A well balanced and healthy vegetarian diet provides almost all the nutrients and minerals you will need as vegetables are a very good source of almost all the important nutrients and minerals required by the human body. Vegetarians should be well-aware of how to get the maximum energy from their vegetarian diets. Below you will find tips to get the best nutrition out of your vegetables.
Vegetarian Diet

  • Vegetarians should be very conscious if they are taking the proper amount of proteins in their diet or not. Proteins are one of the most essential nutrients needed by the body. Certain green leafy vegetables and legumes are better sources of proteins than the others, so these vegetables should be added in any vegetarian diet and taken in more quantity. Examples of these protein rich foods are lentils, pulses, beans, chickpeas, brown rice and nuts.
  • Like proteins, iron is also an equally important mineral needed by the human body. Vegetables can provide sufficient quantity of iron as well. Iron helps in the proper functioning of liver, pancreas and also keeps hair, nails and skin, strong and healthy. Vegetables that are very rich in iron are spinach, cabbage, celery, soy, and tofu. However, coffee or tea should be taken at least 3 hours before meals, as it decreases the absorption of iron. Citrus fruits and berries also hinder its absorption as they contain vitamin C.
  • Calcium is equally important for kids, old people and young adults. Calcium makes bones and teeth strong and healthy. It also makes the skin look younger and fresher. Vegetables and fruits which are rich in calcium are sesame seeds, fortified orange juice, almonds, cabbage, tomatoes, spinach, carrots and broccoli. Milks of certain vegetarian foods are also very healthy and good. These include rice milk and soy milk. Soups of many vegetables like cabbage can be a good source of calcium as well.
  • Vitamins, especially Vitamin B12 is easily available in various vegan foods like seaweeds, corals and nutritional yeast. But vegetarians should take vitamin supplements as well to get the right quantity of essential vitamins. These supplements should not be taken everyday as taking them once a week can fulfil the requirement.

Vegetarian diets protect the human body from several health related risks. They help to reduce cholesterol, excess lipids and extra fats from the body. Vegetables also have antioxidant properties, so they help to remove toxic materials from the body. A vegetarian diet prevents cancers of colon, prostate, breast and rectal area. Smokers should take extra vegetables in their diet than non-smokers, because many nutrients work slower in smokers’ bodies. So, smoking should be quitted in the first place and apart from that, more vegetables and grains should be added in the diet.

Whether you are planning something for a holiday trip or a holiday party, healthy food should be preferred to make those times of joy, happy and healthy for you and your family. These are especially the times when good quality food should be consumed. The choice of food selection depends on the cook who is preparing snacks and meals for the family members. Following are some health tips which you should keep in mind when preparing holiday meals and their nutrient values.

Healthy Holiday Meal

  1. Guests should always be offered healthy food containing all the essential nutrients. Healthy food is one which has less fat contents, more protein contents as well as vitamins and minerals. Among fats, animal derived fats should be used in smaller amount. However vegetable based fats can be used comfortably without the fear of any harmful effects.
  2. Holiday meals do not mean eating a lot of oily food and fried stuff. This is the common concept among many people. They consider holiday meals, the times when maximum fried stuff, carbonated beverages and oily snacks can be consumed. This is a very wrong concept. Instead of fried fish, oily roasted food and potato chips, healthy additions can be made. These include fruit salads, boiled beans and whole grain crackers. Many good cooking utensils are also available in the market, which help in oil free preparation of meals. They help in preparing food with little or no oil at all.
  3. Frozen food is normally used by people during holiday parties as it saves time and can serve more people. However, frozen food is not the healthiest food to offer your guests and family. Frozen and packed food should be avoided as much as possible. One reason is that it contains high caloric values and fats. The other reason is that fresh foods provide nutrients in their best form that frozen goods can never give. In fact frozen foods lose their natural nutrients to a greater extent when compared with freshly prepared food.
  4. Sauces, pastes and dips should not be taken in the packed or tinned form. Although home made sauces take some time to prepare, their health value and nutrition is far better than market products. So, ketchup, sauces, dips and pastes made at home are healthy and nutritious.
  5. Vegetables should be added to holiday meals as much as possible. Lots of salads should be served with the food. Grilled and barbecued vegetables can add delicacy to the food.
  6. Fresh fruits and homemade fruit juices are a delicious and nutritious addition to holiday meals. They are especially good for kids as well as for old people. They provide them with energy and health, along with a number of vitamins, nutrients and minerals.
  7. Snacks and crackers are an important part of holiday mealtimes. Instead of serving roasted oily meat and fried chips, healthy snacks should be given to guests and family. These are fresh cream salads, whole grain crackers and roasted nuts.

The above tips can help to make holiday meals healthy and nutritious for your friends and family. Use them to make family time enjoyable on the holiday season.

Say citrus! There’s a sparkle to the word. The tongue tingles in anticipation of the first rush of juice, of the tarty fizz and its slow honeyed aftermath.

Citrus Fruit Juices

Colours like lemon yellow, lime green and tangerine and the whole tonal scale of orange (from blood red to dull ochre) make up for the spectrum of the citrus. Citrus fruits provide you with the life saving and body repairing micro nutrient, vitamin C and hence are a dietary constituent included in most diet plans. Vitamin C is the nerve vitamin, one that keeps you going despite the germs, virus and the pollution. It is the healing vitamin and helps the body in building new tissue, thus helping in body repair when injured.

Oranges

When oranges are not squeezed for juice they are eaten by the dozens, especially in the season. But again some people don’t flirt with the orange much in their kitchens, except for using the zest to flavour desserts. Oranges pack vitamin C enough to rewrite the adage to “An orange a day keeps the doctor away”. All you got to do is add an orange to your breakfast, and start the day pepped up with vitamin C. You can also include any other citrus fruit juices like orange juice or grapefruit juice in your diet by taking them anytime during the day. Remember, that fresh fruit juices are the healthiest as they are natural and without any preservatives.

Oranges are seasonal treats and though they are very popular as a dessert fruit, they are increasingly becoming a part of our daily diets. Most oranges have a very short life approximately two weeks. They tend to shrivel up and become dull brown as they spoil. Wrapping different fruits in tissue paper helps in preservation.

Lemons

There’s hardly a household nowadays that sees the day through without the squeeze of a lemon. The lemon is most susceptible to frost than any other citrus fruit. Sweet lime is mildly sweet and has practically no acidic content. The aroma of citrus fruits comes from the oils present in the rind. Lemon and orange zest is liberally used as flavouring agents in various recipes and are also used in a variety of pickles. Many methods of pickling are aimed at preserving vitamin C, that can be destroyed whenever lemon is steamed, boiled or sautéed. A good bit is also lost when the cut surface is exposed to air.

Lemons can be preserved by putting them in airtight jars with heavy porcelain crocks and stone containers.

Grapefruits

A grapefruit is rich in ascorbic acid and thiamine and has a bitter taste but one cannot ignore the vast amount of vitamin C it contains. Grapefruit juice is included in most diet plans as drinking its juice (without sugar) first thing in the morning helps in fat reduction. As for its preservation it is best to use this fruit as soon as possible. If it is exposed to air for sometime the peel might become brown in colour and might lose its original flavour. If cut, it is advisable to use within 10-15mins as chances are that it will soon go stale.

Remember fruits are rich in vitamins but if exposed to air, can rapidly lose their vitamin content. Stale or cut vegetables have low vitamin C content. Many fruits and vegetables contain an enzyme called the ascorbic acid oxidase that destroys vitamin C. Therefore, to preserve the vitamin C content while cooking vegetables, it is advisable to bring them quickly to a high temperature in a short time in order to destroy this enzyme.

Foods prepared at home are much safer and healthier than those cooked in restaurants, motels, hotels or elsewhere. There are many health benefits of homemade meals and snacks.

Homemade Meal

  1. The first and most important reason why homemade meals are good for health is that homemade meals are neat and clean. They provide the best level of hygiene that is possible. Your home provides a neat and tidy cooking environment. So, food cooked at home is healthier, cleaner and safer. Those who eat food cooked at home get a more pure form of food than restaurants or hotels. Also, since you will be in control of cooking at home, you will know exactly how you prepare your food.

    When eating in restaurants, you can never be sure of the hygienic conditions. Many workers of restaurants do not wash the vegetables properly and this makes them unhealthy.

  2. The second benefit of homemade meals is that eating out wastes money on food which is neither as good as a homemade meal, nor as healthy. Whenever you go to restaurants and motels for lunches, you pay twice as much as you would have spent on homemade dishes.
  3. Vegetables, fruits, grains, herbs and spices used in homemade meals are properly and thoroughly washed, cleaned, dried and cut. Hence, you get fresh and healthy food. Proper washing of uncooked stuff is very important and you can easily do that yourself in the neat environment of your home kitchen. Unhygienic food can be a major source of food poisoning, cholera and dysentery especially in kids.

    When food is properly cleaned and cut before cooking, all the essential nutrients and vitamins of the food are preserved. This entraps all the essential vitamins and minerals in the food.

  4. Working people should always prefer taking home made sandwiches and snacks for lunch rather then dining out daily. This will not only provide them with healthy food, but will also save the wastage of their money. It will also ensure good health and you will be sure about the quality of food.
  5. Although juice packs and fizzy drinks are commonly used these days, but they can never be compared with fresh homemade juices. Juices made at home are very healthy and should be taken especially with breakfast. Fresh homemade juices can also be taken to the work place apart from drinking carbonated beverages. Fizzy drinks and carbonated beverages are very harmful for bones and teeth as they demineralise the bony structure gradually. This makes bones weak and prone to easy fractures.
  6. The cooks at restaurants use the same oil for frying again and again. This oil is used the whole day, which spoils the health contents of fried food. At home you are sure of the quality and neatness of the cooking oil.

    Many restaurants also use oil containing trans-fats. These fats can cause many diseases of the heart and colon. They can also lead to high cholesterol levels, high fat in blood and hypertension.

Apart from these, home made meals are more nutritious, and are also low in fats. Most of the food you eat at restaurants is high in calories and has lots of unhealthy fats which can be harmful for the body and lead to problems like heart disease and obesity. People who dine out regularly are more prone to problems like weight gain and high blood pressure. Therefore, you should avoid dining out often and also avoid fast foods as they are unhealthy and lack in nutrients. Cooking at home can also be used as a great way to spend quality time with your kids and family. So make sure you cook and eat homemade meals and dine out less so you can stay healthy and fit.
