This is recipe Blog Carnival Edition
There was a day of delay from the schedule, sorry folks.
So, today we have the Recipe Blog Carnival.
This edition was supposed to be dedicated to healthy food. However, the healthy diet is always known: More vitamins, more vegetables and fruits, more fiber, less animal fat, more plant oil, and watch your calories. Yet it is not always the tastiest food.
Today we will look for different recipes, and frankly say who am I to judge how healthy they are? Moderate, balanced amount of any food should not really hurt your health much. And also how would I calculate how many calories are offered in the every dish presented.
So let’s look what do they submitted today: Dr. Joel Fuhrman M.D. (www.diseaseproof.com ) presents recipes Eat to Live Italian. Well sounds tasty. Though lot of pasta is not the thing that decreases your calories, still, from the other hand, Mediterranean diet brings a lot of sea foods (rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protecting heart) as well as fresh vegetables and olive oil. That’ should be definitely helpful. Also I remember reading somewhere (semi-scientifically sort of) that, for example, pizza (it’s Italian food, Right?) has a ratio of ingredients that protects you from prostate cancer. Sort of that lycopene from tomatoes have antioxidant qualities and beta carotene from the same tomato also is precursor of vitamin A, helpful in reducing cancer risk. And that cheese itself contains something (I think the talk was about he ingredients -like tyramine and soon that are converted by MAO - monoamine oxidase and that sort of preventing from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia ). Tyramine amino acid displaces norepinephrine from sympathetic nerve ending and epinephrine from the adrenal glands. You can even read Pizza consumption and the risk of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer at Eur J Cancer Prev. 2006 Feb;15(1):74-6. Actually, folks I do not remember the discussion exactly, maybe all was just in opposite way. However, let’s not to put our food into the lab tube but taste according to our good Dr. Fuhrman from Gekko Blogs LLC at Flemington NJ at www.diseaseproof.com . He describes: Zucchini & Mushrooms, Scallion-Eggplant Dip, Portobella Mushrooms and Beans

Adam presents Toasted Pumkins Seeds posted at Men in Aprons. Pumpkin seeds were the things I always liked myself when was a child. Also pumpkin seeds (Cucurbitaceae) are good for expelling helminths (worms) form your guts. They, or some extracts form them, are used to paralyze or somehow else make the worms uncomfortable. Researchers found stuff named Cucurbitin that sits in pumpkin seeds. That’s probably responsible for the worm-expelling effects. However, folks, let’s forget about worms and just enjoy the meal. The seeds are so tasty when cracked in your mouth by your teeth.
Joe Donnachie presents Power Porridge posted at joedonnachie.com Pursuing Health and Happiness. As you guessed it is directly relates to your Health. I didn’t know about Power Porridge.
