Honey Diet – A Sweeter Alternative


“To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.” ~William Londen In times you all have gone through that phase when you have that special event or party where you want to step in with that perfect dress which will flaunt or perfect shape and looks. But when you see yourself in the mirror you find that somewhere down the lane while we are busy taking care of other important things of life, few parts of your body secretly gain fat which are unnoticed until a certain time. Now you are tempted to shed all the extra pound in before that particular event where you are dying to look good and in shape. We fall a prey of crash diet over a healthy diet plan. For decades , people well know the fact that a body desired is the body achieved in times. Crash diets may have negative impact on our overall health. Crash Diets can slow your metabolism, leading to future weight gain, and deprive your body of essential nutrients. What's more, crash diets can weaken your immune system and increase your risk of dehydration, heart palpitations, and cardiac stress. Where as healthy eating means your are not strict with your dietary limitation, staying unrealistically thin or skipping the food you love. It’s about staying cheerful in your choice , be more energetic , improving your outlook and have a stabilized mood. The basic tips for healthy diet plan are :
1. Drink plenty of water it will flash the toxins and waste product out of your body.
2. Replacing unhealthy alternative with healthy ones such as replacing animal fat with vegetable fat like adding olive oil rather than butter. Instead of sugar use honey.
3. Try to add more colors to your food with colorful and fresh vegetables. The more healthy food you will choose the more healthy you will feel after each meal. The more junk food you will eat , the more likely you will feel uncomfortable , nauseous you will feel drained energy.
For me honey plays a very important role to stay fit and young. Honey Diet is my take when it’s comes to choose healthy diet plan in my daily regime.
 There are various health benefits of honey.
1.Weight management: A Spoon of honey taken with warm water in the morning is traditionally known to be useful in weight management.
2.Sugar substitute:Honey is a healthier substitute to sugar when looking to reduce weight as it has lesser calories than sugar and contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which are good for health. 3.Source of energy:Honey is known to be a good source of energy as it’s natural sugar and carbohydrates are easily digested by the body.
 4.Aids Digestion:Honey when used in your diet is known to aid in digestion.
5.Cough and cold:Honey is known to help in cough and throat irritation.
 6.Beautiful Skin:Honey is known to be useful for the skin because of its moisturizing and nourishing properties.

Fish Ball With Onion Pepper Sauce


Fish Ball with onion pepper sauce is a very delectable dish. You can have it with steamed rice or vegetable rice or simple noodles. Simple and easy to cook take less than few minutes but fish ball in onion pepper sauce is really an awesome dish.Fish has a reputation for being low calorie, high protein “brain food,” thanks to the long strands of polyunsaturated essential omega-3 fatty acids (popularly referred to as “omega-3s”) found in fish oil. The human body can’t naturally produce omega-3s, but yet they’re needed for a healthy body, inside and out. Eating fish as little as once a week can help preserve gray-matter neurons.One of the biggest drawbacks to a low-fat diet is you often deprive your skin and hair of the healthy fat it needs, leaving it dull and dry. The omega-3s in fish are exactly the type of healthy fat to eat to keep your skin looking nourished and your hair shiny.Saltwater fish is a sun-less source of vitamin D, which scientists say can help ward off disease, promote bone health, and with the help of the omega-3s in fish, ward off cognitive decline. A recent study of 188 men found that those who ate more fresh fish — along with other healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains — had stronger swimmers than those who ate unhealthy diets. Researchers say that more study needs to be done, but preliminary data shows that the better the participant’s diet, the stronger the shape and mobility of the sperm he produced.
I am sure all this health benefits will add on as a good reason to try this delicious fish ball with onion pepper sauce.
