The 3 WORST Ways to Cook Your Vegetables (Plus the 3 Healthiest Ways)




By Dave From Paleohacks

Creator of the Paleohacks Cookbook

Did you know that HOW you cook your vegetables has a HUGE impact on
your health? If you cook veggies the wrong way, they lose a lot of the
nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. You end up "short changing"
yourself… just because of the way you prepare your food!
It's amazing how many people (and restaurants) are doing this.
You might be doing it right now. Some of the so-called "healthy" ways to
cook veggies are actually some of the worst ways you can prepare them.
There are a lot of MYTHS going around and it’s crucial to know how to cook
your vegetables to get the most health benefits.
Which ways should you AVOID?

The 3 Worst Ways to Cook Your Vegetables

1. Boiling

Boiling is, hands down, the WORST way to cook your vegetables.
Why?
You can only boil at very high temperatures and this takes longer than
cooking vegetables in other ways, leaving them exposed to vitamin and
mineral damage.
The biggest issue with boiling: you have to submerge the vegetables in
water.
After most people boil vegetables, they drain the water and toss it out without
a second thought…
But they don’t realize they’re “throwing out the baby with the bathwater” -- key
nutrients from vegetables they just prepared!
You can avoid this if you keep the boiled water and use it in a soup or
stew.

But if you just boil vegetables and pour the nutrient-rich water down the
sink, you’re missing out.
A combo of high heat and water loss make boiling a BAD choice compared
to the other ways on the next page.

2. Roasting

“Lot-fat” fanatics praise roasting as one of the healthiest ways to cook
vegetables because it uses dry heat and avoids oils.
You don’t have to add water like you do with boiling, which makes it easier
to save vegetables’ key minerals. That’s definitely a plus.
On the other hand, roasting is usually done at high heat for a good
amount of time. This causes some of the vitamins in vegetables to break
down.
So the verdict on roasting: it’s better than boiling vegetables, but it isn’t the
best way to save the most nutrients.

3. Microwaving

Microwaving vegetables exposes them to high heat for short periods of time.
This intense heat can make vegetable nutrients break down.
Plus, microwaves don’t just destroy nutrients. The heat can leach toxins
(like BPA) from microwavable containers into your food. Those toxins
have been linked to digestion and autoimmune issues—even cancer!
It’s also hard to cook with microwaves. A lot of vegetables come out mushy
or dry. There are hot and cold spots. No one wants to eat veggies if they taste
like cardboard.

Finally, there’s still A LOT we don’t know about how the radiation from
microwaves could harm the body over a lifetime of use…
Microwaving vegetables is convenient, but it isn’t a good way to go.
You have better options.

5 BEST Foods for Better, Glowing Skin

Did you know that the foods you eat don't just 
affect the way you feel? They also affect the way 
you LOOK. So if you're unhappy with your skin,
 your DIET (not just your age and lifestyle) could 
be to blame.
Some foods are great for you—inside and out…
So if you want healthy, radiant skin, eating more 
of them is one of the smartest things you can do!
But most people don't know that. They end up 
spending stacks of cash on beauty "products" 
and spreading artificial chemicals on themselves 
hoping to look better.
YOU deserve better than that.
What are the best foods you can eat for healthier
 skin?
Keep reading to find out...

1. Green Tea

Drinking a few cups of green tea a day isn’t just 
relaxing -- it’s one of the most important things 
you can do to look younger!
Tea leaves are full of antioxidants that protect 
your cells, fight inflammation, and keep out 
harmful toxins.
Green tea also has compounds called “catechins
” that increase the blood flow and oxygen to 
your skin. This makes it easier to get nutrients, 
which keeps your skin look amazing.
A 2011 study published in the journal Nutrition 
found that people who drank green tea every day
 for 12 weeks had smoother skin than people 
who didn’t. The green tea-drinkers even had less
 sun damage after they were exposed to UV light!
University of Alabama and Case Western Reserve
 University researchers also came to the 
conclusion that green tea might even reduce 
your risk of skin cancer.

2. Fish

One of the best ways to keep your skin healthy: 
avoid inflammation in your body. Reducing
 inflammation helps all kinds of skin issues, 
whether you’re battling a specific condition or 
just looking for a healthier glow.
Eating more fish helps you do just that!
Fish are full of omega-3 fatty acids. Most of us 
aren’t getting nearly enough of these. But they’re 
KEY to fighting inflammation.
Studies have found that adding omega-3s to your
 diet reduces puffiness and improves skin health.
 Bottom line: eat more fish, and get smoother, 
younger-looking skin.
You can find the most omega-3 fatty acids in 
cold-water fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel,
 tuna, and cod. Focus on those to get the most
 bang for your buck.

3. Berries

Don’t be fooled by their small size.Berries pack 
a serious skin-clearing punch!
They’re loaded with “antioxidants,” chemicals that
 flush toxins out of your body. A lot of foods have
 some antioxidants, but few have more than 
berries…
A study published in the Journal of Agricultural 
and Food Chemistryfound that blackberries, 
blueberries, and strawberries have the highest 
“total antioxidant capacity” of any food.
These antioxidants improve your skin by 
protecting it from aging, sun damage, and stress.

So eating berries means fewer wrinkles, dry 
skin, and creases in your forehead…
Nutritionist Samantha Heller says, “when you 
help protect the cells from damage and 
disintegration, you also guard against premature 
aging. In this respect, these fruits may very well 
help keep your skin looking younger longer.”

4. Nuts

Walnuts are great for your skin. According to 
Dr. David Bank, the omega-3 fatty acids inside 
them make your skin more elastic. Walnuts are 
the only type of nut that have a significant 
amount of omega-3s.
Walnuts are also high in “biotin,” a B vitamin that
 helps moisturize dry skin and overcome 
conditions like eczema.
Eating Brazil nuts is another great way to keep 
your skin looking its best…
Brazil nuts are loaded with selenium, a mineral 
that boosts your immune system and can reverse
 skin conditions like acne!
It takes just two Brazil nuts a day to get enough 
selenium. Toss those in with a handful of walnuts,
 and your skin will look better in no time.

3. Olive Oil

Olive oil gets rid of toxins from your body and fights inflammation (which can lead to all kinds of
 health problems).
That makes it good for your heart and brain… and also great for your skin.
When you eat olive oil, you take in a good dose 
of antioxidants and healthy fats, which leave your
 skin looking healthier and younger.
Olive oil gets rid of toxins from your body and 
fights inflammation (which can lead to all kinds 
of health problems).
Getting enough “good fats” is a key part of 
keeping your skin healthy. A Japanese study 
found that people who ate more saturated and 
monounsaturated fats had fewer wrinkles and 
more elastic skin than people who ate less.
A 2012 study in the Public Library of Science 
found that the more olive oil you eat, the fewer 
signs of aging skin.Olive oil beat every other type
 of oil the researchers tested!

"These 6 FRUITS Are Making You Fat"


lose weight
If you’re trying to lose weight, you’re probably worried about ice cream, pizza, and cake…
But fruit?
Isn’t that one of the BEST things you can eat to shed stubborn pounds?
Not so fast!
The cause of your endless weight-loss struggles might be right in front of you: the empty fruit bowl on your kitchen table…

Fruit Isn’t a “Free Pass”


The most dangerous paleo mistake people make?
Fruit is delicious, but it isn’t a “free pass” in your diet.
A lot of people treat it that way though. They’re strict about ditching unhealthy processed foods. But they let themselves eat as much fruit as they want.
Once someone decides to lose weight, sweets, sodas and processed foods are usually the first things to go…
But you still have to eat something. You have to replace some of those calories you eliminated from your diet.
Protein and healthy fats are ideal, but people struggle to get enough of them. So they end up snacking all the time, filling up on fruit to fight off hunger pains.
That’s when the problems start. A certain chemical in fruit can be DANGEROUS if you eat too much of it. Let’s talk about that now…

Fructose: What Makes Fruits Sweet (and Sometimes Dangerous)

“Fructose” is a natural sugar found in fruit.
It’s much better than high fructose corn syrup (the stuff found in processed foods). But fructose is still sugar. Eat too much, and you can get yourself into a world of trouble.
Why?
When you eat fruits, your body processes the fructose in them quickly. This spikes your blood sugar levels, and your body releases a hormone called insulin to get things under control.
Do this repeatedly, and your body adapts by becoming RESISTANT to insulin!
Things only go downhill from there. Insulin resistance has been linked to obesity—the last thing you want to hear if you’re trying to lose weight. It’s also been linked to diabetes, kidney disease, and even heart disease.
So the dangers of eating too much fructose are real. But don’t swear off eating fruit just yet…

Hold on. I Thought Fruits Were Healthy! What’s the Deal?

Fruits have plenty of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to write home about. As long as you aren’t eating too many of them, they fall under the “healthy” foods camp.
But not all fruits are created equal!
Some are sweeter than others. They have a high fructose content and a high “Glycemic index” (which measures food’s impact on your blood sugar).
Save the following sugary fruits for special occasions:
  • Bananas
  • Grapes
  • Mangos
  • Melons
  • Papayas
  • Pineapples
You can enjoy the following fruits more often because they're less sugary:
  • Apples
  • Apricots
  • Avocados
  • Berries
  • Citrus fruits
  • Cherries
  • Figs
  • Grapefruit
  • Peaches
  • Pears
And if you’re going to eat fruit, stick to whole fruit.
Eating whole fruit gives you get plenty of fiber with the fructose, which helps your body process the fructose more slowly. This is easier on your blood sugar and keeps you feeling full.
Fruit juices and smoothies taste delicious, but they’re super easy to overdo. Liquid calories don’t fill you up like whole foods do. You’re essentially drinking “fructose bombs”: entire batches of fruits thrown into a single glass.

How Much Fruit Can I Eat and Still Lose Weight?

Fruits have plenty of nutrients that make them healthy. But they also contain fructose, which can be dangerous if you eat too much of it…
But how much is “too much?”
It depends.
How active you are matters…
But how much is “too much?”
If you spend most of your time in an office and only exercise a little, you’ll probably see faster weight loss by limiting your fruit servings to 1-3 a day.
Athletes and physically active people can get away with eating more fruit: 4-5 servings a day is a good guideline. Physical activity helps you do well with more carbs (from fruits and starchy vegetables) in your diet.
You can always stop eating fruit until you reach your target weight. Then you can gradually reintroduce it into your diet. Until then, you can get all of the nutrients you need from vegetables.
No matter how much fruit you eat, don’t let it replace animal protein and vegetables as the pillars of your diet.

Fruit Is Just One Piece in the Weight Loss Puzzle

No matter how much fruit you eat, don’t let it replace animal protein and vegetables as the pillars of your diet.
Figuring out fruit is an important piece in the weight loss puzzle…
But it’s just one piece.
In order to lose weight—and keep it off—you need a proven roadmap to follow.
Your health is at stake. You don’t have time to waste on another fad diet or trying to figure things out on your own.

FAT CELLS: IS IT POSSIBLE TO SHRINK Naturally?



FAT CELLS




What if I told you that there is a way to physically shrink your fat cells? Countless products and diet plans have promised as much, and more. But in this  article we are going to reveal the method that has worked wonders for hundreds of people worldwide pursuing fat reduction. 


It sounds too good to be true, right? Read on to find out for yourself. Tea has many benefits, for the body, stress and energy levels, and even in the prevention of serious diseases. White, black and green tea have been tested, talked about, and consumed for years on this basis, each with unique but valuable contributions to the body. 


More recently, African Red Tea has been recognised as their equal, if not superior. And here’s why – African red tea shrinks fat cells. Rooibos, is a red bush from South Africa. The leaves are used once fermented in the tea’s production, and they offer a range of benefits. A recipe, as featured in the Red Tea Detox, combines rooibos with a specific blend, working to melt fat. 



Research has shown that components found in the rooibos plant, such as polyphenols and flavonoids, inhibit the formation of new fat cells by 22 percent. The tea significantly lowers dangerous fat found in the blood, such as triglyceride concentrations. Other blends such as green tea, although rich in antioxidants, do not have the same impact on fat cells or weight loss.

African Red Tea Secret to Weightloss Revealed By an Expert Naturopath



African Red Tea



Liz Swann Miller, Noted Naturopath and Nutritional Author - Announces Release of New Book - “The Red Tea Detox” The author had a life-changing event occur while in Africa as a Shaman at a local tribe saved her life. This is when she was handed a secret recipe for a African Red Tea detox.


 It is not often that a groundbreaking book comes to be published as a result of serendipity, but “The Red Tea Detox” by Liz Swann Miller, has one of those awesome back stories. Liz was already a world-famous Naturopath and Nutritional Author when she found time to go on a vacation to Africa. While she was out exploring, she was bit by a poisonous Rattle Snake, and fell unconscious.


What happened after that would change her life. She woke up to the sounds of strange music to find herself in a hut with a Tribal Shaman, and being handed a goblet of some type of liquid to drink which was an African Red Tea . She though about if she should accept the drink or not.


Liz remembered being bitten by a Rattle Snake and collapsing to the ground. She reasoned that if she was still alive, it must have been with the help of this Shaman, so she took the African Red Tea drink. As she took a sip, she noticed other people in the hut. Village elders and other Shaman types sitting around the thatched-roof hut. She was excited and apprehensive at the same time.


 Liz knew she was feeling better as the hours passed. If she could learn the secret of this African Red Tea drink that looked like some kind of Red liquid, she could help thousands of people back home in the USA. Liz quickly discovered that she was feeling more energetic than she had been in years, and was not hungry or depressed either. She had experienced some out-of-control weight gain of late and had little energy.

It must be the Red Tea potion she was given. It took a lot of persuasion, but she eventually was able to write down the Shaman’s recipe. Liz continued drinking this pleasant tasting Red Tea concoction and saw that she was losing fat by the ton, and was simply amazed and delighted.


There was no doubt in her mind that she must put this Red Tea Detox into book form for others to share. After all, the key to not only losing weight, but to gaining wellness is to detox the body. Toxins are naturally produced in the human body as a result of oxidation by Free-Radicals.


Read: FAT CELLS: IS IT POSSIBLE TO SHRINK Naturally?

This is besides the toxins absorbed from the world around us. This new Red Tea Detox is not only capable of cleansing the body, but also speeding up the metabolism without that jittery feeling, while suppressing those hunger cravings that are part of all those other diets.


Liz’s book, “The Red Tea Detox”, is jam-packed with information so that anybody can easily go shopping locally and round-up all of the ingredients needed to make their own Red Tea Detox potion.

 Reader testimonials have been phenomenal SINCE THE LAUNCH OF THIS BOOK.
