Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, repalce it with soya flour or a bake mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. Most of the time, you can change your favorite recipes that use wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Most recipes that need sugar can be adapted to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it might not work for every recipe, but it does bake up nice most of the time.
