Food Tips of the Week
Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Fiber is important:
Decreasing the carbs in your diet often results in reduction in fiber also. Look out for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are fiber-rich to restore the balance.
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't mix in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Chop up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The alliaceae family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not enough, definitive proof available, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so make sure you add them to your weight loss regime.
