes it tough to get enough — not to mention, when they’re the side dish, we usually give them less of our culinary attention. instead, it is suggested that you have vegetarian meals once or twice per week for dinner and make vegetables the focal point of your meal. 5. pile it up many of your favorite recipes, including pasta, bruschettas, casseroles, etc. can be easily bulked up with extra veggies. if you’re dealing with picky eaters, this is a great way to make a meal the whole family will enjoy. most importantly, remember that rather than considering it a task make the dishes rich in taste and flavors so that instead of becoming a gulping down activity it becomes a savory one. so now, its time to enjoy a bowl of fresh fruits and vegetables… hurry up!

Is honey vegan?

Even after doing all the efforts and being extra careful on every move, it is totally impossible for humans to live a harm-free life. humans for their existence are used to displacing or destroying large and small life forms in each an every activity be it erection of buildings, planting seeds, digging crops, burning wood, flying airplanes, driving cars, or operating factories. then there are some people who have a difference in their intent, which leads to classification of humans into two major heads – vegetarians and non-vegetarians. further, there are vegans who consciously strive to do no harm to any sentient life, including insects. this does not mean that vegans do not hurt others inadvertently, but that it is never their aim to do so. vegans are very specific that they do not consume anything or engage in any activity which causes a direct or indirect harm to any living thing. one of the common debating question faced by vegans is related to honey – “is honey vegan?” honey which can be essentially termed as bee vomit is something that is collected by the honey bees from sucrose-rich flower nectar. it is then stored in the cells of their hive and used as their sole source of nutrition when alternative food sources are not available. the honey that bees produce is stored in their hives for their own purposes. when humans remove honey from the hive, they take something that is not rightfully theirs. further, to collect honey, beekeepers temporarily remove the bees from their home and during the process, even the most careful beekeeper cannot avoid inadvertently injuring, squashing, or otherwise killing some of the bees. although the consumption of honey is not deemed as the most important concern for vegans but the fact worth considering is that it is nevertheless an animal product. further, the 1944 manifesto of the british vegan society, a position consistent with the requirement for full (vegan) membership in the american vegan society since its inception in 1960 has also prohibited the consumption of honey by vegans. the bottom line of the discussion can be concluded that though sweeteners are not at all necessary for humans as they do not have any essential nutrients, but still if vegans want to indulge in sweets, there are many substitutes available like organic, unbleached cane sugar; beet sugar; maple syrup; agave nectar; concentrated fruit syrups; rice syrup; barley malt; and sorghum syrup, among others. we do not need to choose between exploiting humans or bees in order to satisfy our sweet tooth. concerned vegans can avoid it completely eliminating sweets from their diet or by choosing compassionate alternatives.
