  2. Fibre for Health

    Fibre for health Fibre is more than nature’s scrubbing brush, it is also a sponge and bulking agent. Including adequate amounts of fibre into your diet keeps your digestive system and bowel movements in good working condition. Fibre comes in two forms: insoluble fibre and soluble fibre. Soluble fibre cannot be digested and passes through the digestive tract without being broken down. This ‘roughage’ aids the passage of waste through your gut. Soluble fibre absorbs many times its own weight in water, forming a sticky gel that lines the stomach and slows down digestion – and is thus helpful in regulating appetite. Soluble fibre also regulates insulin and has a beneficial impact on cholesterol. Fibre has another important role: feeding the bacteria that live in the gut. These colonies not only aide in digestion but play an important role in immunity. As a rule, aim for 20g to 30g of dietary fibre a day – and remember to drink plenty of water when increasing your fibre intake. If you are already including the meal solutions formulated by Xndo Food for Health, you’re already getting a healthful dose of fibre.

  3. MCT-Loaded Smoothie

    MCT-LOADED SMOOTHIE How do you take your good fat? For some, ensuring a good dose of MCT each day involves a rather oily swallow of coconut oil. While coconut oil is a good source of MCT, only about 60% of it contains actual MCT (less, actually if you want to get technical, because most of it is in the form of lauric acid, a ‘faux MCT’.  Not everyone can – or is willing to – load up on coconut oil each day, so we at Food for Health by Xndo have launched a much handier form of 100% MCT powder. Ready to eat, handy to carry around and most importantly much more potent! Plus, they come with a host of additional benefits such as prebiotics and dietary fibre. These sachets can be simply added to drinks or food – or even consumed directly! Here’re a few ways to MCT-boost your day. This ultra-rich smoothie will serve as a power breakfast or quick lunch to fuel your day   Ingredients: 1 sachet Xndo Protein Shake 1 sachet Xndo 100% MCT powder 1 small banana ¼ cup Greek yoghurt (optional) ½ cup water or milk (adjust amount to your personal preference)   Directions: Blend all the ingredients together till smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

  5. Eggs: Villain no more

    Once considered the villain of nutrition, eggs are no longer – pardon the pun – the bad eggs of the nutritional world. One vilified because of their relatively high cholesterol content (one large egg contains 213 mg of cholesterol), new science is turning the tables around. It has become evident that cholesterol in food is not the culprit in increasing the rates of heart disease. Added to this, new research is also shedding light on the role of cholesterol as beneficial not harmful (spoiler alert: inflammation is the culprit). Now that they have been given a pardon, it is time to welcome eggs back into your regular meal rotation and benefit from this nutritional powerhouse. Eggs contain the ‘gold standard’ for protein. One egg has only 75 calories but 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids. With lots of easily-digestible protein, eggs help keep you feeling full, aiding in healthy eating habits and weight management They are also high in lutein and zeaxanthin, disease-fighting carotenoids that may reduce the risk of diseases such as age-related macular degeneration. High in choline content, eggs enhance brain development and memory As if all these benefits are not enough, eggs are delicious and highly versatile pantry staple that makes a quick snack, or a welcome addition to jazz up any meal.

  6. Protein Shakes: Good for everyone

    Protein shakes are a great way to supplement your protein needs. While body builders have long used protein bars and shakes to boost their daily protein intake and build muscle post-workout, protein is not just for the fitness minded. An increased protein intake is beneficial for everyone. Protein builds muscle, balances blood sugar Protein helps our bodies build and maintain lean muscle, and provides a slow release of glucose into our blood stream, balancing blood sugar level and increasing satiety. All of which has positive effects on weight loss and general health. Snacking on a protein shake instead of other high carb fillers is a also good way to reduce overall daily calories while satisfying persistent hunger cravings. Choosing between the numerous available options can be confusing. Many are high in sugar and contain a lot of calories, defeating the purpose of using them. Others don’t contain enough protein to be beneficial, or the protein is of the wrong type. Some contain undesirable food substitutes and chemicals, or taste awful. To keep you from straying toward high calorie alternatives, a protein shake must be something that is easy to prepare and which you enjoy drinking. All protein is not the same A big differences between shakes is the protein they contain. The type of protein matters because some are better than others, and all have slightly different properties. One of the best and most popular protein additives is whey because it contains an impressive array of vitamins and minerals, as well as being a proven muscle builder. While there are other protein powders with more specific benefits, whey is a good all rounder, and a natural choice for a multi-purpose protein shake. To make it a bit easier to choose, here are some guidelines on what makes a good protein shake: Contains at least 40 percent of high quality protein - preferably more. Most shakes contain some carbohydrate for quick energy release, but each shake should not contain more than 200 calories in total. If possible choose a shake that includes heart healthy fats like MCT and Omega 3. No trans fat. It tastes good, and is easy to prepare. Xndo protein shakes are delicious and mix immediately in water. They are specifically designed to supplement protein intake as part of a protein dominant diet based upon a food pyramid that avoids sugar, emphasizes protein and fiber, and limits carbohydrate. Xndo shakes contain at least 45% (20g) high quality whey protein each, and are less than 170 calories.
