Healthy Food Recipes 

Benefits of food recipes would largely depend on the food which is used in a particular recipe. If you use soy as a main ingredient in a recipe then that food recipe becomes rich in proteins and good quality fats. The omega-3 fatty acids in soy will help to decrease the cholesterol levels, maintain a healthy blood pressure, decrease platelet aggregation and have an anti-inflammatory effect which is beneficial in conditions like arthritis. The fiber present in soy will help to maintain blood glucose levels, cholesterol levels and thus help in conditions like diabetes, heart diseases, obesity and stroke. Similarly if a food recipe has tomato or tomato sauce – a fruit as a main ingredient then the lycopene from the tomato sauce would have a protective effect against various cancers like prostate cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer and also protect the heart due to its potent antioxidant activities.

A simple recipe like a mango shake will not only provide good calories but also provide proteins from milk, vitamin A from mango and milk both and good fats and sugar. Different food recipes can be useful according to the occasion, like if you have a ice cream party at home then different ice cream recipes and chilled dessert recipes would be of great use to please your guests.
