The virtues of cashews

Although it is less rich in calcium and fiber than almonds, cashews get a good reputation among nutritionists thanks to its mono-unsaturated fats, that is to say, beneficial for health. Clinical studies encourage a point consumption of these oleaginous fruits which are in good place to reduce the cardiovascular risks and of type 2 diabetes. It is of course necessary to obtain them in an organic grocer preferably, without salt and dry roasted and to turn away from those that are mixed with palm oil. Note that their copper, phosphorus and iron content is a very good antioxidant to protect and defend the body and thus fight against the effects of aging. Their magnesium is perfect for fighting mood swings or barbells. So, do not miss out on it: in the morning in a yoghurt or a muesli, at the four o'clock break with your apple! Written by David

Feng-Shui cuisine

It must be assumed that any food prepared in a kitchen will be invested with the energy that prevails, so always make sure that your food room is always clean. Get rid of all your outdated products lying in the bottom of your closets or your fridge because the freshness of the dishes they contain will be an important vector for the health of your home. Another important point is that the sink and your cooking plates must not cohabit next to each other because the energies of water and fire are very opposite and can create disharmony in your home: you can always arrange a separation with wood (e.g. utensils) or a green plant. Also avoid leaving sharp material because Feng-Shui is not very customer of all these forms angular or sharp. On the other hand, if the worktop is facing the door, turning the back on visitors does not propagate a climate of invitation, so you can place a mirror to cancel this effect or a sparkling casserole. Finally, a good light is a sign of good health and good mood, so be sure to make it clear and relaxing. Written by David

Honey makes even more beautiful

A spoon of honey a day brings to the body everything it needs. It is a very good antioxidant that contains a wealth of vitamins, enzymes and minerals vital to cleanse the body of toxins. But honey can also be used on the skin as a cleanser, a scrub or a treatment against acne. To concoct a hydrating mask, you will need raw honey (that is to say unprocessed, unpasteurized). You will spread it on your dry and clean skin and let it rest for a quarter of an hour. To make a scrub, you will take a spoon of baking soda + a spoon of honey and you rub this mixture on your wet face. So much for the little exfoliating potion. For the treatment against acne, you will only have to pour a few drops of honey on the affected areas and you will let operate for about 10 minutes. Written by David

Kitchen mistakes not to repeat

If you have to simmer a piece of beef for at least two hours, avoid raising the cooking temperature in order to go faster: your meat will become harsh and your sauce will look like an indigestible bizarre syrup, so be careful! For those who rinse their pasta under cold water after cooking, you greatly reduce the flavor of yours, especially if you had prepared in a vegetable broth: once your pasta is cooked, drain the cooking water and do not touch anything (today the pasta making mode makes them unbeatable for the most part). Never season a salad too soon: prepare your dressing while lettuce leaves are rinsed and wrung out; avoid mixing before serving otherwise your leaves will soften and your composition will not be very appetizing...

The desserts of our childhood

As far back as we can remember, the images of our sweet childhood remind us again of the warmth of cake sharing, recorded by our taste buds for eternity. We each have our little Proust madeleine, be it rice pudding, chocolate mousse or tarte tatin. And if you were trying today a regressive recipe wish to please you? As far as we are concerned, at, we will choose chocolate fondant. We remind you the fundamentals: in a saucepan over low heat, put butter and chocolate until they bind in a promising whole. Add small amounts of sugar and whole eggs and then sifted flour. Finally, in a greased container pours and let cook an hour or a little less if you like a heart well run. And here it is sometimes so simple to return to childhood... Written by David

Zen through fish

A study published recently has shown that consuming more fish and nuts, rich in omega 3, would make it less aggressive. The French researcher who coordinated the study in question argues for these polyunsaturated acids that allow the brain to function much more fluidly. Dieticians and doctors believe that the population is generally deficient in omega-3 and consumes far too much omega-6, present in processed fatty products. Without going as far as to do intense cures of food supplements, specialists remind us that we must include in our consumption habits fish, nuts and canola oil or nuts. This is what was on the menu of study participants taking omega-3 capsules. Results followed that confirmed a significant decrease in their aggression, compared to another placebo group.

A good breakfast

A healthy breakfast is the one that will provide enough nutrition to spend all morning without having to nibble. For this, it is essential to favor a contribution of protein, fat and fiber. Sugar is OK, but not enough. Moderately sweet organic muesli are recommended (such as rye, buckwheat, oats) provided they are unrefined. Thanks to their fibers, they swell in the stomach, giving us a feeling of fullness while they regulate the level of fat and sugar in the blood. Opt for wholegrain bread, always richer in fiber and accompany it all with dried fruits, or a banana: they are good appetite suppressants made of antioxidants rich in fibers, too. Be aware that if you are a fan of coffee, roasted cereals are recommended because they are less aggressive on the digestive plan, as rooibos tea, by the way. Written by David

In addition, it is a source of vitamin A, recommended for moisturizing hair and skin. Its seeds dilate the blood vessels, which lowers high blood pressure while preventing cardiovascular disease. We could continue to list its healing properties for a long time, come on, a little last: it is zero in cholesterol because ultra-low in calories, count about thirty per 100 grams; so really recommended for diets because it gives a feeling of satiety due to its profusion of water.
