Roast chicken with balsamic roast fennel, quinoa and pomegranate salad

This is a yummy and relatively simple dinner that you can just leave in the oven to cook itself!

I sliced two medium fennel bulbs and around 6 shallots (into rings), then drizzled with balsamic vinegar, a little olive oil and herbs/spices to taste (I used salt, black pepper and mixed herbs), along with some minced garlic. 53 more words

男人之寶,男人滋補。(中年爸爸必讀)

各位開始/已經踏入中年的爸爸們,聽著。

如果炯叔叔說有一種水果吃了之後可以有效的減低心臟病、結直腸癌、前列腺癌的風險,你有沒有興趣?

有?無?可能?看看?

好!哪炯叔叔再問你們。

如果我說吃了這水果後,可以讓你們「更有雄風更堅挺」呢?

有興趣了吧?!

我相信很多爸爸馬上會說有!有!有!有!有!

但有沒有那麼神奇的水果呀?

有!就是石榴(Pomegranate)!老外叫它做”Super fruit”!

石榴有什麼好處?多咯!

1)預防心臟病 - 石榴裡有一種成份叫安石榴苷(punicalagin),是一種抗氧化劑(antioxidant),可以降低膽固醇,降血壓,減低動脈阻塞,增加心腦血管的彈性,對於預防心臟病很很大的幫助。

以色列的Rambam Medical Center 的研究指出,一批有動脈阻塞的病人每一天給他們飲一安士(ounce)的石榴汁飲一年後,不單止他們的血壓下降12%,他們的動脈粥狀硬塊(atherosclerotic plaque)也大大降低30%。在實驗裡,那些沒有飲石榴汁的病人,他們的動脈粥狀硬塊反過來增加了9%。

2)壓制癌細胞 – 加州大學河濱分校(University of California at Riverside)有研究指出, 石榴裡的flavones, phenylpropanoids, hydrobenzoic acids and conjugated fatty acids可以預防前列腺癌或延緩增長(metastasizing),甚至有機會把癌細胞殺死。另外,也有研究指出,石榴可以降低結直腸癌和乳癌的風險。 30 more words
