Eat 5 banana, 1orange , 1 apple. 2cup green tea and 2 cup of nescafe(coffee). Is it healthy?

No: Where is your protein? This is mostly an all sugar albeit natural sugar diet. You need a more balanced diet with protien and whole grains. This is not a healthy breakfast or diet. And tea AND coffee? I'd stick with just the green tea myself. ...Read more

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Sounds good to me: I recommend people eat fruits & vegetables of all colors as the colors are made by different beneficial micronutrients. It's great that you're eating the veggies you do & that you're getting colorful fruits, so you're doing fine, but consider adding in some red/orange/yellow peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes & purple cabbage. You might also consider seeing a good homeopath for your thought issues. ...Read more

Are Mung bean noodles a healthy source of carbohydrates?

Are Mung bean noodles a healthy source of carbohydrates?

Yes for Carbohydrate: They’re different from more traditional egg noodles or pasta because they’re made from mung bean starch.

If you prepare 54 grams of dehydrated noodles, you’ll get about 6 percent of the daily value of iron, selenium and niacin ...Read more

I am  allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut.  Could I have a protein intolerance?

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read more

Depends on goal: Lentils have high protein content. Cannellini beans have higher protein content, but also more carbohydrate and so for losing weight, may not be a better choice. Edamame has high protein, lower carbohydrate content, but soy beans have enzyme inhibitors which may block the action of enzymes for protein digestion. So, may be best to try 1/2 cup of lentils two meals daily, if trying to lose weight. ...Read more
