Foods with more fat than a stick of butter, more dishes than you think

Foods with more fat than a stick of butter

The idea of ​​eating a stick of butter shakes you: who would think such a thing! Few nutrients and lots of fat. But many of the dishes you eat cheese or fried covered would be the equivalent of eating a whole stick of butter, which consists of 92 grams of fat .

The daily fat recommendation is 20 to 35% of calories. If your diet consists of 2,000 calories daily, that means you can consume 44 to 78 grams of fat per day and keep your weight. But fatty foods and lack of nutritional value are everywhere and temptation is great. Know what you eat in some restaurants which translates into more fat than a stick of butter.

Fried fish
The fish listed in most of the recommendations for healthy eating, but that does not mean any fish in any method of cooking. The option of 'fish and chips' in the restaurant Applebee's, pieces of fish and chips, does not sound healthy, but it's amazing that consists of 138 grams of fat, like eating a bar and a half of butter and equivalent of the fat portion of three days.

Salads misleading
Salads are healthy, right? Lettuce and tomato are diminished if filled with bacon, fried chicken, tortillas, creamy dressings, croutons, cheese and eggs.

The salad ' Crispy Chicken Salad "IHOP has fried chicken, bacon, two kinds of cheese and a boiled egg, comes with garlic bread and add about 95 grams of fat. At Applebee's is the ' Oriental Chicken Salad ', whose problem is the dressing. The combination of vinegar, chicken, almonds and noodles adds about 41 grams of fat, but with dressing the sum rises to 99 grams of fat.

Burgers are exaggerated
Considering the size, the companions, the cooking method and bread, burgers can be part of a diet. But the problem today is the size of the burgers. A portion of meat is generally considered three ounces, as the size of a stack of cards. You can control the serving when you prepare the meat yourself, but you never see a three-ounce burger on a menu.

The average restaurant size ranges from ¼ to 1/3 of a pound, many consist of bacon, cheese and mayonnaise, which can accumulate up to 92 grams of fat, like a stick of butter.

Burgers that exaggerate the ingredients
Hamburgers, pizza, burgers and quesadillas, burgers instead of bread are donuts ... the possibilities for a more greasy oily stuff are still endless. As in the salad, the ingredients added to the burgers can make all the difference, especially when fried.

Shakes
Many shakes and smoothies can be healthy, but they can also contain hidden sugars and fats. A chocolate milk and peanut butter Cold Stone Creamery containing about 131 grams of fat - the equivalent of 68 strips of bacon.

Meals of fried chicken
The fried chicken is delicious and there is no doubt. To make a plate of fried chicken less harmful to your health, try to pair it with vegetables, eat white meat and remove the crisp skin. Also watch your portions. A meal of three pieces of fried chicken with a biscuit and a full - as combos in fast food restaurants - may amount to 108 grams of fat.

Quesadillas
All that cheese, sour cream and guacamole can be translated into many grams of fat. Other ingredients such as fried chicken could be fried. Tortillas are usually covered in butter to give them a golden appearance. If you want a quesadilla, better opt for an appetizer portion.
The chicken quesadilla from Ruby Tuesday's sounds very innocent, despite his peppers and grilled onions, consists of 95 grams of fat.

10 bad habits when cooking

10 bad habits when cooking.

You may have some bad habits in the kitchen of which you are unaware. Some might prevent the dishes come out perfect, while others may put your health at risk. These are some bad habits you should consider breaking.

1. Heat oil until it smokes. Many recipes begin with heating the oil in the pan. Usually takes to heat the stove, pour the oil and wait. But when the oil reaches smoking taste changes. And if it overheats the oil several times loses its antioxidant benefits and is harmful compounds. The oil becomes bright when it is ready, do not wait for smoke free.

2. Stir the food too. It is tempting to remove food constantly to prevent burning, but you can not do too much because it avoids the browned, what brings out the flavor by allowing the food to stay on a hot surface. When you remove too much food loses its structure and becomes pasty. Resist the temptation to constantly stir unless the recipe calls for it.
bad habits when cooking
3. Overfill the pot. Cooking requires patience and sometimes think that filling the pot or pan of ingredients will cook faster. But maybe not, you could end up with delays and pasty food. If you want to skip the overfill the pan will cause steam crunchy and not the result you need. Same goes with meat, when you include too low temperature of the pan very quickly, which can cause sticking, among other problems. It is best to cook in batches, will be worth the extra time.

4. You do not give rest to your meal.'re Hungry and eager to eat the steak you just remove the grill. But it is better to let meat 'rest' before use. This way the juices redistribute through the meat and get more juicy meat. If you cut too soon the juice stays in the chopper and not in the flesh. Let rest for about five small cuts or 10 minutes and larger roasts like a turkey, about 20 minutes.

5. Rinse the meat before cooking. Rinsing the meat in your sink could remove the slime from the meat, but could contaminate your sink with bacteria that could potentially cause foodborne illness. Best removes excess undesirable residues.

6. Use nonstick pans over high heat. High temperatures can cause the non-stick pans release coverage PFC, perfluorocarbon, in the form of gases. PFCs are linked to liver damage and developmental problems. Check your pan to see the temperatures recommended by the manufacturer.

7. Using metal utensils on nonstick pans. Using metal utensils on nonstick pans is not recommended because you can scratch the surface of the pan and possibly ingesting PFCs. Use wooden or silicone.

8. Mix hot liquids without removing the cap from the blender. Most blenders have a removable cap on its top. When hot liquid mix removes the cap because the vapor pressure could create content that will make the plug ejected and with it a big mess in your kitchen. Better remove the cap and cover the hole with a towel to prevent mess.

9. Use glass containers in the broil. Pyrex brand is a favorite for cooking, but if you use the oven rack is better to use a metal container. The Pyrex are not designed for high temperatures of the grid. If overheat could break.

10. Over mix. When you mix baking sheet on the ground. When exaggerate the mixture formed in the gluten flour making baked goods tougher. Make sure that the dough is smooth.

¿White sugar or brown sugar? Which are the differences

¿White sugar or brown sugar? Which are the differences

At the word sugar quickly think of fine white grains ... the result of a refining process of sugar cane. But what actually happens?

The sugar used to sweeten begins as plant juice extract containing the highest amount of sugar: cane and beet sugar, which account for 60% of world sugar production. The juice then goes through a long process where it is purified and filtered, then boiled and crystallized. The crystallization process produces a liquid called molasses. To separate the liquid crystals, sugar is placed in a centrifuge.

The product is raw sugar, with a light brown, which is refined again for clarification using chemicals to lighten the color. At this point you have fine white sugar, granulated most common variety. Although far removed from their natural way, is still more natural than artificial sweeteners aspartame made in the laboratory.

In the process of granulated sugar, many other types of sugar are made. First, is the byproduct of molasses, ideal for baking, followed by other varieties from light brown sugar to the darkest.

Learn about the varieties of sugar available:

Granulated Sugar

+ Best use: For baking and sweetening beverages. Sprinkle coarse sugar in baked goods before placing them in the oven. The finest variety is ideal to sweeten cocktails and make meringue or other foods that require rapid dissolution.

BROWN SUGAR

The brown sugar is basically refined white sugar with added molasses. This sugar has a high moisture content and is prone to empelotarse. Available in light brown sugar (3.5% molasses) or dark (6.5% molasses).

+ Best use: Bake. The chocolate chip cookies are better with brown sugar because the moisture helps to be watered and golden. But do not want to use in a recipe that can be very heavy, like a pie.

The types of raw sugar include Demerara, Turbinado and Muscovado, which has the darkest color, the higher moisture content and stronger molasses flavor.

Why Swiss cheese has holes?

Why Swiss cheese has holes?

No, the little holes in Swiss cheese are not the product mischievous mice. The reason for the holes in Swiss cheese, called eyes in the world of cheese, is more scientific.

The proper name is Emmentaler Swiss cheese and this gets its distinctive appearance and flavor thanks to the bacteria that turns milk into cheese. All cheeses contain bacteria that help them develop into edible products, but the bacteria is not the same for all classes.

To make Swiss cheese, cultures of the bacterium S. thermophilus, Lactobacillus and P. shermani. shermani are mixed with cow's milk. The bacteria helps create cheese curds, which are soaked in brine and pressed into cheese molds. The cheese is then stored in 72 to 80 degrees F and left to mature.
http://pubpages.unh.edu/~rde26/Images/swiss-cheese.jpg

At this point is when the bacteria really works. Their job is to free lactic acid and other bacteria, a gas-consuming. This bacterium, P. shermani, releases carbon dioxide when consumed lactic acid and forms bubbles. The bubbles do not disappear, pockets are formed in air resulting in the hole in the Swiss cheese.

The size of the holes can be controlled by the creators of cheese through the acidity, temperature and time of maturity, making it possible to have Swiss cheese "Baby" option and regular.

FRIENDLY BACTERIA

"Probiotics are" good "bacteria, which have a positive impact on health. We tend to think that bacteria only cause disease, but more than 100 cultures of bacteria on the contrary, benefit the organism" says Shekhar Challa, president of Kansas Medical Clinic, author of Success "Probiotics for Dummies".

Since about 80% of the immune system reside in the intestine, keep in balance the intestinal flora is very important. In fact, Rushda Mumtaz, MD, a gastroenterologist at St. Luke's Medical Center, notes that "disturbances in the intestinal barrier, due to poor nutrition and / or excessive medication, among other factors, trigger inflammatory processes that may contribute to development of allergies and other intestinal diseases. "

The intake of probiotics has been proven in some studies, positive effects to re-colonize the good bacteria when exposed to antibiotics and stomach problems like diarrhea. In this regard, Challa indicates that "women may benefit even more than men, because probiotics can help prevent and / or improve urinary tract infections that tend to attack more women than males."

FUNCTIONAL FOODS

 There are many types of bacteria, among the most recommended by experts are the cultures of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium - they must appear first in the ingredients of the supplement you decide to purchase.

Certain brands of yogurt and foods are excellent sources of probiotics, such as:

- Fermented milk products like yogurt and kefir
- Food soy such as miso, tempeh, soy beverages and some
 - Sourdough breads

Para Challa, resulta difícil ingerir cantidad de probióticos necesarios vía To Challa, is difficult to get much needed food via probiotics, this is why, the expert recommends including a probiotic supplement containing between one and three billion units of colonies.
http://detoxplanet.webs.com/probiotics%200987.jpg
FOOD AS A COUPLE

Not just about adding to your diet foods high in probiotics, but also those that act as precursors of these bacteria. In this regard, Challa argues that pre-Probiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria that are present in the body.

So, be sure to add to your diet: bananas, onions, garlic, asparagus, flaxseed, whole grains and legumes. All of these foods, combined with those containing natural probiotics, can help you fight from stomach inflammation, colds and even acne.
This is where a yogurt with a banana can be a remedy for your stomach and your skin.

The worst iPad apps for cooking

The worst iPad applications for cooking

There are of them controls the cooking of eggs until they are told what food is left in the refrigerator

If the you use your tablet or smartphone for everything, including cooking, here are a selection of the best and worst applications for use between pans and vegetables, prepared by Joy Planet magazine.

Grocery Gadget – Shopping list
They say the idea is not bad. Arm your shopping list, separated by the budget, paying attention to the coupons. The detail is that it is very complex, it has a good design and is made primarily for use only in USA.

Beer timer
Sounds the perfect app. It specify what beer you bought, divide it by category and presentation. Also alerts you when your beer is already chilled in the refrigerator. However, the problem is that the application asks you to drink is at 20 ° C when put in the freezer. It is very rigorous.
http://pdx.eater.com/uploads/ipadpost4-thumb.jpg
Egg timer for the PRO
It's a free timer that calculates you just enough time to boil eggs. Works for Android tablet. Once the egg is in the water, the time is set taking into account the desired point, the temperature and to the diameter of the eggs. The latter complicates things.

Meat cooking reference
If you want a guide to cooking times for their meat, this could be. However, "the cuts are American cooking methods are limited and time is calculated by piece, not by weight." It is full of advertising and not very useful.

Chocolates!
