Most people think that when one goes to diet one looses the opportunity of eating their favorite food. On the contrary, research shows that some foods which were earlier believed to cause problems to health are found to improve one’s health.
Coffee is one of them. Excluding the sugar and creamer, drinking coffee moderately has proven to reduce the probability of getting some diseases. This may be your reason to drink coffee now.
Chocolate was also thought to have some negative effect on one’s health. However, research, again, has proven that dark chocolate contributes the compounds, known as flavonoid antioxidants and polyphenols, into the body.
Polyphenols and antioxidants are known to reduce the risk of heart attacks since they reduce the risk of blood clots. Studies have also shown that chocolate literally makes people feel happier. Eating about three squares of dark chocolate a day is great for your health so go ahead and indulge.
Pizza may be a healthy option to one’s diet given the right amount of intake and the correct choice of toppings and ingredients used. For example, pizza should not be topped with pepperoni, sausage and other toppings that are unhealthy.
Usually pizza is topped with tomatoe sauce which is very rich in lycopene, an antioxidant . And it could be more healthy if you put vegetables as your toppings instead of pepperoni and sausages, and switch your crust from white to whole wheat. Fresh tomatoes are also good for your pizza.
Egg is known to be rich in bad cholesterol especially the yolk. However, it has just been discovered that eggs are rich in protein and omega -3 fatty acids. Usually eggs are included in the breakfast menu. To eat eggs also on lunch and dinner is already too much. It should be eaten only in moderation.
