Canned Foods For Special Diets Recipe
1 no ingredients
The cost of commercially canned special diet food often prompts
interest in preparing these products at home. Some low-sugar and
low-salt foods may be easily and safely canned at home. However the
color, flavor and texture of these foods may be different than
expected and be less acceptable.
CANNING WITHOUT SUGAR
In canning regular fruits without sugar, it is very important to
select fully ripe but firm fruits of the best quality. Prepare these
as described for hot-packs for each fruit, but use water or regular
unsweetened fruit juices instead of sugar syrup. (For more
information see additional publications for individual fruits.) Juice
made from the fruit being canned is best. Blends of unsweetened
apple, pineapple, and white grape juice are also good for filling
over solid fruit pieces. Adjust headspaces and lids and use the
processing recommendations given for regular fruits. Add sugar
substitutes, if desired, when serving.
CANNING WITHOUT SALT (REDUCED SODIUM)
To can tomatoes, vegetables, meats, poultry, and seafood, follow the
normal procedures for canning, but omit the salt. In these products,
salt seasons the food but is not necessary to ensure its safety. Add
salt substitutes, if desired, when serving.

Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Some are only a little decreased and in some instances still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
