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 carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't add in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Whilst you can buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by simply using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, grind it up in your food processor or blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic family is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is not enough, hard medical proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
