Recipe Preparation

REDUCE CHOLESTEROL ~ Use vegetable oil or margarine instead of butter
~ Substitute 2 egg whites for 1 egg, or use egg substitute ~ Use more
vegetables and grains and less meat in recipe ~ Use soy-based product
to replace part of meat eg. tofu ~ Use nonfat milk products instead
of whole milk

REDUCE FAT CONTENT ~ Use reduced calorie mayonnaise and salad
dressing ~ Blend cottage cheese or yogurt with milk for sour cream
topping ~ Replace regular whipping cream with low-cal topping or
yogurt ~ Remove visible fat from meat and skin from poultry before
cooking ~ Decrease oil in marinades and salad dressing; increase
vinegar, water and seasonings ~ Use foods canned in their own juice
or water ~ De-fat meat drippings by refrigerating and skimming fat
off the top ~ Decrease the amount of fat used in baked goods by 1/3
to 1/2 and increase fluids called for to reach desired consistency. ~
Cheese that is finely grated or thinly sliced goes further ~ Pour
some of the fat off the top of "natural" peanut butters

REDUCE SODIUM CONTENT ~ Use low-salt or no-salt-added products ~
Increase your use of herbs and spices in place of salt in recipes ~
Use fresh foods whenever possible in place of canned or processed
(soup mixes, cured meats etc) or rinse canned foods (tuna) with water
~ Do not add salt to water when cooking pasta or other foods

REDUCE SUGAR CONTENT ~ Decrease the amount of sugar called for in
traditional recipes by at least 1/3; substitute fruit juices, nectars
or pureed fruits. ~ Use fruit canned in water or fruit juice ~ Use
non caloric sweeteners if needed to increase the sweetness of a
recipe without added calories. (Most baked desserts require at least
3/4 tsp. sugar per serving to achieve a desirable flavor.)

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

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.
The case against low carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys can become overworked and that the resultant change in acid levels in the blood causes bone loss, but some of the scientifc research testing the theory have struggled to find significant evidence of deterioration of the kidneys or bone damage.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects observed, such as feeling tired, diarrhea, constipation, or bad headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes lettuce, kohlrabi, soya and cayenne)

The flavonoids present in these fruits and vegetables are believed to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Specialists researching the medical effects of flavonoids believe they might also have many other benefits to our health, including anti-dermatitis and anti-inflammatory activities..
The majority of these are low in calories, so you should add them to your diet.
