Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your best loved chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you donít want to put in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
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.
