Recipes

Healthy Recipes

Studies show that some of the most mouth-watering and exotic dishes are the worst for man. Recipes meant to entice the taste buds are often low in proteins and fiber and high in carbohydrates. Regular consumption of this type of food can lead to serious health hazards like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, hypoglycemia and type 2 diabetes. High cholesterol can further lead to other serious conditions like heart disease and osteoporosis. Switching to healthy recipes will help you shed those extra pounds and improve your overall health.

For many people going on a diet means having to deprive themselves from food they love to eat. Following healthier recipes gives you a low-calorie and low-carbohydrate diet that can help you have your fill without worrying about obesity and health problems. Recipes involving a low-carbohydrate diet use low-carb alternatives as essential ingredients, tasting similar to the high-carb foods you are not allowed to eat. So you can eat healthier food including meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, and green vegetables like asparagus, spinach, and broccoli until you are full, without worrying about your calorie intake.

People who follow the healthy recipes feel both physically and mentally fit. Small dietary changes can definitely lead to big results. Health practitioners relate that even with various breakthroughs in medicine, the best way to reduce the threat of the diseases is to reduce the likelihood of their occurring altogether. An easier and more practical way to reach this goal is to follow a healthy eating pattern, including healthy recipes in your daily life.

What Food Cause Your Uti And How To Treat Urinary Tract Infection

Most urinary tract infections are caused by bacteria entering the urethra from outside. Of all cases, somewhere around 70% is caused by the bacterium E-coli (Escherichia coliform). E-coli actually lives quite naturally in the bowel and is mostly harmless. However when it gets into the bladder it will breed rapidly and start causing symptoms within hours. Bacterium will usually enter the bladder through the urethra due to cross contamination from the bowel, though can make its way through the digestion system, if contaminated food is consumed.

Ways in how to treat urinary tract infection are not too hard to find, with antibiotics proving effective in all but the most extreme of cases. However, it is advisable to stay away from all triggers, particularly if genetically prone to such infections. Most foods are perfectly safe to consume if you are at a high risk or have suffered from the problem before., though there are a few that can trigger bacterial activity and certainly will aggravate a current infection.

Tea and coffee should at the very least be kept to a minimum, and possibly cut out of your regular diet altogether. Caffeine in the drinks will concentrate the acidity of your urine, which will help bacteria to develop, and cause for greater intensity of pain when you pass water. As an alternative, try drinking herbal teas. Not only will they not cause or aggravate infections, infusions such as Green tea could possess active ingredients that will be beneficial to the health of the urinary system.
Carbonated drinks are also an irritant. Often containing high levels of caffeine themselves, the high sugar or artificial sweetener content will have a negative effect
