Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* You can create really nice smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you are missing your smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as the fiber is important too.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes guava, papaya & tomato sauce)
The nutrient lypcopene is a natural coloring agent and part of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is responsible for the dark red color of some fruit and vegetables.
Fortunately, unlike many other nutritional compounds, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, instead it is in actuality improved by going through the cooking process.
Its most important theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the battle to reduce the probabilty of cancer.
Lycopene is the most efficacious quencher of singlet oxygen, which is associated with skin aging. It's also thought to block the progression of atherosclerosis.
