Without wanting to upset everything in your habits, here are some small resolutions to include in your menu to quickly see the impact on the he alth and general mood of your family.
Eat more fish
84% of Quebecers don't eat enough fish. However, these are an excellent source of omega-3 and fatty acid which are excellent for he alth. Quebecers should eat at least two fish meals a week. Even pregnant women should consume it regularly to optimize the neurological development of their baby. A study has proven that the risks of mercury in fish are outweighed by any benefits of consuming it.
Reconnecting with soups
This is a great way to increase our vegetable intake! 55.2% of Canadians eat less than 5 servings of fruits or vegetables per day. And what's more, nothing is easier than making a soup, a soup or a cream! The speed is even more apparent when we think about doing more to stock our freezer. For a quick soup, we put washed and cut vegetablesin a homemade or store-bought broth, add rice, pasta, legumes or barley, spices and pesto. You can make excellent soups by putting various vegetables (zucchini, squash, sweet potatoes, peppers, leeks, etc.) in a roasting pan with a drizzle of oil and spices. Then we add broth and put everything in a blender.
With homemade muffins, we are sure to know what is hidden inside. Very important concern for families with children or adults with allergies, but also for those who care about their diet. You can always improve recipes by adding flax seeds, adding applesauce, swapping white flour for wheat flour, garnishing with dried fruits or nuts, changing the sugar for brown sugar, etc. Have an afternoon of muffin cooking with the girls. Vary the kinds, formats and flavors and share costs, time and results. Muffins keep well in the freezer and are great snacks.
Taste new vegetables
Bok choy is rich in potassium, vitamins A and C and folic acid!The squash brings color to our plate in addition to being a source of antioxidant substances.
Okra naturally binds soups and stews with its sticky flesh. In addition, it is a source of vitamin B9 and magnesium.
Brown carrots, moresweeter than the traditional ones, the white eggplants whose flavor is delicate and the white asparagus, more tender than its green cousins, will amaze your children and your guests!
At the market, indulge in some new vegetables. Feel free to ask your grocer questions or search the Internet or your cookbooks for tasty ways to prepare them.
Dare more flavor
Canadians have a s alty tooth! Prepared foods and meals prepared in fast food restaurants in the country are the s altiest in the world! S alt intake should be about 2.3 g per day. Here, we consume twice as much. Attention danger! The sodium in s alt retains water in the blood which can cause hypertension. Instead of shaking the s alt shaker, opt instead this year for the other little spice jars we have. Adding flavor (not s alt!) will titillate your senses. Your meals will be different, amazing and delicious. Discover turmeric, curry, cumin, rosemary, etc.
