Desperation Diet Dip Recipe
1 pt low-cal cottage cheese
3 large cloves of fresh garlic, minced
1 1/2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp wine vinegar
Another of my recipes. This one goes well when you're feeding people
who are ready to party, but are also trying to diet. Has a very nice
garlicky tang to it. Use it either with raw vegetables or any kind of
cracker or diet cracker.
« tsp Italian seasoning Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients together (you can even beat this mixture until
smooth if you're going to be dipping things like cauliflower in it).
Replace in the cottage cheese container. Cover and refrigerate for at
least an hour and preferably overnight. At party time, remove from
refrigerator and serve either picnic-style in the cottage cheese
container or put in a bowl for serving. Sprinkle a bit of paprika on
the top for color.

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:
* Dietary fiber is important
Decreasing the carbs in your meals usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. When it is well toasted, process it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in a tupperware jar or container.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
