Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use soy flour or baking mix.
When you have to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins bake mix. Most of the time, you can change your favorite recipes that use white flour to make use of these.
Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and winter squash)
These orange and green vegetables and fruits have high levels of the carotenoids believed play a key role in cancer prevention, spefically cancer of the esophagus. Many are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss program.
