The good junk foods

Yes, it is true that there are some good junks foods that are not only tasty but also nutritious for you. These are just some of the foods ,which can feed your taste buds and health, and their corresponding limits:

1. Chocolate – The dark stuff in chocolates contain a nutrient cocktail of cancer-fighting antioxidants, and more recently a survey from a mental institution in United Kingdom showed that chocolate significantly improved mood in 27 percent of adults.

Limit: Four 50-g bars a week

2.Peanuts – Peanuts are packed with fat, but luckily it’s the kind you should be eating. These are of the poly- and monounsaturated variety, which lower levels of bad cholesterol. Also, pecan nuts contain ellagic acid, which forces cancer cells to self-destruct.   Limit: One handful a day

3. Burgers – Flame-grilling the meaty treats boosts the conjugated linoleic acid. A study in the University of Wisconsin in the US found this handy nutrient fights off cancer.

Limit: One fast-food or three home-grilled burgers a week

4. Chips – A spud contains twice as much vitamin C per gram as an apple. Just make sure to buy those made with real potatoes. Stay away from ‘potato-flavored’ chips.

Limit: One small bag a week

5. Milkshakes – Researchers at the University of Bristol in England found drinking milk each day cut the risk of fatal diseases, like cancer and stroke, by 10 percent. Just a third of a pint is enough to make the difference.

Limit: One 500-ml shake a week

Although these foods do have some health benefits, we still need to limit ourselves but not to the point that we will deprive our cravings. The more we deprive ourselves the more we will crave..

Thank you once again my readers.. God Bless!
