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 carb diet pointers:
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for deep fried foods.
Although you can probably buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can also make them by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is hard, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in an airtight container.
* Make great smoothies by using reduced carb yogurt.
Yes, itís not technically cooking, but if you adore smoothies you can make them with reduced carb yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use all of the fruit as the fiber is important too.
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.
