Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It is not exactly the same so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for everything, but it gives very good results for the most part.
* Use soy flour or soy baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, repalce it with soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins soya baking mix. In many cases, you can convert your best loved recipes that use normal wheat flour to use these.
Cruciferous vegetables, Superfoods that help with Dieting
(includes Broccoli, Celery, Collard greens and Rutabaga)
These cruciferous vegetables are jam-packed with vitamins (folate and vitamin c, for example), minerals (eg. potassium), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.
Over and above their most other great health properties, the vitamins and nutrients in these are believed by scientists to reduce the risk of cancer.
