What have I been eating lately?

I havent been feeling well lately so decided to do a little investigating of my own by researching foods that make us healthy. You maybe interested to hear what I have discovered!

Backache – eat plenty of oily fish, cabbage, guava, pawpaw and kiwi fruit for vitamin C – cut down on – coffee, tea and other drinks containing caffeine, fat and sugar if you are overweight.

Joint Problems – Eat plenty of oily fish for essential fatty acids, fresh fruit and vegetables for beta carotene vitamin C, avocados, nuts and sunflower seeds for vitamin E and whole grains, shellfish, cereals and eggs for selenium

Menstrual problems and PMT –  Eat plenty of small, frequent meals high in starchy carbohydrates and low in fat, supplementary evening primrose oil and vitamin B6, foods containing vitamin B6 such as meat, fish and whole grains. Cut down on – salt and caffeine in tea and coffee. Avoid – alcohol

Thyroid Disorders – Eat plenty of foods rich in B vitamins, such as fish, whole grains, pulses and seeds. Cut down in – raw cabbage, turnips, swedes, peanuts and mustard which can inhibit the body’s ability tu use iodine and smoking, alcohol and caffeine, if the problem is an overactive thyroid gland.

Varicose Veins  – Take plenty of fiber-rich foods such as whole meal bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, water at least 2 litres a day and foods rich in vitamin E, such as seed oils, wheat germ and avocados and nuts.
