Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Frozen Fish Can Taste as Good as Fresh!
One of the problems with using frozen fish is that it often tastes bland and stale after it has been defrosted. This can be easily overcome by defrosting the fish in a bowl of milk, which brings back the 'nice' taste of fresh fish.
Blueberries, A Superfood that Tastes Great Too!
Blueberries are packed with phytoflavinoids and antioxidants - both extremely good for your health. They are also rich in vitamin C, something that most of us could do with 'getting a bit more of', and also quite high in potassium. Some expert nutritionalists claim that eating blueberries helps to reduce the risk of serious complaints like cancer and heart disease
