Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Dietary fiber is essential Decreasing the carbs in your diet usually results in reduction in fiber also. Look at low carb recipes that are fiber-rich balance the equation.

* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar. Recipes that call for sugar can be modified to make use of a good substitute like splenda. It has a different density so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for every recipe, but it gives pretty good results for the most part.

Carotenoid foods
(includes parsley, rose hip puree and sweet potatoes)
These orange and green foods are rich in alpha-carotene and beta-carotene thought by doctors to play a role in helping stop cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. Most are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
