Avoid overcooking your food

In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I’m going to talk about not overcooking your food. Cooked foods have minerals, fats, carbs and protein but when you cook your food you destroy most valuable nutrients like enzymes, micronutrients, phytochemcials, vitamins and antioxidants. I think human beings are the only species that destroy most of the nutrients in their food before they eat it ... Seattle Restaurants

Fried Onions

In this section of Seattle Restaurants I’m going to talk about fried onions. Many people like fried onions in their food. Cuisines such as Indian, Italian, Persian, and Thai use fried onions for flavor extensively and once people get use to the taste, it is hard to give up the addiction. There are two things about fried onions in particular that are not necessarily good for you. First, many of the nutrients in vegetables and fruits are unstable and react quite fast to heat, air, water, and light. As soon as fruits and vegetables are picked they start to lose their nutrients, although at a very low rate initially. .... Seattle Restaurants

5 reasons why you should avoid Canned food; All because they are harmful

In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I'm going to talk about hams of canned food. No logical, reasonable person would suggest that canned foods and canned fruits and vegetables are as good or better than fresh foods, vegetables, and fruits. It is obvious that fresh is good and retains most of its nutrients. This much, almost no one argues with. But the big question is how bad canned products are, really? Well the answer might surprise you or not ... Seattle Restaurants

Avoiding plastic or BPA containers might not be enough to protect you against hormone-disruptive chemicals

According to a study published in the Nature Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology, avoiding BPA containers and personal products that contain phthalates might not be enough to protect people against toxic levels of BPA and phthalates. Both bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates are hormone-disruptive chemicals that are widely spread in environment. Previous studies have linked phthalates to infertility in men and BPA to neurological problems, cancer, obesity, hyperactivity, stress and diabetes ... hormone-disruptive-chemicals-BPA

In catabolic phase our body is busy digesting the food we just ate and is in glycogen storage or refueling phase, in anabolic phase our body is done digesting our foods and can rest, repair and rebuild itself and get rid of toxicity.

The Glowing Green Smoothie

You may ask yourself why most people have a hard time changing their diet even if they know what they are eating is toxic to their health. Well, the truth is that the food corporations spends millions of dollars on research to find out the combination of ingredients, additives and preservatives that are addictive and familiar to human taste. These toxic foods, additives and preservatives trigger the center of the brain so people get sudden pleasure after consuming them ... The Glowing Green Smoothie

Onions were brought to US by Christopher Columbus and today Spain, Russia, US, India and China are among the largest producers of onions in the world.

Natural Foods and Supplements

In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I’m going to talk about natural organic foods and supplements. You’ve probably heard of the expression “let the food be your medicine and let the medicine be your food”. Natural organic foods have many health benefits and are a high source of minerals, vitamins, nutrients, enzymes and antioxidants. The modern life style and the industrial pollution has made it difficult to get all the nutrients necessary for the body even from organic natural foods. Taking natural food supplements improves health and balances the minerals and nutrients in the body ... Seattle Restaurants

But unfortunately different fish contains different levels of mercury.
