明天便是端午節,準備好「食住糉,睇龍舟」了嗎? 近年市面出現形形式式的端午糉,紫薯、藜麥、黑豚元貝,各種新潮口味統統都可入饌。不過,營養師提醒,紫米、黑米等有殼穀物看似健康,含較高纖維量及營養,但熱量與白糯米相若,同樣不可吃過量。有新式甜糉雖憑晶瑩外皮「大飽眼球」,吸引不少人購買「順道呃Like」。 但小小一隻已含4茶匙糖,佔每日攝取上限逾半。以鹹甜糉取代正餐,除了熱量極易超標,纖維量及其他營養亦不足,因此應「少食多滋味」,例如一家四口分享鹹甜糉各一隻,配蔬果以作平衡。

When female mosquitoes poke their proboscis through your skin so they can suck some of your blood to be later used to make eggs, they inject you with some of their saliva. This saliva helps them to drink your blood more quickly, because it contains a cocktail of anticoagulants. Once the female mosquito is full up of your blood or is disturbed, she flies away, leaving some of her saliva behind. Your body then kicks your immune system in gear as a response to the presence of this saliva. It produces various antibodies which in turn bind to the antigens in the mosquito’s saliva. This then triggers the release of histamine.

The beginning of September signals that fall is on its way, along with leaves, and... okra? The exotic medicinal and culinary vegetable (available year-round), is best to get in early fall when crops in Southern states reach their peak.

The humble cinema snack could prevent cancer and help dieters. 'Most people don't know that popcorn is a wholegrain shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer, and just a 30g serving - that's half a small box of popcorn in the cinema - is equivalent to one daily portion of brown rice or wholewheat pasta,' says Catherine Collins, chief dietician at St George's hospital in London. Popcorn also contains three times more fibre by weight than sunflower seeds, keeping you feeling fuller for longer, as well as balancing your blood sugar levels (so no mood swings or cravings for sweet snacks) and helping to lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol. It even has a dose of B vitamins to boost your energy levels. A study presented last August to the American Chemical Society suggests the real health benefits could lie more in its 'surprisingly large' polyphenol content, antioxidants thought to mop up free radicals, the potentially damaging chemicals that cause diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Just be careful of doing more harm than good by adding excess salt or sugar to your homemade version.

"Sleep deprivation in general has a number of negative consequences to the creative process and to general and mental health," she explains.
