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 reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Use soy flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most cases, you may convert your most popular recipes that use conventional wheat flour to use these lowcarb alternatives.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carbohydrate diet needs great care in monitoring you energy levels, as the energy provided by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, papaya & tomatoes)
The chemical lypcopene is a simple coloring compound and member of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the dark red colour of many foods.
Unlike most other vitamins, lycopene does not become less effective if cooked but is in actuality improved by going through the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main medical value is that it behaves as an antioxidant and is thought to be of use in the fight to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also thought by many researchers to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
