Give Brussels sprouts a chance this fall!!

Brussels sprouts Packed with nutrientsđź‘Ť

These little guys are so good for us, and with a little help can become everyone’s favorite vegetable. It is not a age thing, it just how you take the smell and the texture of these cute round cabbage looking vegetables.

A fall vegetable, Brussels sprouts are from the cabbage family and packed with nutrients. As I have learned from years of preparing them, I believe fresh ones taste much better than frozen ones. I use salt and cheese to sautéed them and serve them immediately or sautéed them with glazed balsamic vinegar.

Spring hair styles are all about healthy hair

Hair styles for this spring, can be explained in two words: natural and accessorized.

Models on runways had loose hair braids, and pony tails, and most had gold hair accessories pulling or parting their hairs in clean parts.

what was more noticeable was the look of healthy shiny hair.

Here is a healthy diet for healthy beautiful hair for all year round.

Protein
It is crucial in your diet for making hair strong and healthy. If you are not consuming enough protein in your diet, your hair can become dry, brittle and weak. Extremely low protein diets can restrict hair growth and increase hair loss.
What to eat ?
Choose chicken, turkey, fish, dairy products and eggs as excellent sources of protein. For vegetarians legumes and nuts.

Iron
It an important mineral for hair and too little iron is a major cause of hair loss. you may experience anaemia.

Red meat, chicken and fish provide iron with a high bioavailability, meaning the iron is readily available to the body. Vegetarians can raise their iron stores by including lentils, spinach and other leafy green vegetables such as broccoli, kale and salad greens.

Vitamin C
It aids the absorption of iron so foods high in vitamin C are good to eat in conjunction with iron-rich foods. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant so is used readily by the body.

Blachcurrents, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen which strengthens the capillaries that supply the hair shafts.

Fortified cereals and wholegrains are a good source of zinc along with oysters, beef and eggs.
