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.
The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Eliminating carbohydrates might mean missing out on needed nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which must be part of any sensible diet, especially those that we get from vegetables, grains and fruits.
Higher consumption of animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which some authorities believe will increase the probability of heart conditions.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much real proof obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so are ideal for including in your weight loss regime.
