Healthy Diet: Chicken is healthier - MINUS THE SKIN

Planning on revamping our fridge with healthier food options?

Once a week, all of us would hit the groceries and shop for food. Why not take a look at that chicken?

Chicken - thought as a healthier kind of animal meat - but chicken meat can be the more healthier minus the skin. Why? 100grams of raw chicken breast without skin, for example, contains 110 calories ONLY.

Why without that yummy skin? Here is some reasons why.

Chicken Skin included, 110 calories jumps up to 170 calories with saturated fat being a big chunk of this big jump. Saturated fat when consumed by us, it is converted in to LDL or "bad" cholesterol. LDL is circulated through the bloodstream, and in excess, gets deposited in the arteries which causes narrowing of these arteries; with narrowing arteries, it increases the risk for heart problems and strokes.

So, with the skin off chicken is healthier.

How do we cook it to make it even more healthier?

Research points that, using oils low in saturated fat and high in unsaturated fat - such as canola oil, olive oil, and sunflower oil  - will 90-100% boost the health benefits of eating lean chicken meat.

Therefore, when doing groceries - Chicken without the yummy skin is a healthier option Always.

A Great Way to Stay Healthy – Drink Some Alcohol

With new studies being performed each year on how to stay healthy, we cannot deny that the debate concerning alcohol being good for the health has been going on for decades. Most people think drinking alcohol is bad for your health, and it is seen as a vice that destroys a person’s well-being.

No wonder, why the people of old drank wine and lived longer than us.
Well, we all know that the saying, “too much of everything is bad for your health”, will always hold true right? So, if alcohol is taken in moderate amounts; therefore, it is safe to say it is healthy. But, how much alcohol is good? Studies have shown that drinking 1 glass of wine or a glass of beer is beneficial to your health. But, keep in mind and always remember, it only says 1 GLASS! Please DO NOT OVER DO IT!
This is good news for you guys, who just like to drink to socialize. So, always remember to drink ONLY 1 glass of wine or beer. I really like to STRESS on ONE GLASS, because anything more than that is already totally wrong.
