See your food in a new light - Eat Ting author Mpho Tshukudu's 5 nutrients for healthy eyes

Eat TingRemember your mom telling you to eat all your carrots if you want healthy eyes? Turns out, she was right.

Mpho Tshukudu, registered dietitian and co-author of Eat Ting: Lose Weight, Gain Health, Find Yourself with Anna Trapido, has a fantastic website where she shares helpful tips on healthy living. In one of these articles, entitled “Nutrition for healthy eyes/clear vision”, Tshukudu lists five nutrients that help to protect your vision. From Vitamin A and B to Flavonoids and Selenium, she explains why they are useful for healthy eyes and where they can be found.

Eat Ting is not a diet book. Instead, it offers healthy eating solutions based on traditional southern African food, and modern versions of time-honoured favourites.

 
Tshukudu writes that carrots really are good for your eyes, and so are sweet potatoes, butter, shrimp, anchovies, red wine and many more healthy foods.

Read the article:

Vitamin A (including beta carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin)
 
Beta carotene is a derivative of Vitamin A. It protects against blindness and dry eyes. Sources are green leafy vegetables (morogo, spinach, beetroot leaves rocket, watercress), orange and yellow vegetables (sweet potato, butternut, squash, carrots ) and animal products (milk, butter, eggs, shrimp).

Al die beste bakresepte in Koekedoor 2, saamgestel deur Errieda du Toit (Plus: Wen 1 van 5 boeke)

Koekedoor 2Koekedoor 2, saamgestel deur Errieda du Toit, verskyn eersdaags by Human & Rousseau:

Bak raak net gewilder by die dag: Die populariteit van die Koekedoor-programme is ’n sprekende bewys. Die boek vang die hoogtepunte van die kompetisie vas.

Daar is resepte vir beginnerbakkers asook fyngebak en pronkgebak om ervare bakkers te inspireer. Net die beste resepte is gekies vir die boek – al die wenners van elke episode, asook fyngebak deur die beoordelaars.

Oor die samesteller

Errieda du Toit is ’n bekende in koskringe en een van die meesterbreine agter Kokkedoor. Errieda was van die begin af deel van die program, en het die verfilming van die reeks in Prins Albert meegemaak. Saam met die drie gewilde beoordelaars en onder leiding van Human & Rousseau, het Errieda die resepte gekies en aangepas vir die tuiskombuis. Sy het die fyn oog en geoefende oordeel van ’n koskenner en weet wat vereis word van ’n groot kokkedoor!

Errieda is ’n gesoute kosmens met ’n passie vir onthoukos. Sy het kooktegnieke – van die basiese tot die gevorderde – bemeester en meng tradisie met hope kreatiwiteit om nostalgiese resepte vir die toekoms te herskep. Haar vorige boeke sluit in die gewilde Huiskok glanskok. Sy het ’n program op RSG en skryf gereeld vir ’n reeks drukmedia sowel as aanlyn.
