wheatgerm for healthyfood nutrition

For anyone who is wheat intolerant (like me), but not allergic (coeliac disease), it is helpful to know that the vitamins, minerals and healthy fat content of the wheat seed is concentrated in the wheatgerm. The wheatgerm is only 2.5% (1 part in 40) of the whole seed, but has all the magnesium and zinc, and more concentrated protein than virtually all sources of meat and fish. The data

kiwi fruit - Cornwall allotments

Bought for the princely sum of £1 a couple of years ago from a supermarket: What was about 3 inches high has gradually grown into a reasonable bush, clinging to  net fencing on my allotment. I am very pleased to discover it has set lots of flowers. garden photos It has had all sorts of weather to contend with - up to 2 inches of rain a day (December to February), very cold and dry April,

eggs for health

For decades, eggs have had a bad press due to insufficient understanding of cholesterol. There has been more research in today's news praising the merits of hens eggs, and the over zealous fears of cholesterol. The body makes cholesterol, and manages its concentration. Eggs have many health benefit - especially well-fed and free range (weather permitting!) hens. Eggs are in fact an

Healthy Food Vitamins and diet for busy people

The food and nutrition research detailed in Superfoods - antioxidants shows that fruit with higher levels of antioxidants (e.g. blackberries) add the same level of antioxidants to the blood of the consumer as fruit with lower levels (e.g. raspberries). This being the case, presumably taking ten times the amount of antioxidants (e.g. the CRONIES, who have a huge bowl full of fresh berries and

optimum nutrition and poverty - healthy food bargains & education beat advertising

Recent 'health' news from the poor districts in South Wales is appalling: Following on from our article on the real 'superfoods' that aren't widely promoted by the food 'industry', here is very sad news that victims of such corporations believe that fresh fruit and vegetables are more expensive than junk food, fast food and convenience foods. Scurvy and rickets are both reappearing in

optimum food for free range hens - sprouting wheat for vitamins

It is clear to me, having kept 'free range' hens, that layers pellets are not the only food they need or like. They clearly like grass, especially young short shoots, but in the winter the grass either doesn't grow here (Cornwall) or it is drowned and the hens turn the whole plot to mud if they have access. I also feed mixed poultry corn: 90% wheat and 10 % maize, but several facts have led to

the diet rules that don't waver with fashion

We seem to be bombarded with information and 'research' on healthy diets, and the narrowly focussed research can be particularly confusing - especially when it is funded by vested interests. There are some guidelines that experienced nutritionists always advocate, and they are relatively easy to follow. Fat: The best fats are not saturated, and are naturally occurring. Examples are nuts, oats

healthy foods don't advertise (wellbeing, nutrition v corporations)

Abstract: Evidence based dietary guidelines contrasted with corporate funded science and corporate funded advertising. It is a scientifically tested fact that - other factors such as exercise, genetics, habits being equal - people eating a diet rich in antioxidants suffer less from heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and the degenerative diseases associated with ageing.

Get yer hands on some yams!

I never thought that I could change from eating the common white potato. But after reading about how little nutrition they provide..plus..there is heavy chemical use in their production...I switched to eating yams.
