Qué son los aceites esenciales?

Los aceites esenciales han estado presentes en todas las culturas desde hace más de mil años, son los compuestos aromáticos volátiles extraídos que se encuentran en las hojas, flores, corteza, tallos, raíces, resina, semillas de plantas o la médula de los cítricos, y son apreciados por su belleza, sabor y salud.

Desde el punto de vista científico, un aceite esencial se compone de cientos de componentes químicos, cuya combinación confiere a las plantas cualidades distintivas y propiedades curativas. Los aceites esenciales la protegen a las plantas de los depredadores u otras influencias amenazantes, y les promueven una reproducción saludable, contribuyendo a atraer a los polinizadores y a otros procesos vitales.

Why Oils?

Oils are fats that are liquid at room temperature, like the vegetable oils used in cooking.

Oils come from many different plants and from fish. Oils are NOT a food group, but they provide essential nutrients.

Commonly eaten oils: canola oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil, olive oil, safflower oil, soybean oil, and sunflower oil.

Sunflower oil

Oils used mainly as flavorings: walnut oil and sesame oil.

Walnut Oil

Foods Naturally High in Oils: nuts, olives, some fish, and avocados.

*No plant foods contain cholesterol. A few plant oils, however, including coconut oil, palm oil, and palm kernel oil, are high in saturated fats and for nutritional purposes should be considered to be solid fats.

Three to five daily servings of oils are illustrated as part of a healthy diet.
Oils are the most efficient energy nutrient you can consume. They help build healthy cell membranes and assist the nervous system in sending messages to the brain.
Oils help your intestines absorb vitamins A, D, E and K, and store them in your body fat.
Oils also assist in regulating hormones, lubricating skin and cushioning organs.

Always important, oils add taste and texture to the food you consume.

SuperFoods

Plan your diet around plant foods such as wholemeal bread, rice, pasta, vegetables, fruits and pulses. These are not only healthy choices, but also means that you are less likely to eat unhealthy foods that are high in fat and sugar.

The wide range of different nutrients (and the ways they react together) – gained from a healthy, balanced diet – that is the most beneficial to our health. There is no evidence that taking supplements, instead of eating a healthy diet, can have the same beneficial effect.

We could live healthier for longer through eating the right food, exercising and keeping a healthy weight.

Coloring your dish

In order to get the best range of natural goodness from vegetables, fruits and plant foods, you should aim to eat as many different varieties as possible.

The idea of creating a ‘rainbow’ on your plate is a good way to do this. By including more plant foods from each of the colour groups: red, orange, yellow, green, purple and white, you’ll be ensuring that you’re getting the best mix of nutrients for healthy living, every day.

Have seven servings of plant-based foods each day for a range of natural goodness. 

Variety is essential. 

Healthy Sleeping

Sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions.

Our bodies regulate sleep in much the same way that they regulate eating, drinking, and breathing. This suggests that sleep serves a similar critical role in our health and well-being.

Research shows that a number of vital tasks carried out during sleep help people stay healthy and function at their best.

While you sleep, your brain is hard at work forming the pathways necessary for learning and creating memories and new insights. Without enough sleep, you can’t focus and pay attention or respond quickly. A lack of sleep may even cause mood problems. Also, growing evidence shows that a chronic lack of sleep increases your risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovas­cular disease, and infections.

Tips to establish healthy sleep habits:

  • Keep a consistent sleep schedule. Get up at the same time every day, even on weekends or during vacations.
  • Set a bedtime that is early enough for you to get at least 7 hours of sleep.
  • Don’t go to bed unless you are sleepy.
  • If you don’t fall asleep after 20 minutes, get out of bed.
  • Establish relaxing bedtime rituals.
  • Use your bed only for sleep and sex.
  • Make your bedroom quiet and relaxing. Keep the room at a comfortable, cool temperature.
  • Limit exposure to light in the evenings.
  • Don’t eat a large meal before bedtime. If you are hungry at night, eat a light, healthy snack.
  • Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet.
  • Avoid consuming caffeine in the late afternoon or evening.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol before bedtime.
  • Reduce your fluid intake before bedtime.

PREPARATION TIME: 30 minutes.
BAKING TIME: 45 to 55 minutes.
SERVING SIZE: one 1⁄2-inch thick slice.
AMOUNT PER SERVING: 4.4 grams of carb, 3.7 grams of protein.
NUMBER OF SERVINGS: 24

Ingredients:

12 Oz. soft cream cheese
5 Eggs
1 Cup mashed medium size bananas
1/4 Cup soy protein powder
1/3 cup whole whey flour
1 Cup whole almond meal
1 Cup unprocessed wheat bran
1 Teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 Teaspoons honey
2 Teaspoons lemon peel

Preheat oven to 325 ̊F. Lightly butter three miniloaf pans (use non- stick pans made of heavy-gauge metal).

Optional: For easy cleanup and removal, cut strips of waxed paper to fit in the bottoms of the pans and allow them to hang over the edge by an inch or two.

Put cream cheese and two eggs in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat with a flat beater until smooth, thick, and fluffy. Be sure to eliminate all cream cheese lumps. Add the remaining eggs, one at a time, beating briefly after each addition. Add the next seven ingredients and beat at slow speed. Add the wheat bran and nuts, blending at low speed.

Spoon the batter into the pans.

Bake the banana bread for about 45 to 55 minutes or until done.
