Recommended foods

The list of recommended products is long enough, which means that everything is not so scary: there are plenty to choose from.
If there is an alternative when shopping for poultry, go for turkey. A turkey, unlike chicken, does not tolerate any vaccinations, injections, it dies immediately, so this meat is much cleaner.

Kefir and fermented baked milk for people suffering from dysbiosis or having a predisposition to candidiasis, it is better to replace it with yogurt and / or natural home-made yogurt (without sugar, dyes and preservatives), since fungi are used in the production of kefir and fermented baked milk, and in the manufacture of curdled milk and yoghurt - useful lactic acid bacteria.

In general, healthy dairy products cannot be stored for more than 5-7 days. An advertisement promising to saturate our intestines with beneficial bifidobacteria and lactobacilli using sugar-containing yoghurts is not telling the truth.

In nature, sugar and living beneficial bacteria are practically incompatible things. Therefore, all dairy products designed to improve immune function are nothing more than a delicacy.

A bottle of the well-known sweet drinking yogurt for strengthening the immune system (100 ml) contains 1.5 teaspoons of sugar!
The usefulness of yoghurt with fruit pieces is a myth from the same series. The strangest thing is that they are kept for a very long time.

Do an experiment at home: add pieces of fruit or berries to kefir or natural yogurt and watch what happens to them in a week.

Real unrefined brown sugar is not cheap, be careful: there is a lot of colored white sugar on store shelves, which is passed off as brown cane sugar by manufacturers.

It has long been known that life is without bittersweet! But there is also a delicious combination - dark chocolate. If the specified percentage of cocoa is more than 75% - feel free to take it - this is not a harmful product. While, for example, a bar of milk chocolate (100 g) contains 12 teaspoons of sugar! We all know how easily many women know how to "sentence" such a tile during the working day.

Choose marshmallows and marshmallows with a minimum shelf life of 2-2.5 months.

Marmalade today is not a dietary product, but it is still recommended by nutritionists. This delicacy contains a huge amount of dyes, flavor enhancers and acids. Modern fruit jelly can be used as an air flavoring agent.

Good quality dried fruits (raisins, dried apricots, prunes, dates, etc.) are not very attractive in appearance. Try to find dried fruits that were cooked without added sugar (on the boxes in which, for example, such dates are packed, the calorie content is much lower, and the dates themselves do not look sugared).

From legumes we recommend to get acquainted with such a novelty in our market as chickpeas. Chickpeas contain the most easily digestible vegetable protein of all legumes.
In our food tradition, legumes are not very popular, but in vain. If someone does not perceive the specific taste of legumes, then chickpeas will most likely like such people: it has a very noble, nutty, not pea flavor at all.
And how much healthy and tasty you can make from it: hummus, falafel, chickpea-carrot cutlets (by the way, practically indistinguishable from potato pancakes), etc.

Chickpea and lentil flour can completely replace unhealthy wheat flour for making savory pastries: pie with any filling of your choice - fish, cabbage, mushrooms; Pudla pancakes (Vedic cuisine), which can also be filled with a variety of vegetable fillings and served as an independent main course.
Like, feast on pancakes, and this is protein, and not just empty carbs.

As we have already found out, cholesterol is the basis for the production of sex hormones.
Thus, the dietary system of both adolescent girls and adult women must necessarily include the required amount of saturated and unsaturated fats. The exclusion of essential fats from the diet, the passion for low-fat diets threaten girls, young girls and women with hormonal problems, and women of age - a severe course of menopause.

Avocado is an excellent supplier of easily digestible fats..

Sausages and semi-finished meat products, pork, refined oils, mayonnaise, margarines, spreads and pastries with them (ready-made cakes, waffles and waffle cakes, cookies, crackers, dryers, honey cake, etc.) should be excluded from your list of products. ...

The diet of any person, especially children, must be balanced in relation to the fatty acids necessary for the body. This means that substances such as omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 must be present in the daily diet in a 1: 1: 1 ratio.

The traditional source of omega-9 is unrefined extra virgin olive oil. Moreover, it is still thermally stable and does not form carcinogens when heated.

The source of omega-3 is fish oil and flaxseed oil (1 tsp per day).

Please note that it is not recommended to limit yourself to taking exclusively flaxseed oil, since of the fatty acids important for the body, this plant product contains only a-linolenic, the most primitive of these substances, and eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and decosahexaenoic acids (DHA), which are especially necessary for our body, contain in fish oil. It is in these acids, which are deficient for our habitual nutrition, that the membranes of all cells need.

When it comes to omega-3 fats as nutritional fortifiers, their origin must be taken into account. The liver of fish in our time has ceased to be a safe source of essential fats due to an increase in the toxic load on this organ due to the deterioration of the environmental situation in the world.

Therefore, it is necessary to select only the omega-3 food supplement that is isolated from the muscle tissue of deep-sea fish of the northern seas.
