Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* You can create really nice smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you are missing your smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as the fiber is important too.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The alliaceae family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not enough, definitive proof available, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so make sure you add them to your weight loss regime.
