The winners of the contest “Healthy dish” announced in social networks by the regional center for medical prevention were named in Yamal. Northerners were happy to share creative ideas for healthy cooking and eating. 56 applications were received from Nadym, Noviy Urengoy, Aksarka, Krasnoselkoup and other towns and settlements of the region, more than 30 recipes were presented by residents of Labytnangi. Under the terms of the contest the participants were to cook a dish, to describe a step-by-step recipe and to specify the calorie content. According to the head doctor of the center Sergey Tokarev, within the contest it was planned to show residents of Yamal that healthy dishes can also be delicious, affordable and easy to perform. Creative design was also taken into account: when food looks beautiful, it causes appetite, gastric juice is more actively produced and digestion is easier.
But not all the dishes are among the winners because they did not meet the criteria for healthy cooking and eating. Thus, the recipes where it needs “to fry to golden brown” were immediately rejected because of the glycation reaction. The end products of this reaction are very dangerous: they are associated with development of obesity, diabetes and other diseases. That is why products need to be stewed, boiled or baked. The recipes, where it needs to use sausage, canned food, mayonnaise, margarine did not pass the competitive selection: semi-finished products with a lot of fat and salt can not be considered healthy products.
The jury evaluated the recipes in five nominations. The first place with the recipe of “Cottage cheese mini-cheesecakes” on oat bran for “Healthy breakfast” was taken by Yevgeniy Gavrilyuk. Homemade berries paste by Svetlana Kornitskaya was recognized as the most “Healthy dessert”, which she suggests to make of northern berries, preserving all natural vitamins as much as possible. In the nomination “Healthy hot dish” the victory was won by Maria Minayeva for the recipe of “Partridge soup”. The diploma of the winner in the nomination “Healthy snack” will be given to Tatyana Istomina for the recipe “Bruschetta with avocado with salmon and cottage cheese”. The recipe of baked broad whitefish (tsar-style) by Polina Lantukh became the winner in the nomination “Healthy dinner”.
Prizes were given to dishes such as cottage cheese pudding and oatmeal with berries, baked pumpkin with apples, parfait with baked apples, yogurt and muesli, cottage cheese mousse with strawberry sauce and “Cottage cheese Hippo”. The jury was also interested in the recipes of cutlets with stewed vegetables, golden chicken pieces baked in the oven, low-calorie pies with chicken and cabbage “Health”, salad “Be healthy without doctors”, rolls with prunes and walnuts.
“In general, the majority of the recipes comply with the principles of healthy nutrition, northerners willingly use berries, vegetables, fish, meat of low-fat varieties”, commented Sergey Tokarev. – “Children participated in cooking of many dishes. And this is great, because the most stable habits are formed at young age, so it is very important that they are healthy”.
