5 Surprisingly Healthy Meals That You Can Be Thankful For

Posted Thursday 26 November 2020 08:00 by in Express Pharmacy by Harman Bhamra

Finding delicious healthy meals isn’t always easy - our brains are forever longing for the foods our bodies could really do without. But, believe it or not, healthy meals are both delicious and accessible once you know where to look! This guide will take you through five surprisingly healthy meals that you can be thankful for, all year round.

5 Surprisingly Healthy Foods

1. Whole Grain Pasta

Pasta comes in many forms. You have spaghetti, ravioli, tortellini, penne, fettuccine, macaroni, and orzo to name a few. Pasta made from whole grain is healthy and rich in manganese, phosphorus, selenium, copper, and fibre. It’s also low in calories. The fibre in whole-grain pasta helps promote better digestion and gastrointestinal health.

Pasta won’t be complete without its toppings. To make your pasta even healthier, consider topping your pasta dishes with guilt-free alternatives like lemon, basil, salmon, spinach, avocado, tomatoes, kale, or feta.

As much as possible, stay away from cream-based sauces and cheeses as these toppings are usually high in fat and calories.

2. Red meat

Despite the controversy, red meat can actually be very healthy and nutritious in moderation. No, we are not talking about prime ribs and hamburgers here. We are talking about organic red meat from grass-fed livestock --- the right kind of red meat.

Red meat is loaded with vitamins and minerals. For example, a 100-gram portion of raw ground beef that contains 10% fat is packed with:

  • Zinc (32% of RDA)
  • Vitamin B3 (25% of RDA)
  • High-quality iron which is absorbed faster than plant-based alternatives (12% RDA)
  • Vitamin B6 (18% RDA)
  • Vitamin B12 (37% RDA)
  • Selenium (24% RDA)
  • Traces of other vitamins and minerals
  • 20g of high-quality protein
  • 10g of fat
  • Omega-3s
  • Vitamin A
  • Fatty acid CLA
  • Vitamin E

Below are some tips to make sure that your red meat stays healthy after cooking:

  • Use gentle cooking methods like steaming and stewing. Avoid grilling and frying as much as possible.
  • Never expose your meat to the flame.
  • Minimise cooking in high heat. If you must cook in high heat, flip your meat regularly to prevent burning.
  • Avoid charred or smoked meat. If burnt, remove the charred pieces.

3. Red Wine

Red wine, when taken in moderation, can help reduce your risks of developing heart attacks and coronary artery diseases. Red wine is known to contain antioxidants which are believed to help increase the levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or good cholesterol in the body.

The key here is drinking red wine in moderation as too much alcohol in the body may lead to:

  • Heart failure
  • High blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Liver diseases
  • Pancreas diseases
  • Weight gain

4. Popcorn

Popcorn is rich in dietary fibre without packing too many calories --- qualifying it as a healthy snack. Remember that popcorn is a whole grain product which helps lower your risks of diabetes and heart disease. Furthermore, popcorn also contains polyphenols --- antioxidants that promote better blood circulation and help reduce your risks of developing certain types of cancer.

The secret to making popcorn healthy is going easy on salt, sugar and butter. Stick to air-popped popcorn at home. Avoid microwave popcorns as you don’t have control on the amount of salt, oil, and butter in these.

5. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids which protect your cells. Flavonoids are also known to improve blood circulation to your heart and brain --- reducing your risks of heart disease. Stick to dark chocolates because they contain the most flavonoids and the least amount of sugar.

While the foods listed in this guide may benefit your body in one way or another, remember to eat or drink in moderation.

Learning From COVID-19: The Best Products for Safety and Hygiene

Posted Saturday 14 November 2020 10:00 by in Express Pharmacy by Harman Bhamra

By now it’s clear that Covid-19 is here to stay until we have developed a vaccine to completely eradicate it. The virus has infected millions across the globe but, as daunting as it may seem, we have to learn how to live safely with the virus circulating.

This guide will take you through the best safety and hygiene products that will contribute to keeping virus transmission rates as low as possible.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Covid-19

Personal protective equipment (PPE) protects the user against health and safety risks. There are several types of PPE available which include:

  • Protective aprons and overalls
  • Safety boots or shoes
  • Gloves
  • Goggles and safety glasses
  • Earpieces and earmuffs
  • Masks and respirators

In the case of Covid-19, commonly-used PPE are gloves, goggles, and masks.

Face coverings, masks and respirators

Covid-19 is primarily transmitted through tiny droplets produced when you cough or sneeze. Because of this, face coverings, masks, and respirators are important defences against the virus.

Face coverings

Your face covering can be single-use or reusable and must entirely cover the nose and mouth. In the UK, places, where face coverings are required, include:

  • Public transport
  • Private hire vehicles and taxis
  • Shops and supermarkets
  • Shopping centres
  • Bars, restaurants, cafes, and pubs (when not seated)
  • Theatres
  • Places of worship
  • Community centres, etc.

Some exceptions include:

  • Children below 11 years old
  • People who can’t wear a face-covering because of disability or illness
  • Where wearing a face covering will cause you severe distress

For more information about face coverings, consult this guide.

Masks and respirators

Surgical face masks and respirators are mainly intended for health care workers who are constantly exposed to the virus. However, they are a cheap alternative to cloth masks that can be bought in bulk for the public.

Practising good hand hygiene

According to the World Health Organization, practising proper hand hygiene is one of the best ways to protect yourself and others from the virus. It is recommended to wash your hands thoroughly and regularly with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, you can use instant hand sanitiser with at least 60% rubbing alcohol.

Practice proper coughing etiquette

Covid-19 is mainly spread through coughing and sneezing. To help prevent its spread, you are encouraged to follow proper coughing etiquette both at home and in public. Here’s what to do:

  • When you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue
  • Dispose of the used tissue in the bin as soon as possible
  • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your elbow
  • Avoid sneezing or coughing in your hands

After coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose, wash your hands immediately with soap and water. Once again, may use a hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not readily available.

Disinfecting your home

Be proactive in protecting your home against Covid-19. Use the following list to get started:

Soap – It is highly recommended that you clean surfaces with soap first to reduce the number of germs, impurities, and dirt on the surface.

Disinfectant – after cleaning with soap and water, disinfect surfaces with approved household disinfectant.

Goggles – goggles or safety glasses are highly recommended to protect your eyes from any splashes.

Things to remember when disinfecting your home

  • Always wear protection
  • Make sure there is enough ventilation
  • Don’t use more than the recommended amount on the label
  • Avoid mixing chemical products
  • Store hazardous chemicals away from pets and children
