EAT WELL LIVE WELL: Heart Friendly Recipes




I'm happy to announce this new  Eat Well Live Well event. This is not going to be every month, it might be every two months or 45 days once, it just depends upon my time constraints. I know there are lots and lots of event going on, sometimes I miss a few events. What I think is more events, more fun, more good food. This event is particularly aimed at healthy eating. Almost all the events which we have are aimed at healthy life style of food, but for this one I have decided to take some health related theme for each series. As long as we have something we always take it from granted, and once the moments we start loosing them we deeply regret for not taking care. This happens with everything like in our relationship, any thing, job, food, house, health etc....
 Technology has improved so much and the disease are also keep increasing inspite of all healthy life style which we try to adapt.
When we lose our health we lose almost everything, there is nothing can be more stressful when we are unable to do our own basic needs. The key or main important thing to maintain a good health is food.... Not just food, what we eat, when we eat are the most important. If you have a very good, perfect and healthy lunch and skip your breakfast and dinner doesn't help you maintain a good health.
Along with good food you should also have proper eating habits without skipping any of your meals. No matter how busy you are, take time to sit, relax and enjoy your every meal. I know it may not be possible if you are overloaded with work, but still you can try. If you have to spend some extra money for your good food, if it's affordable for you, without having a second thought, spend the money and have good food.
Right now coming to our first series of  Eat Well Live Well, I have chosen Heart Friendly Recipes as the theme.To keep your heart healthy along with good eating habit, you should also have good exercise and stress free.
To have a good diet you should know about the food groups, some of the foods you need more and some very less.
Fruits and vegetables has to be your first third of your diet.
Starchy Food has to be next third like rice, bread, pasta etc... use wholemeal as much as possible.
Protein should be the final third like meat, eggs, fish and other dairy products
High fat and sugar should be in very less amount.


Eat atleast two portions of oily fish every week to maintain a healthy heart.
Cut down the saturated fats like butter, margarine, coconut oil etc and replace it with unsaturated fats like olive oil, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil or soya oil, doesn't mean that you can eat chicken deep fried in olive oil.
Try to grill instead of frying.
Salt is one of the major cause of heart disease, cut down your salt level as much as possible.


Prevention is always better than cure, make a few changes to your life style to maintain a health heart. So come join with me and cook heart friendly recipes to care for you and your family, and share it with this event to help others to maintain a healthy diet.


The above all information regarding heart healthy diet is from British Heart Foundation, read more from here.

Thanks for stopping by and I'm enjoying reading your blog. I'll be poking around for a while, but wanted to stop and say I agree with eating well and taking the time to stop to eat (I have a page and post talking about that!). We really changed our eating habits after my daughter was diagnosed with a kidney disease, not that we ate badly, but now, food is very important to our lives. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day!
