Nutritionists have made a list of “winter” products
In the cold season we are moving less, eating more, and generally the body tries to save up fat in case of starvation, a kind of genetic memory.
But we want to stay in shape anytime of year, but because winter diet should be corrected.
Nutritionists have compiled a list of winter foods that not only help to support the immune system during epidemics and colds, but will allow the fat deposits on the sides to spoil your mood.
Of course, in the winter apples, which have lain for some time, certain vitamins becomes smaller. Thus, ascorbic acid in winter varieties of apples is virtually absent, but the apples do not become less useful. A large number of dietary fiber, especially pectin that makes the fruit a must-have in the winter diet. Pectin improves intestinal peristalsis, cleanses the body of toxins, all sorts of dangerous substances that enter with food. Tying food in the small intestine, pectin slows down the output, and therefore the feeling of satiety lasts longer, and the absorption of the necessary elements going on better.
Besides apples are rich in pectin, pears and citrus.
Red root is an ideal vegetable for the winter – it is well kept, unlike many other root vegetables, while retaining all their useful properties. Beets are a great winter source of folic acid contains bioflavonoids, which strengthen capillary walls, beatin contributing to the complete breakdown of protein. All known laxative effect of boiled beets and fresh juice restores the mucous membranes of the digestive tract.
The beets should be added, and a carrot – even if it is kept a little bit worse, but perfectly complement winter meals with vitamins and dietary fiber.
Artichoke, of course, the fruit is exotic and cost a few more than apples and pears, but at least the subject, nutritionists in one voice say – avocados are a popular fruit, especially in winter, when vitamin becomes smaller. Avocados are a great source of potassium – this mineral green flesh much more than in bananas. Potassium is needed to improve the peristalsis of the intestines, and it significantly strengthens the heart muscle. Thanks to the gentle fiber, avocado helps to break down food and eliminate toxins and fatty acids (mostly omega 3), which give the avocado a buttery consistency, strengthen capillary walls making them more elastic, improve the functioning of the bronchi, enhance the protective properties of the mucous membranes. It is clear that in the period of rampant respiratory viruses all this is of particular importance. And by the way, avocado is quite a bit of sugars, so it is allowed to eat even diabetes.
Other sources of omega 3 is fish, sesame and linseed oil.
This traditional and very affordable, the food is not as simple as it might seem at first glance. Except that sauerkraut retains almost all the vitamins and particularly minerals in fresh cabbage when fermented, which takes place in the fermentation process, it increases the concentration of some nutrients, for example, ascorbic acid. Sauerkraut promotes normalization of the intestinal microflora and, therefore, proper digestion, with gas from her significantly less than that of fresh cabbage.
Alas, have sauerkraut contraindications – for example, it is not recommended to give children under 3 years of age and have a sick stomach ulcers and problems with the thyroid gland. In this case, come to the aid of cauliflower and broccoli.
Ginger root is very important during the winter cold, because he not only successfully fights bacteria, and this ginger better than garlic. The volatile essential oil and a unique substance gingerol stimulate blood circulation, enhance local immunity, act directly on microbes, as they possess pronounced antimicrobial property. Due to this, ginger also will help to avoid the development of intestinal infection, if you ate something for the holiday table.
But ginger root has contraindications that are important: high pressure, high temperature, pregnancy at a late period and taking certain medications.
Of course, this is not all products, which are especially important in the winter, but most importantly, the food must be balanced and without busting, not only in the winter. And listen to your own body, it will tell you what you need at the moment.
