Make some food misunderstandings
I don’t know when it started, people have a modeled view of nutrition in food.
Mentioning certain nutrients will definitely make people think of certain foods. When it comes to certain foods, people often think of ingredients related to certain nutrition.
銆€銆€For example, when it comes to vitamin C, people will immediately think of lemons and oranges; when it comes to potassium, some people will think of bananas immediately; when it comes to carotene, some people will definitely think of carrots; when it comes to spinach, they will immediately think of it.Oxalic acid; when it comes to celery, it will immediately think of lowering blood pressure. In fact, the health effects of food cannot be modeled like this.
銆€銆€The nutritional truth of many foods will make us repeat!
Do not believe?
Take a look at the following examples of the nutritional value of food: – Who is the potassium contained in the food-containing potassium champion, about 50% more than bananas.
In fact, all potatoes are an excellent source of potassium.
Just replace a bowl of rice with the same starch content of potatoes, and replace the potassium by 10 times!
People with tight urine output, such as diabetics, kidney stones, gout patients, hypertensive patients, etc., as well as those who eat too salty, can easily lose too much potassium. It is a good idea to eat potato instead of staple food.
銆€銆€In fact, among the green leafy vegetables, the potassium content exceeds that of bananas, such as spinach, kale, lettuce leaves, spinach, leeks, and purple-backed sunflower.
Since the Chinese can eat a wide variety of green leafy vegetables, why bother to resort to bananas like Westerners who do not like green vegetables?
銆€銆€- A really good source of magnesium Magnesium is important for strong bones and blood pressure control. It is also known as “anti-stress nutrients.”
But when it comes to magnesium, people usually think of bananas.
In fact, it is nothing more than a magnesium champion in the fruit.
Almost all dark green leafy vegetables are a good source of magnesium and can reach or exceed levels in bananas.
The reason is simple: every chlorophyll molecule contains a magnesium ion, so the greener the color, the more magnesium it contains.
銆€銆€Another best source of magnesium is nuts and seeds. For example, eating 50 grams of watermelon is equivalent to eating 200 grams of green leafy vegetables.
However, the transition of green leafy vegetables is only supplemented by bananas, about one-twentieth of nuts.
Therefore, if you are afraid of being fat, it is best to eat green leafy vegetables supplemented with potassium and magnesium.
銆€銆€- Do not eat vegetables and fruits can also add vitamins Generally, tomatoes are considered to be excellent experts in vitamin C in vegetables. In fact, potatoes contain more vitamin C than tomatoes!
Not only potato, sweet potato, taro, yam and other potato foods are rich in vitamin C.
The vitamin C contained in various green leafy vegetables is basically more than tomato.
銆€銆€Green pepper is indeed the vitamin C champion in vegetables, but its acidity is reduced, and the loss of vitamin C in casting is relatively large.
Although the vitamin C content of potatoes is only supplemented by green peppers, the loss of vitamin C in the cooking process is small due to the strong protective effect of starch on vitamin C.
Therefore, if you use potatoes as a staple food, even if you no longer eat other vegetables and fruits, vitamin C can meet the needs of the human body.
In the past, northerners could not eat vegetables in winter, but many people did not lack vitamin C because they often used potatoes and sweet potatoes as staple foods.
銆€銆€- Summary To understand the nutritional value of food, don’t just remember a few so-called “representatives”. In fact, the nutritional value of many foods is not worse than them, but the popularity is only a little bit.
Therefore, a healthy diet does not have to be constrained to a certain food, the most important thing is a reasonable mix of all kinds of food.
A food you don’t like, you can use other foods instead.
– Is this going to be easier and happier?
