Experts urge Filipinos to embrace plant-based diet to boost health amid pandemic

Experts urge Filipinos to embrace plant-based diet to boost health amid pandemic

  • April 3, 2021

MANILA— In a society where meat consumption is heavy, are consumers ready to go plant-based? 

Experts have urged Filipinos to embrace a plant-based diet as meat products have become expensive, stressing several health benefits one could get by going meat-free to boost the body’s defenses amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Heavily plant-based diets can lower a person’s chances of suffering from non-communicable diseases, according to Philippine Society of Nutritionist-Dietitians public relations officer Jake Andal.

Andal, who advocates for the dietary shift, told ABS-CBN News that cancer, heart, and renal diseases could be prevented by eradicating or limiting a person’s meat consumption. 

“All of them can be managed by diet. All of them can be prevented by good nutrition. Studies have long been elucidating na there is a huge relationship between plant-based diets and non-communicable disease prevention,” Andal said in an interview. 

Plant-based diets could help increase antioxidants and fiber intake, which protects the heart and kidneys. This could also help in keeping a person mentally healthy, he said. 

WATCH: 

Too much protein, he pointed out, could “take a toll” on our kidneys. 

“We also see relationships with cancer prevention because of antioxidants, and fiber as well. We also see the management or prevention of mental diseases or mental health disorders because we see that there is a link between diet and mental health,” he said. 

“One of the facets of good nutrition – which is a common denominator in these researches, is the plant-heavy diet,” he added. 

Jewel Maribie Luis, a former project officer at the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI), echoed Andal, and said shifting to plant-based meals could also boost a person’s immune system. 

Luis explained that a plant-rich diet is a good source of fiber. This, she said, helps the gut’s integrity, aids digestion, and nutrient absorption. 

“Plant-based food items are good sources of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants that is deficient in meat products like beef and pork,” said Luis. 

“These nutrients are vital to maintain the function of our immune system, circulatory system and other organ system to fight diseases,” she added. 

She also emphasized that going plant-based is different from being vegan, each of which has a different discipline.

“When we say vegan diets, it means eliminating all animal products, including non-food items that are created by animal source, while plant-based diets do not necessarily eliminate animal products, but focus on eating mostly plants, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes,” she noted.

Andal, meanwhile, said it is high time to start going plant-based to strengthen one’s immune system, coupled by standard health protocols against COVID-19. 

“I think the missing piece in disease prevention… is also eating healthy or eating properly. And one of the facets again of eating healthy is consuming a plant-heavy diet,” he said. 

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in early March called on the government to invest in “plant-based meat” amid high prices of pork, chicken and other meats. 

PETA said a plant-based diet will give people more options, citing health and convenience benefits. 

IMPROVING DIET QUALITY 

The Philippine Society of Nutritionist-Dietitians recommended increasing portions of fruits and vegetables in meals, as also recommended by the FNRI. 

This is also cheaper, the group said, compared to meals with meats. 

If a person, meanwhile, is looking to increase his protein intake, there are vegetables rich in protein such as garbanzos, nuts, monggo, and red kidney beans, among others. 

“It is a misconception that for example, beans, nuts, and seeds and other proteins from vegetables are inferior to your animal proteins… these plant-based proteins contain vitamins, minerals, and fiber that animal proteins do not [have]” said Andal. 

FROM OUR ARCHIVES:

Luis, on the other hand, emphasized that food preparation also plays a role on nutrients in a dish. She said it would show how a dish could be considered healthy or unhealthy. 

She also pointed out that the public should refrain from frying and overcooking vegetables in order to retain their nutrition. 

“Kapag nagluto tayo ng pinakbet ‘di ba marami siyang laman na gulay, and we all know that gulay is healthy, but kapag inalam natin kung paano siya niluto, minsan nasosobrahan ng asin o bagoong which is high in sodium, minsan naman [overcooked] ‘yung gulay which means that karamihan sa nutrients nung gulay sa pinakbet ay nasira o nawala na,” she explained. 

(When we cook pinakbet, it has a lot of vegetables. We think this is healthy, but it depends on how we cook it. Sometimes we put salt or bagoong in the dish too much, which is high in sodium. Sometimes, we also overcook the vegetables, that’s why a lot of the nutrients we are supposed to get from pinakbet have already been destroyed.)

The following are her recommendations for the correct way of cooking and eating fruits and vegetables: 

  • In cooking vegetable dishes, rinse ingredients well and do not overcook to retain nutrients. 
  • To make a healthier meatless dish, avoid frying as it destroys essential nutrients not only in vegetables but also in meat products. 
  • Steamed, boiled, broiled and grilled are recommended
  • Avoid using too much oil, sugar, and salt in cooking.
  • Consume fruits that are fresh, especially citrus ones

Both Andal and Luis also agreed that fish is a good meat alternative because of its protein content. Tilapia, bangus, salmon, tuna, and sardines contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are important in lowering one’s blood pressure. 

RECIPES 

Here are some of the meat-free recipes promoted by the FNRI’s menu guide calendars in recent years:

Can Diet and Lifestyle Choices Affect COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy?

Can Diet and Lifestyle Choices Affect COVID-19 Vaccine Efficacy?

  • March 19, 2021

You’re ready for normal life to resume and are signed up to get your COVID-19 vaccine. Go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back — health experts would applaud you for this choice.

But how can you make sure you get the most out of your dose or two? Does your diet matter? How about lifestyle choices?

If you have these questions, you’re not alone. There are even supplements on the market that claim they can boost your immune system, increasing the effectiveness of your vaccine.

Whether that’s true — and whether you can really optimize your body’s vaccine response — is up for debate. Here’s what you need to know, so you can rest easy after signing up to get inoculated.

Here's Why I Started Eating Honey Every Day

Here’s Why I Started Eating Honey Every Day

  • March 12, 2021

Let’s be totally clear here- I am not the epitome of health by any means, and taking health advice from me would be like taking English lessons from someone who only speaks fluent French. (I actually do speak a tinge of French, oui!)

Anyway, I have recently started daily workouts at the Kennebec Valley YMCA to try and shave off a little of my… umm, ‘extra padding’. As such, I’m also trying to modify my diet, too. Sadly, losing weight and maintaining a healthy ones means fewer chicken baskets and chips. Wicked bummer!

My wife is someone who makes protein/nutrition shakes each morning when she gets up and recently I’ve jumped on board, too. The great thing about it is you can really make them however the heck you want. I’ve been using chocolate protein and mixing in almond butter, almond milk, spinach, strawberries, blueberries, carrots and whatever other produce I can find rolling around in the fridge. It may seem like all these ingredients would taste bad together, but the chocolate hides it all well!

Well last week Keri brought home some honey for a chicken recipe she was making. A huge bottle for only needing one tablespoon. So I decided I would try adding some to my smoothies. The result? It’s amazing. Not only is it amazing, there are some pretty ‘sweet’ health benefits to eating honey, too.

Like anything else you want to make sure that you eat it in moderation because, in essence, it’s a natural sugar. According to Healthline, honey in moderation can help lower you bad cholesterol levels, lower triglycerides (a type of fatty acid), and in turn help lower your risk of heart disease.

Additionally, there is some research that says locally sourced honey from where you live can help combat seasonal allergies. I suffer big time from these and may try it out as we get closer to ‘pollen season’. However, there is also research out there that indicates the allergy benefit may be an ‘old wives tale’. Either way, I think I’ll give it a try and see for myself. Honey is cheaper than Claritin! Hit me up if you know where I can get some tasty local, organic honey.

Current Blood Supply Is The Worst In Decades

Current Blood Supply Is The Worst In Decades

  • March 8, 2021

There is an urgent appeal for East Texans to donate blood as the current available blood supply is critically low.

Throughout the last year blood donations in East Texas and around the state and nation have been down because of the ongoing pandemic. The blood supply here in East Texas has been low, but due to the recent extreme winter weather event that stopped East Texas in its tracks, it has really affected the available blood supply here in the area. The current amount of pints of blood on hand to be used by patients in the hospital are at the lowest levels in decades.

Blood donations usually happen across East Texas on a daily basis for those that give regularly to first time donors. Seeing how much of the area was affected by icy travel conditions, power outages, lack of water and heat, those donations came to a screeching halt for four consecutive days. As a result of not having power and water at many of the donation locations, blood banks and donation centers were forced to close down. While all of this is going on, there is still a need for blood as patients’ lives depend on blood for transfusions though.

Carter BloodCare‘s president and CEO, Dr. Merlyn Sayers, put out the following message on just how critically low and urgent it is for us to donate blood.

If you are healthy and meet the eligibility requirements, you are encouraged to set up an appointment and donate blood or visit a mobile site to donate to help those that desperately need it. The American Red Cross is also in need of blood donations and you may schedule an appointment to give blood at their Tyler facility or any scheduled blood drive.

Niagara Falls Police Asking For After Person Hit By Car

Niagara Falls Police Asking For After Person Hit By Car

  • February 17, 2021

If you know anything about this accident, you are asked to call the Niagara Falls Police. A person was struck by a vehicle on Lewiston Rd on Tuesday afternoon.

According to a report, a 21-year-old man was taken to Erie County Medical Center in stable condition. Police haven’t said if the driver involved will be facing any charges. They’re asking anyone who saw what happened to give them a call.

There have been plenty of accidents this winter. The weather has been more difficult to manage on the roads and, at least in the morning, we have been reporting and receiving more accidents than I recall getting in the past. The cold air and fine, slick, snow has made travel tough. After speaking with a few legal experts on the show, there are a few things that anyone who is involved in an accident should remember. Filing a police report and getting photos of the scene, the damage and the conditions is also key to help with any investigation or claim following an accident.

Stay safe and stay warm! It was a chilly 1 degree on Wednesday morning and the sidewalks and secondary streets were slippery.

Incorporate These 5 Lifestyle Changes Today

  • February 12, 2021

For a healthy immune system you must make certain changes in your diet and lifestyle. Read here to know some tips you should follow.


Do Not Fall For Immunity-Boosting Quick Fixes: Incorporate These 5 Lifestyle Changes Today

A healthy lifestyle helps you boost functioning of immune system

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Vitamin C helps you boost functioning of the immune system
  2. Regular exercise helps you stay fit and boost immunity
  3. Control stress as it may harm your immune system

A strong immune system helps you keep multiple health issues at bay. It is your body’s defence mechanism that helps you stay disease-free. A wide range of factors can affect your immune system. Not following a healthy diet and lifestyle can deteriorate your immunity, making you prone to diseases. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the importance of building a strong immune system has been stressed enough. But there is no shortcut to achieving strong immunity in a day or two. “Immunity is not built in a day!” says Nutritionist Lovneet Batra. In this article, here are some tips that can help you enhance your immune system.

How to build immunity?

The nutritionist explains in one of her posts, “2020 catapulted immunity as the topmost buzzword of the decade. Everyone wants a quick fix in the form of a drink, a nuskha and tablet. But immunity is not built in a day! It is what you nurture over the years with the food you eat, the lifestyle you adopt and how well you keep stress off from your life.”

She also explains that immunity is not built by having just a certain herb or tea. It is a lifestyle habit that is responsible for maintaining and boosting it.

1. Eat a healthy diet

Vitamin C has gained huge popularity in the past year as an immunity-boosting ingredient. Load up your diet with enough vitamin C. Also, keep your gut healthy with enough probiotics, fruits and vegetables. An optimum intake of vitamin and mineral will ensure that your hormones are in place and your immune system is not fending off internal crises before battling against bacterial and viral infections.
