Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
As an alternative to focusing on the junk foods you ought to eliminate from your dietary regime, direct your attention to the sensible foods that you might want to introduce to your daily routine. If you are able to inject the recommended portions healthy fruit & vegetables into your meal plan, you will discover that stop feeling hungry and have a far lower chance of being seduced by those damaging mid-morning potato chips.
Some low carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't forget the fiber
Cutting the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for reduced carb recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carbohydrate full-sugar chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that as an alternative.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring compound and one of the carotenid family. It is behind the dark red color of some fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Unlike numerous nutrients, lycopene does not become less effective if subjected to heat, but is truly improved by being heated.
Its most important theraputic value is that it serves as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risk of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the strongest fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It is also thought by many experts to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
