7 Facts You Didn’t Know About Ayurveda

May 30, 2019 14 Comments
Almost 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda was born and it brought a very drastic change to health care. With the use of natural herbs and minerals, ayurvedic medicines have been treating millions. The term Ayurveda took birth by combining two words - “Ayur” means life and “Veda” means knowledge and it is all about life-rejuvenating practices. 

Though Ayurvedic medicines have its roots in sacred historical books, science has evolved over the ages to become even more operative and integrated than before. It is the science of life as well as a holistic system of medicine that guides the body to live harmoniously with a perfect balance between the body, mind, and environment. Ayurveda classifies the five elements as the building blocks of all matter i.e. air, space, water, fire, and earth. 
7 Facts You Didn’t Know About Ayurveda
According to the science, these 5 elements are energetically represented in the human body and the combination of these elements lead to one’s Ayurvedic identity i.e. Dosha. The three doshas are - Vata (space & air), Pitta (fire & water) and Kapha (earth). Ayurveda is a vast study and there are some things that many people still don’t know. Worry not! Discover some very interesting unknown facts about Ayurveda and get amazed by the immensity of this field of medicine below:

1. It is all about the doshas: While many may scoff at this idea, the three doshas define a person’s health and personality. An Ayurvedic practitioner can tell what disease a person is suffering from just by taking a patient’s pulse and understanding the balance of the doshas. A Kapha imbalance may lead to ailments like congestion, swelling, lung problems, and lethargy while a Pitta patient may experience inflammation of joints, tissues and organs or migraines, neck stiffness, etc. 

2. No specialist in this field: Unlike allopathy and modern science, Ayurveda doesn’t have a specialist for every different disease. There is no orthopedician, gastroenterologist, dermatologist, cardiologist but just a holistic Ayurveda practitioner. Too many cooks spoil the broth holds true in this case and Ayurveda helps a patient from running to different doctors for different ailments. Because the different systems of the body are strongly connected to each other, curing one dosha imbalance helps pacify another as well and that is the essence of Ayurveda. The science looks at the body as a whole and focuses on bringing in harmony between the body, mind, and soul to allow a person to feel healthy. 

3. NO Side Effects: This is one of the best facts about ayurvedic medicines. The medicines are mainly obtained from pure herbs and minerals. The science basically uses what is available in nature’s bounty and thus is not known to have any side effects. The chemicals in allopathic medicines have grave side effects and that is why people assume that Ayurvedic medicines also have side effects but this is not true. Having said this, anything in excess can be harmful. That is where Dr. Vaidya’s doctors come into play.  The in house team of expert doctors can guide a patient on the medicines and dosages for effective results. 

4. The factors of diagnosis: Ayurveda uses the Astavidha rogi pareeksha or eight method system to examine a patient. These methods involve checking a person’s pulse, urine, stool, voice, tongue, skin, eyes and body build. This helps a doctor to understand which humor could be imbalanced and give medicines according to the need. 

5. Health attunes to the atmosphere: It might be a little difficult to believe but according to Ayurveda what a person eats, drinks, how a person feels can also affect one’s health. These environmental conditions mitigate one’s doshas and hence if a person’s environment isn’t good, the dosha is mostly aggravated and this results in health issues. 

6. Kills the cause, not the symptoms: Ayurvedic medicine, unlike other Western medicine, treats a disease by attacking the root cause. It doesn’t fix the symptoms but treats the disease at the root level of the problem. This may take longer to action but results in a long lasting result too i.e. removing ‘ama’ (an ailment) from the body and thus allowing the body to function properly. 

7. It has specialties: While Ayurveda doesn’t have specialists for every health issue, it does have specialties or different branches of treatment. Rasayana (rejuvenation), Shalya-chikitsa (surgery), Agadatantram (toxicology), Shalakya (diseases above the shoulder), Kaayachikitsa (internal medicine), Kaumarabhrutyam (pediatrics), Vajikaranam (aphrodisiacs), Bhutavidya (psychiatry) are some of the specialties of Ayurvedic medicine. These approaches treat every complication encountered by the human body in a different manner and thus give effective results.

These were some of the interesting facts about Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the science of life. Thus, it is a lifestyle that one shall undertake to feel a difference in the body rather than just curative medicine. Ayurveda is a holistic union of mind, body, and soul that involves ingestion, digestion, absorption, assimilation, and metabolism to create the perfect balance of the body.

Caffeine Showdown Coffee VS Tea

March 26, 2019 10 Comments
First and foremost, drinking coffee is tightly connected to insomnia, and we simply cannot imagine our life without a cup of coffee in the early morning. The first thing we make is a cup of strong coffee to keep you vigorous during the whole day long. This marvelous drink makes you smarter, better, faster and stronger. The same goes for tea. The science of hot drinks hides the unrevealed.  The question of the usefulness of tea and coffee for health bothers any person almost daily. As soon as we pour a steaming aromatic cup of coffee or brew some tea, the invisible controller inside of us asks the eternal question - is not it harmful to health? In general, what is more useful - tea or coffee? Let's try to understand these issues from the standpoint of modern dietology. 
Caffeine Showdown Coffee VS Tea
According to the dietology, tea and coffee are related to taste products. Drinks from tea and coffee have a taste, tonic, thirst and therapeutic value. They are part of the daily diet of people.

It should be noted that dry tea, grains and coffee powder contain all the main food substances. They have a lot of potassium, in coffee - vitamin PP, in tea - vitamin B2. However, the nutrients contained in that dry amount of tea and coffee, which is necessary for the preparation of drinks, play a very minor role in the daily diet. Significantly more important are the many biologically active components that makeup tea and coffee, in particular, caffeine, flavonoids, tannins.

Caffeine stimulates the accumulation of the macroergic compounds necessary for it to function properly in cells. This excites the central nervous system, stimulates the activity of the cardiovascular system (increases muscle contraction and increases rhythm, leads to increased blood pressure), increases heat production and urination, and increases the secretion of the stomach.

Everyone knows that coffee affects the body more than tea. The fact is that the caffeine of tea is associated with tannin and therefore its effect is weaker, but theophylline tea stimulates urination stronger than caffeine. However, the addition of milk and cream in tea or coffee softens the effect of caffeine.

Is it harmful to drink coffee and can it be part of a healthy diet? Let us discuss this issue.

1. It may be hard to say whether coffee is good or bad for you. The reception of strong coffee causes a short-term increase in blood pressure, which can worsen the condition of patients with essential hypertension. However, large-scale studies conducted in a number of developed countries have not revealed a direct relationship between the prevalence of hypertension and the intake of coffee.

2. Similarly, the relationship between coffee consumption and the development of malignant tumors has not been confirmed.

3. It should be noted that coffee grains contain a number of substances that have been found to promote the increase of cholesterol in the blood. People who are especially scrupulous about their health, in this regard, can advise the following: these compounds can be extracted with hot water and filtered through a paper filter.

4. The International Operational Group for the Prevention of IHD and the International Society of Atherosclerosis included not only tea but also coffee in the list of drinks recommended for ischemic heart disease. Although, soluble or filtered on the coffee machine.

5. In many developed countries, there were no differences in the overall mortality (from all causes) among few or not drinking coffee people and among its lovers, but without abuse more than 4 cups of coffee a day, if each contains at least 1 teaspoon of instant coffee).

When coffee is especially useful?
  1. Coffee can temporarily help some migraine sufferers during an attack of headaches.
  2. Arterial hypotension (people with low blood pressure).
  3. Chronic heart failure, depending on the rhythm of the heart.
  4. Asthenia (physical and neuropsychiatric weakness) after prolonged chronic diseases.
  5. Reduced secretory function of the stomach or motor function of the gallbladder.

When should you be careful?

1. Strong black coffee can adversely affect the diseases of the esophagus (reflux esophagitis), the stomach with increased secretion (gastritis, peptic ulcer).

2. With the increased motor function of the gallbladder.

3. With the increased emotional function of the intestine - irritable bowel syndrome.

If there are pains, heartburn, belching or other uncomfortable symptoms after drinking coffee, then it should be excluded from the diet. However, individual features are possible.

4. Strong coffee is not recommended for adverse reactions to it in patients with hypertension, Parkinson's disease, glaucoma, with increased heart rate (tachycardia), heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias).

5. You should not drink coffee in the afternoon if suffering from insomnia.

Let's talk about tea

Black or green tea is obtained depending on the method of treatment. It should be noted that green tea contains more substances inherent in the leaves of the tea bush. It is known that when brewing green tea about 45-50% of its substances remain in the infusion, while in black - 30-40%.

Useful properties of tea

1. Green tea quenches thirst better, however, there are more flavoring and aromatic substances, as well as caffeine available for the body in black tea.

2. Green tea helps to reduce swelling.

3. Tea catechins have an antioxidant effect, binding excess free radicals in the body, while the antioxidant capacity of green tea is 2.5 times higher than that of black tea.

5. Tea catechins are classified as anti-cancer factors for the development of certain oncological and cardiovascular diseases.

6. Strong tea contains a significant amount of theophylline, expanding the bronchi so it can be the first self-help tool to relieve faint bouts of bronchial asthma.

7. Strong tea, especially green, is useful for diarrhea, but it is not recommended if you suffer from constipation.

8. Strong tea is also useful in those painful conditions in which coffee is recommended, especially if the patient does not like coffee.

Modern Dietetics says that not strong tea can be drunk by almost all sick people, but there are restrictions in the consumption of strong tea:

1. Tannins of tea bind to iron so that strong tea during and after meals should be limited in the diet of patients with iron deficiency anemia.

2. Strong tea should not be consumed together with iron preparations or multivitamin-mineral preparations.

3. There are restrictions for strong tea, which are of an individual nature: increased excitability, insomnia, tachycardia, deterioration of well-being in arterial hypertension.

The therapeutic diet includes various fruit and berry and herbal teas. For example, with raspberries and lime flowers - for colds, with rose hips and corn stigmas - for diseases of the gallbladder.

You can drink coffee drinks (coffee-surrogate) as well, which are reminiscent of the taste of coffee but not containing caffeine. They are prepared from fried and ground barley, oats, rye, chicory, chestnuts, soy, acorns, dog rose. At the same time, the nutritional value of many coffee drinks is higher than that of natural coffee. Manufacturers add from 5 to 35% of natural coffee in coffee drinks, while other coffee drinks do not contain it at all.

More good fats instead of bad. A body requires saturated fats for metabolic processes. Saturated fats are butter, ghi, coconut oil, red palm oil.   Avoid trans-fats, received artificially. Margarine, mayonnaise, ketchup, chips. Consume more olive oil and stop using sweat oil while cooking. 

Refined oil is the reason for inflammatory conditions. Butter oil is better for braising and grilling, especially when it comes to cooking at moderately high temperatures. 

Avoid artificial sweeteners. Refuse from aspartame. IT is a dipeptide sweetener. Consuming this product leads to chronic fatigue, depression, headache, muscle cramps, allergies…
What Is Clean Eating and How to Eat Clean Right
There is no evidence that aspartame does harm health if you are not going to refuse from this product, for now, cut it down. You should know that there is aspartame in many fizzy drinks, bubble gums, cough syrup, sweets, yoghurts and even vitamins.  It is frightful to think of the fact that everything children and pregnant women eat contains aspartame.

Have a breakfast every morning. Having a breakfast every morning, you will never feel hungry like a wolf by the lunchtime. Morning food intake, nutritionally dense, strengthens concentration and immune system. Perfect breakfast consists of carbohydrates and proteins, for example, muesli, fruits, berries and natural yoghurt. Choose muesli without stabilizers and food additives.

Avoid additives. Excludeproductscontaining food grade dye, preservatives, food flavours. Many readymade products contain them, such as chips, dry breadcrumbs. Read a list of ingredients attentively, the easier it is to read, the less non-natural substances it contains. 

Cutsugarconsumption. Manyproductscontainrefinedsugar. Eventually, it will make it to where you gain weight or get diabetes. Simple carbohydrates are hidden behind such names as maltodextrin and dextrose. You would never guess when you are to find them, for example, in sausages. Stevia is going to be very much in use, which is a natural sweetener containing 0 calories, diabetics can have it and people suffering from obesity. One can use it for baking just as well. 

Many parents set a limit on sweets for their children or even do not give them any at all. It is undoubtedly the right decision. A child`s immune system suffers from sugar. Calcium is lost in the process of the white poison processing and we see dental caries as a result let alone fragile bones. The deadliest is that sugar is food for cancer cells. Before setting a limit on sweets for your little one, refuse from it by yourself. A parent is the first teacher for one`s child and s/he should not teach what s/he does not do by him/herself.

Classic Dishes to Add to Your Christmas Dinner Menu

January 04, 2019 7 Comments
What dishes to choose for the Christmas menu? Usually, the hosts start thinking about this question immediately after the end of the New Year celebration. If this year the responsibility for the Christmas menu fell on your shoulders, this article will gladly help you to lay a delicious, hearty table for the joy of family and friends, making the holiday enjoyable, bright and memorable. 

First of all, of course, you should decide on a hot one - will it be one signature dish or several, a classic or a fascinating culinary experiment? If a large number of people gather at the festive table, it will be more convenient to prepare one large dish for all than to spend time on portioned dishes for each guest. 
For example, Christmas meat with sauerkraut and potatoes. It is also much more practical to bake a large piece of meat, then to cut it in portions, than to cook a large number of chops. So, a 4-pound piece of meat will be enough for 12 people. All you need is to marinate it well, fill it if you wish, coat it with glaze and put it to the oven. You should admit that it is a child`s play. Turkey roll with bacon, "New Year's Feast" meat in the oven or oven-baked boiled pork - an excellent proof of this.

If you decide to bake poultry, then a 5-pound chicken or turkey is quite enough to feed eight people. Stuff it with prunes with walnuts and decorate with caramelized apples, oranges, and greens - this fantastically beautiful and incredibly tasty dish will lead your guests to indescribable delight. Baked chicken with potatoes and rosemary, "Surprise" stuffed chicken or duck with potatoes will look very festive on the table. Seafood lovers will surely appreciate the stuffed pike or baked fish rolls with vegetables.

Of course, every family has culinary traditions maintained for many years, but a holiday is an abundance and a riot of tastes, vivid emotions, and impressions, which means the best time to venture on culinary experiments and try gastronomic delights. Do not be afraid to combine traditional dishes with new and unusual - for example,  exotic appetizers and salads will complement the classic hot dish. Besides, the same classic can be served in the original version, completing it with a variety of ingredients, for example, to cook meat baked with pineapples or chicken kiwi chops with cheese. 

Christmas is a great occasion to make salads and snacks that you wanted but could not make for the New Year. And now you can slowly and without fuss do the dishes, the embodiment of which you had to postpone, as well as devote more time to decorating plates. Christmas potato salad, Bright Holiday salad, Stargazer layered salad, and Tsarsky salad will perfectly fit into the Christmas menu thanks to the excellent taste and festive appearance. 

At Christmas, you can also dream up with traditional New Year salads, presenting them in a new version. For example, your guests will be pleasantly surprised if you give them Russian salad with salmon or salt herring salad. Snacks can be approached no less creatively by preparing Christmas wreath canapés, stuffed with crab sticks or “Fungal pieces". 

The most straightforward options for meals are tartlets, the filling of which can be the most diverse, and stuffed eggs. Their preparation usually does not take much time. If you want to give these traditional snacks a touch of originality, make tartlets with crabmeat pies or eggs stuffed with herring.

The Christmas menu, perhaps, especially needs a sweet dessert, since the table for Christmas is usually not as lush as on the New Year, which means that by the end of the meal guests still have a little room for something tasty in the stomach. Therefore, traditional gingerbread, orange cake, Christmas cinnamon buns or the “Yule log" cake will fall in handy here. 

Each holiday has its taste, and at New Year's holidays it is, above all, the flavor of fragrant spices, so be sure to shade your desserts with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom or cloves. Also, add a festive touch of sweet dishes will help orange peel. Do not want to bother with baking? No problem! Beautifully decorated fruit plate, berry jelly, soft mousse, baked apples with dried apricots and nuts or hand-made truffles will also be an excellent final note in the Christmas menu.

In winter, more than ever, you want warmth and comfort, which is why warming spicy drinks are particularly topical on the menu. It can be mulled wine with lemon, honey grog or Christmas cacao with cream. It is better to exclude strong alcoholic drinks altogether and serve champagne, wines, liqueurs and homemade cocktails instead.

Christmas menu is another way to give your loved ones a tasty holiday, wrapping them with care and warmth of home comfort. Bon appetite and unlimited happiness in the coming year!

Later, you have to scan the area and check whether there are broken quills. Get in touch with the doctor in such a situation. If you are unable to go to the doctor, then you should sterilize tongs, let them cool down and remove the broken tip from the wound.

Now, you need to wipe the wound with a cotton ball soaked in Hydrogen Peroxide. Sterile alcohol pads that come with first-aid kits would also be useful. Think about using a mild soap if nothing is available at the medical store.

You then have to apply an antibiotic cream, wrap them with a bandage and monitor the wounds for infection. In case the pain persists, then you should take a rabies vaccine as quickly as possible. 

Finally, you should always reduce the chances of getting pricked when you are moving around. To keep yourself away from porcupines, you should always step out when the animals are inactive.

Matching steps with changing lifestyles, we must also update our diet regularly at each stage of our lives. And if you thought you could shrug off hormonal imbalances just because you are young, well you are wrong. A growing number of young adults, especially students, often have to resort to taking assignment help online due to illnesses mostly contracted as a result of hormonal imbalances. This post thus talks about the 12 foods that can help restore your hormonal balance, leading you towards a healthier and happier lifestyle. 

12 super-foods you need for balancing your hormones

Around 50 hormones constitute our entire bodies, but a few are more important than others. The essential hormones control important functions like reproduction, weight, and stress factors for our bodies. Read on to know the three primary types of hormones and the foods that can help bring about a balance in them. 

Thyroid hormones

Responsible for energy and metabolism functions, thyroid hormones include calcitonin, T3, and T4. The pituitary gland secretes TSH that regulates thyroid levels in the body. Sometimes, an inability to create thyroid hormones, iodine deficiency and autoimmunity issues may hamper thyroid production, and attack thyroid tissue. Here are 4 wonder foods that help keep thyroid levels in check.

1. Seaweed

Ever wondered why the people from the Far East have lesser hormonal imbalance-related health issues? It is because they have a steady flow of seaweed or sea vegetables in their diet. Eating seaweed like wakame, dulse, nori, kombu and hijiki will help you load up on iodine, which helps in creating thyroid hormones in our body. Time for a visit to that sushi place round the corner, eh?

2. Spinach

Spinach has tonnes of iron. It enhances the thyroid functions of the body, and helps in producing thyroid hormones. With a fair share of vitamin B content, spinach can also be a ready cure for fatigue and sluggishness. Take a cue from Popeye, the sailor-man, and load up on your daily spinach intake!

3. Brazil nuts

Loaded with selenium, two brazil nuts a day can keep thyroid issues at bay! Selenium, an antioxidant, works to protect the thyroid gland and convert T4 into T3, the active thyroid hormone. What’s more, they taste awesome as well!

4. Quinoa

Almost all celebrity diets contain quinoa, and rightly so. An excellent source of minerals, protein and fibre, quinoa helps in keeping up the pace in your bowels. It is also a fabulous source of zinc, a mineral that helps in manufacturing thyroid hormones. Bookmark those quinoa recipes today!

Reproductive hormones

Reproductive hormones like oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone regulate our reproduction, libido, and organ growth. Apart from puberty or menopause, poor diet or lifestyle choices and exposure to toxins can often create an imbalance in our reproductive hormones. Here are 4 foods that can help regulate that. 

5. Organic tempeh

“Any great nutritionist would swear by their miso bowls”, says Norah Hopkins, senior subject matter expert. A mother of two, she suffered from hormonal imbalances that led to reproductive complications, and now she’s all about organic tempeh. Recounting her experience, she says that beta-glucuronidase enzymes in miso and tempeh help to combat oestrogen-related cancers and are rich in probiotics, which are essential in balancing the oestrogen hormone. 

6. Flax seeds

Flax seeds contain antioxidants. Hence, it should be a part of any healthy diet. However, for people with a hormonal imbalance, it can be the magic food that cures it all. Flax seeds are a superb source of phytoestrogens that help in the excretion of excess oestrogen from our bodies. Flax seeds are great in combating other hormone-related issues like breast cancer, osteoporosis, and menopausal symptoms as well. Quick tip: do not refrigerate flax seeds, or they lose their antioxidant properties!

7. Broccoli

Broccolis are rich in glucosinolates, a type of sulphur compound that eliminates and neutralises carcinogens. Additionally, broccoli also has isothiocyanates and indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that are great for preventing oestrogen-related cancers. To top it all off, broccolis are high in fibre, which helps eliminate excess reproductive hormones through regular bowel movements. 

8. Wild salmon

Loaded in vitamin D, salmons help manufacture our reproductive hormones. They also increase testosterone levels, and power up bone health and immunity of our bodies. Salmon has plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, which are proven to reduce breast cancer and prostate cancer risks. So don’t hesitate to order that appetising salmon entree the next time you decide to dine out!

Adrenal hormones

Adrenal hormones like cortisol, adrenaline, aldosterone and DHEA help us manage stress. Insomnia, poor diet choices and prolonged exposure to emotional and physical stress lead to adrenal hormone imbalances. The following 4 foods can bring adrenal hormones back on track. 

9. Eggs

One of the most versatile of foods, eggs are awesome in so many ways! Choline vitamins from eggs help our bodies manufacture neurotransmitter acetylcholine which keeps the nervous system, memory and brain health in check. The anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids from eggs protect and support the brain in its normal functions, keeping stress levels in check as well. Always remember to pick organic or farm-hatched ones to bring egg-scellent health your way!

10. Kale

Kale gives you vitamin A, B and C. This dark and leafy vegetable works wonders for keeping up your adrenaline levels. That, in turn, keeps nervous systems running smoothly. This antioxidant-enriched veggie is a great weapon against stress, bringing down the damage levels remarkably. If you think kale smoothies are taking it too far, try pasta or salad recipes with the same!

11. Bell peppers

Vitamin C is essential for the functions of the adrenal glands. Bell peppers have tonnes of them! Our adrenals usually store up on vitamin C reserves and stress makes us use most of it. Bell peppers replenish vitamin C levels for our adrenal glands. Bell peppers also have loads of vitamin B to offer that energises us, and keep a check on our stress levels. The best thing is, bell peppers go with any diet, and taste yum too!

12. Avocado

Adrenal hormones are prone to recurring issues due to fluctuating blood sugar levels, and too much sweet intake hinders the functions of the adrenal glands. Avocados help combat the rising blood sugar levels. They are loaded with healthy fats that support our nervous systems. Top that with a healthy dose of vitamin B5 to handle stress like a pro, and you have got a winner among the veggies, right here! Indulge in that guac platter all you like, for avocados are friends for your adrenal hormones.

Parting words

One look at cooking channels on YouTube will tell you that eating healthy can have a super-tasty twist too! From quinoa piecrusts to energising kale smoothies, there’s a lot you can do with the healthy, hormone-balancing foods listed above. Include the 12 foods in your diet, and you will never have to worry about hormonal imbalance, ever again! Here’s wishing you a happier and healthier life ahead!

Myths and Truth about the Valuable Properties of Juice

November 29, 2018 8 Comments
Can one find vitamins in packaged juice? 
What juice is best to drink through a straw?

It is more useful to eat a whole fruit or vegetable than to drink juice from it. This is true. Fruits and vegetables contain dietary fibers, which, not digested, pass through the gastrointestinal tract and remove the products of metabolism, excess cholesterol, glucose. 
As a result, they contribute to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes of the second type. Packaged juices, because of the high sugar content (which it is often added by manufacturers as a natural preservative) are not recommended to those who have elevated blood sugar levels. 

However, there are people who have certain violations in the work of the digestive organs, and therefore they do not tolerate cellulose. It is better for them to replace vegetables and fruits with juices.

Juicesare better to drink on an empty stomach. Not all of them, of course. It is not recommended to drink juices before meals to patients with increased secretion of the stomach, since they negatively affect the mucosa. 

However, if the acidity of the stomach is lowered, then drinking juice on an empty stomach is useful. Juices, especially vegetable ones, stimulate the production of gastric enzymes, so they are useful to drink to improve digestion before eating.

Juice, like fruit, is useful in any quantity. Still, drinking juices as water is not worth it. In addition to useful vitamins and macro- and microelements, juices, especially fruit juices, contain a lot of sugar. 

For example, apple juice contains 9-11% (this is fructose, glucose and sucrose), while the grape one up to 15%. The fat enters the body not only with food, as it is being synthesized from sugar. The fastest of all is soluble sugar. Therefore, it is recommended to drink no more than 0.5-1 cup of freshly squeezed juice.

Freshly squeezed juice can be stored in the refrigerator. It is possible, but it must be taken into account that after cooking, useful substances and vitamins start to volatilize immediately and vitamin C is quickly destroyed. 

Therefore, freshly squeezed juice should be drunk no later than 10 minutes after cooking. Otherwise, it will not differ much from the packaged one. By the way, the open package of juice should not be stored in the refrigerator for more than a day - then mold begins to start there. Moreover, not always it can be seen right away.

Juices should be diluted with water. This is recommended for children and the elderly. The child often asks for juice to quench his thirst, and parents agree, thinking that the juice is better than water. 

However, the more sugar in the juice, the more thirst it will cause - that is, the child will want to drink again and again. If you dilute the juice with water 1:1, the child willquench his thirst faster. If there is a tendency to flatulence, bloating (such problems often occur in the elderly, when the normal micro flora of the intestine is disturbed), it is also better to dilute the juice. The abundance of sugars - glucose, fructose - enhances the processes of fermentation in the intestine.

Juices from acidic fruits, such as citrus, destroy the enamel of the teeth. The reason for this is a large amount of organic acids. To exclude therisk, you can drink this juice through the straw so that it does not come in contact with the teeth. 

Alternatively,you can brush your teeth immediately after drinking citrus juice. At least, immediately rinse your mouth. Under the influence of organic acids, tooth enamel softens and is more easily destroyed by the action of a brush and paste.

Vegetable juices, for example, beetroot, it is better to mix with others. First, so you add brightness to the taste, because vegetable juices are more neutral than fruit juices. 

Second, dilute the too high concentration. In particular, beet juice should first be allowed to settle for an hour or two, and then mixed with apple, carrot or cabbage juices.

Some juices have medicinal properties. These include, for example, beet juice and chokeberry juice. They promote the expansion of blood vessels and lower blood pressure. Therefore, you need to use them very if you suffer from low blood pressure. 

It should be noted that the juice of chokeberry can cause constipation. Therefore, before choosing a juice to correct any health problems, it is better to consult a doctor.

Children's juices are more useful than those that are intended only for adults. This is true in the sense that stricter requirements are imposed on the production of juices. It is not a fact at all that mixture of juices contains more vitamins. 

There is another nuance here. Strict quality and safety indicators are set for mono juices (from one fruit or vegetable). 

There are no vitamins in packaged juice. If it is juice of direct pressing, and not recovered from the concentrate, and the manufacturer has not violated the production technology (pasteurized at a temperature of no higher than 80-90 degrees for a short time - less than a minute, to exclude the development of harmful microflora), then the biologically active substances and vitamins will remain in juice. In addition, some manufacturers specifically add vitamin C to the juice.

It is better to buy juices than nectars. Juice nectar contains a maximum of 50of juice. However, there are fruits, from which 100% juice can not be made (for example, bananas, peaches, apricots), or this juice will be too concentrated and sour (for example, cherry juice). Therefore, cherries are usually made with nectar, where the content of cherry juice is 35-45% and it is mixed with sugar, apple juice or water.

It may sound strange, but it is quite possible to make a meat dish vegetarian. Of course, it will contain no meat at all, but its nutritional balance will be just the same. The vegetarian dish that can fully substitute meat is called “seitan”.
Seitan is a nutritious, high-calorie, protein-rich product, called "wheat meat" by some people, or simply "gluten." This is one of the best 100% vegan meat substitutes. From it, you can cook a variety of dishes, similar in taste to beef, pork, or chicken, etc. Seitane "meat" can be made soft - as if baked in a pot, or hard - like a chop. If you've ever tried a vegan dish from "beef" or even "chicken" in a Chinese restaurant, then you've tried the seitan.

In some specialized vegan shops, as well as in large supermarkets, you can find and buy ready-to-eat dishes from seitan, but making a seitan at home is cheaper and much more interesting, and - with some experience - palatable.

Some people "extract" seitan out of wheat flour: it needs to be washed to remove starch and leave pure gluten. However, of course, it's much quicker and easier to buy a dried seitan.

The preparation of a seitan from a semi-finished product leaves you a large space for imagination - cooking it is not so "straightforward" as one might think, as it's not a rice! You can cook a variety of dishes, but here you need some skills. Having gained a little experience, you will be able to cook the most delicious vegan "meat" dishes. Let’s proceed!

1. Ingredients

Theoretically, you can eat seitan having unpacked it and boiled. However, who wants to get a plate of unattractive food of grey color? Therefore, other products, such as pea or chickpea flour, are often added to the seitan, as they make it softer. 

Softness can be achieved by mixing some food yeast into the seitan - which, in addition, enrich the dish with vitamins. Among the liquid products that can be added to the seitan are: vegetable broth, olive oil, tamari sauce, soy sauce or liquid amino acids. 

Solid foods include another flour and spices. Having mixed the shredded seitan, solid and liquid ingredients together, we get a "dough" - here we are halfway to the perfect food on your plate! It is clear that if you want to cook something like vegan "mutton ribs", then the dough should be kneaded more. The variety of the recipes is amazing, just try them!

2. Spices outside, spices inside

As well as meat, imitated by seitan, it must be flavored with spices. However, seitan even wins in this sense, because it is a more convenient product, as spices can be added to it both "outside" and "inside"!

For example, if you want to give the future "meat" a special taste “like a chop”, try to add a little tomato paste in the mixing step of the dough.

If you suddenly missed the taste of a real chop - it's worth pouring a little cumin, coriander, oregano and paprika into the seitan - they are traditionally used in cooking steaks and will add credence to your tasty dish.

Moreover, if you want a seitan "chicken", "pork" or something more neutral to taste - use ready-made vegan flavoring, sauces or broths. Alternatively, it is even easier and more affordable to add thyme and sage.

After the soybean dough is ready you can also add spices. How to cook it? The easiest way is to put out a little oil in a frying pan - it will turn out to be a crust. Slices of seitan can first be fried in flour with spices, and then boiled in a soup.

Seitan in small pieces is better to be seasoned with garlic powder, salt from celery, black or cayenne pepper. In seitan "ribs" and "steaks" it is good to rub a mixture of spices 15 minutes before frying. 

For example make a mixture:
  • 2 tablespoons of dry mustard powder,
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic powder,
  • 1 tablespoon of ground black pepper,
  • 2 tablespoons of powder of smoked paprika,
  • 2 tablespoons of salt,
  • 1 tablespoon of crushed dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper (you will get 1/3 cup of a mixture of spices, which will be enough for a long time).

3. Learn how to knead a seitan dough

Seitan dough, just like any dough, must first be mix with water and knead. The more you knead the soybean dough, the more elastic will be the final product! If you want to get a soft seitan - knead it a bit. The most part of the recipes with the seitan recommends mixing the seitanic flour with water and kneading for 3 minutes. Then you have to let it stand for about 10 minutes, and then to knead for another 3 minutes. When you mix the seitan, you will feel how its consistency changes, the liquid flour becomes more elastic - it forms gluten. If the dough can be stretched, and then it immediately shrinks back - this is the desired elasticity, and the final product will be similar to meat.

4. Stewed seitan

The most common method of cooking seitan is to put it on low heat. Therefore, it turns out soft. However, it's not so easy.

It is important to stew seitan on the slow fire, otherwise - if water boils and boils - you can get a "rubber sponge".

5. Baked seitan

Many people like to bake seitan - yes, it really can be very tasty! This, in fact, is also the simplest method - no foil, no steamer, no pans with broth are necessary! In addition, this dish does not need to stand until tomorrow, it's tasty at once. Particularly suitable this method of preparation is, if you decide to make "ribs" or something stronger than stewed seitan, which usually turns out soft.

Oil the frying pan and lay out the dough and let it stand it as mentioned above. You can stretch or grind seitan "cutlets" in a pan as you like, and, if necessary, cut into smaller pieces. Then put a mixture of spices on top, and bake for an hour or so - the seitan should bake to hardness. Take the baking sheet out onto the stove. When sticking again, cut the "sausages" and put the finished product on a dish. Then you can add sauce and finally eat it! Alternatively, bring it to perfection in the framework of another, an additional recipe.

The good news is that although the preparation of a seitan requires some time and skill, the end result can be much better than a ready-made dish from the store! In addition, there is nothing to limit your creative culinary fantasy.

As you see, you can make a meat dish vegetarian and vice versa. All you have to do is to find the recipe to your taste and cook it consequently.
