1.    Date is harmful and causes obesity because of its sugar!
This is a totally wrong belief because dates contain only 68% sugar, while other carbohydrates are 100% sugar. Dates also help balance sugar level because their fiber prevents the sugar from raising the level of insulin in the bloodstream.

Try Goody Spreadable Date on breakfast or eat dates with peanut butter. Discover many more recipes on our website or Goody Kitchen magazines.

2.    Keep the white and dump the yolk!
This belief is based on an outdated common concept that egg increases the cholesterol content because of the yolk. Actually, yolk contains a higher number of nutrients as it has 40% of the total protein in the egg and 90% of the calcium, iron and B complex vitamin.

Try eggs in these delicious recipes: broad bean tagine with eggs, egg boats with mayonnaise and egg bread moulds. Learn how to make the perfect hard-boiled eggs and many more on our website and Goody Kitchen magazines.

3.    White potatoes are pure carbohydrates with no nutritional value!
Many still believe that white potatoes are pure carbohydrates with no nutritional value. In fact, they contain high levels of dietary fiber that facilitate digestion and provide satiety and a considerable percentage of potassium. Potassium is known to help the heart, blood pressure, muscles, kidneys and nerves. Try the potato in: potato with mayonnaise salad, potato balls baked or mashed potato pie and many more recipes on our website or Goody Kitchen magazines.
