Antioxidants are higher in pecans and walnuts than in berries like blueberries, blackberies, cranberries and currants. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start other chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants take up the free radicals, reducing cellular damage.

About our recipes

We try to bring you recipes that are useful for living on a tight budget with limited finances. They represent a good nutritous meal for a lower cost than you would pay at the supermarket or thay create some ingredient that you'd pay a lot more for in the shops - perhaps something that is completely out of your normal budget range.

A variety of different healthy foods

Nutrition is not what we eat but the variety of what we eat

We strive to publish recipes that do not require ingredients that are high in additives, chemicals or artificial flavours. We do not use palm oil because it is extremely high in cholesterol and saturated fats (the worst kind). We do not recomment Canola oil or blends containing canola oil - it is all Gene Modified and if the insects can't eat it maybe there's a good reason we shouldn't either. Although we do have Asian cooking recipes, we do not use MSG because many people have a bad reation to it.

This web site is a living document that is being revised and added to continuously. If there are any recipes you think should be included, send us an email and we'll be only too happy to try and include them.

While medical professionals operate with the best intentions, keep in mind the doctor is indoctrinated.
