Healthy Eating for Students

 

With late-night pizza delivery and food from buggies, dining at college is a whole new ballgame for students. Even though some of these quick and easy meals taste delicious, they are probably not so good for a student's health.

Students' eating choices can have an impact on their ability to stay awake in class and whether or not they contract mononucleosis when it arrives on campus. The issue isn't only about eating junk food; it's also about individuals not receiving enough protein, carbs, vitamins, and minerals.

Vitamins and minerals are extremely vital in the fight against sickness. It's not necessary for students to go out and buy vitamins and supplements, just eating healthy food is the easiest and best source of nutrients for them.

Citrus fruits provide vitamin C, milk and dairy products include vitamin A, while Tiger Nuts have fiber, whole wheat goods, and even green leafy vegetables have vitamin E. This is the best approach to receive nutrients because your body need these vitamins for a variety of functions.

Skip the sodas and go straight to the juice machines when you're eating on campus. Examine the many meals on offer and visit the salad bar for some fresh vegetables. You may also use the microwave to steam broccoli and cauliflower for steamed vegetables. Healthy cereals and plenty of fresh fruit are always available in the dining halls.

Always keep in mind that eating healthily entails more than just avoiding fried meals. Eating healthily is maintaining a balanced diet and obtaining the necessary nutrients and vitamins to keep your body performing at its best - or at the very least awake throughout your classes.

Hope this helps and good luck with your studies!

Using Oils in the Kitchen!



Everyone is aware of the foods that are good for them, but how they are prepared might be just as important.

With so many oils and butters to choose from, it's easy to get overwhelmed.

With so many brands and varieties claiming to be the best, it can be quite difficult to understand which ones should be used and which should be avoided

1. Canola oil 

Canola oil is a preferred oil among doctors, claiming to be capable of lowering the risk of coronary heart disease The oil has a low saturated fat content.
It's strong in monounsaturated fat and one of the healthiest options as compared to other oils in terms of fatty acid makeup

Canola oil can be used for sautéing, marinating, and even low-temperature stir frying. It has a neutral flavor, which makes it ideal for recipes with a lot of spices. Unlike other oils, this one will not alter the flavor of your food.

2. Extra virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil has a distinct flavor and contains many heart-healthy ingredients. The oil is high in monounsaturated fat, which helps to cut cholesterol and lower cancer risk. It also contains a lot of antioxidants and has a long shelf life.

When you use it with cooking, you should heat it on low to medium temperatures, making sure to avoid high heat.

3. Butter

Butter is a traditional dish, has been around for a long time taste's delicious and offers sources of Vitamin A and other fat soluble vitamins such as
E, K, and even D.

Butter can be used in cooking, baking, and even as a spread. It also goes well with creamy sauces. Whether it's marinades, baked foods, or even bread, everyone "loves some butter on it".

4. Margarine 

Margarine was first developed as a substitute for butter, as butter has a high fat content However, when it was first developed it was high in trans fats, a chemical that we now know we should avoid, as it promotes bad cholesterol levels.

Margarine is a good cooking oil because it tastes delicious, has less fat than other oils and butter, and is easy to spread. It comes in a wide range of goods and is a rich source of vitamin E.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When it comes to cooking with oils, you have a variety of options. There are many more than those listed here, but the ones listed above are the most well-known. Cooking nutritious food is an important part of eating healthily, and here is where your cooking oil comes into play.

This then leads us to # 5 our Tiger Nuts Oil

Because it is derived from our Premium Organic Tiger Nuts with nothing added, utilizing a time-honored procedure that retains many of the unique benefits ascribed to the tiger nut, our First Cold Press Extra Virgin Olive Oil is widely considered a preferable healthier alternative to olive oil.


Our Tiger Nuts Oil has a clean, fresh flavor that is preferred above most other oils because it does not alter the flavor of the dish.

It helps build a barrier on the food's surface that minimizes the amount of fat absorbed when used in cooking. It also contains a high amount of oleic acid, which is a healthy form of vitamin E that helps to strengthen the immune system. You'll find it's also fantastic for salad dressings and dips, in addition to cooking!

Our Premium Organic Tiger Nuts Extra Virgin Oil is made from the first cold press of the Tiger Nuts.

SUITABLE FOR GLUTEN-FREE, NUT-FREE, NON-GMO, NON-ALLERGENIC
PERFECT FOR DIABETICS, CELIACS, VEGANS, AIP AND PALEO AS WELL!
