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.

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.

About Raw Creations®, LLC
Jason Janiak a certified Raw Foods Chef and founder of Raw Creations, set out to launch his business after he successfully healed his own allergies on a Raw foods diet. “Overcoming cravings for sweets without aggravating my allergies, I created a line of innovative Raw desserts. Our desserts are indistinguishable in taste and appearance from their baked counterparts, and receive rave reviews. Finding myself inundated with requests to make my products commercially available, I established Raw Creations.” – Jason Janiak

“What make our desserts agreeable with most everybody is the ingredients that are absent, containing no Processed Sugars, Wheat/Gluten, Corn, Dairy/Eggs, added Sodium, or Soy. In addition, they are produced in a Certified Organic facility, which is free from any of these allergens as well. Also, we extend the purity of our products through all avenues of production by using only organic soaps, cleansers, and towels as well”Jason Janiak
