It is an international health campaign organized by Monday Campaigns Inc. in association with the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future that encourages people to improve their [b]health[/b] and the health of the planet. Since[b] eating less meat[/b] per week has benefits for you and if you are aware of the implications of [b]meat[/b] [b]production[/b] in the world, taking part in [b]Meatless[/b] [b]Monday[/b] will be a good start to take action to help the planet. There is research on[b] semi-vegetarian meal plans[/b] that have shown they have benefits like lower risk of type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer, lower blood pressure, and a higher-quality diet. Therefore, joining [b]Meatless[/b] [b]Monday[/b] could be a great idea if you want to follow a semi-vegetarian diet without completely giving up on meat. Here are 4 good reasons to do it. To Lower Your Saturated Fats Intake [b]Red[/b] [b]meat[/b] is rich in fats, especially saturated ones, which could lead to high levels of cholesterol in the blood, according to Mexico’s Federal Office for the Consumer (Profeco). High cholesterol, in turn, can cause heart diseases. To Prevent Fatigue or Dehydration Eating too much [b]red[/b] [b]meat[/b] or [b]processed[/b] [b]meat[/b] can cause secondary effects like [b]dehydration[/b] since the body requires a lot of water to digest it. On the other hand, digesting meals that are rich in meat does not only divert energy from the brain and cause [b]fatigue[/b], but some types of meat, like beef and turkey, are also rich in tryptophan, an amino acid that is linked to melatonin production, which can cause drowsiness or regulate the sleeping cycle. To Lower the Risk of Heart Diseases According to the systematic analysis of 20 studies from 2010 that assessed the link between eating red and processed meat and the risk of incident cardiovascular disease, experts found that eating processed meat, but not red meat, seemed to increase the [b]risk of heart disease[/b] by 42%. To Prevent Weight Gain [b]Eating[/b] [b]meat[/b] has several benefits that can lead to a healthier weight and lifestyle, including increasing appetite, greater muscle mass retention, and speeding up metabolism. However, several studies have linked [b]obesity[/b] to eating more than the recommended maximum of red and processed meat since, when it is not properly managed, the high consumption of red and processed meat can also lead to a higher calorie intake in general. You don’t have to completely[b] give up on meat[/b]. As a matter of fact, some health experts recommend a daily intake of 2.9 ounces of lean meat to keep a healthy diet. It is a matter of eating these products in moderation, something you can easily do on a [b]Meatless[/b] [b]Monday[/b], or the day of your choice.

Leer en españolPopcorn can be part of a well-balanced diet if you know how to prepare it since it contains important nutrients and offers a wide variety of health benefits. Popcorn is a special kind of corn that explodes when exposed to heat. This happens because the core of each kernel contains a small amount of water that expands when heated and makes the kernel pop.While it may not seem like so because it is a very popular snack, popcorn is a whole food, which makes it high in several nutrients and, according to different studies, there is a link between eating whole grains and health benefits like reduced inflammation and less risk of heart disease.A serving of 3.5 ounces of popcorn contains the next nutrients:Vitamin B1 (thiamine): 7% of the DRIVitamin B3 (niacin): 12% of the DRIVitamin B6 (pyridoxine): 8% of the DRIIron: 18% of the DRIMagnesium: 36% of the DRIPhosphorous: 36% of the DRIPotassium: 9% of the DRIZinc: 21% of the DRICopper: 13% of the DRIManganese: 56% of the DRIThe previous comes with a total of 387 calories, 0.4 ounces of protein, 2.7 ounces of carbohydrates, 0.1 ounces of fat, and 0.5 ounces of fiber, a high amount that makes this portion of popcorn one of the best sources of fiber in the world. There are many ways to make popcorn and perhaps the most popular version is the prepacked one that can be cooked in the microwave. However, most microwave bags are coated with a chemical substance called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which has been linked to multiple health conditions.To make healthy popcorn, it is best to cook the kernels on the stove with only 3 tablespoons of oil, which can be either olive or coconut oil. This amount of oil will be enough to prepare half a cup of popcorn kernels and you will only need one teaspoon of salt for seasoning. If you want extra health benefits, you can sprinkle popcorn with nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast has a nutty and cheesy flavor and contains several important nutrients including protein, fiber, vitamins B, and different minerals.Translated by Miranda Perea
