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.

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.
