Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be modified to make use of a sugar replacement like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work for everything, but it gives very good results for the most part.
* Make low carb breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
Whilst you may be able to buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by simply using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a baking tray. Once it is well toasted, whizz it in your food processor or blender. Keep in a tupperware container.

Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your diet system.
