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 low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Don't ignore the fiber
Decreasing the carbohydrates in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Check for low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* It is possible to make superb smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with low carb yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to ensure you use fruit that is low in carbs and use all of the fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
Superfoods containing flavonoids
(inlcudes cranberry, kale, scarlet runner bean and basil)

Doctors who have been studying the properties of flavonoids suspect that they may well also have many other health benefits, amongst them, anti-asthma and anti-platelet powers.
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
