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 lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Although you can possibly buy low carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a baking tray. Once it is hard, grind it up in your food mill. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
* Don't skip meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carbohydrate diet needs more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy given by protein and fat is much slower acting.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, mangos and winter squash)
These colorful foods are rich in carotenes thought by doctors to play a role in helping prevent cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach and lesophagus. Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
