Many health conscious one raised their eyebrows when cheese dishes are presented but do you know that because cheese is a calcium-rich food, it may help reduce the risk for osteoporosis—a disease in which bones become fragile and are more likely to break.In addition, cheese is included in the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet designed to reduce the risk of high blood pressure.Cheese contains important nutrients like calcium, protein, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin B12. Did you know that it takes about ten pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese? This makes cheese a concentrated source of many of milk's nutrients, such as calcium, which is critical for building strong bones. If you are lactose intolerant, many cheeses, particularly aged cheeses such as Cheddar and Parmesan, contain little or no lactose and are often well tolerated. Serotonin is a chemical messenger that’s believed to act as a mood stabilizer. It’s said to help produce healthy sleeping patterns as well as boost your mood.Serotonin is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan. Many foods contain tryptophan, so the common belief is that by eating foods high in tryptophan, you can boost your serotonin levels.Cheese is another great source of tryptophan. From Cheddar to Gruy√®re—enjoy trying new types of cheeses with your favorite foods to make nutritious, tasty dishes.Keeping your favorite cheeses on hand can take your meals to a whole new level!

Cheese Peas

Happy Republic Day to all my Indian friends. Today sharing a very easy colorful delicious recipe which will take just 2 minutes to prepare but you will get a easy, fast to cook, scrumptious dish to enjoy in chilling winter days.We don't usually think about green peas as an exotic food in terms of nutrient composition—but we should. Because of their sweet taste and starchy texture, we know that green peas must contain some sugar and starch (and they do). But they also contain a unique assortment of health-protective phytonutrients. The unique phytonutrients in green peas also provide us with key antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Included in these phytonutrients are some recently-discovered green pea phytonutrients called saponins. Due to their almost exclusive appearance in peas, these phytonutrients actually contain the scientific word for peas (Pisum) in their names: pisumsaponins I and II, and pisomosides A and B. When coupled with other phytonutrients in green peas—including phenolic acids like ferulic and caffeic acid, and flavanols like catechin and epicatechin—the combined impact on our health may be far-reaching. For example, some researchers have now speculated that the association between green pea and legume intake and lowered risk of type 2 diabetes may be connected not only with the relatively low glycemic index of green peas (about 45-50) and their strong fiber and protein content, but also with this unusual combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.Even though green peas are an extremely low-fat food (with approximately one-third gram of total fat per cup) the type of fat and fat-soluble nutrients they contain is impressive. Recent research has shown that green peas are a reliable source of omega-3 fats in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). In one cup of green peas, you can expect to find about 30 milligrams of ALA. About 130 milligrams of the essential omega-6 fatty acid, linoleic acid, can also be found in a cup of green peas. This very small but high-quality fat content of green peas helps provide us with important fat-soluble nutrients from this legume, including sizable amounts of beta-carotene and small but valuable amounts of vitamin E.So what are you waiting take a healthy bite with this super delicious Cheese Peas.

Creamy Pasta With Roasted Pumpkin Topping

All my friends who read my blog know that I am an avid pasta lover. Today I will share with you all a very delicious creamy pasta with roasted pumpkin topping. This dish is a blend of creamy sweetness. It may seem a little heavy as cheese and cream and milk all are added but I also use pumpkin which is an extremely nutrient dense food, meaning it is chock-full of vitamins and minerals but low on calories.
Pumpkin is one of the best-known sources of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant known to give orange vegetables and fruits their vibrant color and which is converted to vitamin A in the body. Consuming foods rich in beta-carotene may reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer, offer protection against asthma and heart disease, and delay aging and body degeneration.Eating pumpkin is good for the heart! The fiber, potassium and vitamin C content in pumpkin all support heart health. Consuming adequate potassium is almost as important as decreasing sodium intake for treatment of hypertension (high-blood pressure). Other foods that are high in potassium include cantaloupe, pineapple, tomatoes, oranges, spinach and bananas.
Increased potassium intakes are also associated with a reduced risk of stroke, protection against loss of muscle mass, preservation of bone mineral density and reduction in the formation of kidney stones.
For women of child-bearing age, consuming more iron from plant sources such as spinach, beans, pumpkin, tomatoes, and beets appear to promote fertility, according Harvard Medical School's Harvard Health Publications. The vitamin A in pumpkin (consumed as beta-carotene then converted to vitamin A in the body) is also essential during pregnancy and lactation for hormone synthesis.
Plant foods like pumpkins that are high in both vitamin C and beta-carotene offer an immunity boost from their powerful combination of nutrients.
Creamy pasta with roasted pumpkin topping is not only a delicious dish but loaded with health benefit. So what are you waiting for give it a try and enjoy a delicious fall recipe.
