Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make reduced carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in the oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes onion, spinach, kidney bean & thyme)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' which exist in these fruits and vegetables are believed to have properties in fighting cancer.
Experts studying the nutritional effects of flavonoids think that they may well also have many other benefits to our wellbeing, amongst them, anti-candida and antitumor properties.
The majority of these are low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss regime.
