Are frozen vegetables healthy?

Have you packed your lunch today? Can you see the little frost on my broccoli? Yes, it's frozen! There's nothing wrong with frozen veg as they are snap frozen soon after harvest and sealed with nutrients. Sometimes they have just as much or more nutrients than fresh. It's always good to have some frozen veg in your pantry! Baked salmon with peppered carrots in extra virgin olive oil and broccoli. Veggie serves (3): 1 cup carrot, 0.5 cup broccoli. Meat/alternative serves (1): 100g salmon. Energy of meal= 1400kJ. If you are hungry have a serve of grains (1 bread slice= 400kJ) or fruit (1= 300-500kJ) or dairy (1 small tub low sugar low fat yoghurt= 250-400kJ). Happy healthy lunching 😋

Q: Does too much protein have effects on my kidneys?

After consumption, protein is broken down and absorbed as amino acids through the gastrointestinal tract for the body’s use. Excess amino acids are converted to carbohydrate for energy or stored as fat. At the same time, this process produces urea which is a waste product excreted by the kidneys. In healthy adults, higher protein intakes were associated with greater increases in glomerular filtration rate (rate of kidney filtering waste from blood), urea in blood, creatinine in blood and urinary calcium excretion. However, it is unclear whether these changes are significant i.e. any clinical effects or meaning. Note: Healthy adults= Good to stay within the guidelines of RDI for age and gend
