#BalanceforBetter : Women’s Health and Food

It’s all about checks and balances. One small ripple can turn into a giant wave.

In keeping with the theme for International Women’s Day on March 8th #BalanceforBetter,  we encourage all women to pay special attention to what they eat and strive to consume essential vitamins and minerals that are  key for maintaining and protecting women’s health and finding that balance for better.

Seafood Lovers!

This is your time! Those following a pescatarian diet or just love food of  the sea..

Seafood has two important omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, more commonly called EPA and DHA. These fatty acids may affect:

  • Risk for heart disease
  • Risk for preterm birth (also called premature birth)
  • Growth and development in unborn babies and breastfed infants

Fish also contains other important nutrients, such as selenium. Selenium is important for making many body processes work correctly, and is used for abnormal pap smears, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), mood disorders, arsenic poisoning, preventing miscarriage and much more.

Be Fibre Rich!

Fiber helps lower the risk for diseases that affect many women, such as heart disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, and colon cancer. It also helps you feel full, so it can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight. Include fiber-rich foods, including beans, berries, and dark green leafy vegetables into your daily routine!


Edamame beans are rich in protein and provide all the essential amino acids your body needs. In addition, they are rich in fibre, antioxidants and vitamin K and may reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Women also tend to be at higher risk for osteoporosis as they get older. Eating approximately 40 grams per day of soy protein from foods such as edamame may help increase your bone density, and lower your risk for osteoporosis, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. A study published in the “Journal of Clinical Densitometry” in 2011 found that compounds in soy called isoflavones may help limit bone loss in postmenopausal women.

Thai Red Curry

Curry Lovers!

Apart from being a go- to for spicy lovers, it is hailed as a superfood across the world.  Curry has been shown in studies to have amazing health benefits such as increasing metabolism, relieving arthritis pain and helping to combat heart disease. Ingredients such as Tumeric, Ginger and Garlic and just a few of the powerful herbs and spices that have strong anti-bacterial and body enhancing properties.


Turmeric is a spice which gives curry its yellow colour. Its main active ingredient is called curcumin which is a very powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant. Additionally, turmeric helps improve metabolic function and increase mental processes.


Ginger could act as an effective pain reliever from the agony of arthritis. The spice already comes as a supplement called Zinaxin.

it is also a traditional cold remedy and contains the antioxidants gingerol, shagaol, and zingerone. It is the zingerone that reacts with the free radicals that can cause tissue damage and joint inflammation, and so helps to reduce the pain of arthritis.


Garlic has been found to have a wide range of health benefits, from protecting the heart by lowering cholesterol to helping to purify the blood.

It also contains allicin, which is a potent anti-cancer agent, and it increases protection from stomach cancer by promoting the production of protective enzymes in the stomach.

Keto diet : The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet.It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

Flexitarian diet : The Flexitarian Diet is a style of eating that encourages mostly plant-based foods while allowing meat and other animal products in moderation.The word flexitarian is simply the combination of the two words flexible and vegetarian, while a diet is simply a way of life.

Mediterranean diet : The Mediterranean Diet is based on the region’s traditional fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seafood, olive oil, and dairy—with perhaps a glass or two of red wine. It’s about more than just eating fresh, wholesome food. Daily physical activity and sharing meals with others are vital elements of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid.
