Olive oil makes you feel full + Raw Curry recipe

Olive oil makes you feel full

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/03/130314124616.htm

in this article, it is saying that

————————–

Work groups at Technische Universität München (TUM) under Prof. Peter Schieberle and at the University of Vienna under Prof. Veronika Somoza studied four different edible fats and oils: Lard, butterfat, rapeseed oil and olive oil. Over a period of three months, the study participants ate 500 grams of low-fat yoghurt enriched with one of the four fats or oils every day — as a supplement to their normal diet.

“Olive oil had the biggest satiety effect,” reports Prof. Peter Schieberle, Head of the TUM Chair of Food Chemistry and Director of the German Research Center for Food Chemistry. “The olive oil group showed a higher concentration of the satiety hormone serotonin in their blood. Subjectively speaking, these participants also reported that they found the olive oil yoghurt very filling.” During the study period, no member of this group recorded an increase in their body fat percentage or their weight.

How long the feeling of satiety lasts after eating depends on a number of factors, but blood sugar level is particularly significant. The faster it falls, that is to say, the faster the somatic cells absorb glucose from the blood, the sooner the person will start to feel hungry again. In the next part of their study, the researchers investigated which of the aroma substances present in the oil are most effective at inhibiting glucose absorption.

The researchers used olive oils from Spain, Greece, Italy and Australia for their study. The research team managed to identify two substances that reduce the absorption of glucose from the blood in liver cells: Hexanal and E2-Hexenal. They also discovered that Italian olive oil contained larger amounts of the two aroma compounds.

is it awesome?

I didn’t know that. I always avoid any oil.  I was taking fat from nuts, seeds or avocados.

But it doesn’t matter any more! we can eat good quality olive oil!

So I will look around high quality olive oil. any suggestion?

Finally we started!

New Project! Smoothie Detox☆

You just need your blender, your favorite vegetables and fruits! And make it everyday. morning is the best time*

Are you ready??

This morning, I made cute smoothie!

When I woke up, it was so cold that I couldn’t get out of my bed… so I decided to put Ginger in my smoothie.

Ginger makes you warm from inside of your body.

Carrot, Apples and Ginger smoothie!

I made a face 🙂

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Research suggests that apples may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Apple peels contain ursolic acid which, in rat studies, increases skeletal muscle and brown fat, and decreases white fat, obesity, glucose intolerance, and fatty liver disease. ( from Wiki)

Let’s eat an apple everyday!

Put fruits first into the blender.

I don’t peel the skins. (Wash the skin carefully) because there are a lot of nutrients in the skin and between skin and fresh.

If there is wax on the skin you may peel the skin, though…

I put too much ginger… It was very hot. you may put half of it!

But it made me very warm.
