10 Minute low calorie Thai Green Chicken CurryWritten by Carl Harris
Curry is great for a once a week treat at your local restaurant but here is one you can enjoy more often. It is a fantastic alternative to a regular calorific Thai curry. Itís lighter, quicker and easier. The killer in a lot of Thai cooking is coconut milk which is quite high in fat and calories. Now Iím not a big follower of low fat foods but I donít see point in consuming a huge amount fat or calories in one meal. I would rather knock out some of calories in dinner and then have desert. Lite coconut milk can be used as an alternative, but I experimented with other ingredients to replace it altogether. I found that pureed vegetables or a quality low fat creamy soup were both very successful and tasty.
Ingredients 2x Skinless Chicken breasts diced 1x Tbs Thai Green Curry paste 2x Handfuls of Beans/Bok Choy or something green 1x Diced Onion 1x Tetra Pack of Pumpkin Soup or Pureed Pumpkin 2x Cups of Rice
Herbs to help manage cholesterolWritten by Anonymous
Question : I'm a woman aged 43. Recently, my total cholesterol was detected as 6.37 mmol/L. I have no other condition except a family history with hypertension. What should I take to lower my cholesterol level?
Answer : A high total cholesterol reading is from 6.21 mmol/L and higher. High cholesterol can be controlled by taking guggulipid, which helps lower serum LDL cholesterol and triglycerides levels and increase HDL-cholesterol levels, provided you are consistently taking right dosage, which may be six to eight capsules a day in your case. Guggulipid is an Indian herb which contains guggulsterone E and Z. They help reduce LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol and triglycerides levels and increase HDL (high density lipoprotein) cholesterol levels.
