(They 'stuff' the Brie with 1/4 cup sliced, toasted almonds and
1/4 cup chopped parsley instead of Boursin)
* Boursin cheese is a spreadable garlic and herb cheese. Boursin
Poivre contains a lot of black pepper for those who like pepper.
Boursin is available in many grocery stores but can almost certainly
be found in higher quality produce and specialty stores. If Boursin
or Boursin Poivre cannot be found, Alouette can be used as a
substitute although it is not as high quality as Boursin, in my

Food Tips of the Week
Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a good substitute like splenda. It is not exactly the same so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for everything, but it gives pretty good results most of the time.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Our bodies need energy, and carbs are a rapid acting energy source. A reduced carb diet needs extreme care in controlling your energy levels, as the energy provided by protein and fat is less efficient.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)

Even though there is not much real proof obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so are ideal for including in your weight loss regime.
