Read an exclusive preview of Men's Health's new book, Eat This, Not That! - the no-diet weight-loss solution.
Although not yet common in British kitchens, quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) boasts more nutrients than any other grain. It has more fibre and nearly twice as much protein as brown rice, and the proteins it has consist of a near-perfect blend of amino acids, so that your body can easily break them down and turn them into muscle. And get this: All that protein and fibre—in conjunction with a handful of healthy fats and a comparatively small dose of carbohydrates—help ensure a low impact on your blood sugar. That’s great news for prediabetics and anyone watching their weight. So what’s the trade-off? There is none. Quinoa’s soft and nutty taste is easy to handle even for picky eaters, and it cooks just like rice, ready in about 15 minutes.Substitutes: Oats, amaranth, millet, pearl barley, bulgur wheatRecipe idea: Forget rice; make quinoa your go-to starchy staple. Toss boiled grains with wilted spinach leaves, dried cranberries, goat’s cheese, lemon juice, and olive oil. Use in quinoa for risottos and pilafs; or mix hot quinoa with a bit of milk, cinnamon, and sliced banana for a great breakfast alternative.
"those who had been drinking five or more cups of tea per day were 26 percent less likely to die of any cause"
There was a letter in the Lancet recently about this sort of statement.
haha! took me several minutes to realise what was wrong with that statement !
well pointed out
I also thought that you could only drink tea, not eat it, so the title "10 foods you should eat every day" is a bit of a misnomer.
Good to know that I am now varying percent less likely to die of any cause depending on my intake of food and amount of daily exercise.
Imagine being immortal though. At what point would it dawn on your that that would be the worst possible fate imaginable? Or would you learn through eons of time to live with it? I suppose you wouldn't have any choice.
Kryten wrote (see)
Being immortal would be fine so long as you had a really bad memory.
Perhaps that's the way things actually are. We're not going to know any different are we? The Big Bang wasn't the start of everything, just a time when lots of shit was going down. That's what I reckon. Read Spinoza.
