canola oil. When hot, add the cumin seeds. Fry until light brown. Add

Simmer until vegetables are done. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro,
lemon juice and sliced tomato before serving.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst.

The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Increased consumption of animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the chance of heart problems.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys can be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity causes bone loss, but some of the scientific studies testing the theory have failed to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or bone damage.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring compound and one of the carotenid family. It is behind the dark red color of some fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Unlike numerous nutrients, lycopene does not become less effective if subjected to heat, but is truly improved by being heated.
Its most important theraputic value is that it serves as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risk of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the strongest fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It is also thought by many experts to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
