Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Pasta
INGREDIENTS PASTA 2 red bell peppers 2-3 Tbsp olive oil 2 shallots, finely chopped 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped Sea salt and ground black pepper 1.5 cups Unsweetened Original Almond Breeze Almond Milk 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast 1.5 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder (or other thickener of choice) Pinch red pepper flake (optional, for heat) 12 ounces gluten free linguini or spaghetti noodles (or other noodle of choice) FOR SERVING Vegan parmesan cheese Finely chopped fresh parsley or basil INSTRUCTIONS Heat oven to 500 degrees F and roast red peppers on a baking sheet until charred - about 25-30 minutes. Cover in foil for 10 minutes to steam, then remove (peel away) charred skin, seeds and stems. Set aside. Cook pasta according to package instructions; drain, toss in a touch of olive oil, cover with a towel and set aside. While the red peppers are roasting, bring a large skillet over medium heat and sautee onion and garlic in 2-3 Tbsp olive oil until golden brown and soft - about 4-5 minutes. Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and stir. Remove from heat and set aside. Transfer sautéed shallot and garlic to blender with roasted peppers, almond milk, red pepper flake, nutritional yeast and cornstarch. Season with desired amount of salt, pepper and red pepper flake. Blend until creamy and smooth, taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more salt and pepper or nutritional yeast for flavor. You want the flavor to be pretty robust and strong since the noodles don't have much flavor - so be generous with your seasonings. Once blended, place sauce back in the skillet over medium heat to thicken. Once it reaches a simmer, reduce heat to low and continue simmering. Once sauce is thickened to desired consistency (see photo), add noodles. However, before tossing add a touch more olive oil, salt and pepper to the un-tossed noodles for added flavor. Then, toss to coat. Serve with (generous amounts of) vegan parmesan, red pepper flake and fresh chopped parsley or basil.

If You Want To Be Healthier, Change Your Taste Buds!
Online Supermarket Dubai When we consume highly processed foods, we are training ourselves to eat certain foods that are not fueling our body with proper nutrition. When we are hooked on such foods, our taste buds become “desensitized” and we often lose the appreciation for natural flavors found in whole foods. For example, the fruit is naturally sweet, but individuals often lose their appreciation for this more natural, subtle fruit sweetness because they are looking for that ‘hyper sweet’ taste they find in processed, refined, artificial foods. Did you know that it can take between 10 to 14 days to change the way you taste food? Simple changes to your daily diet can help you change your taste buds and in turn, make you consume healthier and more wholesome foods. The fad temporary diets that are constantly being promoted to you on the Internet are not sustainable and will not help you in the long run. Opt for a lifestyle that is enjoyable, healthy and sustainable. Below are a few tips that can help you develop a new baseline for different flavours to enjoy healthier foods, and modify your palate: When you crave sugar, try eating foods with contrasting flavor, like citrus fruits (sour/bitter orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit) or mint. Reduce salt – gradually taper the amount of added salt you use. Regularly salted foods will start tasting too salty. Flavour your water. Add cucumber, lemon, or mint to plain water to make it more palatable if you have a sweet tooth. Rather than eliminating all desserts, allow yourself one or two squares of dark chocolate or healthier dessert options to help satisfy sweet cravings. Mix your own yoghurt. Rather than buying sugary yoghurt at the grocery store, opt for plain and add fresh fruit instead. Spices! Cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg can be great sugar alternatives in oatmeal, coffee, and tea by tricking your palate into “thinking” you’re eating something sweet. The more you reduced refined sugar in your diet, the less you will crave it! Fresh or dried herbs! Thyme, rosemary, basil, fennel are great ingredients to add while cooking to enhance the flavor of your meals. Cut your sugary coffee intake in half (or more). If sweetened coffee drinks are your thing, ask the barista to reduce the pumps of syrup by half. Your palate will adjust just after a few orders! Instead of adding sugar, roast, grill or bake vegetables and fruits to caramelize the natural sugars and increase the sweet flavor.
Why Is Electrolyte Water Essential for the Body?
We are all aware that the benefits of drinking water are very remarkable: from controlling body temperature and blood pressure to enhancing mood, memory, and productivity. But do electrolytes added to the water, increase the benefits of H2O? What are Electrolytes? When dissolved in water, electrolytes are minerals that contain an electric charge. The meals you consume and the liquids you drink, keep your body electrolytes. These minerals, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, transport via the body and use their electrical energy, which include: · Balance your body's water amount · Balance the pH level of your body · Move your cells with nutrition · Stir your cells with garbage · Regulate your nerves, your muscles, and your heart and brain · Help reconstruction of tissue damaged Electrically loaded minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium are injected into electrolyte water. Electrolyte water can sometimes be called mineral water or alkaline water. Whether you think it or not, seawater and tap water even contain different kinds of salt electrolytes. It is not recommended to drink salt water; it has a correct balance of minerals, which is essential for health promotion. Drinking water-electrolyte was specially developed with an optimal concentration of only the most advantageous electrolytes to boost hydrating and other body processes. Like sports drinks, electrolytes have been added for increased hydration but sports drinks often contain high quantities of sugar and calories. What is Electrolyte Water Up to 60% of the human adult body is comprised of water. Your body cannot execute all its vital tasks when you lose even a modest bit of this 60 percent. Electrolytes are dehydrated and control your hydration. Electrolyte levels in your blood may be too low in some circumstances, resulting in an imbalance. An electrolyte imbalance might adversely affect your health. Symptoms maybe – · Fatigue · Fast or irregular heartbeat · Numbness and tingling · Confusion · Muscle weakness and cramping · Headaches · Convulsions 1. Improves Performance During Workouts It is recommended that electrolyte-enhanced water be drunk frequently while practicing to restore the electrolytes lost in sweat. This improves the functioning of your heart, brain, muscle, and nerve system. 2. Supports Nervous System All of us can imagine sports athletes picking up sports beverages to recharge their lost electrolytes, but not only athletes have to maintain their bodies fluid and hydrated. Understanding the need for continuous moisture keeps us safe and productive in the end. Even a minor loss in moisture can result in reduced cognitive capacities, less attention and awareness, and less time to respond. Your reaction time is equal to someone with a blood level of alcohol at dehydration of 3% by .08%. 3. Protection from Heat Stroke Hot environments place you in danger from moderate heat rash to life-threatening heatstroke in a range of heat-related diseases. Your body usually handles heat by releasing it and sweating it across your skin. However, in hot temperatures, this cooling system can begin to malfunction, resulting in a dangerously high body temperature. You need to limit your heating time to avoid heat-related ailments. However, it is also essentially important to get sufficient fluids and electrolytes to keep your body cool. You can get electrolyte waters of different flavors all enriched with electrolytes and essential minerals at sites like eBay such as TrueGether. They offer timely discounts to their customers and all the products are very affordable!
