Vitamins and national food traditions
The Japanese and Chinese eat meat and vegetables with rice. The Spaniards hit the menu – seafood and tomatoes. Ukraine – borsch and Salo, in Russia – soup and porridge. And rightly so. To keep a long your health. scientists strongly recommend to respect the power of national tradition, in which the need for vitamins is met, not overseas fruit, but by their own family.
In connection with the distribution.fashion on a healthy diet we had in the paddock favorite cutlets and borscht, and pickles with bacon and dumplings have become almost enemies. In the popular media are harping on the theme of how to make us eat seafood, rice and exotic fruits. But scientists recommend not to succumb to hysteria and to abandon habitual for our stomach food.
It turns out that our digestive tract spends a lot of time to develop a complete set of enzymes for breaking down exotic food. Our Slavic because the body is better adapted to the processing of the food, which for centuries nourished our ancestors.
Voluntary renunciation of the “historical” food and the transition to unfamiliar food is threatened by the spread of “American” disease. After all, America is a relatively young country. Live here the vast majority of settlers and immigrants who lost their homeland with its culinary traditions.
Has naturally become in recent years the growth in popularity of motion – power system local wares (eng. Local wares – products of local). Called for another “hundred miles”. The essence of the movement is to eat food grown in the area with a minimum of flavorings and colorings. Besides the nutritional value of such foods is higher due to the fact that it is more fresh and fully consistent with the enzyme composition of the gastrointestinal tract of the residents of the area.
For Slavic cuisine sauces are uncommon exotic, complex side dishes or soups. Our culinary traditions are simple and nourishing. The emphasis has always been soups and cereals, supplying the organisms of our ancestors key vitamins, complex carbohydrates and micronutrients. This provided people with energy and high efficiency. The most revered of vegetables were beets. cabbage. carrots and pumpkin (it was something before Columbus, who brought the potatoes. for the people that he is grateful to this day!).
The same cabbage is eaten all year round in all types – fried, steamed, baked, booze, added to the soup. This not only gave a whole range of vitamins contained in the cabbage, but pretty decently and cleaned the body! Pumpkin seeds not only enjoyed, but also extracted the oil from it. Our national “drug” – sunflower seeds, rich in vitamin E.
Due to the large scale drug trafficking we forget, what is pies and pies with poppy seeds, and our ancestors before them were big hunters!
The descendants of the ancient Slavs possess a unique enzyme that breaks down lactose. And all thanks to the fact that in no other place did not consume so much milk and its derivatives. Milk for centuries, and they drank fresh sour, cheese made from it. So the problems with calcium was not.
National pride was considered and pork fat. Although pork fat content is high, but it provides valuable iron and protein, while fat has always been a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Fish to the table served mainly river.
Sugar did not exist, caries too. The sole sweetener of food and drink was honey, the nutritional value of which is priceless. Desserts were diverse. Yes they are not particularly amused. From what we used to call “yum-yum” except honey berries were available. the dried fruits and their derivatives.
