I'm sorry, but I'm not one of those kitchen experts. I hardly
know how to cook (well I can make pasta, but everybody can make that).
So as you can see, this part of my site will not be dedicated to my home-cooking, if this term exists in my case. I want to dedicate it to something that in my opinion is more important: nutrition.
More than half a year ago it was discovered that I suffer from a lack of Iron and the vitamin B12 in my blood. I'm also slightly anemic. This has caused my interest in all sides of nutrition, and I would like to share that with you.
I want to apologize from the beginning for any spelling mistakes you might find here. Hebrew is my mother tongue, not English. I've tried to avoid spelling mistakes, but I might have overlooked some. I'd appreciate your corrections (but not your flames).
Here is my first issue..... :
|A||carrots, milk, butter, eggs, spinach, oil, fish||Aids in maintenance of healthy bones and skin. Essential for vision.|
|B1 (Thiamin)||liver, fresh vegetables, bread||Vital for converting food into energy and helps maintain the nervous system|
|B2 (Riboflavin)||liver, milk, eggs, green vegetables, cheese, kidneys||Aids in converting food into energy and promotes good vision and smooth skin.|
|PP (Niacin)||fish, meat, bread||Aids in the release of energy from foods and proper nervous system functioning.|
|B6||most nourishments||Essential for energy metabolism, maintenance of all tissues, including nerve tissue. Aids in the production of hormones and the formation of red blood cells.|
|B12||only animal products, mostly liver and milk dairies||Key for blood formation and a healthy nervous system.|
|Bc (Folic Acid)||liver, fresh vegetables||Important for women of childbearing age. Essential to red blood cell formation, oxygen delivery to the tissue, and normal cell growth.|
|C||fresh fruits and vegetables, mostly tomatos||Aids in healthy cell development. Serves as an antioxidant.|
|D||fish oil, butter, eggs, sun rays.||Enhances calcium absorption and helps to build bone mass. Helps maintain blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.|
|E||most nourishments, especially dark green leaved vegetables and weat||Essential for normal growth and development. As an antioxidant, helps protect tissues (cells) against damage caused by free radicals.|
