Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Make reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Whilst you can buy low carb bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in a preheated oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is well toasted, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a natural compound and one of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is behind the red color of quite a few fruits and vegetables.
Usefully, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, it does not become less effective if cooked but is observably increased in efficacy by the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the chances of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to impede the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
