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 lower carb diet pointers:
* It is possible to make superb smoothies with reduced carb yogurt.
Admittedly, it is not really cooking, but if you are missing your smoothies you can make them with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Clearly, you should ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
Brassicas, Super foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Celery, Mustard greens and Chinese cabbage)
Known as cruciferous vegetables, these are jam-packed with vitamins (including vitamin c and folate), minerals (including potassium and selenium), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.
Amongst many health giving properties, the vitamins and nutrients in these are believed by nutritionalists to reduce the risk of cancer.
