Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Fiber is important:
Decreasing the carbs in your diet often results in reduction in fiber also. Look out for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are fiber-rich to restore the balance.
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't mix in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Chop up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
