Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, repalce it with soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most cases, you may change your favorite recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these lowcarb alternatives.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes apricots, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a simple compound used to color foods and part of the carotenid family. This chemical is accountable for the dark red color of a good number of fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Fortunately, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical does not become less effective if heated during cooking, but is noticeably enhanced by being cooked.
Its most interesting nutritional contribution is that it behaves as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
