Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The argument against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one fact that is usually overlooked, it is very hard (though not totally impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carb diet.
Reducing carbohydrates may mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which must be part of any sensible diet, in particular those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, leeks and welsh onion)
The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is precious little hard medical proof obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce the symptoms of colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be included in your diet system.
