Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some low carb diet guidlines:
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you have to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. Most of the time, you may convert your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these alternatives.
* It is possible to make wonderful smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
I know, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you really want smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using low carbohydrate yogurt and fruit. Clearly, you will need to ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as you need the fiber.
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.
