Cakes, sweets and fruits – some useful advices

Mark Tompkins Canaccord has some useful advices for you today.

Fresh pineapple that you are not going to use right away, you can leave on a saucer with sugar, with the chopped side faced down and place it in the fridge. Pineapple stored like this can stay fresh very long time.

Apples for meals are selected in this way: for sweet dishes pick sour ones, and for salty, no matter how strange it may sound, they should be sweeter. Sweet apples are mealier and fit better with the salty, spicy dishes.

Cakes that stick to the pan can be easily removed from it when just for a moment put above a court with boiling water.

Old and hard rolls will be fresh again if you put them in dry clay court then immersed it in hot water. Remove the baking when the water cools.

Fresh and hot cake or bread is easier to slice with heated knife. The easiest way to cut the cake is with cold thin wire.

Bread is best kept in a metal box with holes that allow air to flow. Certainly it should not be left in napkins, paper or plastic bags.

To set the piece of cake in the middle of the plate, before placing it make the plate a bit wet. The cake will easily slip to the middle.

Cakes will not have burnt bottom if you sprinkle dry table salt on the bottom of oven, suggests Mark T Canaccord.

Mark Tompkins Canaccord - Fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables

Vegetables –

Vegetables are various plants that can be eaten fresh, cooked or canned, explains Mark Tompkins Canaccord. It can be divided in groups depending on the edible parts of the plant. Usually it is served as a salty food, but there are exceptions when it is used as an ingredient in candies, jams, etc. Vegetables are served and consumed in several ways, as a main dish, side dish, salad…

Its nutritional content varies from plant to plant. Basically they contain little proteins and fat, and are rich in different proportions of vitamins, pro-vitamin, minerals, fiber and carbohydrates. Because of their composition, are often used for medical purposes – acting as antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and anticancer. But vegetables often contain toxins and antinutrients. However, explains Mark Tompkins, with cooking and heat treatment the concentration of toxins can be reduced.

Diets that rely on consuming large amounts of fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of heart disease and type I diabetes, problems with bones, and potassium from vegetables helps to prevent the formation of kidney stones.

 

Fruits –

Fruits are actually products of flowers. They are precious and irreplaceable for the good work and vitality of human body. Fruit belongs to a special group of foods that are (with exception of nuts and dried fruit) with low energy value, high water content (except bananas), a small amount of protein and fat, a substantial amount of carbohydrate and cellulose, mineral substances and vitamins, as well as other nutrients such as enzymes, organic acids, anthocyanins, tannins, etc. Because of such content, fruits are of great importance for human health.

Fruit is a rich source of vitamins, adds Mark Tompkins Canaccord, although it contains less when compared to vegetables. It mostly contains vitamin C and carotene. Their amount depends on the type of fruit, variety and a number of other factors. Vitamin C is not equally distributed in the whole fruit. It has the most in the epidermis and below it. Another important vitamin is the carotene. It is contained in: apricot, pineapple, prunes, peaches, watermelon … Although in smaller quantities, fruit also contains other vitamins like C, E, and B group vitamins.

Fruit also has a beneficial influence on vision. At least three servings of fruit each day can significantly lower the risk of macular degeneration that occurs with aging. This healing effect is attributed to antioxidants – vitamins A, C and E, finishes Mark Tompkins Canaccord.

Mark Tompkins Canaccord - BASIC PRINCIPLES OF PROPER NUTRITION

BASIC PRINCIPLES OF PROPER NUTRITION

Nutrition is an essential factor for optimal growth and development of the human organism and directly affects its ability to work and life expectancy, says Mark Tompkins Canaccord. To conduct a proper diet, it is necessary to know the basic principles of proper nutrition, and those principles are:

 

Rational nutrition is the ratio between food intake and food consumption of body needed for relevant processes, such as its temperature, functioning of internal organs, physical activity. Rational nutrition also means consuming foods that are less expensive, but equally valuable, so the nutritional value of the food is not reduced.

Balanced and moderate diet offers optimal amount of nutrients. It shouldn’t be either too abundant or too scarce. Eating too much fat results in obesity which is associated with various diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart attack, stroke and increased fats in the blood.

Malnutrition, depending on the size and type of deficit, leads to decline in work capacity, which implies the mental and physical work. It also reduces the resistance to various infections, such as viral infections, various vitamin deficiencies, rickets, scurvy, pellagra, beriberi and other anemia. This means that improper nutrition, overabundant or insufficient, results in disorders in human body and weakens its resistance.

A variety of mixed diet includes two terms:

1 food groups

2 types of food

During the daily diet it is necessary to take at least one food from all seven food groups. These foods can mixed in different dishes and should be varied and without frequent repetition. Nutrition therefore, should not be monotonous.

Balanced meals – the daily rhythm of diets should consist of many in number but little in amount foods. It is wrong if the entire daily amount of food is taken in the form of only one or two meals.

Therefore stick to these principles and you’ll have a healthy body, both physically and mentally, finishes Mark Tompkins Canaccord.
