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 carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't add in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Whilst you can buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by simply using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, grind it up in your food processor or blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
Cruciferous vegetables, Tasty superfoods that aid Dieting
(includes Cauliflower, Cauliflower, Turnips and Radishes)
Altthough not always popular with children, these vegetables are full of vitamins (folate and vitamin c), minerals (eg. selenium), fibre, chlorophyll, antioxidents, indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanates..
Over and above their numerous beneficial effects, the minerals and nutrients in these are believed by nutritionalists to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
