Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make delicious smoothies using reduced carb yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really call it cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you should ensure you use fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
* Fiber is essential
Decreasing the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction as well. Check for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes apricots, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a simple compound used to color foods and part of the carotenid family. This chemical is accountable for the dark red color of a good number of fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Fortunately, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical does not become less effective if heated during cooking, but is noticeably enhanced by being cooked.
Its most interesting nutritional contribution is that it behaves as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
