Healthy Food

Postby jane001 » Tue Jul 21, 2009 6:59 pm

What comes to your mind when you think about healthy food? Some say you can never go wrong with fresh fruit and vegetables, others say that meat and seafood are also good for us.

Theoretically we all know what is healthy, but on a practical level we also like food that tastes good to satisfy our taste buds.

In this programme Yang Li interviews six people with different lifestyles on their views of healthy food.

What could be more healthy than growing your own vegetables in the garden?

I have noticed lots of food in the UK marked with "low fat" and I want to know what do british people think about healthy food?

Stir frying is definitely healthy if you don't use too much oil! I tend to like to use a non-stick wok and add very little oil! However, the traditional wok heats up easily - cooks quicker! Dweh use olive oil but I told him that it is just not the same! Needs either Corn oil or Peanut oil.

Here in UK, I eat plenty of salads! Low fat mayo/salad cream to make it tasty! Grilling, steaming is a great way of cooking healthy food. I do occasionaly long for Fish & Chips! I don't know why, food that has been deep fried just tastes so much more yummilicious!

Wish we had a bigger garden so I can grow some organic vegetables!

i feel healthy food is an integral of food combination and not individual elements. Its good to have a diet supplemented with chiili, garlic, corriander, chives, ginger, spring onion, pepper, and herbs like sage, mint, basil. Some foods enhances when they combine, and some foods are good but not to be taken too often. Everything in excess leads to breakdown of balance, and healthy food is a link with constant exercise non-vigourous, that maintains the metabolism of the nutrients that we absorbed. There are very little original food nowadays as most have been genetically modified for commercial substainance. In general, i feel healthy food is also the technique employed in fabricating the raw materials to the product on our table. Raw foods can be very good, if the stomach can withstand. Some people likes to eat sashimi, semi-cooked beef, raw vegetables. The best way to retain the quality of food, is to cook at the correct temperature. Overeating is a form of unhealthy food. Moderation with a relaxing mind, is a catalyst of healthy food.

Hi,
Health is considered as an essential and integral part of our of our life.It is a sheer Gift from GOD.
when we are healthy and fine we do not need anything in life.Health is a real treasure and pleasure for us.For getting healthy and fine for a lifetime we should and must get foods that keep us all time healthy and smiling.Fresh Vegetables and fruits are main sources for good health.Meat and fish are also necessary for our body.we should take food in a standard quality and quantity.Junk foods are always avoided they do not give us anything they are just for taste.We have to get nutrition and power along with taste.

Thanks..
Rita Frank

A well spread of all foodstuffs is always the right thing to do.
Any over-indulgence in any general food group (meat, fat or starch) or any particular food preparation type(deep fried, fried) not only limited the choices of foods available but is also not a well-balanced spread and bad for health. :D

Hello,
Eating is one the most important events in everyone’s life. We enjoy eating - it’s part of who we are and part of our culture; in fact, eating is the hottest universal topic of all times. We depend on eating: the foods we eat are the sole source of our energy and nutrition. We know so much about eating.A healthy food involves appropriate amounts of all nutrients, and an adequate amount of water. Nutrients can be obtained from many different foods, so there are a wide variety of diets that may be considered healthy diets.

Cook some chicken then 'burn it' a bit in a frying pan, warm a pitta in the micro pop the chicken in add lettuce, onions and a spoon of low fat mayo mixed with a little mint sauce and crushed chilli. High protein low fat - works out around 500 cal. Lovely

Making healthy food choices isn't easy, especially when so much misinformation abounds. Food manufacturers market and label their products in ways that are sometimes deceptive, while fad diet promoters deliberately play upon popular misconceptions about what is and isn't healthy.
