Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
The case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is very hard (although certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Eliminating carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those obtained from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The onion family of vegetables is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is too little scientific proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce problems with blood circulation, arteriosclerosis and insomnia.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so make sure you add them to your diet system.
