FoodTV Promotes Prudent Portions

With obesity rates rising, it is more important than ever that people eat healthily and take enough exercise. That is why FoodTV provide hundreds of simple and nutritious recipes, as well as demonstration videos to view online. However, when you begin to experiment and create your own dishes you shouldn’t forget the advice gained from FoodTV.

foodtvimage.jpg (400×300)

Every meal should include a variety of vegetables, carbohydrates and protein. You should also follow these tips for simple portion control:

Pasta
When cooking dried spaghetti, you should prepare a small handful for each person. Obviously this won’t work with some of the numerous varieties of pasta – a handful of penne pasta is not the same as a handful of tagliatelle.

Instead, a 230 gram serving of pasta is roughly the same size as a tennis ball. To make your pasta dishes even healthier, choose the wholegrain option.

Meat and fish
Both meat and fish are great sources of protein. However, nutritionists recommend you limit your intake of red meat, such as beef or lamb.

An average serving of meat should be about the same size as a deck of cards or a chequebook. A serving of fish – which is high in Omega 3 – should be about the same.

Vegetables
Whenever possible you should steam vegetables, as this means they will retain more of their nutrients. A 115 gram serving of cooked vegetables should be around the same size as an orange.

Dried fruit
While dried fruit will last much longer than fresh, it has around five times the calories by weight. To make sure you don’t overindulge, you should remember that a single serving of dried fruits should be about the same size as an egg or a golf ball.

Salad dressing
There is no need to add spoonfuls of dressing to add life to a salad. Instead, a drizzle of about five grams (roughly the size of your thumbnail) should be sufficient.

FoodTV provides hundreds of hours of online food-related videos, as well as easy recipesbudget cooking and drinks for all ages. Users can share recipes through the FoodTV community.

Eden Springs Launches Online Hydration Calculator

Eden Springs, the UK’s leading water cooler supplier, have just released a new hydration calculator that enables people to work out how much water they should be drinking. This online tool calculates your optimum daily water intake by taking into account a person’s gender, age, weight and exercise routine. The hydration calculator is available in the services section of the Eden Springs website.

It is commonly accepted that we all require a certain amount of water to maintain optimum health, energy and concentration. It is also reported that most people fall short of this daily requirement. What is less understood is exactly how much water we need.

Everyone is familiar with the ‘8 glasses a day’ or “7 glasses per day” arguments, but these rumours often understate our true requirements and don’t take into account the differences in a person’s age, weight and lifestyle. On the flip side, drinking too much water is not ideal either so it’s important for an individual to learn about their own requirements with some level of accuracy.

Damien Higgins, Marketing Manager at Eden Springs says “Eden Springs have released this calculator to give existing customers and website visitors a way of working out how many glasses of water they might need and it’s a reminder to us all that we should be refilling our glasses as we go about our day.”

“We’ve also just released a new range of low cost bottled water cooler rental plans, and this calculator helps people to work out how many bottles of water they might need each month for their home or office. Of course, we can also deliver additional bottles to their doorstep at short notice if they find they’re running short.”

The hydration calculator is a continuation of Eden Springs ‘Well-Being at Work’ philosophy, which encourages the consumption of water in the workplace to improve health, energy, focus and concentration.

Eden Springs is a recognised European brand and the leading supplier of bottled and plumbed-in water coolers in the UK. Based in Glasgow, they supply and service 130,000 water coolers held by more than 80,000 customers across the country.
