low-carb lowdown

Much more matcha Matcha tea has made landfall in SA and is the latest must-try item (though it might be a bit of an acquired taste). It’s now widely available at coffee shops and restaurants in various forms: matcha shots, lattes, teas and even desserts. Matcha, like green tea, comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. The difference lies in its unique nutrient profile and how it’s grown. The plants are covered 20 to 30 days before harvest to avoid direct sunlight. This increases chlorophyll production, boosts the amino acid content and gives the plant a darker green colour. Unlike green tea, matcha contains the nutrients from the entire tea leaf, which means it’s higher in antioxidants and caffeine. Although further research needs to be done, studies have established it has several…

‘i’m healthy, strong & full of energy!’

“People know they’re overweight because they eat too much, but they never ask: 'Why do we eat so much?”’ On 1 January 2014, after years of countless diets and rock-bottom self-confidence, Elize Delport (57) of Nelspruit in Mpumalanga summoned the courage to weigh herself. ‘I never used to climb on a scale and I rarely looked in the mirror,’ she says. She weighed 92kg. Stepping onto that scale was the first step towards a healthier lifestyle for Elize, which, four years later, would see her 35kg lighter! Elize was 15 years old when her family moved to Holland. ‘I lived there for five years and finished high school there,’ she says. ‘They eat a lot of bread and potatoes in Europe, and when it’s cold there is a lot of comfort food.…

this month’s miracle ingredient:seaweed

Before you shiver at the thought of munching on a bit of algae, know that there are various types of seaweed that are widely consumed. Think sushi. People living in coastal villages and in many Asian countries also regularly incorporate seaweed into soups and salads. It can be eaten dried, fried or soaked, and ranges in colour from red and green to blackish-brown. Called ‘the new kale’, seaweed is packed with nutrients, just like its cruciferous namesake – maybe even more so than vegetables found above water. Here are a few of its top benefits. 1 It’s high in iodine By eating just a gram of seaweed, your daily iodine intake will be met. Seaweed granules can be added to table salt to help increase the quantity of iodine. The iodine in seaweed…

minus the carbs

For decades we’ve been told that when it comes to exercise, we need carbohydrates to perform at our best. Thousands of runners, cyclists and other sports enthusiasts have adhered strictly to the carbo-loading protocol and wouldn’t dare question this way of fuelling up. But studies have proven that ketosis (burning fat for fuel rather than glucose) can be helpful for those doing ultra-endurance events or just low-intensity exercise aimed at maintaining general overall health. So why did we think carbs were the way to go in the first place? In the late 1970s, a theory in physiology emerged that muscle glycogen (the carbs in our muscles) is the only factor that determines athletic performance. In other words, more carbs equal more muscle mass, equal more strength, equal better performance. Shortly there- after,…
