I had great fun watching channel 4’s Food hospital this week.
It occurred to me that we could all do with a reminder of what are the better foods. Sure we can eat Paleo or healthy Zone, but im sure it would help to be reminded of stuff like garlic, turmeric, sprouting broccoli, and ginger ( not that I have the faintest idea of what to do with ginger!)
Here are some guidelines I culled out of “Health Defence” , (Dr Paul Clayton.)
Eat more flavonoid rich food. which is stuff like prunes, strawberries, bilberries, apples, citrus fruit, raisins, raspberries, blackberries. red and yellow onions and shallots. walnuts, pecan nuts and tomatoes.
Switch from beer/white wine to red wine
A good anti cancer diet includes onions, walnuts, pecans, tomatoes, tea, coffee rosemary, turmeric and garlic
Tea ( probably without milk and sugar!), especially green tea.
get outside and get some sunshine
anti oxidants; fish oil, turmeric, ginger, curcuminoids
Can anyone add to this list. it would be nice to get it into a handy to carry format so you can carry it around the supermarket.
I read some interesting ideas that a bit of live natural yoghurt does you good, however most probiotics are little more than liquid sugar, and the bacteria they carry may not be what they seem; its like, allegedly , someone saying they will bring George Clooney to your party, only to discover that there is “a” George Clooney who lives in Edmonton and he is a part time road sweeper!
Im aslo beginning to consider experimenting with eating “organs” rather than exclusively meat ( apparently liver/kidneys are good /better for you) and Im plucking up the courage to ask my local butchers to begin ordering “game”: fluffy bunny rabbits, and friendly fowl…. no idea how to cook them
