Benefits Of Drinking Soy Milk

 

Today soy milk is consumed all over the world and has replaced the use of regular milk for many people.

One class, which is 250ml, of soya milk has approximately 4 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, which is total of 140 kCal. It doesn’t have any lactose in it. Because of that this milk is very much recommended for people with lactose intolerance. People with lactose intolerance can’t drink regular cow’s milk and this is the perfect substitute. The downside is that the milk doesn’t have very much calcium in it. That’s why many manufacturers add additional calcium in this milk to add more value compared to regular milk.

You can find soy milk in any vegan food store or near vegetarian products in the market. Also they serve it in vegetarian restaurants. Vegetarians use it instead of cow’s milk to still get the benefits of milk. Vegans usually have much less sources of protein so soybeans are a great resource.

Different soy products have different taste. Some say it’s good, some say it doesn’t taste

Snacks for Kids

Giving your child money and letting him decide what snack to get at school is not really a good idea. A child is generally drawn to sweet stuff, and that’s what he would probably buy with his money. Driving through a fast food restaurant to buy his snacks before dropping him off to school is not a better idea either. You’ll just be loading his body with unhealthy ingredients.

Well, there are snacks you can prepare that won’t be harmful to your kid and don’t take hours to prepare. Here are some of them:

  • Peach pops – Kids (of all ages) love those literally cool pops. Instead of giving your kid one that’s laced with preservatives, why not make your own? You can use peach (or any of your kid’s fave fruit, for that matter) to make a peach puree and have it frozen.
  • Watermelon salsa – If your kid loves tortilla chips (who doesn’t?), instead of making tomato salsa, make it more exciting by substituting it with watermelon. This is especially ideal during those hot days.

Bit of Tomato History

According to The Oxford Companion to Food, the tomato, or Solanum lycopersicum, the tomato originated in north western South America, but not in its present form of course. It is thought that the original tomato was L. cerasiforme, or perhaps the “currant tomato,” which bears a long spray of tiny red fruits which split on the plant. L. cerasiforme has the greatest genetic similarity, however.

The edible descendant of our tomato ancestor made it’s way up to Mexico and was eventually domesticated/cultivated by the Aztec. There is no evidence that the wild variety of tomato was eaten in their lands of origin. All tomatoes consumed in South America were reintroduced after the Spanish Conquest.

There was a bit of a misunderstanding on the Spandiards’ part regarding the name of the tomato. The Aztecs called the tomato “xitomatl,” which meant “plump fruit. The tomatillo, or husk tomato, was “miltomatl.” The Spaniards didn’t recognize the importance of the prefixes, however, and just called it “tomatl.” That then turned into “tomate.”

The tomato first reached Europe in the 1500s and it is in the mid-1500s that evidence of their existence in Europe can be traced back. An Italian herbalist used “mala aurea” (golden

Olives

They are mentioned frequently in the Bible, both Old and New Testament, and of course who can dismiss the venerable olive branch which symbolizes peace. Hebrew cuisine valued the fruit as well as the oil, which was considered holy and had many uses, including oil lamps, personal grooming and religious ceremonies.

The island of Crete made a major impact in the olive business several thousand years B.C. but has been dwarfed in modern times by larger and more populated countries. Case in point, Spain takes top honors for introducing olive trees to the Americas, where they showed up around the time Columbus raised his sails and headed West. (Who knows, maybe Columbus had something to do with it.) It is believed that Spanish missionaries in the 18th century brought the olive tree to U.S. territory as they traveled up through Mexico, finding their way to the rich soils of California before it was settled and achieved statehood. Still a major industry in Spain, they boast the largest production with approximately 6 million tons per year. Italy and Greece place second and third with 2.5 to 3.5 million tons annually. There’s no question that the Mediterranean countries lead

Make Raw Coconut Almond Yogurt

To make the yogurt you need 1 cup of raw unheated almonds, 1 ½ cups of fresh coconut meat (scraped from the inside of young Thai coconuts), water from young Thai coconut, and ½ teaspoon of probiotic powder.

You should first soak the raw almonds in water for 24 hours in order to activate dormant enzymes and release the nutrients. You should then add the soaked almonds, young coconut meat, coconut water, and probiotics to a blender and blend until smooth.

Using a fine mesh strainer you should strain the liquid into a glass bowl then stir and sift the mixture to remove excess fibers and almond skins.

You should then cover the glass bowl with a paper towel and let it sit for at least 3-4 hours. Allowing the liquid to sit for sometime aids in allowing the probiotics to proliferate and break down the yogurt. You should note that the longer that you allow the liquid to sit the tangier and sour it will be.

The best time to take the yogurt is in the morning or in the evening. For ideal results, it’s recommended that you mix your yogurt with your

Pectin

Pectin was first isolated from plant material in 1825 by Henri Braconnot, a French chemist who pioneered a number of discoveries in plant and food science. People were, of course, well aware that some fruits gelled much better and faster than others, but Braconnot was the first to explain why. At the peak of the industrial revolution in the 1920s and 1930s, factories were set up specifically to extract the bonding agent. Most of the commercial variety is extracted from citrus peels or from non-marketable apples (e.g. crab apples). It is mostly manufactured in the European Union, with countries like France and Germany supplying the lion’s share of the world market.

Pectin is a semi-essential ingredient in the modern process of making jams, jellies, marmalade, and other preserves. It’s deemed semi-essential because preserves can be made without it, but not in the quantity or consistency that the world market demands. When the polymer is combined with sugar and heated up, it forms a gelatinous semi-liquid that gives jams and jellies their consistencies. In the good old days, people would make their jams through a laborious process, boiling down the fruit for an extended period of time (at
