carrots, celery, and saffron threads. Bring the stock to a simmer.

reserve the stewing hen until cool enough to handle; then pick the
meat from the bones. Cut into neat little pieces. Strain the saffron
broth through a fine sieve. (Note: The soup can be made through this
step in advance. Simply frefrigerate broth and diced chicken meat for
2 to 3 days, or freeze the broth and the chicken meat in separate
convenienly sized containers. Be sure to label and date them. To
use, defrost, remove congealed fat, return the broth full boil, and
add the diced meat. Continue with recipe.) Add the corn, celery,
parsley, and cooked noodles to the broth. Return the soup to a simmer

Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your best loved chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you donít want to put in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
Brassicas, Wonder foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Broccoli, Mizuna and Daikon)
Vegetablesi in the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (including potassium and selenium), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.
In addition to their many other great health properties, the minerals, vitamins and nutrients in these are thought to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
