Food Tips of the Week
Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Fiber is crucial
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to fiber reduction also. Check for low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Make reduced carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can sometimes buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the low carb bread in a gas or electric oven on a sheet of baking paper. When it is quite hard and crispy, grind it in your blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and green onion)
The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific evidence published, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to aid in colds, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every diet.
