Silver Bullet Flax Seed Oil

MB 08-20-2019

The super star among all eatable oils – often called the Happiness Oil. Recent research even assumes that flax seed oil has a preventive effect on diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. However, this has not been proven.
Flax seed oil has an extremely high content of omega-3 fatty acid. Particularly worth mentioning is the alpha-linolenic acid, an important building block for the tissues of heart, retina and brain.
Flax seed oil has a fine nutty aroma, but is very sensitive and turns rancid quickly when exposed to light and air. Therefore, purchase flax seed oil in the smallest possible containers and store in the refrigerator. You will find that most containers on the market have a comparatively short shelf life.
Never heat flax seed oil! Use in salad, yogurt, or add after cooking to oatmeal or vegetables.

Mushrooms – Protein or Vegetable?

So you’ve got mushrooms in your Metabolic Balance nutrition plan: are they a protein or a vegetable? That is the question!

MB 08-18-2019

Fish, meat, poultry, eggs and cow’s milk products are great proteins. Vegetarian proteins are soy, legumes, sprouts, nuts and seeds and some mushrooms. In the case of mushrooms, however, a distinction is made between those rich in protein and those considered a vegetable. At Metabolic Balance we distinguish between protein and vegetable based on the biological value of the mushrooms. This is calculated based on the amount of protein in a food that our bodies can use directly – basically this needs to be a good value for us to consider as a protein. 

The protein mushrooms are oyster and shiitake mushrooms. They can be used fresh or dried. Preparation suggestion can be fried in a wok or pan. They make a great mushroom risotto-style dish with a delicious cauliflower rice! All other mushrooms, such as button mushrooms, king oyster mushrooms, or chanterelles, are considered vegetables and can be combined with a protein.

Born to be a Glamour Root

Do you have a favorite recipe for carrots? We love them in every variation, but freshly pulled out of the ground, carrots taste the best!

After shopping, carrots should be taken out of their packaging immediately and preferably stored in the vegetable drawer of the fridge. We also advise always removing the top greens before storing, but don’t throw them away! Carrot greens are far too good not to use – we suggest adding them to a green smoothie like this one … simply mix the green stems from three carrots with 400 milliliters of water, 150g baby spinach or romaine lettuce, a peeled orange, mango and banana with a tablespoon of cold pressed flax seed oil! 

This is dining at its best – it not only tastes great, but it also provides plenty of energizing power and goodness!

By the way, did you know that the naturally contained alpha and beta carotene in carrots are a precursor of vitamin A? This is what makes carrots healthy “eye and skin vegetables”. In addition they have lovely B vitamins and vitamin E plus an excellent level of the minerals magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and iron as well as the fiber pectin.  

A couple of tips: … always add a little oil to your carrot dishes, otherwise the containing fat-soluble vitamins cannot be used to their fullest.
Secondly if your carrots should go slightly soft, simply wrap them in a moist kitchen towel or put them in water. Voila, they will become crisp again! (This rejuvenating tip applies to all root vegetables.)
