Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for deep fried foods.
Whilst you can sometimes buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may make them at home by using low carb bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a baking tray. Once it is well browned, whizz it in your blender. To store, keep in an airtight container.
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Most recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It is not exactly the same so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work for everything, but it does a decent job for the most part.
Superfoods containing flavonoids
