"Still, it is necessary for nutrition education and support to be brought to the communities and populations most at risk."One way may be to approach the shift from a slightly different angle, Heller said."Instead of making substitute dishes such as 'healthy fried chicken' -- since it will not taste anything like its deep-fried namesake -- alternate dishes may be a better approach.However, it's important to note that the study wasn't designed to prove a cause-and-effect relationship between these foods and heart disease, only an association.
Patterns included the "convenience" pattern made up of pasta dishes, Mexican food, Chinese food and pizza; the "plant-based" pattern included mostly vegetables, fruits, cereal, beans, yogurt, poultry and fish; the "sweets" pattern consisting of added sugars, desserts, chocolate, candy and sweetened breakfast foods; and the "alcohol/salads" pattern, which included beer, wine, liquor, green leafy vegetables, tomatoes and salad dressings.
Those who regularly ate a typical Southern diet tended to be men, blacks and people who had not graduated from high school, the study found.
I don't know about whether they degenerate quicker in the fridge, but it does make them more difficult to cook.
A 3 minute egg for example, is cooked for three minutes providing that the egg starts at room temperature. Eggs left out on the counter don't last very long (a couple of weeks if kept cool), but they maintain a fairly high level of quality until they "go off".
Fried chicken, sweet tea and greens cooked in bacon fat -- delicious hallmarks of a Southern diet -- may increase your risk for a heart attack, a new study suggests.
Lead researcher James Shikany, a professor of nutritional epidemiology at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, said that regularly eating Southern-style dishes was linked to a 56 percent increased risk for heart attack during the almost six years of the study.Thus, one might encourage Southern food eaters to opt for oven-fried nut-crusted chicken.Or New York-style collard greens simmered with extra virgin olive oil, tomatoes, garlic and organic vegetable stock," she said.Eggs will last longer in the fridge, provided you don't put them in the door.The cold does make them last, but constant changes in temperature can make them go off quicker.The researchers also found -- unsurprisingly -- that people who regularly consumed Southern fare tended to live in the so-called "Stroke belt." This includes North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana, the researchers said.
