When you go shopping to the supermarket do you have a problem in passing the candy aisle? Perhaps you get stuck at the sticky buns? I do believe that if you keep walking by all these treats you will feel and look a lot healthier.
It is widely believed that eating less pastry and other foods high in saturated fat will help you to maintain, or even in many cases, increase your levels of youth hormones, and that must be a great incentive to all women, maybe even men!
It is also a good idea to eat a handful of nuts, a primo source of monounsaturated fats. Follow the example of many people from the Mediterranean countries, by tossing a small amount of raw nuts on salads and veggies, especially almonds and walnuts.
I like to toss a few slices of avocado into my cheese sandwich, you can also mash the avocado with a little lemon juice, pepper and salt- delicious! Many women wonder if they should eat meat in their diets. Meat is an excellent source of protein. Our bodies use this protein to make amino acids. However, meat tends to be high in saturated fat and this is where the dilemma comes in. It is perfectly alright to eat meat as long as you keep the portions small, and do not eat any fat that surrounds the lean part. Same as for chicken, it is not advisable to eat chicken skin, even although it tastes great from your grill.
You could always add a little pork or steak to a stir-fry, I find that this way I get a little flavor of the meat without going overboard on calories. I would also advise that the best cooking oil is olive oil, preferably virgin olive oil.
Don’t forget the garlic!! Garlic has so many anti-aging benefits and it is also believed to help to thin the blood and therefore helps to lower cholesterol and that alone makes it well worthwhile adding to your stir-fry. You can also add it to spaghetti sauce, soups and stews just to name a few uses for this wonder bulb!
Oh! it is not easy trying to stave off old-age, but it sure is well worth a try.
Get Past Those Sticky Buns!
