|Black is the new green !|
I have always been a food lover !
and all my friends and family can vouch for that. From moving beyond traditional food dishes to openly experimenting new recipes and trying newer ingredients, i am never tired at trying. Be it the food from the streets, a plush restaurant or a simple home cooked meal, i have always enjoyed it equally ! sometimes not even considering the amount of calories and fat it delivers into my body.
But for the past few years as my preferences in life changed, so did change my food habits ! I came more closer to nature, natural and organic food.
On one of my routine search on some healthy yet unconventional food options available, i came across The Black Food ! Black superfoods for you.
Now i would not say we do not enjoy Caviar, blackberries or black truffles more but Black is certainly not a diners colour when it comes to a delicious, lip-smacking food. For most of us, the colour black on a food plate is repulsive. It gives an impression that the food is either burned, inedible or worse, poisonous. But Thanks to our chefs, who around the world are trying to change this attitude by incorporating the colour black in popular recipes and food.
Not just the colour but black food as well is catching up the trend in the world. though it has always been a part of certain cuisines like Japanese, Chinese and Mexican, due to the health benefits associated with them. Often food is black because of natural plant pigment called “anthocyanins” which have anti-inflammatory properties and offer protection against diabetes, heart diseases and cancer.
So lets have a look on some of the Black Super foods you can eat :
1) Black Tea
The good old black tea contains theaflavins (antioxidants) that a study suggests may improve recovery from muscle soreness after intense exercise. Drinking black tea may also lower your risk of having a heart attack.
2) Black Beans
The dark skins of these beans are packed with bioflavonoids — potent plant-based nutrients that may protect against cancer.
