The Value of Carrots and Nuts

Many people around the world are searching for a better way in life. Better diet and a healthier lifestyle. In a diet pattern food requires re-education of our taste buds. A therapeutic diet free from saturated fats and highly refined foods will help to improve a person's health and may even treat an illness.

Fibre Is very important because it makes food pass quickly through your body. It can only be found in legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and whole grains. Having fibre in the large intestine is vital because it attracts and binds water from the large intestine which helps your stool to be soft and not small and hard as a result it passes quickly through the colon.

A low fibre diet may cause cancer of the colon, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and many other disease. To be sure that you are getting enough fibre in your diet eat a good variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and whole grains daily. It is said that a cup of raw shredded carrots provides 31,000 units of vitamin A and baked carrots provides 38,00 unit of vitamin A. Carrots help to prevents infections of all types especially the eyes, throat, and respiratory tracts. Carrot juice is great for night blindness just 1 glass a day for at least 10 to 28 days will help to improve your eyes.

My favourite nuts are almond and Brazil nuts. Nuts are rich and very nutritious they also vary in value. Almond nuts are rich in calcium therefore great for teeth and bones also a great body builder. Magnesium which is found in nuts is a natural antidote for stress. Be sure to get peanut butter that are low in salt and sugar. if possible reduced salt and sugar. Better still go for ALMOND BUTTER.
