Food Tips of the Week
Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make really good smoothies by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Ok, well, itís not technically cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with low carbohydrate yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbohydrates and make use of the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can possibly buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can also make them by using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the low carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well toasted, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in an airtight jar.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a natural compound and one of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is behind the red color of quite a few fruits and vegetables.
Usefully, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, it does not become less effective if cooked but is observably increased in efficacy by the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the chances of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to impede the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
